You can order the Porsche tyre kit if you like. I didn't due to damage of tyre when using, but its an option. It fits into the frunk on the right hand side. You'll see it in the configurator under wheel accessories.
Charger: Zappi v2
Rate: 7.2 kWH
Installation Location: On pillar at my dedicated parking spots in shared underground car park under my apartment
The charger requires a PIN to be entered before starting the charge (immediate or timed), protecting the charger within a shared...
Not really. PVTS and its variants are really just a Porsche branding layered onto regional implementations. So PVTS+ is Vodafone in Europe but likely something else in the Americas, Asia, etc.
I would imagine it's a combination of regional insurance requirement norms and what suppliers have...
I've always agonised over the configurator with the feeling that if I don't pick right, I'll "ruin" the car. However, when I sit in a (any) Porsche, the specifics often just fade away. I find myself more "forgiving" when I'm sitting in one.
Here is my build...
ParkAssist including Surround View
Great option, you'll use it!
Adaptive Cruise Control
Same, I use it all the time and this also includes Porsche Active Safe which has saved me once! You or next owner will be able to subscribe to InnoDrive if so inclined.
Advanced Climate Control...
Here are my very subjective comments and observations.
Gentian Blue Metallic
I love blue cars – I've got a Neptune Blue on order – but this blue has never been my favourite.
Two-Tone Leather Interior, Smooth-Finish Leather, Black/Crayon
If you are getting this because you like light...
That is useful to know. I've optioned it on my Taycan order because there are 1000s of 22kW public chargers around Ireland.
In countries with similar (like France) I bet this would be a popular upgrade.
I paid €1605 for the 22kW option. Do you know if the €1690 upgrade pricing in Germany...
I know in Ireland my insurer (CHUBB) would send the car back to Porsche Centre of my choice for a OEM windshield and this would have no effect on my premiums and would not be recorded as a claim.
So if it happened to me, I'd expect OEM replacement fitted by Porsche at no cost to me.
No, you have to subscribe at your Porsche Centre. The "national service centre" for UK & Ireland is run by Vodafone. There are 1 year and 3 year deals and as far as I know, they stay with the car and are nontransferable.
I am not familiar with the UK market, however, my insurance is...
I also didn't configure the glass roof. I've optimised my car for the front seat passengers – it will be rare for me to carry passengers in the rear seats.
In my opinion, the glass roof is primarily for the benefit of the rear passengers. I felt it somewhat started a little "back" from where...
I believe informally you get 3 (or is it 5?) false alarms a year. In my first year of Porsche ownership (not a Taycan), I've had two theft activations:
a] First was dropping car in to my Porsche Centre to ask them to take the e-hybrid badges off the door. Forgot to leave the PVTS+ fob in the...
