I am not sure if anyone noticed or mentioned already, but this option is now available for $4,760 in the US configurator. I am probably going to add it to my order, which is getting locked next month.

There is already a thread on this topic perhaps you missed it? Prices in US and Europe for GTS saloon also covered but not UK yet however it will just be a simple exchange rate conversion.

Availability on the GTS ST is not yet known but likely much later in the year.

Do you know the likely uk price of this option?

Closer to £4K is my guess (depending on exchange rate). Either way it is an outrageously expensive option and price hike over and above the standard panoramic roof (£1,137) for a piece of electronic wizardry (and we know how well that goes on the Taycan!) that we won't be able to experience before committing to our builds if we want a car this year.

In the other thread, I suggested it would cost around £4k, but I have since come up with a more likely figure by comparing the cost of the pano roof between German and UK configurators.

Pano roof: €1606.50 = £1137

Assuming Porsche uses the same conversion rate;

VLC Pano roof: €5045.60 = £3570

The price on the German configurator is €5K - not sure what the VAT equivalent is so this will account for a variance. As it stands just now that makes it £4K+ (incl 20% VAT).

Are the figures not inclusive of German VAT (19%) equivalent?

Given that the other options are not priced in GBP v EUR at the prevailing FX spot rate, I'm not necessarily sure why we would expect the Panoramic roof to be so?

Porsche will charge what they think they can get away with, which could be quite different!

I would be surprised if it is >£4,000 or <£3,000.

Hope for £3k, plan for £4k :D
It should be the same price (small premium perhaps) as the one it replaces if they ditched the standard roof - no need for 2. Porsche already make super profits and now time to give something back to us beta testing Taycan owners!

That would be nice, but extremely unrealistic, particularly given the prices quoted in other markets.
Plus it's not unreasonable to offer 2 sunroof choices, given the plethora of other choices on the car!

Well - 2 fixed pano roofs neither of which open. On other Porsches opening Panos cost around the same as the standard and come with an electric blind (my Pano ST had 2 independent sliding blinds for example).

First it was the rear cycle carrier (£1,600) and now Porsche are taking the proverbial p!sh with the pricing on this one IMHO!

If £3k it’s outrageous. I was expecting it to be a 50% mark up on pan roof so c.£500 extra… can’t see why it’d be so much more unless the tech is very expensive (it’s been there for 15 years with Maybach and the SL had the magic sky long ago too….)
