    Unknown Concerning Sound

    I have an early MY20 Taycan Turbo - on Wednesday I got one of our beloved Electrical System Fault messages and couldn't move car. Locked it, moved away and let it sit for 10-15 min. When I restarted it, it was fine. Then Thursday evening when I got home from work I heard a crazy whirring sound...

    Just curious, when did you give your dealer any kind of deposit to express your interest and try to reserve an allocation spot. Mine was made on February 8, 2018 and I took delivery May 30, 2020.

    NAV Voice Commands - Metric vs Imperial

    My NAV and other settings are for miles and that's what's displayed on my NAV screen, but the voice commands still announce in kilometers. Anyone experience this and know where to change it? Or is this just one of those software inconsistencies that I'll have to live with for a while? At least...

    Ditch the PMCC (for now)?

    As a result of the concerns regarding the Porsche Mobile Charger Connect supply cable heat, is anyone thinking about purchasing a third-party mobile charger to use until Porsche either sorts it out or convinces us that it is safe and within specs? If you are thinking about it, what brand/model...

    Storage Compartment - 12-Volt Socket Power Off

    My 12-volt socket in the interior storage compartment doesn't seem to power off after locking the car.

    Comfort Access - Very Short Range

    I'm finding that the Comfort Access (i.e., keyless entry) has a very short range. I really have to be close to the door to unlock and lock it. If I initially go to the car and pass the front rather than coming from the side, it seems to read the key in my pocket a little farther away. Anyone...

    Taycan Wheel Spacers - 15mm front / 10mm rear

    My car is at the custom shop getting windows tinted and clear bra installed. He wants to add wheel spacers - 15mm for front and 10mm in rear. Any reason NOT to do it on the Taycan (depending on how much he'll charge). They do add a little aggressiveness to the look of the car but want to make...
