Greetings all!

I have spent the last 25 years honoring the E28 that my father gifted me when he upgraded to a newer model. About a decade ago I told myself that I would keep driving this car until there was an electric option that was right for me.

After 350,000 miles, that time has hopefully come. My handle here is a portmanteau of the Japanese "uma" meaning "horse" and the Viola Metallic color of the Taycan I am hoping to receive in a few months.

Much gratitude to all of the posters here - the knowledge I gained from lurking on this forum and Rennlist was absolutely essential in making my decisions on how to spec the build get anywhere remotely in the neighborhood of "informed".

Without you all, I might as well have thrown darts at the configurator.

Hello from Croatia. About to become a Taycan owner very soon. No Porsche or EV experience so far in my 30 years driving experience. Thank you for answering my future questions :).

Taycan 4S+ Pure White
Country flag
Hello from France,

Just signed for a 2022 Taycan 4S+ with 29000 kms wealthy loaded. Previoulsy 2 times Panamera Turbo owner, it's about time for us to fully switch to EV at home. Wife already took the plunge last year, mine turn now.
The Taycan is a complete different animal from the Panamera. The Taycan's interior can't match high quality assembly & materials from the Panamera. But the Taycan is so agile (at least with the rear-wheel steering), so easy to drive at low speed downtown and so much better suspended that I'm so excited thinking about commuting daily behind the Taycan's wheel. Plus the Taycan has a Supercar body. What a beauty!

2 quick pics at the dealer.
Delivery date is September 26. I can't wait.

Congratulations!

Don't forget to buy the Tire & Wheel insurance (both damage & cosmetic repair). Those 21" Mission-E's are prone to curb scrapes 😀 (speaking from lot's of experience here, and I'm way better than average at parallel parking).

Hi Everyone

Thanks for accepting me in the group. I have cancelled my new Taycan order last weeks and got a used Taycan 4s delivered today - added Profilm matte ppf. Looks stunning and drives great. Feels like a brand new car. Replacing Audi etron sportback - the Taycan is at another level ( driving,interior, screens).
I have been following the forum in the last few weeks - thanks everybody for the shared info.

Hello forum, here a message from the Netherlands.
Just joined a few weeks ago. Multiple Porsches through the years...presently Taycan Sport Turismo RWD. Very happy with the car and the specs.

Congrats on the car - looks great!

I was just passing through Schiphol last week. Next time I'll be spending time in Amsterdam to break up my trip. What a great city!

And weren’t you just recently in Tanzania?

Anyway, I’m in Western Mass (01002) to where my used 4CT completed its cross country journey on Friday after starting in Bellevue (from the Infiniti dealer although had been purchased and serviced by the prior owner at the Porsche dealer literally across the street).

So far only local drives but absolutely loving. Had been hoping to combine the best attributes of my wife’s 2023 BMW i4 M50 and my 2022 Audi A6 Allroad (which we will keep for awhile given the state of the CCS1 DCFC network in the Northeast, especially further north of us), and indeed it does along with some impressive Porscheness plus outrageous styling that … well, as my sister-in-law commented when I pulled up to her house today, “This car is too fancy for Amherst and Northampton.” She was smiling when she said it, but still…

Get used to it - you're going to get a lot of positive looks and comments. If you like getting social about it, try sitting in a Starbucks parking lot and people will just drop by to ask about the car 😀.

Yep, and Tanzania was unbelievable. Saw over 30 different animal species, over 40 bird species, some really exotic plants (e.g., Baobab tree, sausage tree, etc.), the Big 5 (Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Rhino, and Cape buffalo), the Ugly 5 (Wildebeest, Warthog, Vulture, Hyena , Maribu Stork), and of course the great wildebeest migration across the Mara river (with vultures and crocodiles downstream to pick up the ones who didn't make it). We even got to see a lion kill, and elephants chasing lions to protect their young. Best part was the people - they're super friendly.

Wow, Tanzania does sound amazing!

Staffer at Firestone for my state inspection today wanted to talk at length about the Taycan. Then some random guy waiting in line complimented me on it as I was leaving.
Although not my kind of thing, the Cross Turismo styling is still knocking me out every time I approach it.
And just in case I haven’t posted this same picture in enough threads, here’s the first real drive:

Hi everyone, another Irish Taycan fan here. I love the forum I have trawled through so so many threads already and it has been incredibly useful in helping to decide on a spec for my order.

Still waiting on a GTS ST -have a build date in November and will register the car in January. First time I have ever bought a brand new car. Have found the wait to be agonising (so much time to wonder if its a bad life decision) but have managed to hold firm!

Don't stress out on this. Every time you drive the car you will know you made the right decision 😀

Hi all. Recently registered and ordered a CT4 2 weeks ago. A complete about turn as I’d got a defender on order but talking to a neighbour who just got a Cayman GT4 I just completely changed my mind.

Always been a fan of the taycan and another neighbour got a 4s saloon earlier this year. Absolute beast of a machine.

I debated the 4s over the 4 but decided to add options to the 4.
