Well, comparing my lock in price and today's MRSP, it's 10k more.

On the other hand, Taycan’s aren't elegible for the EV benefit (I think it should be called tesla benefit because it conveniently is set at €55K price limit (€1k above model 3 old price here) meaning I still lost €3.5K in benefits.

Yet another automotive site saying the same thing as I have been told: “Expect to see this updated Taycan at the end of the year, with sales starting at the beginning of 2024.” https://www.carwow.co.uk/porsche/news/6680/new-porsche-models-coming-soon

I know many refuse to believe it, but I’m just reporting the same that has been on many other sites. This story 4 is days old.

This thread reminds of the feedback from owners when the RS3 facelift was rumoured a few years ago, some very vocal defensive owners who just flat out refused to entertain the possibility, or the timing, or the magnitude of the changes. Some comments bordered on nasty. The fact was the info I had found played out to be 100% correct. I’m not saying this will be the case, but the attitude of a few is far from open minded given the reports, spy shots, testing we’re seeing, etc.

Too bad the kiwi won’t believe that lol
Well we have had no price rises here yet, that may come I guess. Some specs have changed, like a reduction in colour availability, probably something that happens before a big facelift announcement where exciting new colours will be announced.

Might "sales starting at the beginning of 2024" result in customer orders being delivered from Q3 2024?
Only if Porsche want mass cancelations of orders planned to be delivered between the send of 2023 and Q3 2024! 😊 So yeah, I doubt it. I would expect it to be like the Cayenne facelift, very little time between announcment and production because of that very issue.

The Cayenne facelift isn't getting delivered before Q3 though (also stated by Carwow).

Correct, We’re a month into Q2 now, Q3 starts in July, when deliveries begin, thats approx 3 months (max) from reveal.

My underlying point was that the customer-ordered facelift Cayennes will be MY24s. (Whatever, I'm curious about the Taycan facelift though it's not relevent to me keeping my MY22 for many more years.)

I don’t understand why Porsche would facelift the car anytime soon when they still can’t keep up with existing demand.

They won't. Expectation is MY25 in best case scenario.

We’re not vocal about anything, mate. You made up a story and substantiated it with speculation from your sales person, and with a story published a week after your initial post.

Yeah, we’ve seen the spy shots (read the threads posted here around that time), and the timeline would have fit under normal circumstances.

The title of the thread is “should I wait for the 2024 Taycan” and the answer was a unanimous “no” - it’s already here.

I remember Rowan Atkinson, Mr Bean fame and Aston Martin fan once saying he thought the best time to buy a car was 2-3 years after its started production to allow all the problems to be ironed out, then sell just before the next iteration (Mk 2 NOT facelift). I agree, and waiting for Mk 2 is sensible, waiting for a facelift is not.

I think there is no point speculating about the facelift. Firstly absolutely no-one - and probably not even Porsche - knows the exact date until many factors are taken into account including software, parts etc. Secondly, how much does it actually matter? I bought an S class some years ago used and a facelift came out which didn’t look as good to my eyes. Its the same with this probable Taycan Facelift, it doesn’t look as good front end.

I got my new Taycan Turbo 4 weeks ago. I call it "sex on wheels". I ordered it knowing full well there was going to be a facelift around now. Of course I would rather have the latest model, but I don’t care anymore, the car is brilliant and makes me smile every time I so much as look at it. Why wait?
