I haven’t received my car yet, but when I gave my deposit I took three cans of Diet Coke, five bags of pretzels, and filled my pockets with enough candy for any trick or treaters that might show up at Halloween. Oh, I forgot I took a variety of tea bags too.
Funny thing is, I have not yet actually set foot inside my Porsche dealer. I test drove the car with the person who I ran into in the parking lot (in February - before COVID). I did all my purchasing paperwork via email/DropBox. During the time I waited for the car, my original salesperson and the salesperson who replaced him both left my Porsche dealer. I met the (now third) salesperson in the parking lot in September and left with the car that day. He came to my house a few days later to show me features. Now I kind of wish I had gone in and retrieved some goodies!

Why do I feel scammed not getting anything like this in the mail yet? :mad:
It is not just you! I only got goodies at the launch event (glass water jug and the white paperweight). I have had nothing sent to me personally. I now wish I loaded up on snacks too!!

Today I am happily reminiscing about the many (pre-COVID-19) meals eaten at car dealerships over the years. One time I happened upon the launch event for the Bentley Flying Spur and enjoyed a catered lunch and a test drive.

When I test drove and ordered the Taycan, I wore a Porsche golf shirt that I was gifted when I bought my last Porsche in 2003. I needed to remind them that I do buy cars occasionally and I like free clothing.

I received an unexpected package from Porsche North America today. It was a pleasant surprise, containing a book The Porsche Principle, a Taycan pamphlet, a Taycan Pen and an owners card with phone numbers on the reverse:

Has anyone else received this?
Yep, I got mine yesterday. Pretty neat, although I have a minor nit. They sent a very nice pen, but the pen is too fat to be held by the glove box pen holder. I’d like to keep the pen in the car, so it will have to float with the loose junk in the container under the center console lid.

Don't worry, I'm sure @evanevery is working on a 3D-printed solution as I type this :)

Ha! If only it was worth the effort!

(I wish Porsche was spending more time fixing their crappy software and less time re-bundling sales junk for us... :( )

Haven’t received an exactly similar gift like you, after my Taycan purchase. Though I got a Porsche wine cooler, including a bottle with some nice bubbles inside ;) Together with the super service and great follow up from my dealer at Porsche Son in Norway, I’m as happy as one can be !!

I received the same gift too. I have not received the USB charger, I assume it's one of the other?
