    Taycan Tire Expectancy?

    I usually expect to replace my tyres max 14k miles. All the performance tyres wear quickly, especially so now with the power and weight of a Taycan

    BMW XM. What are they thinking?

    It’s no X6M, but it is a looker 😂 Honestly screw BMW. I was actually gonna consider a new M4 the last gen then they released *that* grill. They really need to take a hard look at how much they’re ruining their brand

    12v battery fails, Hyundai’s insight into their root cause

    My C63 drained it's 12v battery twice and it was 100% due to the app and the constant connectivity that kept it draining the 12v battery. One of the engineers confirmed it and said they were working on bug fixes for a long time but never fixed it. The My Porsche app does not seem to do the same...

    Buyers of New Porsche Taycan Face Wait Times of 6 to 9 Months

    It is not a political claim to say the war has screwed production for a lot of car manufacturers and other European businesses 🤦🏼

    Taycan Turbo Sport Turismo arrives in the cold and dark!

    The ride isn’t harder noticeably. Initial impressions are that NVH is (unsurprisingly), higher and grip is definitely improved. Rolling resistance is noticeably worse when the motors are decoupled. Whilst this makes total sense, I don’t think I expected it to be really quite noticeable in normal...

    Taycan Turbo Sport Turismo arrives in the cold and dark!

    thanks mate, appreciated No plans to go North of the Watford gap any time soon 😁. Here in the Costa Del Saaf it’s a good time to swap, morning temps are going up and mainly it’s rain to worry about, which these will deal with fine 👍🏻 Am expecting a drop in range, but then the temperature...

    Taycan Turbo Sport Turismo arrives in the cold and dark!

    Summer boots on. I may update with differences between these and the 20" Turbo Aero rims, if anyone is interested. Initial impression is that there are marked differences even on a short journey!

    If true… "The coming EV batteries will sweep away fossil fuel transport, with or without net zero"

    Yeah this is it. It’s a heavy car for sure, but overstated when you look at competitive stats. To be fair too: the new Prius is a nice looking car!

    If true… "The coming EV batteries will sweep away fossil fuel transport, with or without net zero"

    I hope we do manage to drop weight in batteries significantly. But as above a lot of the weight - in modern cars in general, not just EV’s…is in the strengthening. A lot of journo’s talk about the Taycan as if it’s an absolute beast, but how much heavier is it than the Panamera? 200kgs? Now this...

    Lotus Type 133 Saloon info

    I think it’s interesting and having driven a few, albeit much much lighter, Lotus’s I think it could be a car with excellent drive-ability. The best handling car I’ve driven properly was an S2 Exige. It seems like Lotus have got their interior quality up now too. With Geely’s expertise as well...

    Taycan Turbo vs Audi E-Tron S Prestige

    I agree. Had some on an S3 (that I didn’t choose but got a massive discount on, long story), and I ended up hating the look and of course: never ever using them 100% with this comment. I absolutely hate the SUV fastbacks. A BMW X6 being a particularly pet hate of mine 🤮 I get the E-torn as a...

    If you buy a Taycan, be prepared for a lot of this...

    I get a lot of gawps when I’m around town in mine. Had a lad cycle into a telegraph pole yesterday as he looked behind him at my car. Luckily, he just about managed to stay on the bike 😂
