  1. Like or dislike the Taycan sound?

    I ordered it before I had a chance to test drive the car... When I finally got to test drive it (after my freeze date), I found it to be super annoying and turned it off after 30 seconds... But since I paid for it, I always turn it on now when I am driving. Now that I am used to it, it feels...
  2. Latest stop sale due to Burmester part shortage

    I am surprised it took so long to hit Porsche. Mercedes here has stopped letting people order Burmester on non S-Class for almost a year now....
  3. Range Mode

    Since we are talking about range mode, why does the retractable spoiler get deployed in range mode? Doesn't a spoiler create drag thus decreasing the range? Always puzzle me.
  4. Equivalent of Suncoast in the UK

    I am going to order a set of OEM 21 wheels, and want to take advantage of the weak Pound. Anyone here knows if there are any Porsche Dealers in the UK that are willing to ship internationally? Thanks!
  5. Taycan Exclusive Design Black vs. RS Spyder Design and effect on range

    Did you end up getting the black one or the carbon ones? It seems the carbon is not very noticeable from a short distance...and the black gives a bit more contrast to my volcano grey.... The carbon is also a pain to repair...since I don't think the carbon blades can be bought as parts seperately?
  6. Taycan Exclusive Design Black vs. RS Spyder Design and effect on range

    It's about time to replace the tires on my original 20"s, and I am considering upgrading my rims too. The dealer here is extremely anal about customers using non-standard equipment and loves to void warranty...so I only have two choices: Taycan Exclusive Design Black vs. RS Spyder Design...
  7. Leather or better wheels?

    Only the seat center is real leather, the bolsters, headrests, and the middle rear seat(if you ordered 4+1) are all leatherette.
  8. Leather or better wheels?

    I think ultimately it is your own personal preference, but here are a few things you should consider: -I personally think leather is a must for a car at this price point, however: The fake leather is actually not too bad. I ordered leather because there was not too much pictures of the...
  9. Speedometer: Swapping between 20" & 21"

    I notice that the overall diameter (rim and tire) of the OEM 20" and 21"are different. I also see that you can select different wheel size in the TPMS menu... Does the Taycan automatically adjust the speedometer based on the TPMS settings? Thanks!
  10. Rear Axle Steering - how to confirm it's installed / working?

    I am surprised you need to go through all these tests to confirm it. I could feel it the day I picked up my car, and it put a smile on my face every time I successfully make a tight turn in one go..... On the other hand, I don't feel the difference at all when driving at high speed. I...
  11. Charging Best Practices

    Actually I do most of my charging at a 24kw DC charger...I wonder if the degradation will be similar to a 22Kw AC charger. The thing I don't understand is why the Taycan can only set a limit to AC charging and not to DC charging...
  12. Mission E Wheel Colors

    I am looking to get a set of Mission E for my 4S. However, it seems that you can only buy the standard color (silver and black) as parts. I am wondering if Porsche actually repaints these standard color rims on the side when you choose one of the Satin or body color options....
  13. Taycan 4S Spoiler Deployed Speed

    I have seen this before but it's not consistent with my observations of the indicator on the instrument panel: 1. I have never driven past 180km/h 2. I have only seen the indicator light up in cleaning mode / range mode and sport plus mode. 3. The indicator lights up whenever I reach 90km/h...
  14. Powered Charge Port Cover - YES or No?

    My $0.02: On forgetting to close the door: 1. I live in a place that does not have self service gas station, but I have not once forget to close the gas tank cover when driving in a foreign country. However, I do forget to close the charge port cover on my model S 50% of the time (which...
  15. Center Cap removal

    I didn't order the caps because everything here was tax 115%( now 132%:no:)... I am just wondering for those that have seen it in person, does it make the car look much better? I have the turbo aero wheels on a Volcano Grey. I thought the mono ones are not as bad as I originally...
  16. J1 vs. PPE platform

    This makes more sense now...so basically J1 is a niche to compete against the Model S...but then diesel gate happens, VW goes all in on EV, and then MEB and PPE was born?
  17. J1 vs. PPE platform

    Maybe Porsche did not compromise on the driving dynamics on the car, but there are so much cost cutting inside the car....The interior simply does not feel like a car at this price range (please do not compare it to a Tesla). Obviously, the accountant has as much say as the engineer in this...
  18. J1 vs. PPE platform

    Thanks for the info, but it seems like the PPE can be scaled to the size of a Taycan... obviously,there will be some compromises, but it doesn't make much sense to have a separate platform for such a low volume car...
  19. J1 vs. PPE platform

    Does anyone here know why VW let Porsche to develop the J1 platform? Are there any other cars that will be utilizing the J1 platform in the pipeline for the group? It seems like all the upcoming premium cars are going to be built on the PPE...What's the difference between the 2 platforms as...
