1.5 years into this model and presumably most of the models have been announced. Aside from a possible Sport Turismo and GTS [and a moonshot coupe] that’s pretty much it for a car that has to last a 7 year cycle. Perhaps they’ll do incremental power and battery improvements; otherwise seems pretty unorthodox how they’re handling this line.

so rare that there is a US NHTSA recall?
some issues maybe rare but if your are affected the rarity of the problem is irrelevant.
do you own a taycan? I ask because most owners have received recall notices and are very aware of the issue.
On order

It’s not. The car is a complete failure. Everyone who has one hates it.

In the below poll, 100% of the people who voted “disappointed” are disappointed in the car.

Serious question - why do you still own it? Sell it and end your/our misery.

Wow that’s news to me, all those technical accolades and performance tests and deeply impressed auto journalists and out selling of almost every other Porsche model around the world must just be all hype then.

such a simple solution!
why didn't I think of that?
maybe because I signed a 39 month contract to lease the car.
but thanks for your very special insights.

You're quite welcome. And be assured we all enjoy hearing all of your bitching.

it could be hype, do you really trust media reports on cars? or anything else?

the reality is that the taycan has many warts, some are minor inconveniences but others are serious.
the larger issue is how porsche is (not) handling the issues people are having.
there are many instances where people have been without the use of their car for week/months with little movement from porsche to get the cars right.
