Picked up my new RWD Taycan yesterday and love everything about it! What an amazing car! Coming from a Model Y performance, there is no comparison. The Taycan drives like a sports car and not a fast golf cart :p

Congrats! 🍻 I too got out of a Tesla and ordered a Taycan for daily duty. Mine left the plant a couple days ago.

Congrats! We're delivery buddies, I picked up my black/black RWD Monday as well. I'm also a former Tesla owner. What options did you go with?

I ordered a RWD with a bunch of options that was supposed to be delivered in June but my dealer told me it may not be until Sept! I therefore, decided to go with an inventory RWD. It has premium package, turbo aero wheels, 2+1 seats, sport sound, and crests on the headrests. Nothing too fancy but I'm loving it!

What all did you get?

Did the dealer give you details on the delay? My RWD is slated for June delivery and arrived at port 5/4. Ordered 4/1.

He said it was something about shortage of semiconductor chips. I was disappointed that I couldn’t get what I had ordered but I’m definitely saving some money with going with the inventory model

Premium, HUD, ACC, performance battery plus, sport aeros, and sport sound. It's so easy to option these things to eye watering amounts but I think I exercised reasonable restraint. :CWL:

Do you miss the acceleration of the Tesla MYP? This is one of my concerns moving from a P100D to a 4S.

I went from an S P100D (and also have a MYP) and opted for the Turbo. On a test drive, I felt that the 4S didn’t have the same pull 0-~80mph of the P100D. It was quick, but it didn’t have the “wow” factor. Of course past ~80mph all bets are off. That’s where the two speed transmission of the Taycan shines.

I suspected I would regret not going for the Turbo, and I learned long ago that I would rather spend more and decide later that I over spent vs. not spending enough and regretting it. My car is also highly optioned, and the Turbo includes some of them, so it may result in slightly less depreciation when the time comes.

If you’re in the US, the 4s is the better “value”. But then again, we don’t buy these cars because it’s a good value.
