Another thing i noticed - there seems to be no way to delete the side door "electric" designation, anyone is able to find how to delete that? in the old configurator it used to be an "opt-in" option

I also noticed that the US version refers to the sedan as a "Sports Limousine" which is pretty damned funny. I suspect somebody in web dev was doing using a bad German - English translator.

They have in the past defined it as a limousine. Which is good for window tinting in Minnesota. Passenger cars are limited to 50% tint on all windows. Trucks, and limousines can have arbitrarily dark tint behind the driver. That let us tint the rear windows a bit more so it's just that much harder to casually look in the back to see what goodies are in there.

The standard steering wheel is heated. There are options for sport/GT wheels, only available with Sport Chrono (as before).
I thought I’d read that the standard wheel now is now heated and has the drive mode knob (used require Sport Chrono), but you have to get Sport Chrono to get Push-to-Pass.

Correct, but @DougFrisk stated the 'heated' aspect of the wheel requires SportChrono (it doesn't).

It does sound amusing, but it’s just a terminology / lost in translation thing, it only means sedan. I get the same thing with BMWs sometimes when looking at tech docs or parts catalogs.

Because I didn't realize that the heated wheel is now standard. As I was trying to replicate our current build there was no heated wheel option, which we paid $280 for. Somehow, I just couldn't imagine Porsche not having everything a la carte and actually including that with the base build.

Yup, same here. Upon seeing the list of standard equipment of the Macan EV, I felt a bit shortchanged. But, on the balance, a post-refresh Taycan configured exactly as mine is still ~10k more expensive, so 🤷‍♂️

Has anybody be able to save a configuration on the US website? I keep getting an "We are not able to save your configuration at the moment Please try again later" error.
I had the same problem.
