Hello all,

I'm thinking about a pre-labor day Taycan Fest - participation is voluntary - and will be socially distanced w/masks please!!

Open to all automotive enthusiasts - but particular attention to Taycan owners and those with a Taycan on order, or other EV's

I'm going to take lunch @ Surf City Sandwiches in Aptos - CA this Friday @ 11:45 am - and probably hang out until at least 1 pm…Surf City makes fantastic sandwiches with a bit of a spicy bite - I can highly recommend the "Beer Barnacles" and they are best "hot & fresh" - recommend you order online prior to arriving as they pride themselves on quality and won't be rushed for properly making your order.

I'll be there with my road warrior kit and happy to answer any questions and just share my enthusiasm for this vehicle and other EV's!

take a nice drive with your Taycan across Hwy 17 - and come visit the coast - and let's all bask in the glory of the 2020 Porsche Taycan and our mutual admiration of Porsche and this car…

RSVP to this thread - but it's not necessary.

charging in the Santa Cruz area is challenging - but possible, but you should not plan on having to charge over on this side of the hill - if this is successful we'll probably do another one around thanks giving - and I'll make it a pilgrimage to a place with CCS chargers that also has some near by food - but for now this is a nice day trip and some good twisty mountain roads to exploit the power and handling of your Taycan.

there are some EVGo chargers over here and they are pretty reliable - but I did not pick this place as an EV friendly place - I picked it because I wanted to do lunch @ surf city and would love to see other Taycan's from the Bay Area.

I'd love to drive by but the last time I worked in California was about 1993, damn :D! I can offer steaks in Munich, though, just in case you'll make it here.

Would love to too - maybe something a bit further north closer to SF? :)

A meetup is a great idea. I picked my car up a week ago and still trying to work through the setup. I would really appreciate an opportunity to talk to others going through the same connect issues that I have experienced. Hope I can make it , but if not this time then next.

I'll suggest another date around/after halloween and pick somewhere in Palo Alot or something like that - near an EA charger ;-) so we can all get our cars locked up to the charging stations and call porsche together to come save us.

my apologies on the location it's what worked this week - and since I'm the "organizer" it's what's happening this week - I'd love to see any other Taycan besides my own :clap: - all are welcome.

If we do St John's again, there's a bunch of EA chargers a block away.

Thanks Dave for setting this up. It was great to meet you and Wiley. I especially appreciated all the help you gave me in setting up all options on the PCM I didn't even know I had or where to find them. The PlugShare app was helpful In finding the third EA charging station on the way home in Pleasanton that finally did work. Looking forward to the November get together!!

the pics were limited - it was @wil932 and his fantastic wife, @porsche_coyote and @daveo4EV - and Two Taycans - @wil932 and mine shown below (but not on that day)

my apologies - I’m not much a picture person, but honestly with only 4 people, and 2 Taycan’s you’ve now seen all there is to see - I’m hoping for a better turn out in November.
