Hello all, just wanted to stop by and say hi, I just got my Taycan few weeks ago and finally had time to register for an account (been lurking on here since I got the car) taycan is my fifth Porsche, and I can honestly say it’s the best Porsche I’ve ever owned. My car has the 12 volt battery issue, ( which it didn’t until they activated Porsche connect services ) it dies if left plugged in overnight and no the dealer failed to fix it (Porsche Orlando) at this point I’m just waiting for the major update to get it all sorted it out which is a few weeks away apparently. Here’s a pic;

Picked mine up Thursday from Orlando Porsche and finally activated the whole shebang today. Did your 12V issue give you any warning?

Hey @Agent47, what other Porsches did you own?
Considered other vehicles before getting the Taycan?
my first one was a 03 boxster S , navy on navy , with no traction control or ESP (factory option)
second one was a 02 Carrera 4S
third one was 01 turbo S
fourth one was a 14 carrera S cab
fifth one was a 18 cayenne platinum
sixth one is the taycan 4S with the plus battery

I’ve owned 57 cars besides those I just counted, from exotics to classics, such as Ferrari 360, or the first gen Viper RT/10, love cars in general.

considered other vehicles, but after driving the taycan I was sold right away!

It’s the 4S with performance plus battery, full leather , fast charging , and surface coated brakes, it’s not fully loaded but msrp was 140ish so has some bells n whistles , everything I need , nothing I don’t

How many miles were you able to drive before the battery issue started?
Honestly my battery issue started after registering for Porsche ID, before that 0 issues , it was strange

I found out yesterday that Vodafone and their superb software updated my Cayman account instead of the Taycan. Chad or Tom is aware of it. I hope they can initialize it with the code Vodafone sent me without me being there.
I’m not a member of the local chapter but they usually send a new invite after you buy a Porsche. I’m still fooling around with all the selections which are nested within the 3,000 sub menus. 😊

Unfortunately I don’t think those updates are the same, this update is NOT over the air, and Taycan doesn’t use the connect services that’s provided by Vodafone for the updates etc, that update was for your cayman looks like, this update can only be done by the Porsche dealer itself as one, the file size is too big, and two the Porsche computer has to calibrate certain components, such as the gearbox!
