i had chance to attend taycan preview event the other week and i found out its ground clearance is ridiculously low.
i tried to put my cell phone lengthwise under the front/rear bumper but i couldn't. it just got stuck under some plastic spoings both front & rear.
the show car surely had ground clearance lower than gtc4 lusso and even aventador.
of course it might be the lowest position for dramatic show,
but even so it seems obvious you will have to take too much care of ride height whenenver you drive taycan even if its air suspension offer good amount of height adjustment.
i presume this absurdity is caused by porsche's excessive greed that to create an electric car that doens't look like one.
they sacrificed ground clearance just as much as the thickness of battery layer.
what do you guys expect taycan's daily usability to be?

I 100% expect it will be completely liveable. Just like how every Porsche is far more livable than lots of Italian supercars. I haven't heard any reports from early owners of issues.

Most of the 911s look super low to the ground, but I've never had issues with speed bumps in them.

Does anyone have the actual ground-clearance specs for the car?

I live in pot-hole central AND specifically chose a snowy day to test drive. It performed just fine both in 4in snow and with bad road conditions. I expect it will do fine as a daily driver for most. There are multiple configurable ride heights to accommodate.

I don't see why the Taycan wouldn't take after the what the 911's front axle lift system did. Most 911 guys I know with it have zero complaints. So for now i'll reserve my concerns for the Taycan.

Porsche 911 Turbo Models - Front axle lift system

Front axle lift system
Available as an option, the lift system raises the vehicle by around 40 mm at the front – while driving at a speed of up to approximately 37 mph. This new system ensures that curbs, ramps and garage entrances no longer present a sporting challenge.

During my recent test drive i took the car over a few speed bumps.. the Taycan will do just fine.. you can raise the car with a push of the button on your right side of the curved display if you really need some height. The car auto adjust itself in your drive mode selects.

Thanks Cpoarchy. Very helpful info.
I also found this pic of a Taycan in the real world showing that speed bumps should not be an issue
