  1. Porsche Taycan 4S – My Experience At A Charging Station - SuperCars.net

    Keep it simple and strip down the payment process; no need for grace periods and priming the flow of electrons with even more complex processes. I can go to the gas pump, tap my credit card, discount/loyalty card, and be pumping gas in 10 seconds with physical cards or electronic cards on my...
  2. Porsche Taycan 4S – My Experience At A Charging Station - SuperCars.net

    The experience from Rich (Rich Rebuilds fame) getting supercharging turned off doesn't line up with a "cloud control" model; the cars didn't lose the ability to supercharge until an OTA car update. So to me that indicates that there is no "cloud" verification on charge connection. This isn't a...
  3. Porsche Taycan 4S – My Experience At A Charging Station - SuperCars.net

    From my understanding of Tesla's SuperCharger architecture all of the "smarts" are in the car (i.e. allowed to supercharge, reporting time/duration for billing, etc.) so problem #1, its not a simple "change the plug" kind of operation. So either Tesla has to document the "in car" spec and a...
  4. I Cancelled My Order !

    Congrats Jay! Best possible outcome, glad to hear you found exactly what you wanted and the "happy" is back :clap:
  5. Porsche Connect Update!

    I did not, no Porsche models were on the Apple list of cars that support CarPlay wireless.
  6. Porsche Connect Update!

    On wireless CarPlay its interesting how many cars support it. Its a short list: 2019 Audi >=A6, 2019 BMW, Lambo Urus, Merc A and GLE, Mini, Supra (a.k.a. BMW). Wash out the BMW line and its a few Audis, one Lambo and 2 Benz. BMW is married to Apple and have been talking about turning phone...
  7. Porsche Connect Update!

    Posting here won't do jack to get Porsche's attention as this forum is too small and inactive. Three pressure points potentially: Dealer complaints and poor CSAT (customer satisfaction) scores. Basically fill in every survey you can get your hands on and complain, take the car back to the...
  8. Buyer"s Remorse?

    Cadillac (Super cruise, available now) and Ford (with the upcoming MachE) use facial/eye tracking which is far more indicative of attention. Merc, VW and Volvo either had or were working on this technology for their "safety" systems on their top end models, too bad it didn't make it in the Taycan...
  9. Buyer"s Remorse?

    If I were in your position I'd cancel the order. You need to be excited about the car, otherwise as you say its a lot of money to have regrets about. You could rent a Taycan for a bit and see if you love it, then decide to purchase or move on to something else. Spending $10K on a rental beats...
  10. Taycan Turbo S vs 911 GT3, AMG GT R, M2 at the Nürburgring nordschleife - L'argus

    That's def disappointing, reminiscent of the Tesla's Model S endurance issues at the 'Ring which were addressed in the Model 3. Just from the rough math it sounds like 12ish minutes on full boil before you'd need to back off. Be interesting to see how the lapping crowd fares when some folks...
  11. 220v charging plug at home

    Yes the outlet shape is unique, NEMA is a standard so just tell your electrician that you need a NEMA 6-30 outlet. You can Google "NEMA 6-30" and it will bring you to a bunch of charts showing the plug and receptacle layouts. You'll also need to tell your electrician the continuous amperage you...
  12. Rich Rebuilds examines the wrecked Taycan Turbo

    Rich from Rich Rebuilds has a thorough go through of the wrecked Taycan that was posted here a while back. That thing went for some kind of an off road trip, basically busted the suspension off all 4 corners. And no "C5" to "blow the suspension", just good old fashioned hit something harder than...
  13. Customer support communication

    The problem is the lower end dealerships figure there are lots of buyers, so the "needy/loud" ones can be ignored. The upper end they know there are limited options (fewer dealerships, less allocation available) so again why bother with a squawker. Throw in "auto groups" that own a bunch of...
  14. Customer support communication

    In my experience the GM is of limited use getting things resolved directly. A customer going to the GM disrupts the dealership hierarchy and causes internal noise (and lots of it) because of the comp structure. The GM's only direct job with the customer is strictly PR, to make you feel...
  15. Sun Visor Safety Airbag Decal Removal

    Unfortunately we've got them, in two languages no less :)
  16. How can we help Porsche to improve?

    Great stuff, I appreciate you having a go through. I understand where you're heading now with getting an enhanced digital experience rather than just a "car order tracker" I keep asking myself if the dealer sees these queries as a waste of time, or part of the relationship building experience...
  17. How can we help Porsche to improve?

    Very nice, some serious thought put in to this! At the end of the day this boils down to design, build/coding, implementation and support time. In a world of unlimited resources I'd say go for it. The only thing that gives me pause is, as an owner, it's something I'm going to use for a short...
