I have just noticed a faint whistling wind air noise that can be heard in cabin windows up at speeds as low as 40mph - has anyone else had anything similar with their 2022 taycan wagon? Thanks!

I have this on my new 2022 Taycan 4S, very slight noise, I can only hear when I am going 30-40mph. on the driver side, but I haven't had a passenger listen...

Mine is at around 40-50 mph on a very quiet road surface. I will tape the surrounding of the windshield to see if it does disappear. I will see what to do after that.

I haven't gotten my car yet, but the loaner 4s CT I've been driving has been surprisingly quiet at essentially any speed. I can't say that I've heard any wind noise whatsoever (only slight tyre noise at high speeds).

I experience the same noise at various speed (low to high) in my 2020 taycan turbo on the driver side only.

I test drove a Taycan CT4 today and there was a whistling noise above 45mph, love to know if this is a widespread problem as it was very obvious and quite annoying!

A couple times the driver side rear window didn’t fully lift/tuck after closing the door and creating a wind whistling noise at speed. I had to quickly push the window button down then up to seal it. Not sure what caused the window to do that but my 6yo often doesn’t close the door fully (she must be spoiled by the soft close on our other car).

Not saying this is the silver bullet but it’s worth checking.

I just ordered some spray silicone from Amazon after I saw a segment on this subject on Motor Week. The idea is to spray/wipe some on the rubber gaskets to keep them soft and pliable. While it shouldn't be needeed on a new car, worth a try.

Could this be resonance from the electric motor , or is it clearly from wind?
Good point however when you follow a car the noise disappear because the car in front of you shield you from the wind.

Hi :) I got the same problem with my Taycan CT 2022, did you find any solution to this annoying noise?

me 2.
did not notice it over a year. Now it's there after a workshop visit.
I'd say, clearly wind whistle noise at 70-80kph depending on the wind (speed and direction).
already checked folding mirror while driving: still whistling at the A-pillar.
may be I try some taping to narrow it down.

I 100% have the wind whistle coming from the driver's side. It's super annoying...it starts around 25-35 mph and can be heard windows up or down. When I fold the mirrors in, the sounds lessens, but is definitely still there. I have no idea what to do... I have a 22 4 CT. Anyone make any progress on this?
