Where is it being held? Do you know if they will be doing anything at the Porsche North America in Atlanta?

What to expect from a maintenance point of view? Will the Taycan have a similar maintenance schedule as the current ICE cars?

I'd like to see some more clarification about Porsche's charging network for the Taycan. Also, speaking of maintenance, what kinds of training are Porsche mechanics getting for the Taycan? Or will there be specialized mechanics that only work on the Taycan?

What I'm the most curious about is if they're expecting to see any delays as a result of battery metal shortages? If not, how are they not going to be affected by these shortages?

Good point.
Unfortunately, all we can really depend on for now is pressing dealers for allocation and transit info, aside from that its just a waiting game.

Hello! Here some questions:
  • battery packs upgrades (if solid state batteries are launched in 3 years, will we be able to upgrade easily and for a reasonable price ?);
  • Is there a Smart trip planning system showing where to stop?
  • I heard there will be different versions of the 4S ranging from 425hp to 625hp. Will there be a long range version with 425hp?
Thanks

fyi - some extra info received from Porsche: Turbo and Turbo S will be presented on Sept 4th, 4S will launch on Oct 15th with min 530km (330miles) WLTP up to 600km (370miles) - if this is confirmed, it would be great!!

Can they provide additional information on over the air (OTA) updates? Will this be for all the systems in the car or just for certain systems (like navigation or climate control? Will there be a charge for the updates?

Hey Alex, there will be a trip planner in the GPS that will help drivers know where to stop and charge.

For your other questions we're not allowed to reveal anything until Sept. 4th.
