  1. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    If you enjoy seafood and don't mind splurging for a really great meal, my favorite seafood restaurant on the planet is Mama's Fish House in Paia.
  2. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    Great write-up. The one thing that really struck me was the fact that you folks are all first-time Porsche owners! Not sure if you've all been to Germany, but I would HIGHLY recommend visiting Stuttgart (including of course the factory in Zuffenhausen) to get a feeling for not only the...
  3. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    In 1999 I went on a PCA Treffen to the factory in Zuffenhausen and the people at the factory actually seemed bothered by the concept of a Porsche "garage queen". "Our cars are meant to be driven!" You're making them proud Don!
  4. Chris Harris’ Full Taycan Review From Top Gear: I LOVE IT!

    Love his first reaction: "Oh my Lord!" :)
  5. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    Actually, quick question on your trip Don. I wonder why you decided to do the Canadian portion of your trek first? I would think the weather in Canada would be less of an issue if you had gone "clockwise" instead of "counter-clockwise" on your loop...

    Wow, I don't think you could make this stuff up Don! It seems awfully coincidental... I would be really curious whether the power problem was due to you using their charger. At least you're able to charge it using Level 2.

    What a beautiful place Don. And is that a selfie? :) I was going to suggest you do that since there a lot of us following your great adventure and this way we can put a face to the name...

    At the minimum Don, it sounds like you were well treated by Porsche of Calgary. My gut feel it probably was a car/charger incompatibility issue and not an issue specifically with your car, but that was just a guess. I think the fact that the car logs didn't show an issue with the car itself...
  9. Impact of Taycan on equilibrium-is it just us?

    I had a similar situation as a passenger in a Tesla Model 3 Performance. I normally love the sensation of speed, but I didn't enjoy that sudden acceleration. Am guessing at least part of the unpleasantness was due to being a passenger. I think the "launch mode" on any performance EV is a...

    Very happy to hear Porsche is on top of this. As you said, I'm sure they realize you are blazing new trails here Don and want to make sure you're a satisfied owner.
  11. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    Out of curiosity Lou, did the car give you any kind of indications there was a problem other than not charging at Level 3? Given the sophistication of the car (and the manufacturer :) ), I would have figured it would give you some kind of indication if the problem is with the car itself. Sorry...

    Great shots Lou. Really enjoy hearing about your trek!

    Best of luck on the trip! Great to see you're putting the Taycan through it's paces...

    Fantastic commercial!
  15. First Drive in Taycan Turbo. A Member’s Impressions, Photos and Videos

    Great review! Thanks for sharing it with us.
  16. New Retractable Glass Spoiler.

    With the BMW i3, in the winter most of us precondition the car. If the car is plugged in to a Level 2 charger, you tell the car when you are planning on leaving it and it will precondition the battery using the EVSE and precondition the cabin temperature (if you want it to) so the car is nice...
  17. New Retractable Glass Spoiler.

    Interesting. Thanks for the info. I'm guessing you can get in and out of the car without the window coming down to clear the door seal at the top, but think the seal might not last as long if this happened all the time.
