  1. Time to Say Goodbye, and Thanks for all the Electrons.

    Great shots Don! We got a bit of snow on Friday just north of Boston. Am guessing the areas you showed are a "winter wonderland" now?
  2. Time to Say Goodbye, and Thanks for all the Electrons.

    I'm really sorry to see you go Don. I thoroughly enjoyed following you daily on your road trip when you first got the Taycan. I also find your posts here both very informative and entertaining. It's been a real pleasure and I wish you the best wherever life may lead. If nothing else, reading...
  3. Don Breaks His Taycan - The Saga of the 12v Battery

    Did Porsche have any thoughts on using a third-party EVSE (in particular, ChargePoint Flex) to charge the Taycan? FWIW, I've been using a ChargePoint Home (the previous generation EVSE) to charge my BMW i3 and never have a problem.
  4. Bugs & Feature Requests - Results of 11,000 miles of driving

    Real thorough job on this Don. Will be interested to see if Porsche reaches out to you about this.
  5. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful trip with us Don. I think it was a fantastic experience not only for you but also for the many followers you have here. I'm located just outside Boston and a member of the Northeast Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA). If you ever consider...

    I'm curious where you heard this since Porsche has been touting this capability from early on. My guess is it will be much more tightly controlled than Tesla's "here's something you can beta test for us" mentality...

    Great shots Don. Too bad International Freedom Park was closed; unfortunately it is very fitting...

    Total agreement. I'm surprised this engineering choice by Tesla didn't show up as a problem during crash testing. I'm fine with the extra inconvenience.

    If you enjoy seafood and don't mind splurging for a really great meal, my favorite seafood restaurant on the planet is Mama's Fish House in Paia.
  10. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    Great write-up. The one thing that really struck me was the fact that you folks are all first-time Porsche owners! Not sure if you've all been to Germany, but I would HIGHLY recommend visiting Stuttgart (including of course the factory in Zuffenhausen) to get a feeling for not only the...
  11. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    In 1999 I went on a PCA Treffen to the factory in Zuffenhausen and the people at the factory actually seemed bothered by the concept of a Porsche "garage queen". "Our cars are meant to be driven!" You're making them proud Don!

    Actually, quick question on your trip Don. I wonder why you decided to do the Canadian portion of your trek first? I would think the weather in Canada would be less of an issue if you had gone "clockwise" instead of "counter-clockwise" on your loop...
  13. Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    Wow, I don't think you could make this stuff up Don! It seems awfully coincidental... I would be really curious whether the power problem was due to you using their charger. At least you're able to charge it using Level 2.

    What a beautiful place Don. And is that a selfie? :) I was going to suggest you do that since there a lot of us following your great adventure and this way we can put a face to the name...

    At the minimum Don, it sounds like you were well treated by Porsche of Calgary. My gut feel it probably was a car/charger incompatibility issue and not an issue specifically with your car, but that was just a guess. I think the fact that the car logs didn't show an issue with the car itself...
  16. Impact of Taycan on equilibrium-is it just us?

    I had a similar situation as a passenger in a Tesla Model 3 Performance. I normally love the sensation of speed, but I didn't enjoy that sudden acceleration. Am guessing at least part of the unpleasantness was due to being a passenger. I think the "launch mode" on any performance EV is a...
