    I'm from Toronto, currently driving a 2018 Panamera Turbo ST and thinking to move on to Taycan on its second year into production.
    I have lots of questions to ask and to gain information on this new beast.

    Put my deposit down a few days ago. Currently drive a Tesla Model S P85D. Looking forward to see how the Taycan is going to raise the bar with EV's.

    Hi guys!

    I live in Oslo, Norway. Our country is the #1 country when it comes to electric cars. And there's a reason for it! :D

    Apart from Denmark we have the highest taxes on cars on the planet. But for electric cars there's NO TAX. Not even VAT! So they are flooding the streets here!

    My dream car is a Panamera Sport Turismo but it costs as much as a house up here. However the electrified version is within reach - AND I must own a Porsche once in my life! :D Just hoping they will offer a 5 seat Sport Turismo version of the Taycan as I have 3 kids...

    Welcome to the site! And wow I knew that Norway was very EV friendly but had no idea that your country was that aggressive in promoting electric vehicles. Lucky you, wish I wasn't going to be taxed on my Taycan!

    Thx Series7!

    I commute by bike which is by far more climate friendly than EVs. But I paid 25% VAT on that :D

    We’re well past 200.000 EVs here. Population is 5 mill. Sweden OTOH has less than 1000 EVs.

    Black Friday sale every day on EVs does make a difference! :D

    New to the forum. Drive a Tesla P85 and thinking I’ll put down a deposit.

    I like that the best guesses are that Taycan will be shorter than the S. I’ll miss the interior simplicity but I want a better driving car.

    I am a 'Porschephile' and placed a deposit for a Taycan, last year. There is, of course, a little bit of concern when buying the first of a completely new line. Looking forward to learning from the collective knowledge of aficionados in this group!
