For those of us living in North America, depending on where you live you might be required to have a front license plate on your car.

But let's be honest a front plate does take away from the beauty of the Taycan, especially if it's right in the middle.

I'm thinking of just leaving it until a police officer notices or getting a custom bracket done. I'd be curious to hear what other people think about this.

This is my plan for my Taycan Turbo:

under Washington state law, RCW 46.16.240, a special exception exists. If the body of the car is built in a way that it is impossible for a plate to be mounted to the front of the car (like a Ferrari) then no front plate is required. If you fall into this category then you can write the Washington State Patrol and request a waiver. If approved, no front plate is required.

In order to be sold in the US, the Taycan must have a front plate mount. The state of Washington knows this and wont fall for your obvious scam.

An MP4-12C owner I know uses a hideaway plate system, it comes with a remote and is completely motorized.

Yeah I'm a bit confused about how applying for an exemption is a scam.
One interpretation is that you'd be claiming something that is false. It absolutely is possible to have a front plate attached to the Taycan. I can show you the bag of front plate mounting parts my dealer handed me. You'd be making a false claim. Hence: Scam.

I'm not judging. I hate front plates. I'm just providing interpretation services. :)

First, our dealer here in Illinois is just getting the first car this weekend, maybe. But,Chicago will give you a ticket the minute they see a car without a front plate. I have a plate on my Panamera Hybrid but I don’t drive my 911 into the city so I have no
Plate on that. If I like the Taycan and buy one, I will put on a front plate as it will be a daily driver and will be taken into city. It’s just a car.....

Have multiple Pcars...........none have front plate mount, holes, or anything....delivery taken that way..
I live in WI.........rarely unforced here.
Back when it was I had a plate mount for the tow-hook, so I then had something to drive to the State Patrol to get the 'boxed checked'. That was years ago.

Thanks. The Euro plate seems to ‘fit’ pretty well as it is long and slender. US a bit more chunky. Wonder if we can mount closer to air intake.

I have this issue with a few cars where it would spoil the aerodynamics (I swear officer!) and/or will look terrible. Where I am if the police pull me over its a $90 fine without points. I think over multiple years I have paid this fine two times total. Your mileage may vary.
