    Official: 2024 Macan EV Electric Prototype Specs & First Look (on new PPE EV platform)

    As a workaround, I'm considering charging my Taycan to 100% regularly. When I first got my car, my dealer told me the 85% SoC recommendation is overly conservative, and that charging to 100% does not affect the longevity of the battery because of the ~10kw unusable buffer. I didn't believe it at...

    A Blissful First 10 Days Living With My GTS - Photos, Thoughts, and More

    I saved it under my Individual drive mode settings. So I still have to flip the sport chrono dial to Individual each time I start the car, but I set it to automatically enable sport sound regen coasting.

    Not really. I've gotten used to it to the point where I have to listen hard for it, otherwise it's not noticeable anymore. Perhaps it's louder on the CT/ST than the sedan?

    Pay cash or finance ??

    OP, I went through the EXACT same internal debate when I took delivery of my GTS in July with basically the exact same price and rate as you. I had the option to pay cash and was planning to do so up until the very last minute when I realized that the unfavorable market conditions at the time...

    I collected my chalk GTS 2 weeks ago and it’s been a blast. We just got back from Big Sur and did some epic coastal driving. Enjoy the pics!

    Congrats! You’re in for a real treat :) The only thing I wish I’d gotten was the power charge port cover. Wouldn’t change anything else.

    Midway through driving a couple days ago, my regenerative braking suddenly kicked in! I had just under 600 miles on it at the time.

    Bordeaux Red is a fine choice too! That would’ve been my other choice. Re: Regen. I get how it works with the modes but I noticed regen only kicks in when I lift my foot off the accelerator. When I brake, the green meter does not increase, which probably means that the algo is trying to bed in...

    Thanks for sharing. Interesting that others are having account issues…My account shows up as “activated” on Porsche’s end and the PCM accepts my login credentials, but it doesn’t actually let me access the account. I also did activate Porsche Connect services already. So I called PCNA and have...

    Hmm no there was never a stop sale put on the car. It was built in May after the cutoff for the recall. It’s updated to the latest software during PDI afaik. Hopefully this is an easy fix. I suspect Porsche’s servers didn’t properly update and it might not even be the car’s problem. Will find...

    Yep. I have the steering wheel’s diamond button set to the next music track and the instrument cluster shortcut set to Homelink. I set the sport sound with my individual mode so I just turn the dial to enable it. But I just found it a bit odd that when you do turn it on in normal mode for...

    I have the standard roof. It blocks out sun just fine. I also did not want to risk a delayed delivery date by opting for VLC in case there was a missing part or something. And it wasn’t worth the extra few grand for me personally but definitely a cool feature! Did you spec it on your GTS ST?

    Thanks! Yeah, I have it scheduled for service in a couple of weeks. Fortunately I don’t have to reprogram all my settings every time I start the car, so it’s just a matter of two extra screen taps. It’s the lack of remote app access that bugs me most, though.

    Overview After 8 long months of anticipation, I finally took delivery of my Taycan GTS last week. Despite a supply chain crisis, a war, and a shipwreck, I was lucky enough to receive the car just 1 week later than my original delivery estimate with no markup. Redwood City Porsche was incredibly...

    I have a very similar spec! My GTS just arrived a couple of days ago, too. Chalk with GTS interior / Carmine Red stitching. Absolutely love the color combo. Here are some untouched photos. Will post better ones after I take it home this week!

    Safe To Pop Off Mirror Housing Cover?

    Hey Wanted to revive this thread. OP, did you end up getting these carbon fiber mirror caps installed? Did the dealer do it? Also I am curious if the OEM part from Sun Coast also includes the lower housing cover. I the description says it can be painted gloss black but if you don’t paint it...

    Emden to Benicia Ship Schedule?

    My TYD just updated the dealer arrival date from July 15th to July 1st (tomorrow?!) - I reached out to my SA and will follow up on this thread tomorrow if this actually happens. I sure hope it does.
