    Taycan Sport Turismo GTS 24 hour test drive, some thoughts...

    agree, but I think it's just this particular colour. It looks like something an ill dog has squeezed out.

    Taycan Sport Turismo GTS 24 hour test drive, some thoughts...

    great write up, and lovely looking car but that colour just doesn't do it for me. Out of curiosity, have you spec'd the bike carrier pre-install kit on your ST? I haven't but seriously reconsidering but only concern is impact on my (already closed) freeze date. Spec envy is a dangerous thing 😉

    Taycan colour -- metallic black or Mamba Green

    I’ve always had black cars, love them; my current 911 is black. SWMBO fancied something different so we settled on Volcano Grey. I thought it looked great. Saw a Mamba Green on the road, was intrigued. Drove to see one up close, loved it. Changed my order to mamba green and can’t wait.

    Nuts delivery estimate

    Which colour did you go with? I changed to Mamba Green from Volcano Grey after a lot of deliberation

    Taycan to the Alps road-trip 2022

    Worth the trip just to stay in the James Bond-style hotel where you park the car on the balcony. “Real sick”, as my kids would say 😆

    Noise insulating glass and mobile reception

    I use my mob phone in industrial settings in control rooms fitted with windows that have technical resistance to blast and thermal shock. Even in build-mode (no comms / antenna systems functioning) I get signal so I don’t buy the Porsche glass is affecting the signal.

    steering wheel lock recommendation please

    I hadn't seen a car with a through-wheel steering lock for ages then I saw one the other day on an Aston. It looked ugly as sin to be honest but it really stood out so would definitely make a thief think twice.

    Well that was crap!

    Did it contain any non-swear words?

    Como to Galtur via the Stelvio Pass in a Taycan Cross Turismo 4

    Understood. I think the only solution is to try a car with rws but I really think I am going to time out. But for the next one, it’ll be on the checklist 👍

    Como to Galtur via the Stelvio Pass in a Taycan Cross Turismo 4

    Thanks for the link, which I’ve looked at. Perhaps I am missing something on it however as it just looks like a Taycan coupe reverse parallel parked, or is there more to it that I am missing?

    Como to Galtur via the Stelvio Pass in a Taycan Cross Turismo 4

    Great write up; road looks amazing. just out of curiosity, does your Taycan have rws, and if so did you notice a benefit from it over any previoustrips you’ve done along the same route on non-rws cars? reason I ask is I am struggling to make my mind up whether to add it before my freeze date

    My first post (and Porsche!)

    I think I am going to time out on trying the rws. I do like the sound of it but I can’t help feeling it’s answering a need I just don’t have. Maybe on the next one.

    My first post (and Porsche!)

    saw the car, loved the colour, order duly changed to Mamba Green :rock: http://www.porsche-code.com/PPGG8UU9 Remaining choices are: - do I really need the performance battery (UK driving, max in one hit on any journey for me would be c. 3hrs/200mls) > perhaps use saving to fund different...

    My first post (and Porsche!)

    not overly sure about the first bold point (if my kids keeping going at the rate they are) but the second bold point definitely. Senior Domestic Management influenced (aka chose) the Volcano Grey but on reflection I want something very different to my black 911 so I am very taken with the Mamba...

    My first post (and Porsche!)

    Fully onboard with this warning. With my freeze date only a few days away I am going to look at a mamba green car in the flesh tomorrow to firm up on change to that from the current Volcano Grey - but that’ll be the thin end of the wedge I suspect 💷💷😩

    New car days are the best days.

    Got a few mates not too far from you so an easy spot. Tend to gather in the Rosedene before trudging the short(ish) distance to the hallowed turf.

    New car days are the best days.

    From a Sand Dancer to a Mackem got to say you've two great looking cars. I am picking up my RWD ST in Dec (if Porsche Cambridge play nicely :) ) then I'll be taking it up to sunny Shields for a while before leathering it back down South. If you fancy a run out over the festive period keep me...
