I see we are back on the depreciation topic which I find distracts from the qualities of the car. I am not seeing the same depreciation in Canada. The lowest I se on Auto Trader
Just checked how much my cars worth with WBAC as I fancy a change back to petrol and was offered £28,355. Car is a 2020 has around £30k in extras and 14,400 miles on the clock. Luckily it’s on pcp and GFV is over £50000 so looks like I will have to wait until I can hand it back. Has any one tried selling one recently?

I see we are back on the Topic of depreciation, which I finds detracts from the qualities of the vehicle. The low price that I see in Canada is $104k for a 2020 4S, with 35,000kM., that appears to be reasonable depreciation. Let’s just enjoy our drive and stop bringing our vehicles down.

I wouldn’t sweat it. We buy any car; have to offer to buy any car so they low ball on models they don’t want. We all know the very attractive company car three / four year deals are ending and therefore lots are available.

I can assure you this will correct itself. The new Taycan is more expensive and the company benefits are not the same these days. So less will be sold…. Supply will drop and used prices will rise.

It’s the same as any market. Ride the storm guys; ride the storm.

I have little interest in residuals as I don't intend to sell the car. But...

I wonder if the ZEV mandate is screwing things more in the UK - ZEV mandate: 22% of new cars must be electric this year | What Car?

...and is likely to continue doing so.

There's no question that the car is fantastic. However, unexpectedly high depreciation does sully the ownership experience and is nothing like what I (or, it seems, many others) have experienced with the marque in the past.
The forum is for sharing knowledge and views about all aspects of ownership; cost for many of us is a key factor.

If you find the topic tedious or it doesn't interest you, there's no obligation to follow, or contribute to, the thread...
I find it neither tedious or uninteresting. Actually, I believe all this discussion about declining values is damaging to all Taycan drivers.

Being active in the car-trade we got offered brand new gen 2 rwd taycans, well specced, with a 35% discount compared to msrp.
Demand must be low at the moment, even for new ones.

It is expensive to own from new but cheap to keep it for a while. I keep good car for long unless it is a problematic one. My advise is do not buy a luxury car if you can't afford this type of depreciation.

I was the same, a car with an 80+K price tag last August only worth 28K according to WBAC !
Well, I bought 3 years warranty and breakdown starting from the middle of this month when the existing one expires! I,ll have a look at its worth in three years time! where would you get a car like a Taycan for 28K !!

(A) It is likely similar (when viewed over similar time frames) to depreciation curves for Porsche's non-sports car models (i.e., Panamera, Cayenne, etc.). What happens with the 911, the GT cars or the 718s isn't relevant.
(B) The depreciation curve here has a number of important considerations in play, but maybe not the one's you think. The depreciation curve for these vehicles was artificially flat for the first 3 years of manufacture because demand outstripped supply owing to it being a new model (with no used market) and significant global supply chain issues. When those supply issues cleared up, depreciation quickly caught up to (and in some sense exceeded) where it would have naturally been and then some. Plus lease terms came up, used models came online and the market was further flooded, right as the new production hiccups/supply chain issues cleared. Plus you have new technology - everyone who wanted an EV got one... everyone who wanted an EV now has one. The early adopter demand has been met and then exceeded AND you have the .2 models announced with material improvements. So, if you want to know what happened - that's it. But not sure we need 50 more threads on the subject.

Taycan prices are definitely turning heads lately! It seems like young people are really getting into the electric car game, and the Taycan's sleek design and eco-friendly credentials are catching their attention.
