New model no discount I'd say.

Extended leather interior - plastic city otherwise.

Brave colour choice but looks good in the flesh.

Off road design pack adds more plastic and looks cheap (sorry) - aesthetically better without.

Body coloured electric folding mirrors.

Comfort Access

19kW AC onboard - do you need it, do you have a suitable supply at home?

Looks great!! I have a very similar build (but in Chalk)

I don’t think you need the 19.2kw adapter (it also disables plug and charge... which is the main difference between MY21 and MY20!)

Did you get an allocation yet / estimated delivery?

19.2 kW charger is not a thing in north america - very very few public chargers you will encounter will provide this level of L2 EV AC charging (some but rare) - I’d only get this if you plan to have a 100/80 amp EVSE in your home and need to charge your taycan @ home in 5 hours or less from 10% battery or less.

consider the 14-way massage seats - my wife loves mine and made me add them to her 2021 SUV

Will rethink the 19.2 adapter. Seems a common comment from other members as well. Thanks

the 14 way seat is part of the Premium package

Not sure my reply posted properly, so here it is: I am finalizing my purchase next week or so and if delivery not before October, probably will not put this new wonderful car on winter roads first. If possible/available, I would look at European delivery in March/April 2022. Thanks

Well...I finally crossed that bridge and pushed my order in for Taycan Cross Turismo 4 in Mamba Green today. And newcomer to Porsche after many years with Peugeot, Volvo, Audi, and Mercedes Benz. We'll see...

As the delivery is to be November-December, I have decided to wait until May 1st, 2022. IMHO, in this country, you do not want to break in a car like that in 20cm of snow every week for 5 months. The MB will have to endure another winter.

This will test my patience quite a bit, but I am comfortable with the decision.

Thanks to the advice I received from some of you, my configuration makes sense now to me.

Thanks
