Got my Neptune CT4s last week, have to say I’m really pleased with the color. I was very nervous before getting it. Will try to grab a few more scenic pics, but here are some from the driveway.

Car was delivered with electric steering column, and one key. Also the wireless charging seems like it’s not working, but not sure if it’s missing a chip or not. Also have had a few random interior alarms go off, but overall very pleased with the car.

Did it get delivered with clear side markers (front wheel arch blinker) or did you swap it after delivery? I thought all US deliveries come with yellow/orange ones.

My dealer actually swaps them on all the cars that come in because they think it looks so much better. I agree and I would have done it myself if they didn't.

Agreed. That's nice of them - I had to purchase and install my own! Granted, it was much easier than I anticipated - but a nice gesture by the dealer.

Do yours align properly, I was looking at them and they seem a little off. Not sure if this is normal?

I see that you have the Offroad Package trim... I would be most appreciative if you could measure the ground clearance at the several different lift levels (from lowest to highest) and post them here (i.e., picking one or two points, like just in front of and just behind one of the front wheels, for consistency). There's been some question and ambiguity about the numbers floated around by Porsche.
here’s what I have for the “lowest” suspension level (as measured be

and in front of front tire.

Mine do. I have a sneaking suspicion that your dealer installed the sedan side markers. The CT side markers are different and have a distinct part number.

i had that suspicion as well.. I asked my sales guy if they had the CT ones and he was like yeah, I said they’re different are you sure and he sent me a thumbs up. But I think you’re right.

well it’s something that probably no one else will notice, I didn’t even notice till I took a close look at everything today… but now it will annoy me to no end!

I hear you. My OCD would drive me nuts over such a rather insignificant thing which almost nobody else would notice. I would look on the bright side though, you got those side markers for free from the dealer, so if you replace them, it would be the same cost as if they just delivered you the orange ones. While you wait for the correct ones, think of these are still better looking than the orange ones.

PS> I don't have a Taycan yet (still awaiting an allocation), I don't spend much on cosmetic options (my $178K build includes $25,150 in options out of which exactly $1,170 are cosmetic, i.e. looks only - interior leather and wheels) but I already picked up the CT side markers, as they would trigger my OCD. I'm thinking about adding additional reflectors to the plastic wheel arches to replace the functionality I am losing by replacing the side markers, but haven't decided yet if it's necessary since my Taycan will be Carrera metallic white so the entire car should be reflective at night.

Where did you get the clear CT side markers? I’m waiting for mine as well, but I def want to switch that out

Beautiful car! The wireless charging is useless so you’re not missing much

Love it! Thoughts on the Offroad Design Package? Do you think it was worth the cost? You like the look?

I am on the fence.

I really like the look, and think it completes the plastic wheel fenders. Is it worth $2k? No. Would I order it again, yes.

Car looks great. Wife is finalizing her config for her CT4, locks tomorrow. We were able to go see a CT4 with the off road package and we both walked away saying no. Because of the fins/lips, figure winter muck would fill up. Does it seem like they capture dirt?

A valid concern... I live in South Carolina, so I don't deal with the winter stuff. Haven't done any "offroading" yet to really know, but doubt I ever will so.... for my purposes a simple pressure washing in the wash process cleans all that stuff out.
