    Miss having indicator in side mirrors

    Most of my previous cars had a small indicator incorporated in the side mirrors. So you could make sure you were indicating at a glance when making a manoeuvre without having to check the dash. I really miss it in this car. Was it an option at all, or just not something Porsche do?

    Q. Taycan model and battery degredation?

    I read on here recently about things that 'age' the battery. One of them was constant fast discharges (acceleration) iirc. So it got me thinking, if different models used the same battery and are driven typical to their potential (TS>T>4S>RWD) will this have an impact on battery degredation...

    EVs v ICE long term durability

    The Taycan is my first EV and I know very little about them from a long term durability perspective. Especially compared to ICE cars that I have been used to. I am guessing that enough people have now had EVs (Teslas?) longer term and may have some input on this. I appreciate the batteries...

    I have got the RWD without Sport Chrono so my options are Range, Normal and Sport. I never use Range unless the car defaults to it. But I was just wondering what exactly the differences are between Normal and Sport? And do you get an actual performance improvement in sport, in that if you...
