I am reading all these posts about charging and the Taycan shutting off in the middle of the road and they are scaring the bejesus out of me.

I HATE problematic cars. The rattles and the gaps in the fittings have scared me away from Tesla. That’s really how I ended up at Taycan. But 4 of the last 6 cars I have owned have been Porsche, so its not altogether unexpected that I would end up back here.

The current plan is to trade my 2019 911 4S for a 4S Cross Turismo. Is that totally insane?

I’m really just looking for general feedback and advice here. I absolutely love the way the car looks and drives but I’ve been reading some horror stories about maintenance and reliability. I currently own a 2017 Cayenne hybrid S as well as a 1982 911 SC. I absolutely love Porsche but I’m just not sure about the Taycan and whether I should wait a year until they work the kinks out. What are your thoughts?

well for one thing, with all the shortages of everything, plus rising inflation, it will cost more to wait, but being a porsche owner already, that probably doesn't matter much. On the other hand, waiting may offer you even better variants of the taycan (sounds like covid eh?), so I suppose if you are not in a hurry, wait and maybe a better body style may come along with more range & power. There will be tremendous flux in the EV market over the next few years.

Just got my 2021 Taycan 4S. Could not be happier at this point. Traded my 2019 6 speed manual Boxster GTS and no regrets yet.

6 months in if i could give it away i would, range is rarely over 200 miles at 100%, never charges as fast as should at 350kw rapid chargers, endless infotainment problems, onboard charger failed, porsche assistance is awful, fans in the front suck up road debris and rattle. Just feel like i have an expense load of C#@P on my drive. Not even interested in driving it anymore, certainly no faith in either the car or Porsche uk. As soon as i can get something else it is going.
