Suspension sure seems high.

cpoarchy,
In the TPMS menu you can tell the car what size wheels it has installed. Piece of cake.

TPMS....Tire Pressure Monitoring System?..........yep I get that as I change to winter fitments on my cars in the fall and the system asks what I've done, and 'learns' in 1st few miles.
Not to confuse this w/my original question..........that the 'Normal', 'Low', 'Lowest' settings are there and select-able by me......so that I do not have to drive with the Off-road agrarian ride height that the second picture shows.
Correct?

This snippet from the Taycan owner's manual on ride height selection:

Porsche Active Suspension
Management (PASM)
General Safety Instructions
Responding to warning symbols
Always heed any warning and information messages
displayed in the vehicle.
> Please see chapter "Warning and information
messages" on page 263.
Operating principle
PASM is a system that actively adjusts the chassis
dynamics. Your vehicle may be fitted with one of the
following equipment configurations:
– PASM with steel suspension
– PASM with switchable air suspension and a
height control system
The variable chassis system configures a damping
force suitable for each individual wheel.
Three different chassis setups can be selected:
– Normal: comfortable chassis setting
– Sport: sporty setting
– Sport Plus: distinctly sporty setting, such as for
use on racetracks.
PASM with switchable air suspension and a
height control system
The height control system with air suspension automatically
compensates for load changes and maintains
a constant ride height. The following chassis
heights are available:
Medium
– Standard level in the “Normal“ and “Sport“ chassis
settings
– Can be selected manually with the “Sport Plus“
chassis setting
Lift
– Increases the ground clearance by approx.
0.8 in. (20 mm) compared to the “Medium“
height.
– Can be selected up to a speed of approx.
20 mph (30 km/h) and is deselected automatically
at higher speeds.
– Used for driving over obstacles.
Lowered
– Decreases the ground clearance by approx.
0.4 in. (10 mm) compared to the “Medium“ level.
– Can be selected manually.
Low
– Decreases the ground clearance by approx.
0.87 in. (22 mm) compared to the “Medium“
height.
– Used for sporty driving.
– Can be selected manually.
– Selected automatically when the “Sport Plus“
chassis setting or RANGE driving mode is
activated.
If RANGE driving mode is activated, a range-optimized
chassis setting and low height are selected.
The option of selecting the chassis setting is disabled
in RANGE driving mode.

I plan on programming the user programmable control button with the sequence to lift the suspension. I scraped the demo car entering a driveway apron

The Taycans all are transported in an extended lift position, for obvious (ramp clearance) reasons. There is a whole "unlocking" process that is done in service that releases the lifted position, includes unlocking the 30mph limit on the car factory set for transport. This is to prevent the transport drivers loading and unloading the ships from speeding. True on all Porsches shipped to the States.
The extended lift position is not available to drivers within the car.
I like it set "low" and drive it that way all the time.
Just turned 1K miles the other day. Incredible car!!

The tires for 21" rims will be lower profile making the outside diameter of the tires the same. No problem for the suspension.
Be sure to order the "no cost option" 25 ft cable! Trust me, you won't regret it.

I guess I don't need to program the user button, just have to hit the shock absorber symbol on right side of instrument cluster to raise ride height.
