    Kind of feeling screwed over. Placed over in Dec 2021 and still no allocation

    EXACTLY!!!! I emailed 30 different Porsche dealers within 1,000 miles of Denver this past January. Found an allocation out of Porsche Kansas City for a CT4s for an April build date, and the car arrived the first week of June. Put 4,000 miles on it already this summer. I loved my previous...

    Turmoil at VW: Porsches Postponed by Buggy Software Cost VW’s CEO His Job

    “They should have head-hunted the best people from Silicon Valley,” Schmidt said. “You can’t lead on software with automotive people.” I think this sentence says it all. If you had or have an early VIN Taycan you acutely felt this with the numerous fixes, recalls, or updates. I do have to...

    Drove almost 750 miles today using Will's custom bike carrier on my CT4s

    I have the plug, but not using it right now. I had the bike centered on the rack, so it did not interfere with any of the driver assist functions I have on the car - lane change assist, lane keep assist, the driver assist. Rack is phenomenal and there is no movement on the bike if you have...

    Drove almost 750 miles today using Will's custom bike carrier on my CT4s

    Have to give a shout out to Will and his custom bike carriers he made for Cross Turismo owners. I took my first extended road trip today with my bike in the carrier and it out worked great. As expected, there was an efficiency hit, but I comfortably drove from Denver to Idaho Falls today...

    I was planning on a trip to Vegas on Sunday, so I will see what my range estimates looks like compared to what I had seen previously. Guess that is one way of finding out!

    Official Porsche Announcement: PCM Update Coming to All Model Years w/ Faster Charging, Infotainment Improvements and Range Bump

    I saw in another thread that it could be a 20 to 30 mile increase in range due to the thermal management update. There are a couple of different threads discussing the update, so sorry I can't remember which one it is.

    Official Porsche Announcement: PCM Update Coming to All Model Years w/ Faster Charging, Infotainment Improvements and Range Bump

    Hopefully, someone will be able to verify the additional 20 to 30 miles of range promised from this: Thermal management: better conditioning of the battery, especially at low outside temperatures, enables the Taycan to be rapidly charged more frequently overall and over a wider range of battery...

    244 Mile Round Trip Took 84% SoC

    Any elevation gain? What about wind? That will explain the slight variance.

    2021+ owners - how consistently has EA Plug & Charge been working for you?

    100% connection rate in my old '21 sedan, and 100% connection rate in my new CT4s. That includes driving the car home 600 miles the day after picking it up at the dealership. We are talking about Electrify America, so I feel pretty lucky about my success rate with both my Taycans. I am about...

    Park in the garage?

    Hate all you want. If you don't post stupid $hit, then you will not be called out on it. I am on my 3rd Taycan in three years and have only burned down 4 houses on my block while charging. I would have never known it was my car if it was not for your super insightful first post on this board.

    Park in the garage?

    With posts like this it seems like you have a bright future on this forum. Keep these insightful nuggets coming!! Your post is so ridiculous that it is hard to believe that you are not just an anti-EV troll. Seriously, you should probably take 30 seconds and do a basic web search on the...

    Any Ice Greys in the GTA

    Here are pictures of mine in the sun, and in cloudy rainy conditions. The color has different undertones depending on the light. There is even a hint of blue hue in certain light. I was debating between Chalk and Ice Grey, and glad I went with the Ice Grey since it is like having a...

    Heckled at the EA Charger in Amarillo TX

    You were in Amarillo, TX - that kind of ignorance is to be expected. I have experienced similar encounters in Grand Junction, CO and in Cedar City, UT. Unfortunately, it comes with the territory when the Electrify America charging locations in out of the way rural areas are located in a...
