Really helpful thanks. Do you know what colour it was? The pic of you sitting in it makes it look coffee but the main thread pic looks white or crayon. I’ve just switched my order from white to crayon and hoping to hear an impression from someone who’s seem a Crayon CT in the fleshPorsche in Sweden has their first CT touring among the dealers, and my local dealer got it first. So I had a chance to see (but not drive) it live today. In general I think it looks very nice. The back of course resembles the Panamera Sport Tursimo, but it is sleeker and a little more "sports car like". The difference was larger than I expected, which I felt was postive.
The back seat is definitely more comfortable. I am 190 cm (6'3") with fairly long upper body, but I still had a couple of cm head clearance even sitting upright. I would have no problem sitting an hour or two in the back seat (which happens when we are on a longer trip), but I would be reluctant to do that in regular Taycan.
The trunk is not huge, but a little bigger and much more accessible than the regular Taycan. I think it will do nicely also on a longer trip. With the backseat folded it is a pretty descent "transporter".
It was a Turbo S, so the wheel arches were glossy, and I don't think they looked too bad, despite that the car had a pretty light color. I tugged a little at one of them and I wouldn't be surprised if it would be possible to remove them. There is certainly regular paint beneath.
The car also had the offroad package and the extra plastic "flaps" looked even worse than in the configurator. So no regent that I didn't order that
No, I don't know what color it was, but I guess it was coffee. I realize I should have taken more photos. But I only have one that is similar to the first one. Still, you see a little more of the side and the roof rack.Really helpful thanks. Do you know what colour it was?

You can see a little more in the image above, but not much I am afraid.How did the roof rails look? Any more photos?
I keep going back and forth on adding/removing them on my build!
it definitely helps thanks .No, I don't know what color it was, but I guess it was coffee. I realize I should have taken more photos. But I only have one that is similar to the first one. Still, you see a little more of the side and the roof rack.

I don't have any photos but found these:Were the plastic flaps silver, grey vesuve or black ? IMO flaps suit the car perfectly as it gives it a rugged look.
Personally, I think that it looks a little better without, but not enough to prevent me from ordering them since I have use for them.it definitely helps thanks .
In your opinion does it look better with or without? I know it’s subjective... haha
thanks so much for this!!Personally, I think that it looks a little better without, but not enough to prevent me from ordering them since I have use for them.
Here are some additional images (not mine):
When you sit in any Porsche you should never look so miserable Must have been the colour combination...The backseat about the same. The trunk a bit smaller I would say. The Q5 is short but higher so you can stack your bags higher. But then again you can put one or two smaller bags in the frunk.
Agreed I’m unlikely to take the CT off-road which is why I really hope Porsche produce a Sport Turismo version. On the whole I’m not really a fan of the black plastic wheel arch trims but also like the lower slung version of the Taycan sedan.They were matt black, I suppose the same color as the standard wheel arches. But since the wheel arches, in this case, were glossy black, they contrasted unfavorably. Worse, they didn't really seem to fit, not only visually, but mechanically as well.
Personally don't see the CT as a rugged car, despite the marketing. To me, it is essentially a sporty car with a little more space and a little more clearance. I appreciate both and think the clearance will be useful over speedbumps, on gravel roads, and when there is a lot of snow. But I don't intend to take it offroad.
The picture below is from one of my trips to Iceland. The rental jeep had good clearance and real offroad tires, which were great at the river crossings (there were quite a few of these), but it was absolutely terrible on the normal road. But there are bridges where I live, so I prioritize the normal road-handling
