I'VE BOUGHT A PORSCHE TAYCAN TURBO S! My First EV in the Garage

I've gone electric and bought a Porsche Taycan Turbo S to join the Shmeemobiles! It's collection day of the surprise new addition to my garage and the first EV I've ever owned. I'm excited for the experiences ahead and to have returned a Porsche back to the collection, but there are immediately some changes in the making...
As a typical car guy and fan of the biggest possible combustion engine in my cars, I've often wondered about the world of electric cars and whether it could work for me. Fundamentally it's going to be a challenge as I have zero access to charging at home, however my intrigue in the technology, infrastructure and driving experience has kept my eyes open to giving it a go.
Earlier this year I drove the Porsche Taycan for the first time, also a Turbo S model, and was blown away that this car is a Porsche first, and EV second, as opposed to just about every other player in the market that reverses the roles and tries too hard to be something else. From the launch of the Mission-E it's always been an interesting project, and the Taycan managed to bring in that style, while also fitting the bill as a sensible looking Porsche.
Having previously owned two Porsches; a 981 Cayman GT4 and 991.2 911 GT3, there's been a notable absence until recently but along came the perfect spec Taycan Turbo S for me and I thought why not just go for it and learn what the EV world is all about! Welcome then, SH70 MEE, to the Shmeemobiles. The car is a very high spec in Volcano Grey, with the Sport Design package, PDCC (Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control), Olea leather upgrade, panoramic roof, passenger display and so many more it would be hard to list everything.
This is where the journey begins, heading with the AMG G63 to the Porsche Centre Hatfield to collect a product from another brand based in Stuttgart, Germany. With the weather massively against us for the day, come along with me for the collection experience in the current circumstances and the first drive back home to the garage. This is really just the start though as the visual side of the spec will be dramatically changed and very soon in a totally unique specification - stay tuned!
I'm excited to have partnered with Approved Motor Finance who have successfully helped with the funding side of the Taycan. The team behind Approved Finance were responsible for the financing of all the Shmeemobiles you've seen in recent years, from the Senna and Ford GT to the new GT R Roadster and Taycan Turbo S. AMF offer both Business and Motor Finance and we've carried my experience into a tailored packages offering the best possible rates, with more information available via: www.approvedmotorfinance.co.uk/shmee150
I look forward to sharing my EV journey, thank you for the support! Thank you also to Sami and the team at Porsche Hatfield, and Krish and the team at AMF for all the help to make this happen.
Thanks for watching, Tim

  • Thanks! I'm just looking into getting an EV. And do not want a Tesla, since I dislike Musk. So basically this, and the plain S, are my only options for an EV with decent torque, steering, ride + max speed over 100mph? It just seems suckily expensive at what £160k with all the options added. Is there nothing decent at around £60k besides the Teslas!? Also have you tried the IR pedestrian detection? How does that work I was wondering!

  • Like a new Porsche but they remove the fog lamps we in America market we like fog lights for the ambience of the way the car looks with the Fog lights and park lights on I don’t know why they’re removing them we paid lots of money in the 70s and 80s for aftermarket packages and then had to have them install And in the 90s and instill TODAY it’s an option in a package so we paid for that package to have the fog lights now you’re removing them so we have to find And after market vendor to buy them again and pay to have them installed

  • Electric cars use alot of electricity 😆 for which alot of pollution goes into creating the electricity and not to mention the manufacturing of the batteries which are very pollutant to make and the slave labour of the mining for them by children paid peanuts.

  • 14:28 - "Feels instantly like a Porsche...." While this seems so immaculate to this guy, the truth is that it is merely Porsche doing self-preservation for their gas cars. What they really need to be doing, if they want to be around in 2030, is to completely redefine what cars and driving feels like. And this cannot be done with their gas cars, so they end up compromising their Taycan in hopes of carrying their gas cars along to the future. This won't work. Sorry.

At this rate you are destined to become a second-hand car dealer. And your dad can’t be happy with the monumental depreciation you must experience but then again he is probably too rich to care!!

    • @Life of Smokey obviously its better. Literally every 63 Amg model, except maybe the two seater GTs, is leased. No wonder the numbers of EVs are rising so fast. Makes me like my neighbour even more haha. He leases all of his cars as well, had a F10 M5, then a Model S....than got back to an M5 F90, and now has the latest M5 Facelift 😁

      Wolfgang BarrioWolfgang BarrioПре месец
    • @Wolfgang Barrio haha by far no! But remember that 99% of all those cars are leased and not paid for ;-). For business owners it's better to lease or rent them over 4 years. ;-)

    • @Life of Smokey yeah, but now lets be serious....you aren't poor if you drive a Taycan anyway 😁

      Wolfgang BarrioWolfgang BarrioПре месец
    • @Wolfgang Barrio the Taycan is popular here in Europe for it’s financial advantage if you own a business or small company. If it wasn’t for that they would not even sell half as much. If you own a business a full electric car is 100% tax reductable! If i would buy a Turbo S i pay so much less taxes that car is almost free to drive.... Last 4 years electric cars where 120% tax reductable so you got extra money back. Some people have been driving a free Tesla. Well not really free but , the price for a Tesla reduced for your taxes if you know what i mean 😁
