    Contacted my local Porsche dealer (Porsche Bellevue) last month to put a deposit down, they told me that I was added to their list but they were not taking a deposit at this time. Not sure if that is because they already filled all of their 2020 allocations or if they were doing things a bit differently. I'm thinking i'll be getting a 2021 allocation as I'm late to the game and the demand for electric cars in the Seattle area is high

    Hate to be a kill joy especially on a Taycan site but for a FIRST Porsche there are a plethora of other models I would try first! I have owned many Porsches and liked them all for different reasons. I would expect the Taycan to be the least “Porsche” like vehicle and I am including both Cayennes and Panameras in that group.
    For a first Porsche experience I would suggest trying a 911 or Boxster/Cayman which are sports cars. I am going to guess the Taycan will handle similarly to my Panamera Turbo S only more power as I plan on going for the top trim model.

    I have placed a 2'500 CHF deposit and according my local dealer there is no "ranking" in the reservation list. I clear that up at the Geneva motor show next week;)

    Dear Porsche enthusiasts.
    I am writing my thesis at the University of Mannheim, about the electric automobile industry, with focus on the Taycan as a pioneer for Porsche. The goal is to identify changes in consumer behaviour and consumer needs, and how Porsche can adapt their strategies to meet the needs of their customers. In my paper I want to compare the Norwegian and the German car-market, and because of that it is essential for me to get people living in Germany to respond to this survey. Getting sufficient replies on the following survey is crucial in order for me to be able to provide good strategic solutions for Porsche.
    I would really appreciate if you could use 4 minutes to finish this survey. (All answers are anonymous)

    Thank you so much for your help in advance!

    Just put down a deposit yesterday. I'm #60 on my dealer's list, but the dealer also said they usually get a 30% fallout rate from preorders.

    But with this car, it might be higher since we don't know how it will look, how it will drive, what the final specs are, what price it will be ...

    That said, I can't wait for September, to be able to see it and get the actual specs / price!

    I like the car, have a deposit down, #27, but I’m not sure. Porsche has changed the price point twice. It was originally to be midway between Cayenne and Panamera. Now they say it will mirror Panamera. My best guess: Midrange is S will start @90 k. “ Turbo” @125 k plus the inevitable add one of 20-30 k on average from my personal experience.
