    Should I trade in my Taycan 4S for an Aston Martin Vantage? (pics)

    You reminded me of the other reason - if I decide to come back to Taycan it will probably be the refreshed version which I'm guessing/hoping will have big battery improvements.

    Should I trade in my Taycan 4S for an Aston Martin Vantage? (pics)

    Yes, but it's a wash. Charging at home it more convenient. But not when you're ready to leave and the charger's red and you realize it overheated and stopped charging. Being more energy efficient is good for the Earth. But I barely put any mileage on so I won't make up the initial impact from...

    Thanks for this. I guess I won't know unless I try. So I pulled the trigger. It was nice knowing you all. Even the guy that dressed up as a horse.

    If someone would either give me a Vantage or a Taycan, my initial reaction would be of course I would choose the Vantage. But if I start thinking about it more, the Taycan is so much more practical.

    It blows my mind how similar the performance numbers are:

    I always do this. I have a dream and even though the dream is within my grasp I end up going with something else. Why did you change your mind?

    No garage space. Used car prices are going to go down. Bad time to double down on cars.

    Should I trade in my Taycan 4S for an Aston Martin Vantage? (pics)

    I love my car but the AM will scratch my childhood itch to be James Bond (not a very good reason I know). On the street the Taycan feels faster. If it were one of the manual Vantages I would get it in a heartbeat, but I couldn't find one of those in a spec I liked. What do?

    Really, How long for service?

    Wow, you are me, except no one has even looked at my car yet. Does anyone think they would listen to me if I asked them to order the "High Voltage Converter for AC" ahead of time? There was a rumor that if your AC isn't working your battery might also not get cooled. Did you ask them about...

    Electric vehicle subsidies take cash from ordinary Americans to benefit the rich

    Did you read the article? Their stated premise is literally the opposite of what you think it is.... the IRA extends these subsidies indefinitely, though it places new limits on the price of the vehicles and income levels needed to qualify. But the focus on the direct EV subsidy misses far...

    It's same exact Taycan in both tables.

    Study says Taycan loses 20% of range in winter

    So now you admit that the first table is a "comparison of actual range"? Weren't you the one who said "the sensational percentage is based off a starting point that’s a best case number, not a typical real world range"? Then you said "it uses the worst figure in its data for the headline."...

    Study says Taycan loses 20% of range in winter

    No, it was based on their real-world test last summer. No, the worst result was 40%, not 20%. They literally listed five cars that didn't have a heat pump and five that did so that people could make an informed choice. This is funny given all the other people complaining that this is a "sky...
