    New Taycan Owner - charging frustration with mobile app!

    If you normally plug-in your car when you arrive home and recharge immediately, you can warm the battery and car later (e.g., next morning) using charger energy by using the Connect app to preheat the car an hour before you leave (no timers, just use the pre-heat / cool button’s one hour...

    New Taycan Owner - charging frustration with mobile app!

    One side benefit of simply plugging in the charger when you arrive (home, work, etc.) is you are charging a warm battery - especially better in the winter.

    Summer vs All Season

    Interesting data. Some summer tires cannot be stored or driven at or below freezing. When we drive our cars with summer tires near or below freezing, we never stop until we get back home.

    Ask a Porsche Dealer Anything

    After four bespoke Porsche’ in the last eight years, nothing has changed. Local dealers do not know an early lock date until it is too late to change anything. Have learned to make sure of our options two weeks in advance of the estimated lock date.
