I am genuinely shocked by how much attention this car attracts on a daily basis.

I’ve had my Jet Black Metallic TTS for 3000~ miles now and I’m just astounded by how much attention the car gets on a daily basis.

Every time I drive it one of the following happens:

- people stopping me to talk about it.
- thumbs up from pedestrians / other drivers.
- other cars speeding up to see it up close.
- boy racers trying to race, good luck with that 🤣
- people taking photos of it.

I was actually going for a low key spec, ie brake callipers painted black rather than yellow etc and I’d expect this kind of reaction from an exotic but it seems there’s something about the taycan that has a real presence.

Have you experienced similar? 911 drivers is it a similar thing for you? I love 911s but I wouldn’t turn my head or give a thumbs up to the driver of a 911 - not out of rudeness, I just wouldn’t consider it a particularly noteworthy car, you see one every ten minutes in London!

I’ve attached pics for reference. I’d be interested to hear your experiences!

yes! my wife comments about that as well (head turning) as its her daily (CT Wagon).. its about the same as when we drive our 78 VW Westy, but get more happy smiles with the bus vs the woah, that thing is insane looking with the CT :p

Hey,

Beautiful car….I could see why your car attracts that attention. I get a few looks/comments each day…I’m guessing the vast majority have no idea it’s totally electric….that is definitely the case for the people I actually speak to about our car. We’re six weeks into our ownership…we’re loving it!

Had our Taycan Turbo S CT for a week now, I reckon it gets more attention than my old GT3 RS and current GT4 combined. Had someone chase me round the car park to tell me how much they don't like Porsches yet loved my Taycan, especially the colour" (Neptune Blue)

I’ve not had one negative interaction so far. People can drive a bit aggressively sometimes and the odd jerk sitting in the fast lane trying to get you to undertake so they can cut you off but that’s about it. Some dad brought his kid over the other day, was sweet.

Not why we bough ours, but we get loads of compliments as well. Pedestrians even took pictures of ours probably not even knowing we were sitting inside (very dark tint) while parking in a lot. An Audi driver rolled down his window to give us a thumps up, which we returned but then realized he probably couldn't see it.

You are completely correct I get constantly thumbs up and people stopping and pointing shouting cool car
When I had my Miami blue 911 it did turn heads but seems the Taycan is even more of a head turner
My wife did comment the other day that we don’t seem to attract so many idiots always tailgating etc as we did in the 911
But hey it’s such a cool car I stop and stare when I see one and I drive the thing 🤣

I didn’t buy mine for attention - I’d have gone for mamba green and kept the yellow brake callipers if that was the intention. Just genuinely took me by surprise!

I get a kick out of watching people in the car behind me at stoplights sort out the blacked out "Porsche" in the taillight of my CT.

I don't get a kick out of all the racers in pickup trucks thinking they're racing me.

I have a Stormtrooper spec TTS sedan with the painted Mission E’s and I too cannot really drive without someone giving a thumbs up, taking pics, asking questions, etc. There are surprisingly few Taycans on the road here in Northern NJ. I have passed a Taycan or two where the other driver has flashed his/her high beams at me as a nod. I’ve started doing that now too…
