    Model year cut-off date?

    My freeze date is just next to yours at 10/14. I agree it would have been nice to do it all myself on the configurator, but I've made do by just touching base with my sales guy every week or two by adding or taking off (it's been mostly adding) things based on the MY21 options that either people...

    First official look: 7 new colors for 2021 Taycan: Neptune Blue, Cherry, Frozenberry, Coffee Beige, Mohagony, Ice Grey, Crayon

    lol @DavidInEngland, "I ended up choosing Mamba Green." I can already imagine your thought process. "White? A little.. pearly white? Maybe a darker greyish white.. whitish silvery silver dark white.. oh f*ck it bring out the Mamba."

    First official look: 7 new colors for 2021 Taycan: Neptune Blue, Cherry, Frozenberry, Coffee Beige, Mohagony, Ice Grey, Crayon

    Much appreciated, how Ice Grey Metallic looks both in real life and in actual photos has been a running question for many weeks. Again it looks to be a grey metallic paint (and not a "silver" type paint like dolomite or GT). Thanks for sharing these!

    2021 Taycan New Colors Samples / Swatches

    I agree, it's great marketing and images but doesn't seem that accurate. The Chalk picture makes you think that it's a metallic color when in reality it's a pretty flat paint. Looking forward to your posts on Ice Grey Metallic! I chose that as well, but won't know until late Jan 2021.

    Pricing vs MSRP in US

    That sounds like a fantastic deal. Had it been on the lot for awhile or was it a demo, or did they just really want to move inventory?

    Storage space under centre console

    My jaw dropped reading this :eek:. Thanks for the FYI, I love netting in the back and taking delivery without that net would have been a shocker. At least now I have a few months to prepare myself! :rolleyes:

    2021 Taycan New Colors Samples / Swatches

    I got a chance to see this in person as well. It looks like a true grey paint (with metallic pearl) instead of a reflective silver. I think imagine Carrara White Metallic which is white paint with pearly bits, except this is grey with pearly bits. It's definitely not a reflective type of...

    NEMA 14-50 position in garage for PMCC

    Agree, mine will be to the right and below the plug level :D . But all the included pictures are helpful for confirming that and for anyone else who wants to mount it more evenly side-by-side, or even above, in which case they may want the ground plug down at 6 o’clock.

    NEMA 14-50 position in garage for PMCC

    Just had mine installed today so here are pictures of the actual plug if helpful. Will be planning on putting the PMCC to the right of that which is why I had them install it slightly off center.

    2021 Taycan New Colors Samples / Swatches

    This is awesome, thanks for taking the time to take a picture of this! And for sharing the pictures over GDrive. I think it really cements my decision to move forward with Ice Grey.

    What did you negotiate on your Taycan lease agreements?

    That’s not bad, but remember unless financing, you shouldn’t ever put any money down on a lease (or as little as possible) since there is no interest benefit and you are simply paying what you owe up front. This means that if you put nothing down, your actual comparable lease is $416 more per...

    What did you negotiate on your Taycan lease agreements?

    The wiggle room for Porsche leases can be pretty poor. As with most things when negotiating, don't negotiate the "monthly payment" but rather ask for the lease factors themselves to make sure they are giving you the best deal. This is what I was offered locally (SoCal) for a Turbo 36mo/15k...

    White Colour Range Comparison

    This is a great comparison and thread. I currently have a base white car and have been mulling about going over into the metallics for some time too, and then Ice Grey Metallic also caught my eye. Would be interesting if one day we could see a swatch of all the neutral colors from light to dark...

    Ask a Porsche Dealer Anything

    This is pretty helpful, that means that the option of getting the PSCB in high gloss black (if that’s a color scheme you want) for MSRP $900 from the factory isn’t too bad of a premium then. I keep going back to the Porsche promo photo in the Carmine Red thread of that Turbo with the black...

    Ask a Porsche Dealer Anything

    To both Gogs and ron, this was really helpful to know and read so thanks to you both. This was originally spec’d on my order thinking that “more higher is lots better” but knowing that there are so few stations in the US that would utilize it makes a big difference and helps save that money for...

    2021 Taycan allocations now available in the US

    I began looking about 2 weeks ago so pretty recently. I’m in the SoCal Area and emailed Porsche San Diego, Carlsbad, and Riverside and all three stated they had allocation slots for a Turbo (late Jan vs late Feb delivery). The dealer I ended up going with has the 2021 configurator too and so I’m...

    I have a 2021 Turbo allocation (Jan vs Feb delivery with an Oct vs Nov lock date). Have you tried other nearby dealerships around you?
