    October 2023 Deliveries

    @bn8959 It’s a bit hard to know what exactly triggered the delay in Porsche Exclusive Manifaktur, but I suspect that it’s part of the Oleo Black+Atacama beige where for the additional (optional) leather, I have chosen Atacama stitching for the black leather pieces.

    Neodyme og standard (black) interior accents..

    Volcano Grey exterior, Black/Atacama Oleo leather interior, and dark silver accents (GT5). The Neodyme is, in my opinion, way too much bling, which makes it look cheap.

    New 24' Taycan GTS Metallic white

    That’s a rather strange post. But I respect your personal opinion. «chacun fait ce qu'il lui plait» In that context I am convinced you wont like my build: my car is so fundamentally de-GTS’ed that there are only 2 places where it possible to perceive it is in fact a GTS: the door sills and...

    Private plates - cheesy or cool?

    After thinking it through, and as delivery of my Taycan GTS is getting close, I have decided to take the plunge and reserve a private (vanity) plate, for the following reasons: 1. the car will be registered in Belgium, and any available combination of up to 8 letters and number can be reserved...

    —-apologies for thé replay in Dutch to a message i received in Dutch —- Jos, Bedankt voor jou berichtje. Toch wel, vooraleer ik de knoop doorhakte om een Taycan GTS te bestellen heb ik met een Tesla S en een Tesla 3 gereden, alsook met een Audi e-tron GT, kwestie van de alternatieven te...

    Why do so many people want a Taycan to be more like Tesla?

    Both here, on YouTube and in car magazines, I read a lot of comments (even journalists that claim to be professional) that a Porsche Taycan is a good car, but that it would be better if it were more line a tesla… The main suggestions of these posters/journalists are: 1. Taycan lacks 1-pedal...

    Freeze date in 1 week - thoughts on GTS spec

    First impressions of standard audio system (compared to Bose system)

    Interesting subject… While ordering my GTS, I have carefully considered the audio options against my use-case and the cost of the systems vs. alternative electronics for my budget. I did specify an upgraded sound system on my 911-996, and given the loud engine noise in that car, found it a...

    Thank you! * For home charging, 7kW or max 11 kW is indeed enough, unless there is a specific reason to charge faster. The 22kW option gives flexibility in hotels etc… * The plan is to start with the Porsche Solution, with the Mobile charger Connect, and see how that goes. It’s a neat box and...

    Potential 4S owner...

    yes it’s a 2000 kg 14 m3 steel and aluminium mastodont, but the 598 Hp, surround view (Park assist) and all wheel steer (RAS) make it very agile. In reality it feels nimble, swift and flexible, full of tricks to keep the driver happy… And «happy» is what matters, isn’t it?
