  1. Where is the spare tire in the taycan? Is it a full size tire?

    Not that you'd want to die on the roadside changing a tire anyway...
  2. Taycan / Porsche must have accessories?

    Around here, I'd much rather use Waze than a radar detector. :D
  3. What changes are expected from June 2020 onwards

    Order sheets for a new model year usually show up sometime in April. But who knows how things will work with the Taycan, given it's kinda its own thing.
  4. Taycan information direct from Zuffenhausen plant tour

    Which is a third of a full Taycan charge. :p But, I'm not on the BEV kick for any sort of 'greed cred'. I want the Taycan for performance, convenience, and the carpool sticker.
  5. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    Do people really use a lot of L2 charging away from home or work? None of my neighbors with Teslas even have a EVSE at home, as they all charge for free at work. One neighbor even has 2 Teslas and no charger. We have a bazillion Teslas here, and I don't see much in the way of Tesla-only L2...
  6. Taycan information direct from Zuffenhausen plant tour

    Because the amount of power generated by that quantity of panels makes no difference for the car charging bits. It will keep the lights on, and power lots of other things, but car charging takes a LOT more power than those panels deliver. A square meter of panel will likely generate less than...
  7. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    Looks like I should've went, to have at least one Porsche owner there. :P
  8. High Gloss Sport Design Pack or Matte?

    Plus car show lighting is extremely bright, and will show things on horizontal surfaces more than you'll probably see in ambient light.
  9. Where is the spare tire in the taycan? Is it a full size tire?

    Spare tire = call roadside assistance and have it flat bedded to dealer.
  10. Chris Harris’ Full Taycan Review From Top Gear: I LOVE IT!

    Summer tires are probably good for 12k miles. Probably less for your first set if you have extra fun with your new toy. :D
  11. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    Good time to get to the Bay Area, it's like 70 degrees out today!
  12. Any feedback on massage seats?

    You could just ask your dealer if they have them in any of the other cars they have on the lot and go sit in 'em.
  13. [Car and Driver Review] Porsche Taycan Turbo S vs. Tesla Model S Performance: Electric Flattery

    While I like the convenience, I don't think entire articles should be duplicated here without permission. Press releases, sure, but I keep seeing this here, and I'd hate to see something happen to the site because of the continued content rips...
  14. Tire Selection Tips

    The stickier and wider the tires are, the worse mileage you're going to get. It's rolling resistance and aerodynamics, as the wider tire will have contact with more air.
  15. Greetings Bay Area ppl!

    Someone had to post here to start things. :p
  16. VOLCANO GREY Taycan Club

    I love the color, I don't love the extra $4k. :CWL:
  17. MSRP Dealers (selling Taycan with no price mark-up)

    A reservation is nothing more than you declaring interest. The dealer will still be deciding who gets what allocation when. I expect the short allocation cars to see some market adjustment for people that want to jump the queue. Dealers are there to make money. The first batch of...
  18. Tire Selection Tips

    Performance car = performance tires. The tires are the only thing that touches the road. I rent something from Silvercar if I'm going to drive anywhere cold (like Tahoe) anyway. So I just run PS4's all the time on the Macan. Summer tires usually are great in the rain, they just suck in the...
  19. Mobile Charger Connect requirements

    When I had my NEMA 14-50 outlet installed, the electrician put in a 40A breaker, because the Bolt is only a 32A car. When I get the Taycan, I'll just swap the breaker to a 50A and swap out the EVSE. The wiring had to be 50A capable anyway, just it was safer to put in the 40A breaker since it...
  20. VOLCANO GREY Taycan Club

    I'm super torn between upgrading to those wheels (in that color scheme) or sticking with just the Sport Aero wheels...
