    How many years is Tesla ahead

    tesla's advantages will be eroded by all the newcomers to the EV game. the taycan blows the tesla away in fit, finish and interior luxury but tesla beats it on range and 0-60, which is a specious measure. two things tesla does better than others is their tech and the supercharger network. the...

    Mechanic recommendations (Augusta, GA)

    assuming that you are talking about a tesla just be certain that whomever you choose knows how to lift the car properly, failure to do so can result in severe damages to the battery pack. you might be better off waiting for your service center.

    Think I’m gonna buy a Taycan

    1. the car is a lease 2. what would I drive is the car market is so crazy? 3. it isn't about happiness, it is about a car that is quite costly and is not performing properly, in fact it is failing in many different ways.

    Think I’m gonna buy a Taycan

    there were 3 major updates that required the car to visit the shop for sometimes days at a time, the first one fixed the problem with the 12v battery being drained, the second addresses the random loss of propulsion some people had and sparked an national recall from NHTSA and the third...

    Think I’m gonna buy a Taycan

    in addition to my complaints about the car here's another issue, on a recent road trip, using the EA network was a disaster. two complete fail to charge forcing me to waste 1.5 hours on a 50kw charger. Porsche is tarnishing their brand with their very buggy car and the unreliable charging makes...

    Aggravating EV Journalism - public EV charging

    your comments are fairly valid but now that I drive a taycan and rely on the EA network and other networks I can state that the charging situation is poor at best. in 9 years of driving teslas across the US I may have encountered slow superchargers, crowded superchargers but I've always been...

    Anyone wondering about the "Coming Soon" Supercharger Stations in Florida?

    at port st lucie there is a tesla super charger, why would you pass that and use the EA charger? same for ft pierce, it isn't that far from the pt st lucie charger. have you ever visited ft pierce? IMHO it isn't a place that I'd care to spend much time in.

    Sound dampening for sharp/abrasive motor sounds?

    the best you could do is to try to sound proof the areas where the drives are located but I don't think that you will be able to accomplish a full deadening of the sounds from the motors

    Think I’m gonna buy a Taycan

    in what aspect? plaid certainly is the better car if you want to race at red lights, the taycan is better if you want to stop that bullet. the tesla is has far better tech but the taycan is superior in overall driving.
  14. mk677

    Think I’m gonna buy a Taycan

    agreed, the driving as certainly far superior to the tesla but the software glitches, cars needing to go in for days for software updates, features not working are all big issues with the taycan. If I cannot depend on car being able to charge while on an extended road trip how great the...

    Think I’m gonna buy a Taycan

    I would be wary of the taycan at this point. the cars are having a lot of software related issues and porsche has not trained enough staff at the dealerships to deal with all the issues. service waits are out to about 4-6 weeks for the latest software update that addresses the recent recall. the...

    Opening up the Supercharger Network to non-Teslas

    I never said that summons never happened. you apparently are unaware of elon's showing how he could stand in front of a store and retrieve the car from a parking place. guess what, that never came to be. did you pay for FSD? how's that working out for you? I a very aware of how summons works...

    Opening up the Supercharger Network to non-Teslas

    are you sure about that? tesla's sold in the EU are equipped with a CCS receiver, the superchargers use the standard CCS plugs. why would tesla sell an adaptor in the EU for a US spec plug? it makes little sense
  23. mk677

    Opening up the Supercharger Network to non-Teslas

    that may work for tesla in the EU where they use the standard CCS plug but here in the US it isn't as simple as a software tweak to allow non teslas to use the tesla chargers. tesla uses a proprietary plug here in the US and allowing non teslas to use their system requires a massive hardware...

    Opening up the Supercharger Network to non-Teslas

    are you still waiting for the summons to bring the car to you in a parking lot? the economics of retrofitting the chargers and the cars just don't work. you seem to be ignoring that tesla uses a unique plug for their cars

    Think I’m gonna buy a Taycan

    this is by design, unlike a tesla the car will coast, applying the brakes is where the regen kicks in, the brakes themselves are only to bring the car to a stop. it is a different approach, it took me awhile to not miss the tesla's regen but now I know how to manually kick it in when needed...

    Opening up the Supercharger Network to non-Teslas

    don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen. do you realize that the tesla chargers in the US use a proprietary plug unique to tesla? the expense of converting the chargers alone precludes this from ever happening

    not quite right, while every taycan has been recalled, the actual issue has affected a tiny number of cars and there is no stop sale in place

    Begging At Charging Stations?

    common courtesy? what about the courtesy offered by the vagrant who intrudes on people? some people could be quite intimidated by such an intrusion. one time I was in a city here and when I parked the car I couldn't get from my driver's seat to the parking meter without being accosted by a...

    Porsche Taycan

    that's great, now you as an unsupported owner take your taycan to a track and put it though it's paces. unless you trailer it you are not getting home. aside from the charging concerns the car is just too big and heavy for track days. the taycan is not the porsche that is a good choice for a...

    Enforcement of no parking to block the Superchargers.

    tell the cop it is state statute and it certainly is his job to enforce state statutes.

    Anyone wondering about the "Coming Soon" Supercharger Stations in Florida?

    if you live 2 minutes away why do you need to use the supercharger? constant supercharging is not the best for battery health.
