I regret having to write this in English and not in Italian, sadly I think that in my broken English the nuances of what I mean might be lost..... Anyway:

- Even if you look at this car a lot of times, every time you look at it you see something you haven't seen before.
- Even if you drive this car every day, each time you drive it it gives you back some feeling that you hadn't perceived the previous time.
- This car should be a mortification of physics and instead it is the apotheosis of physics.
- This car should be aseptic but it's the one with the most "beating heart" I've ever had.
- This car is abosolutely beautiful when it is very clean, it is absolutely beautiful when it is very dirty.

This car is imperfect, I love it for that too.

P.S. I just did a 1,400km trip in Italy (South of Rome to Milan and back) and I survived.:)

You have perfectly captured the essence of Porsche!

A volte lo dimentichiamo. Niente è perfetto. Goditi le cose per quello che sono, invece di quello che non sono o potrebbero essere. Congratulazioni! Non dimenticare di condividere le foto😛

I’m sure that’s your heart beating when you look back at your car.

Mama Mia, I agree! The Taycan is indeed a work of art, one that is really, really fun to drive.

Some sour notes:

- Counter-intuitive forward/rear control lever, for me "above" it makes you think more easily "forward" and vice versa for "below", but instead it is the opposite.
- Images provided by the rear camera are unrealistic, worse than the others had so far.
- Brake pedal with unnatural behavior under braking - partial release - new braking situations.
- Proximity sensors are not very progressive compared to those of other brands.
- Automatic high beams come on too seldom for my taste.
- I don't know why, but it must be me, every time I look for something in the user manual I don't find exactly what I'm looking for but a thousand of other similar things.
- I would like more choice and flexibility in the combinations of the data that can be shown in the three quadrants of the main screen.
- The Porsche navigator is too easily out of whack when it has to quickly manage information about charging stations.
- Cover of the compartment between the two front seats does not stand up by itself, but everyone already knows that. :)

Bellissima , complimenti!

Io guido una ST GTS da 1 mese e condivido i tuoi punti citati ;)
Posso chiederti quanto consuma in autostrada la tua viaggiando a 130kmh?
