Very nice. Chalk is a fantastic color on the Panamera so I'm not surprised it looks great on the Taycan.

The real primer paint code was Aviator Gray for the Audi TT. :p
I had that car! I loved it! Agree that it looked like shiny primer, though!

Wow, thanks for posting. Been waiting for som epics as I’ve ordered chalk/ crayon, and really happy seeing it.
Only disappointment is the front brake callipers. Look tiny now on the front and a bit gutted I’m having to pay £2k extra for for marginally bigger callipers in white when I’d of preferred red!

Yes, but the front disc on the 2021 model is supposed to have almost the same diameter as the 2020 model, only loosing 5 mm going from 415 mm to 410 mm. So maybe it’s just the angle of the photo?

Still very disappointing that the calipers are smaller. One advantage of having the 2020 instead of the 2021...

It’s not just the size of the disc that’s changed for 2021 MY. The callipers have reduced significant from 10 piston to 6 piston apparently in an effort to reduce weight (11kg’s lighter) and in recognition that the use of regenerative breaking means the front brakes are simply not required to be so powerful. Personally I am gutted as I loved the look of the huge callipers! :(

As Woody says, callipers have gone from 10 piston to 6 piston and this is the first shot I’ve seen of the 6 pot with 21” e mission wheel and look really small to me, and pretty sure not angle of photo.

If 6 pistons is more than enough on the Turbo (with PSCB) why do you still need 10 pistons on the Turbo S? (with PCCB)
