I am coming from the Mercedes world so a Taycan order will be my first Porsche.
(1) Big gripe with Mercedes owners are the run flat tires and no spare. Can I assume the Taycan will have run flat tires and no spare, or jack or lug wrench?
(2) Do the stereo systems offered by Porsche have a quality sound? I am no audiophile but must admit a 100k in a Mercedes includes a pretty mediocre sound system.
Thanks....

If you're able to see the make and model of tire on Taycan test mules then that'll give you the answer to #1. Most pictures i've seen don't give you that opportunity.

No run flats on my Boxster or Cayenne.

Both come with tire sealant & compressor. Boxster has no spare since there is no place to put the flat tire.
Cayenne has an inflatable spare tire. Crap shoot on what the Taycan will come with.

Run flats are generally not great for performance. I'd suspect the tire sealant and compressor is what we'll get in the Taycan.

As for the stereo, I'd say it's pretty good. That's the base Bose system.
The optional Burmester systems Porsche offers are next-level!

(1) As far as I know there are no Porsche N spec run-flats, so no. Most likely its an inflatable spare+pump.
(2) The Bose system sounds decent. Haven't heard the Burmester.
