Ok Folks,

pulled the trigger today with my Porsche Rep. I been back and forth about whether Taycan Sedan & Cross Turismo or just 1 or the other. Ultimately decided today to forgo on the Taycan Sedan today and weather a longer wait for the Cross Turismo for the following reasons:

1. I believe Porsche will learn a few tricks/do's/dont's from its 1st builds (Q1 2020) & from its 2nd builds (June 2020) and will take those lessons learned and apply them to the Cross Turismo.
2. I am banking on a notion that Porsche will offer more range for the 2021 Cross Turismo
3. Cross Turismo will offer a bit more "utility"
4. I was banking on the wireless charging option in addition to the usual cable charging as outlined/advertised in our Taycan booklet but that didn't come to fruition in 1st gen Taycan
5. 2nd gen Taycan builds (June 2020) seem to have more options ( standard roof vs Pano roof/ect) which leads me to believe additional options after June 2020 will be available for the Taycan Sedans and those will translate into the Cross Turismo
6. a couple more inches of headroom in the back
7. its know its kitsch but been told the drone package will be available with the Cross Turismo
8. I am #1 on wait list for the Cross Turismo
9. I will revisit a purchase of the Taycan Sedan after June 2020

Maybe I am being overly cautious & yes it sucks to force myself to wait more but I think its for the best.

It definitely doesn't hurt being #1 on the waitlist that's for sure haha. I don't blame you at all for deciding to wait, the added practicality of the hatchback and extra space is definitely a plus. I also agree that Porsche will probably make some tweaks to the Cross Turismo that they learn from the Turbo and Turbo S.

I waited for the Pana E and it took forever, so I pulled the trigger and purchased a 4S model - then loved the car so much I ordered the E - just traded it for a new 4S 992; however, I too have a Taycan on order, but also prefer the GT - so, I'm going to take the Sedan Turbo S and then trade it for the GT. I'm tired of waiting with Porsche.

Nice move. Considering this myself.

Prior to any news of the Cross Turismo I was looking at an Audi All-Road or its closest Mercedes rival, the E-Class Wagon (which I admit, Benz did an outstanding job on). Seeing the Taycan CT like this, the choice is obvious.

I spent some time driving Panamera's and always loved them which also helps to build a case to go CT.

Have you driven any Panamera's?

Currently drive a Panamera Turbo S e-Hybrid Sport Turismo as well as a E63 Wagon Weistec tuned. Atm i have pushed my Taycan Sedan waitlist placing to June build cycle. If more options will be available then as I been told and have a hunch I will make a decision to get the sedan in addition to the CT. If not I will just wait for a few more months for the CT. Always been a Wagon guy.
