    Dealer is ready to submit my build, if you've received your Taycan, what do you think?

    I can explain to what a “sure thing” is, meet me at the horse track, bring the rent money and I’ll demonstrate the concept of sure thing.

    Taycan fire in Florida garage

    I’m wondering if the cause is found to be a fault in the cars systems or battery, wouldn’t the owner be entitled to have the whole car replaced under the new car warranty? it makes sense to me that the car is now broken, and the warranty or to fix it.

    Jay Leno's Garage features the Taycan Turbo S

    I don’t think anyone on this forum is a high paid professional entertainer who’s job is to be enthusiastic, and entertaining either.

    Jay Leno's Garage features the Taycan Turbo S

    Wow, I didn’t think it was possible to take such an incredible exciting car and make it seem so dull, listening to that interview felt like attending a mandatory seventh grade science lecture by a teacher who is clearly tired of his job.

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

    The summers of 1967 and 1968 my girl friend and I lived on the beach on the west side of Vancouver island, near Tufino in huts built out of driftwood. This was my car then. I just hope my Taycan Turbo will be nearly as much fun

    Impact of Taycan on equilibrium-is it just us?

    My wife and I test drove the turbo s and mostly drove with “typical sports car style” but of course tried two or three hard accelerations. I experienced noticeable equilibrium discomfort for a couple of hours, but my wife felt unpleasant effects (she was in the back seat) for almost 24 hours...

    Looks like a fun test ride

    I just got back from my turbo s test drive ( Denver) and I’m still a little sick feeling. It’s no joke, full acceleration is a bit too much for me if done more than a couple of times. I’m glad I’m getting the turbo. The S is too much for my delicate head.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but here is what it said ( note the red area is the 235 mile stretch that the Taycan won’t do and there are no alternative suggestions. Guess for now I’m stuck at the western edge of Colorado.

    Taycan residuals and MF

    Those percentages are slightly better than my Porsche dealer quoted me, and please don’t forget the money value number, which translate to interest, was also very very high translating to an interest rate of over 8%. If you put that interest rate down to the three or 4% where it should be the...

    EPA Taycan Turbo

    On the bright side, you did get the unadvertised innovation of “foot garages”. You know, those two large holes in the battery where 50 miles of range could have gone.
