I asked. Apparently Porsche don’t offer wireless charging on ANY of their cars in the UK. I must admit though I’m sure I had a Panamera with wireless charging in the arm rear !! Please let me know what they say.

Just collected my 4S in the UK and it's the same, i.e. no Qi wireless charging :confused: Like someone else said, I don't understand why this feature is country specific - especially as it carries the 'CE' mark (for Europe)? I too will ask my dealer on Friday. Was so looking forward to the convenience of wireless charging.
Well now UK is leaving the EU perhaps they have to certify the wireless charging domestically?

Guys It’s really not a big deal. Buy any USB-C wireless charger from amazon and place it within the middle arm rest and it will do the same job!

On the other hand just buy a USB-C to lightening cable for £5 and plug the phone in!

You need the cable to get Apple Car Play anyway.

It’s disappointing we have to find out this way. I know it’s not the fault of the salespeople because they receive very little info, but when you’re spending this kind of money the little details matter.

Maybe it’s a licensing issue? Maybe Porsche couldn’t acquire the legal rights to the patents?

I’m reaching here. No idea. Just random thoughts.

According to what Porsche Reading told me it’s something to do with the fact that the Porsche wireless charging setup is power overrated, and therefore not certified for safe use in the UK. Seems weird to me but that’s what I was advised.
