Software issues

Be wise!!! Make sure you speak with actual Taycan owners before you buy. This is the inaugural year and there’s been nothing but problems. My car has been in the service garage almost 1/2 of the time I’ve owned it. SOFTWARE issues is all I hear when I inquire as I continue to make my monthly payments without having my car. My brakes failed because of a software issue, my charger overheated because of the “major” software issue and my car slammed I’m the brakes on its own because the sensor “thought” it saw on oncoming vehicle. This has been a resentful and extremely disappointing purchase. If you’ve ever had your car broken into, you’ll understand the feeling on complete violation of personal property and space! This is exactly how I feel about this vehicle even if they “fix” it and return it to me. Porsche has responded to me with “we’re looking into this matter and will reach out shortly”... as I am without a $175,000.00 Taycan Turbo which I just bought 5 months ago and is sitting at the dealership.

I’ve had my Taycan for over a month and continue to be impressed with almost every aspect of the car. The performance is phenomenal and the instant torque is completely addictive, especially at speed. The design is absolutely stunning and it’s truly one of those cars where the pictures don’t do it justice — there’s so many little details that the car really deserves to be seen up close. Like the 911, the Taycan is almost all compound curves that flow beautifully around the car. Interior fit and finish is definitely top-of-the-line. If you’re a fan of physical buttons the all digital control surfaces will take some getting used to. The Porsche Communications Management (PCM) system on the Taycan is brand-new and is still a work-in-progress — the system still has some glitches and performance issues. From a range perspective, I’ve been more that impressed only because the EPA ratings were so low. I’ve regularly traveled 30-40% further than what the sticker says. You can easily get 270 miles on a full charge (I’m on 20” Turbo Aero wheels with all-season Continental tires) and charging at home has been a revelation. That said, I’m charging my car about once-a-week, and even then the car is usually around 35% state of charge (SoC). Of course, depending on your situation with your commute and COVID-19, you might not be driving much, so you may need to charge even less. Overall, it’s a Porsche: beautiful, extraordinarily solid and well-built, fast, and pricey.

Worst software and car support

From day 1 the software on the car has failed to work properly. Porsche technicians and dealers are clueless regarding how to remedy the OTA, control module malfunctions. Porsche North America has very poor support. The car itself drives and handles great but the PCM and software features are a continuous problem. When the software and interface do not come close to the reliability and features of an IPAD I would not recommend buying this car.

main battery now needs replacement

I’ve had my Taycan turbo for 12 months. Worse car ownership ever. Now needs main battery replacement. They can’t give me an ETA for delivery of the part. Continuous software issues, rattles, error messages. Porsche support awful. Continue to ship new cars knowing there are major faults. Check current owners many having similar issues

Great handling and interior; tech needs work

Climate change compelled me to sell my beloved e90 M3 and get a Taycan. I've been very happy with it in my first year, with several family roadtrips with young children in the rear view mirror. It's not a sports car, but the Taycan has fantastic handling, a stellar interior, and comfortably accommodates two car seats for a family of four. It's lovely to drive around the city and highways. Highway driving feels like floating through the countryside in a silent bubble. The normal mode soaks up the bumps well, even in the broken streets of Boston, and the sport mode crispens the ride considerably and makes it fun on canyon and mountain roads. In the summer, I'm getting as much as 260-280 miles of range on a single charge. In the winter, it's more like 200. Charging at level 3 Electrify America systems has made road trips very easy. The car is mostly charged in about 20-30 minutes if you can find the 300 level charger. The Porsche app is garbage, though, so sometimes you have to pay out of pocket even with the "free" charging for the first 3 years. At home, we have a chargepoint, which has been fantastic and I can charge it to about half full at work for $1. In total I'd say that I pay about $30 a month for electricity and that's it on top of car payments. The only real downsides of the car are the infotainment system, which always has trouble connecting to my phone, and the ridiculous pricing that Porsche uses. I've given up on using the Porsche technology system with bluetooth and just use apple car play, but even connecting to my phone can take up to 5 minutes. It usually takes about a minute or two. Not great for a car starting at around $100K. My wife's five year old 3 series has better technology. The other aggravating issue is that Porsche does not include as standard features that are installed in every $50K Honda or Kia. A heads up display or folding mirrors. Another minor peeve is that the trunk makes the most annoying sound ever when it's opening or closing. Totally unnecessary. In short, it's a fantastic car if you love cars. My main regret about the car is not getting it in a more fun color. If you don't love cars, then I'd save money and get something else.
