7% off still isn’t bad at all for a 2021 Turbo S. Is it safe to presume you took one off the lot?

The more I think about it, the more worth it the 2020’s are. I’m looking to lease for 3 years then look into a refreshed Taycan, or perhaps another EV. If I can get a 20-22% discount on a 2020 that has the right options, I’m just gonna go for it. Thank you for the input!
Yes, it just showed up in their showroom. I really wanted the mission-e wheels painted the same color as the car, so they ordered the paint and are doing that for me.

I’m having a difficult time understanding the table - I see bits of English mixed with mostly German.

What sensors are included with factory innodrive? And does the night assistance camera get used for anything else?
Nightvision, rear assist and rear camera are single option. They do not need other options to work. Also they have a smaller controller unit zFAS A. The complex systems got B or C.
The Night view system is not necessary for any other option and not included in any other option.
with park assist plus and innodrive you have all sensors beside the night vision.

Could you further iterate on why the charger being able to communicate with the charging unit is important for you? Perhaps it could be important for me too if I knew, but ignorance gets the best of me.

Regarding deals and discounts - it's the difference between getting a perfect spec 2020 Turbo vs. a 2021 Turbo that's missing a few things I'd like rear axle steering, PDCC, power charge port cover, etc. One of the things swaying me towards a 2021 was the FoD and OTA updates, but based on my driving habits and general real-world use case - I don't use cruise control much since I drive in city roads more than anything, and I don't mind visiting my local dealership since I've made friends with them over the years from owning a GT3 and what not.

My only fear is Porsche coming out with some wicked new tech in a few years, and I'm just left behind in a 2020 because I didn't want to shell out the extra $10-15k now. But what are the odds of that? I'm kind of doubting Porsche will come out with revolutionary tech that could be downloaded to an older car.. seems like something they'd release in a refreshed version so they can lure people out of their older cars and into newer ones.
Autonomous driving will not be realisied for this version of Taycan. Not MY20 not my21
So no fear on that. Also there Will no new functions if you don’t have all the sensors.
they even downgraded with updates, for example with the surround view.

Just putting it out there, could the differences in Innodrive FoD and Innodrive factory be actually the difference if it were paired with LCA/3D parking.

for example my 21MY factory Innodrive (no LCA/3D) has the intersection assist but no rear traffic assist
You can see the sensors that are different in those options in my picture.

Has anyone noticed the added steering wheel button when fitting Innodrive to a Taycan Cross Turismo in the configurator?
I have a Taycan 4S on order which should go into production in April and I also specced Innodrive.
Curious to know whether I will get the added button on a “regular” Taycan.
I already contacted my sales advisor, but am awaiting a reply.

I had noticed this when I was configuring our Cross Turismo and asked the dealer to confirm but they weren’t sure also. I did then try a few options and found that the button appeared when selecting adaptive cruise and not Innodrive.

anyone else confirm please?

Hope this is not a problem, but I am reposting this from another thread as this thread seemed more appropriate to my query.

"Here in Japan, where I have placed my initial order / down payment for a 4S Cross Turismo, scheduled for build in June, delivery in September, there are a number of items I see mentioned in reviews and this Forum which are simply not on the Japanese configurator. No InoDrive, no sound absorbing window option, etc.... A bit odd. Given the godawful traffic one frequently has to deal with here, I was hoping that for those boring and frustrating drives, I could let the Porsche handle the driving (at least to the same level as my 2020 Benz E-Class) The dealer said he believed what I'd get was rather less than that. Sounded like adaptive cruise control plus lane keep assistance. Any thoughts or edification ?"

If available it should be on the Services tab. Contact Porsche.
Thanks - definitely not showing in the Services tab (though it was before I took delivery of the car) - maybe they are updating the FOD Service options? Anyone else see the same thing?

Not showing up for me either in the US. A month ago, I saw Innodrive in the Connect store and ordered it. The car downloaded the data package but I’m still waiting for it to be activated (Porsche NA and my dealership don’t know how to fix it). As of today the only thing I see on the Connect store is the Intelligent Range Manager.
