Nice but 4th new car!?! I’ve had two 2021 4s and now 2022 Turbo S and Many have said that was a little “extra”.
Why all the changes? Car looks great BtW

Thanks , i May repaint the alloys to standard mission e in time but loving it so far ..


I got a 4s in July 2020 ,2nd one in Ireland and the pcm didn’t work from day one
so got a good deal to upgrade to new turbo s in Jan 2021 ,kept that for a year and sold it
then tried a RWD in Jan this year but couldn’t bond with it (turbo s ruined me) so sold it after a month and ordered this turbo then which delivered today

Yeah- I can’t imagine going from a turbo S to a RWD. Talk about underwhelming! I could never go back after the upgrade although I think the standard turbo might be the sweet spot.

This is ice grey…or frozen blue?
I love bright colours, but those wheels should be black.
just my $0.02.

I hear you in the wheels and I May paint them but the silver hue from the ice grey might make the gold wheels work ?!

Not too surprised Graham – Turbo(S) hard to step down from. I've never actually driven the RWD. You are keeping the second hand Irish market nicely fed!

I'm eagerly awaiting my own Turbo S delivery – though its a few months away yet. The 222 plate actually looks good!

Surprised you went for that wheel colour – you had it on your Turbo S (right?) – and I didn't think you loved it there?

It definitely is.

Only reason I'm going Turbo S is that I kept ticking all the options that come standard with Turbo S – miss the yellow carbon ceramic's after my Turbo S Panamera – and at least in Ireland – the higher base price holds its value (in a normal market) much better than the options.

If you don't care for all the options and the ceramic's the Turbo makes a heck of a lot of sense.

Thanks Damien , I can’t wait to see your Turbo S !
I Saw a local Taycan here last week Reg plate 222D666 😂
Yes the wheel colour on the grey one maybe looked better but I was inspired but this type of Porsche look ..

I didn’t really have a choice as could only get a Turbo slot for delivery Pre 2023 . I would rather a Turbo S ! but this is my second car and garage complete now (wife’s electric mini in pic too )

Oh, that's the perfect number plate considering my first name! (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Omen)

My eyes are drawn to the Roma!

To me the two doors, four seats and a boot – is the perfect combination that I would love to have in the Taycan. In practical day-to-day driving do you find it does feel smaller (shorter) than the Taycan ?

How do you find the infotainment vs the PCM ?

Even though mine is brand new my22 it still took 9 hours to do the software update but it feels way snappier !

somehow the Taycan feels bigger compared to the Roma even though they very similar size

to be it’s the perfect mix as they are opposites in every way

Lovely! I think the wheels work with it. Good to see another Taycan on the road here!

the lads on north road must roll out the red carpet for you 😄

did you sell your RWD back to them? I was toying with changing my 221 rwd for a GTS but was disappointed with the trade in value so sticking with it for the moment
