    Taycan parked in below freezing conditions; any advice?

    Thanks for the quick reply. sounds like there's nothing to worry about. As for the warranty point: I had a quick look and found this thread from 8 years ago, things may have changed since, and it referred to -30c so quite a bit colder. Any way see there what supposedly Tesla had replied to...

    Taycan parked in below freezing conditions; any advice?

    Hi, I'll be going with some friends to a ski trip in the Swiss alps for a few days. However, our lodging will only have outdoor parking with as far as I can tell no charging socket for the Taycan. Temperatures are expected to be between -10 and 0 celsius. I've read before about Tesla cancelling...

    Swapped my 21” Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres for 20” P Zero winters today - impressions

    I also have 20" summer and winter (same rim). Summer rides on P7 Cinturato, and winter are Pzero winter. I put on the winter tyre in October, well before the cold kicked in. My range took an immediate 10-15% hit with winter versus Summer tyres. Now that temperatures are around freezing, the car...

    First impressions of standard audio system (compared to Bose system)

    FWIW, I have the Bose system in my CT4 and I would rate it a solid "meh". My wife's Mini costs nearly 70% less than the CT4 and its optional Harman Kardon is in a different league altogether. So I fully follow your choice of getting your Taycan sooner and cheaper with the standard audio...

    Dumb question; why don't you keep your existing car?

    911 Dakar a.k.a. Taycan CT tribute edition😁

    I'm sure the race-driven and well-worn 959 Dakar cars have at least as much value as the potential garage queens 959 Dakar. I loathe the garage queen cars; Ferrari owners keeping their cars in a garage and whose pleasure is to rub their cars on Sunday with a diaper, and maybe take it out 6...

    911 Dakar a.k.a. Taycan CT tribute edition😁

    Id' love a Rothmans-like wrap for the taycan, looks amazing. On a broader note, public roads are becoming increasingly frustrating to use cars on. Track days are fun but IMHO a little repetitive. The real fun is to be had off-road weather in the desert (as her in Morocco) or on frozen lakes in...

    A word of caution about speed...

    In Switzerland the mentality is that the rules are the rules and they are enforced. If one doesn’t like the rules (whether for taxes, immigration, traffic regulations, etc.) then one votes to change the rules. There’s a very notorious direct democracy principle here where referendums are...

    Charging query

    Was it a DC charger (with CCS plugs) or a AC? I have never heard of 32kw AC chargers, there are 22 and 43kw AC but not any 32kw that I know of. Regardless, your car would only charge at its maximum AC rate, which is 11kw unless you paid for the 22kw option. And as mentioned by @Windpower your...

    Disable key tones?

    I have the updated PCM 6 software with the colour icons. Is there any way to disable the maddening click tone when clicking things on the screen? It's a small thing but it feels like a thousand paper cuts when using the PCM. I have searched through what seems like all the menus and cannot find...

    Tesla opens up their EV connector design to the world (North American Standard)

    Hasn't Tesla previously offered their patents to anyone who asked for them, for free? The small print however said that those taking advantage of Tesla's patents would also wave any right to sue Tesla if Tesla used their patents... meaning Tesla had a Troyan horse (some would say a poison...

    A word of caution about speed...

    This conservativeness on speedo reading is required by law in Europe. The basic idea is that a driver should never be able to successfully argue that he thought he was driving at speed limit but was in reality driving above. This is a liability CYA for manufacturers and a security bias for road...

    A word of caution about speed...

    Nope, cannot set an offset. At first, I was constantly manually adjusting Innodrive for 3-6 kmh on top, but eventually gave up and just let it adjust to the speed limit. It would seem that with the latest summer update it is much better at reading road signs/speed limits and is smoother in...

    A word of caution about speed...

    Ouch. As I mentioned in my earlier post in this thread I was very close from stepping into the working day fines. Sounds like that’s where you landed. this whole episode has me reconsidering ICE cars again; our Taycan are just so fast and deprived of sensation of speed. I had a 911 before and I...

    A word of caution about speed...

    I have Porsche Innodrive on my car for almost all my driving. It automatically steps up and down according to speed limit. But it doesn’t help when overtaking which is when I got caught. Still not received the court decision. The apprehension and wait for the letter is part of the punishment...

    A word of caution about speed...

    nearly every weekend there are supercar clubs going out in the mountains and having a blast. Some resort to having an absolute max speed of 100kmh so as to only have a fine if they get caught, while others have a scout in regular car go ahead check for speed trap and police, send a message to...

    Traded Taycan 4 CT for EQS 450 4Matic SUV

    I agree that Mercedes has come a long way in a short period of time with their electric cars. I’ve never really liked the modern design of their ICE cars which I jokingly refer to “sagging bananas” (look at the bottom of the window line ) but their EQ line has a distinctive look which has grown...
