Hi all,

Bellevue Porsche has their demo Taycan available for current Porsche owners to test drive. I have had the pleasure to test drive the Taycan yesterday. I am currently editing some vids/pics and will share once done. I will do a write up here as well about my "take" on the Taycan.

FYI - for those of you who are not current Porsche owners but are on the deposit program/waitlist. Bellevue Porsche will offer, by appointment ONLY, test drives for you after Jan 1st. Until the end of 2019.. test drives are reserved for current Porsche owners only.

I remain on deposit and will execute on my 1st Taycan purchase for the June 2020 build cycle, as there will be more options for the car. My 2nd purchase, on deposit as well, will be the Cross Turismo, which is scheduled to be unveiled in Q4 2020

Interesting - are you aware of these additional options that will be available June build? Also you are the first person I've encountered that is doing the very same as I - -taking delivery of a Turbo and then looking to trade it for a GT Turbo S. Bravo!

Additional options will include standard roof vs. Panoramic, there is talk about HUD option, and a few other options. I tend to get drip info from my Porsche Rep so I dont have all info on June build cycle options available or confirmed. Either way, for a fully decked out Taycan Turbo or Turbo S, i want to make sure i have all options available to me. I plan on trading in my current Panamera Sport Turismo eHybrid for the Taycan Cross Turismo in 2021.

Good to know about the test drives.
I heard there will be a sport Turismo as well as the cross Turismo. What is the difference?

To be honest .. I don't think there will be much difference with the exception of either more or less body cladding to make the car look "rugged"

My take is that its in between 911 and Panamera in luxury, sportiness, practicality etc. Its closer to the 911 actually. I like the acceleration, steering feel and feedback etc. The seating is low which is good. No body roll is also good. It does not have as much steering feedback as 911. We can feel the weight at corners but still plenty of grip.
The design is beautiful (interior and exterior)

I have decided to buy this. I might wait for the sport Turismo though. This will be my daily and the 911 GT3 RS (in wait-list now) will be my track car.
