Got an email from Porsche today: Porsche is conducting a Service Campaign to update the power electronics and engine electronics (DME) software in your Taycan.

MY22 picked up Jan 22.

Any ideas what this update is specifically about?

Got the same email, sounds like an update but they call it recall. Weird.

Yes weird

I was hoping for the FOD email that others have got, not sure why I haven't got that email.

As I said in some other thread: I’ve been called by a dealer, that there are several recall and they’ll need about 6 hour to perform all tasks…
I’m going there next Thursday, and they’ll also replace winter tires back to summer.

Sounds like a PIWIS update. I had AMB5 last year so maybe a collaboration of both this and WNA5.

I received the email as well ('22 4S). I'm somewhat hesitant because, up to this point, I have not had any issues with the PCM. This is my first update, so I don't have a reference point if things get better or potentially worse.

I received the same email today, and I haven't even received my car yet. Surely they'll just do the update before they release the vehicle to me?

I got the email as well and scheduled the repair for tomorrow morning. Will report back.

Interestingly, my VIN does not show up on the recall checker.

So I guess it's important but not recall-worthy?

I got the email as well 2021 4S delivered in August 2021. My car was already scheduled for Monday to finally get my second key programmed and a couple other recalls, so I will get them to perform this as well. Hopefully it resolves the "Electronic system error" message I got a couple weeks ago that took 20 minutes to clear before the car would start again. I'll update once I get the car back.

There is a separate post / thread on this from a week or so ago.

Details are also on My Porsche website for your vehicle (if impacted).

@AV7

This is the WNA5 software update - mine already at shop as had asked a couple of weeks or so ago bef this email arrived (to me also) today. Also just confirmed this email is indeed in ref. to the WNA5 update with my service guy at Houston North.

Guess I was lucky to to get a 2021 Macan Loaner but man that particular 'baby' blue color hurts my eyes :)! He mentioned there were already a few Taycan's ahead of me so suspect I might not get my car until next week, maybe this Sat if lucky!
