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 😉
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.
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.
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.
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
saw the car, loved the colour, order duly changed to Mamba Green :rock:
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...
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...
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 💷💷😩
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...
