Hi All,

With all the production delays (6-12 mos) for allocation orders, should I just wait for the 2024 Taycan? Debating if I should wait. Would love to hear your suggestions.

Thanks!

If you order now you will likely only get MY24. Model change is around July time.

Don't expect major differences or enhancements from MY23.

I have a friend from high-school

When the Intel 286 processor came out, he said he would wait for the 386. When the 386 came out, he said the 486 was just around the corner. When the 486 came out, he waited a bit for our reviews and then learned a new super processor would come out soon. He, once again, waited until the gen 1 Pentium came out.

He FINALLY committed and bought the Pentium. He was super happy until a couple of months later it was announced that the Pentium had a floating number bug and that Intel would release some "software" patches.

Bottom line, he spent 5 years without a PC to get a broken one while the rest of us, albeit broke (lol), were discovering the marvels of technology.

He never went the IT route either. I guess he didn't like computers.

The only things worth waiting for IMHO would be a much lighter battery with much longer range, and the full chalk interior as is found on the Panamera. Doubt you will see either anytime soon, so order now and enjoy.

Yep, wait for the facelift at this point. That is what I am doing. The facelift should be pretty significant for MY2024.

MY24 has already been announced and prices published. Theres no "facelift." Facelift will come in 2024 for MY25.
I don‘T think it has. Where are you seeing this? SOP for MY2024 facelift is expected end of this year.

The massive porsche price increases that happened a couple weeks ago are all for MY24 vehicles. You can look on the configurator, there are absolutely zero changes for new build. MY24 vehicles will start production this summer (or winter for you) June/July. The 992.1 was released the same time as the Taycan and that refresh hasn't even launched yet. Makes zero sense the Taycan is getting a refresh after only 3 years.

Facelift 2024MY Taycan will arrive summer 2024 for delivery in 2025 (says Porsche head office) | TaycanForum -- Porsche Taycan Owners, News, Discussions, Forums

If porsche announces a facelift at the end of this year, it wont be for MY24 as that model will already start shipping in august. It will be for MY25.

I’ve been told by my dealer to expect a facelift with details in July. What you‘re referring to is some rolling price increases across the range, not tied to MY necessarily. And they did not apply to NZ either.

The fact there were zero changes tell me this is not the MY2024 spec at all.

Put it this way, if they don’t refresh some aspects of the Taycan, expect sales to continue to fall, not just as a result of “supply chain shortages” or quality issues. It will be upstaged by the Macan in many areas - this will not be acceptable to buyers.

There are no more available allocations for MY23, your dealer can only place an order with an allocation and the next batch of allocations will be MY24. The price increase for NZ may not get published till July (highly unlikely) and they may even leak some “spy” shots of the MY25 refresh. Again, NZ may be on some odd MY schedule but in North America and Europe the initial MY24 prices have already dropped and there is no refresh.

I don't know about the full chalk interior. It's too much in my opinion.

The current black/chalk is perfect and easy on the eyes.

I have the Chalk/Blue leather interior on the Cayenne and that has perfect balance vs. the Chalk/Black in the Taycan as in too much black. You can look at the configurator of the Cayenne and see for yourself, although this is old news now, new Cayenne is following all design from the Taycan retaining some toggle switches, so I would say, that balance is no longer available, but I will enjoy it on our 2020 Cayenne as long as we can.

Well time will tell, but if there is no facelift I won’t buy. The facelift has been in testing for a while, we’re seeing the Cayenne facelift with dramatically faster and improved infotainment. Checking with my dealer and the facelift is still expected by the end of this calendar year.

They’ll need to include the improved infotainment from the Macan, and updated drivetrain and battery efficiency or the Taycan will stand out as a bad performer. Porsche know this and the timing of the facelift before the Macan has it‘s big launch is no accident. The cosmetic changes will be minor, I agree, but that is not the big story with the facelift we expect to see.

Again, time will tell, but if they don’t do the facelift later this year sales will drop off a cliff as people see how poorly the Taycan compares to the Macan.

I understand you might not want to see a facelift if you’ve recently purchased, or have a Taycan on the way, but that’s not how Porsche work — they want to sell cars and the EV space moves faster than the old combustion world.

Sorry, but a lot of this doesn’t make sense. Porsche has no interest to favor Taycan sales over the Macan’s - if anything, the games with restricting allocations and price increases point towards pushing the former to be a more exclusive model, whereas the latter is and remains the brand’s bestseller.

Put differently: the success of the Macan is far more important, as a high volume seller. Timing the Taycan facelift to preempt the launch the (already late) Macan is nonsensical, and would have a double impact: a) they’re struggling to complete and deliver Taycans (a 30k unit/year model) so more demand for it is unwanted pressure, and b) the 60-80k unit/year Macan needs all the splash/attention as it goes full BEV so as not to drop too many sales.
