Hey fellow Taycan fans! I think many of you will find this video of interest. You can click on the link at YouTube to be notified when it debuts this Friday morning. This is the first video in a series documenting and reviewing this heavily optioned 2023 Taycan 4S Cross Turismo, taking delivery at Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta and driving home 1,302 miles. It was quite the experience, and we definitely formed some opinions on certain options.

I hope you enjoy this video, and the full review to follow. Thank you for your support!

Thanks for watching and for your support! I initially ordered the Tesla charger, per your recommendation, but switched to a ChargePoint setup (photo is seen in video). I think the most important point was having a proper installation. I hired the electrician we have used for 11 years, who is a Master Electrician, and insisted that he watch the video by Sandy Munro and actually call JW Shaw in Michigan, which he did. I was made aware of that information here , in this forum, and believe a proper, more heavy-duty install should be the required minimum standard.

We just finished up at COTA and are now in a brief summer break, but will be back for weekends in October, November and December. reach out to me, and i will absolutely set it up for you. Would be great to have you out!

super nice unit and install!
Thank you @daveo4EV Couldnt have done it with the advice from you and others on this site, and the links to the video from Sandy Munro and JW Shaw. Definitely worth doing right.
