It's lowered 15mm and I added 10mm spacers with new extended bolts.
My new Normal is the old Deep +5mm.
The Taycan isn't really that low, lol.

I'm not sure how it looks in the pics but I can tell you, in the flesh, it looks great! :)

I made the links myself.

The ball link rod ends are from eBay: https://www.ebay.ie/itm/203057169641

Right are the original ones, left are the new ones.
I made a table with the measurements if you want to (let) do it yourself.


Taycan spacers 10mm.jpg



I added 10mm spacers which are specifically for Porsche (same for the bolts which are 45mm instead of the standard 34mm)

It looks incredible. I am always impressed by people who have such great skills - I can barely make soup much less links for a car that I will drive at high speeds ;)

congrats!

I love the attitude the car now projects. You have skills most of us will never achieve. I think the only thing missing is the sport design package in carbon fiber.

15 mm lower is quite a lot? How are you managing speed bumps with this. Do you have to raise the car for these then? Or maybe you do not have so bad speed bumps in Netherlands.

I have problems with a lot of them in the south of France. They are quite aggressive bumps and my car has hit them a lot. If any speed above 25 km/h it grounds in Normal setting. Hard suspension or raised suspension is the only way for me?
Any views?

I first drove around in the lowest setting (deep) for a few months to see how low it actually was.
I managed to get over most speedbumps, no problem whatsoever.
My RX8 is even lower.
This made me come to my conclusion: the Taycan isn't that low in the lowest setting.
Now my new Normal is my old Deep +5mm.
So whenever I come to a really big speedbump I'll put it in Normal.

Today I drove around and still it's possible to get over them.
So yes, our roads are great but there are some nasty ones also.
Speed is everything in this matter (maybe that's why they're called speedbumps, I don't know...) and shocks of course.
I'm driving in Sport Plus all the time, still very comfortable, and I'm able to still get over them in the lowest setting.
For other cases, I still have Normal (+20mm) and Lift (+40mm).
:)

If it's on a lift, you can take the fronts off without taking the wheels off, no problem.

The rears need the rear wheels taken off for convenience but it can be done without.
Just cuz I was adding spacers the wheels were off already.

Thanks. When you say new normal is deep plus 5mm do you mean the new standard ride height is now 5mm higher than the lowest setting before?

Is the first pic the new normal and therefore you can lower more if you select the lowest setting? ( not that I’m suggesting you want to as sits perfect)

PS Did you guys notice that the ride height you select in Normal will be the same as in Sport?
Only Sport Plus has it's own: deep.
So annoying.
I want:
Normal: normal.
Sport: low.
Sport Plus: deep.

Individual is of course the one you select individually.

Is your height on Sport Plus really called "Deep"? On my car, it only is referred to as "Lowest."
