Porsche Taycan 4S+, Tesla Model S (for sale)

Sorry, for my delayed posting. When you get your hands on a Taycan, you will never let go:)

I took the delivery on Wednesday after a long wait. Since then I have been driving daily and I had a few hours trips this Weekend. The Taycan has lot of features that I am still learning. I had the pleasure of driving a Taycan on the ring this Winter and I got to know its ability on the track. Since I’m coming from Tesla Model S 90D (2016), I use the Model S as a benchmark. The specification of my Taycan is based on that. On my Model S I have the Full Self Driving package, which in Europe is quite limited compared to what you get in California. The Taycan has InnoDrive and lane keeping assistance, which I will compare with Tesla’s autopilot. I was positive surprised how good the InnoDrive and lane keeping assistance is. To my opinion its far better than the autopilot I have on my Tesla. The driving of the Porsche is smooth and not nervous like Tesla’s wiggling and phantom breaks. The Porsche let the driver being the boss and don’t fight back like my Tesla do, when you want to oversteer the car. My Taycan shows road crosses and roundabouts and slows down automatically the speed smoothly and keep that speed throughout the roundabout. The Taycan also read speed signs including temporary speed signs excellently, and with a little push on the handle the Taycan adopts the new speed limit smoothly. I just love this car:rock:

I took some pictures this weekend. (see also the attached files) I have the Standard White, and as you can see the light of day reflects differently. The most Yellowish is taken the beginning of Sunset.

Congratulations on a beautiful car - and sorry for the window crack, perhaps it can be repaired,

How does the 4S feel when you punch it - compared to your 90D?

Congratulations!!! Car looks gorgeous. Question - how usable (or unusable) is the middle rear seat? Is it sufficient to get a child into it if required?

Thank you for your report. Love to hear that you like the car, since I am in a very similar situation.

No Sports Crono option, do you miss the dial on the steering wheel to select the drive modes?

Congratulations on your 4s, my white 4s is awaiting delivery.

how do you find acceleration and launch control without sports chrono?

I didn’t order sports chrono either as I figured electric acceleration should be the same either way and launch control comes as standard anyway.

Thanks. No, crack is too big to be repaired. The windshield has to be replaced, but I will wait a bit before I do it.

The 4S gives better punch on high speed, but it feels a bit slow starter when stand still. I think it has something to do with the brakes, when the brakes are on in hold function. It's seems that 90D is quicker to release the brakes. I have to "investigate" further;) I don't compare with launch control since 90D has none of such.

Thanks. There's no ISOFIX on the middle seat, so the child cannot not be too young, and it's probably too small for a teenager if he or she are sitting between two adults. The middle seat passenger has to use the foot garage on the either sides.

I didn't order 4+1 to have a fifth passenger, but to be able to transport skis inside the car :)

No, I don't miss the dial on the steering wheel since I only switch between normal and sport mode using the button on the center console control panel. I haven't used range mode yet. I'm still in the test and learning phase ;)

Thanks, I'm setting the sport mode by the button on the centre console control panel (brake and accelerator in, then release the brake) and then you go .... fast:)

Congratulations on the car and sorry to hear about the windscreen.

It is great to read the report and see the pics, especially given I have ordered a very similar spec - same model, colour, interior and very similar option list.

My 4s was due for delivery in early April but am awaiting to hear the latest when dealer re-opens - soon I hope.

Have fun!

Congratulations on getting your 4S. Sorry about the windshield. I'm looking forward to your experience with Innodrive and LKA. I went for that option too.

Yeah I’m really interested in Innodrive as well. Be cool to do some demos of it.

Looking good SHN! The red interior looks great! Sadly I had to go with black because the other half hates red!
