Ok your use case and context is very similar to mine. I currently have a Model Y Performance and was worried about the Porsche being “slower”. I had a RWD for a weekend and fell in love with the preciseness and experience, and decided to jump ship. I trust that the reduction in standstill performance will be remedied by the overall experience. I should get mine in Jan.I take delivery in the next week or so. It's sitting at the port in Houston.
One reason I felt comfortable making the switch, was I had a RWD (without the PB+) loaner for about a week, which I used for 100% of my daily routine. Although it wasn't nearly as fast straight line, it still had plenty of passing speed, which I value more, and was still a blast to drive.
Considering the CT4 with it's standard PB+ is faster than the RWD Taycan, I knew I would be fine making the jump. I really love the 4S, but I already had a Performance Tesla before it and was over the straight line acceleration, and the handling is really what I love about Porsche. Although I could have gotten a CT4S, I had a hard time justifying the extra cost for a few tenths of speed that I already knew from owning a 4S I hardly needed.
