I purchased the Launch Edition of the Taycan Turbo and believe I may have been slighted by either my dealer or Porsche. Two things: 1. When I saw the car there were 2 soft sided bags in the rear trunk. When i picked the car. They were gone. The dealer said they were ‘covers’ for unveiling the car. But i saw a video which the person showing the car said they were Porsche luggage. I am in the US and the other was in the UK. 2. For some reason, the no-cost 25 ft extension cord, a no-cost option on new Taycans, was not included in the specs. Now the dealer wants $1,000. For the extension which i do need.
Appreciate any help.

Yep I had the same, launch edition Turbo S, I think my cable was $800. I had a previous cable for my Panamera Hybrid but they changed the socket housing slightly between the chargers so you have to get a new one!!!

Thanks. I am asking Porsche to provide it ‘gratis’. How about the so- called luggage? Or was it only the unveiling cover. Much appreciated.

JohnC,
Did the build sheet for your car include option NW2, Mobile Charger Connect? That was shipped with the car and was in the soft sided pouch you saw. Your dealer is BSing you.

Thanks. I will check build sheet. The soft- sided pouch included the cable, correct?

I arranged a second charger as part of the deal as I have 2 properties. I can deal with the short on at one of them, and have the 25ft at the other.
