    Recently taken delivery of Cross Turismo Turbo s

    Looks amazing! Making me rethink about adding black handles on my CT4S Crayon build….! Which interior did you go for?

    Need to lock in options, need help on options!

    That looks great. How about another idea - depending on what you’re used to in terms of power, and if you need AWD or not, I suggest a RWD with a few more toys on it for £92k. http://www.porsche-code.com/PNXX13G2 If sticking with the 4S I’d just add the crested front headrests for £160, the...

    Need to lock in options, need help on options!

    Before involving my wife in the spec’ing process and having to fork out unbudgeted £ for Crayon paint, I was debating the whites. The standard one looks as amazing as the metallic… think Audi Ibis white vs Glacier if you’ve seen them. A flat, warmer finish looks very modern on the Taycan...

    Need to lock in options, need help on options!

    And my 2cts on further alterations - Flip to free white to fund mission Es in matching white - I don’t do much night driving so would put electric charging port covers above auto dimming mirrors (black trim on them looks cool too) - 14 way seats are the same as 8 way, just adding electric...

    Need to lock in options, need help on options!

    I would have made the same hard choice as you - best wheels (to my taste) would have been above full leather. Mission Es and white PSCBs calipers are part of a signature look… and standard interior, while not featuring a particularly premium feel for that price point, is fine (not much hard...

    Available Allocations & Incoming Taycans @ MSRP

    Interesting to note that he has so many sedans and almost 0 CT. Feels like the interest for the slightly more practical shape is real! Also interesting to read that some US dealers resort to proactive selling and default spec’ing to flog their allocations while in the UK people wait for about a...

    Cannot decide on color/interior

    Looking forward to anyone with chalk / Bordeaux combo pics posting them here - getting closer to confirm that combo as well on CT4S but currently still spec’d with chalk paint / chalk leather / neodyme accents

    Delivery! Cross Turismo 4S in Crayon/Crayon with CT design wheels - Just collected

    That’s brilliant, thanks so much! Is the car on the 20” Turbo S for winter? I was really tempted by the GTS as it comes with loads of things I had ticked as extras on 4S and therefore is almost the same cost but ultimately the CT body suits me better. Coffee / Atacama will probably feel very...

    Delivery! Cross Turismo 4S in Crayon/Crayon with CT design wheels - Just collected

    Hi there - I’ve placed an order for a crayon CT4S, currently with crayon/black leather too (and 21” CT design wheels - all of this must be very familiar to you!). I’m about to change for Bordeaux/red interior instead (to compliment red brakes / contrast with the paint), but have always loved...

    Collected my third new Taycan today

    Very interesting to go from Turbo S to M3P to RWD! How do you find the power delivery on RWD? Several reviewers say that because you can use pretty much all of it most of the time on the open road, it feels quick and enjoyable despite the figures looking a bit down vs M3P etc

    Dates Confirmed (ish) for Turbo S Cross Turismo

    At least we’re getting consistent messaging! But I’m a bit staggered by the fact that it results in some customers getting the service while others don’t. All cars are manufactured using the same production management system, so surely once it’s connected to TYD it should be covering 100%...

    Dates Confirmed (ish) for Turbo S Cross Turismo

    Just spoke to my SA - he confirmed that TYD was working for current orders at their dealership and that it had just been rolled out UK-wide… Nothing is managed locally, it’s all coming from Porsche GB/GmbH So just waiting on that (order went in the system on Monday so hopefully will get the...

    Got a Build slot

    Re charging, my 2cts would be to get a public AC cable in the froot and keep it there forever. Yes, with a bit of planning, you’ll get tethered DC all over England. But in places further up North or in France for instance, it’s mostly 22kW untethered AC. For the sake of £150 (Amzn/Screwfix...

    GTS Build Feedback

    I’ve seen Palado wood in a 992 and it made it look super plush - open pore was yacht style and yes it’s much darker than the rendering. It was painted navy with cream interior and it was awesome. I almost went for it but it wouldn’t suit my build which is geared towards a rugged sporty feel...

    Dates Confirmed (ish) for Turbo S Cross Turismo

    That’s UK and has a tracker! I hope my new dealer has it too (had to change to get an allocation quicker…) https://www.taycanforum.com/forum/threads/my-gts-is-being-built.8852/#post-126400

    Sport Turismos for all - which one would you pick (4S, GTS or Turbo)?

    Maybe worth asking your dealer what he thinks about the Macan GTS and Cayenne GTS ride height 😅 Since they used the GTS badge on SUVs, no reason not to extend to CT… I’m not asking for a CT GT3!

    Dates Confirmed (ish) for Turbo S Cross Turismo

    That’s interesting as I’m sure I’ve seen people here in the UK uploading screenshots of their trackers including Stage 2 being Silverstone experience… or is it just a basic MyPorsche tracker? When I asked my dealer he said some of them had the system, some didn’t, which sounded weird to me as...

    Dates Confirmed (ish) for Turbo S Cross Turismo

    Thanks appreciate you checked it - 3 weeks from order to install is super quick, I hope they’re being overly conservative with their current 7 weeks estimate. My install is dead easy as well and the whole electrical installation was overhauled just 8 years ago. Can’t see any issue to sort it all...

    Sport Turismos for all - which one would you pick (4S, GTS or Turbo)?

    I would have LOVED a CT GTS! No reason why there isn’t one and I would have switched to that in a heartbeat from 4S. To me ST GTS is best, because - Already all blacked out as standard - Sportdesign as standard - RS wheels are cool for not too much £ but I would have gone Mission E which are...
