Porsche will offer you an option to have the "PORSCHE" badge behind the glass be illuminated .. when the option is available is TBD as well as the how much.. Will address the flaps/range data/ range mode

Just want to hear your evaluation of the ride of the Taycan vs. the Tesla S long range? If you have never driven a newer Tesla, please forgive me for asking. Although I have ordered a Taycan 4S for delivery in June or so, I am still wondering why with the range as it is compared to my Tesla P100d and the quicker acceleration of the Tesla. But I have had several Porsche's through my life and somehow am still attracted. Any news would help. Have fun!

Previous owner of a Tesla Model S 85D & 100D here. No need to apologize for a question asked. I gave up my Porsche for Tesla and I am switching back to Porsche. I like driving EV. Jun builds will have more options available to them, so in my opinion you kinda lucked out as you will have more options to customize your 4S in that cycle. I am waiting until Jun 2020 build cycle to execute my Turbo or Turbo S ( havent decided yet/ flip flopping). Ultimately, all trim levels will have plenty of power in them to be that Porsche with its "soul electrified". I will have a chance to test drive a 4S once the dealer has one for demo. I can tell you this from my past 2 test drive in the Taycan, will post my vids soon + my write-up, range mode + heated+ massage seats will be your friend. Your foot matters when it comes to range. The range in the Taycan, imo and from having driven a Taycan Turbo is somewhat conservative. There are a few resources on Youtube that can give you a better understanding on why a Taycan is faster than a Tesla off-the-line and past 100mph .. yet they are all on whiteboard and math equations, all the Youtubers have not driven a Taycan yet, so take it a grain of salt with their assumptions.

How competent or annoying is the Innodrive feature? I fear it is too geo-specific with large areas of US not covered in enough detail to be helpful. My pessimistic view of this feature is driven by the underwhelming job Porsche does updating the PCM NAV databases ( ignoring road updates but adding points of interest ).

How low does the car ride ( how many aprons/driveway entrances have you hit )? I have to be pretty careful in the Spyder going in and out of driveways.

How difficult is it to get the forward facing camera to activate when you are pulling up to a parking stop or curb?

ok thanks .. will cover those topics and will ask my Porsche rep any outstanding questions tomorrow and get back to you. What i can say is that Porsche's Nav + "Auto Regen" mode are interconnected and the car will auto regen based on topography & traffic, similar to the Audi etron and Benz EQC. kinda a neat feature imo. I will ask those nitty gritty questions tomorrow
