Hello everyone.It’s been a while since then My last post, Here is a relatively thorough review of living and owning a Porsche Taycan 4S in Canada in 2020.
Frankly, nothing new has happened since then. Besides waiting for the bustling winter to thaw, I got some Taycan-related accessories and got a big software update for the car. The latter event sounds important-and perhaps in a grand plan of things-but I’m not saying it changed my personal experience in the car in a remarkable or measurable way.Perhaps another to get the most out of the new upgrade Excursion to the racetrack It’s going well …
I think there is a silver lining that accompanies less writing (or yelling). This is ultimately evidence of the lack of car turmoil and a nod to its inherent quality. Plus, you’ll have more time to write about other exciting things in the “T’s Corner” pipeline. More details will be revealed in a future post :).
Now, the details of this completely free software update ( Porsche Center Calgary (For great service): It applies to 2020 model cars and, in simplest terms, essentially updates it to the 2021 model. If you are the owner of the 2020 Taycan, you should have ever received a call from your dealer and are scheduled for service. Expect to unload your car all day long.
“This update doesn’t affect range, but it seems to improve performance slightly. In a press release, Porsche Cars North America said,” Readjusted for the control unit responsible for controlling the powertrain and suspension. The software has further improved driving dynamics and performance. “
The North American release doesn’t mention specific numbers, but the European release doesn’t. Taycan Turbo S From 0-124 mph to 0.2 seconds faster to 9.6 seconds.
This update also adds the Smart Lift system from the 2021 Taycan. The system automatically remembers where additional clearance is needed, such as speed bumps or steep driveways, and raises the adaptive air suspension as needed.
It also includes an upgraded navigation system with lane-specific information and detailed traffic information, as well as Apple CarPlay. Customers with an Apple ID have access to Apple Podcasts (including video streaming) and Apple Music lyrics. Cars equipped with ambient lights can also change the color of the lights based on what they are playing.
The charge planner allows the driver to set the charge rate and the charge rate of the battery. However, plugins and charging are not enabled in this update. This allows the driver to plug in and charge and automatically pay with a pre-selected payment method. Porsche had to make hardware changes to the 2021 Taycan for its functionality.
Customers also have more feature-on-demand options that can be added permanently after point of sale or through a monthly subscription. The latest update adds active lane control and Porsche’s InnoDrive. It can take over control under some highway driving conditions in addition to the previously available Intelligent Range Manager. “

Therefore, in essence, the car drives slightly better and offers more comprehensive comfort and useful features.I would have preferred a wider range than I could hear the Apple Podcasts, but in the end I almost eliminate giving free access to these updates. FOMO Otherwise, it will be associated with being an early adopter. It will be interesting to see how long and to what extent Porsche will extend free software updates. Hopefully, as long as I own the car, this could only be suitable for resale value, given that the car’s hardware will not change significantly in the new model year.
What else … Oh yeah, I installed some wheel spacers for use in the aftermarket Advan GT wheel summer / truck set I have in my car right now. These wheels shared about the same specifications as Taycan’s OEM 20-inch wheel options, but the rear wheels in particular seemed to be quite sunk. The 20mm H & R wheel spacer seems to work (and 7mm has been added to the front).
I also bought SeaSucker Talon rack In the process, you can unknowingly carry your road bike with you while creating a dynamic duo monument that fights the city’s latest emissions.
