    Android Auto - uses?

    I am just wondering how everyone is using Android Auto after the uPdate? I was mostly happy with the Porsche Nav and don't use my phone as a music source. I use Internet radio and USB. I also mostly wait till I'm not driving to respond to calls / messages etc. So I am just wondering what...

    Which options add the most weight?

    I love my Taycan, but (like all EV's) I wish it was lighter. Mines a RWD which is obviously the lightest, but it just got me thinking how much the various options weigh? PB+ is an obvious one, but then I got thinking about things like pano roof. And 22kw and 150kw on board charger options. Are...

    Miss having indicator in side mirrors

    Most of my previous cars had a small indicator incorporated in the side mirrors. So you could make sure you were indicating at a glance when making a manoeuvre without having to check the dash. I really miss it in this car. Was it an option at all, or just not something Porsche do?

    Q. Taycan model and battery degredation?

    I read on here recently about things that 'age' the battery. One of them was constant fast discharges (acceleration) iirc. So it got me thinking, if different models used the same battery and are driven typical to their potential (TS>T>4S>RWD) will this have an impact on battery degredation...

    What do you keep in your frunk?

    This is my first Porsche and as soon as I picked it up I just threw the Porsche charger and also my home charging lead in the Frunk (or Froot in the UK ?). Seems to make more sense as I am more likely to use the boot (trunk) for other things.....shopping etc. And the leads just fit in there...

    EVs v ICE long term durability

    The Taycan is my first EV and I know very little about them from a long term durability perspective. Especially compared to ICE cars that I have been used to. I am guessing that enough people have now had EVs (Teslas?) longer term and may have some input on this. I appreciate the batteries...

    I have got the RWD without Sport Chrono so my options are Range, Normal and Sport. I never use Range unless the car defaults to it. But I was just wondering what exactly the differences are between Normal and Sport? And do you get an actual performance improvement in sport, in that if you...

    Following the thread on the general servicing section about servicing costs, it would appear that the UK buyers are paying more than other countries for servicing. As some cars approach first service time, could members just update this thread with their experiences / costs please. In the...

    How much control does 'Mothership' have over our cars?

    I was reading a pros and cons about owning a Tesla recently and one of the cons was that effectively the company ultimately controls your car. Then reading on here about them increasing battery for Katrina. It just got me wondering how much control Porsche Mothership has over our Taycans...
