    We gonna rock down to electric avenue...

    2021 Porsche Taycan
    402HP/5.1 sec 0-60/143MPH top speed
    Carrera White Metallic/Black Interior
    4,000 miles



    This electric machine was in for some correction and protection. Paint was in pretty good shape, just your typical swirls and some marring.


    The ‘details’:

    Adam’s shampoo.
    McKee’s37 iron remover
    Adam’s tire and rubber cleaner.
    Adam’s Eco wheel cleaner.
    McKee’s37 Hydro blue.
    Medium clay mitt.
    Defelsko PTG.
    Scangrip lighting.
    Flex 3401, pixie and Rupes iBrid.
    Griot’s FCC and Perfecting Cream.
    Optimum panel wipe.
    22ple Mistico Elemento Forte.
    GYEON tire.
    Metro vacuum.
    McKee’s37 quick interior detailer.
    Auto finesse glass cleaner.

    Thanks for looking!

    Sizzle Chest:
    Two characteristics stand out about this very white EV Porsche Taycan;
    1) Its front profile looks kinda "whale-like". Any references to "Moby Dick" are purely coincidental.
    2) No Stick Shift or Control Dial in the center counsel. Touch screen shifting or voice-activated shifting???
    (Don`t ever shout "Reverse"!!)

    Two detailing-related questions (as usual, Captain Obvious!):
    1) Are you using Adam`s Polishes` Strip Wash soap (the green stuff) or their "regular" Car Wash Shampoo (the blue stuff)??
    2) Was there more "contamination" on this vehicle?? Seems like a lot of "bleeding" of iron or whatever in the pics. Maybe it just shows up "more" with the white paint.

    Also "as usual", nice detailing workmanship on Moby Dick. (Yah, I couldn`t resist, although someone will ding me that Porsche used that nickname for its legendary late 1970`s/early 1980`s LeMan`s racing 935/78.)

    AND a Porsche-related question:
    What are YOUR thoughts on this Porsche EV?? Does this particular Porsche design and features "influence" you enough to say, "I would LOVE (not "like") to own and drive one"?

    One regret:
    Not seeing a pic of the motor (can I still call it engine?) compartment.
    (Edit: Dumb statement, Captain Obvious. There are TWO e-motors; one in the front and one for the back)
    Or is the hood sealed for life and only accessible by special Porsche tools?
    Or is it only opened through a voice-activated password "key phrase", like Eddy Grant . (Sorry for the poor pun and reference to the singer of Rock Down To Electric Avenue)

    (Don`t ever shout "Reverse"!!) the `shifter` is on the dash. A small toggle switch. Park is activated by a button next to it.

    2) Was there more "contamination" on this vehicle?? Seems like a lot of "bleeding" of iron or whatever in the pics. Maybe it just shows up "more" with the white paint. I don`t believe so, I think it just shows so much better on a white vehicle.

    Also "as usual", nice detailing workmanship on Moby Dick. (Yah, I couldn`t resist, although someone will ding me that Porsche used that nickname for its legendary late 1970`s/early 1980`s LeMan`s racing 935/78.) Thanks!

    AND a Porsche-related question:
    What are YOUR thoughts on this Porsche EV?? Does this particular Porsche design and features "influence" you enough to say, "I would LOVE (not "like") to own and drive one"? No, not in the least. I don`t particularly care for EV vehicles. We had a Turbo S model for a weekend, and although it was fun, the acceleration is unreal, I just didn`t fall in love with it. And I just can`t get behind, or even on the bandwagon of EV`s...

    One regret:
    Not seeing a pic of the motor (can I still call it engine?) compartment.
    (Edit: Dumb statement, Captain Obvious. There are TWO e-motors; one in the front and one for the back)
    Or is the hood sealed for life and only accessible by special Porsche tools? The frunk is open for storage/cargo, opens like a normal `hood` would.
    Or is it only opened through a voice-activated password "key phrase", like Eddy Grant . (Sorry for the poor pun and reference to the singer of Rock Down To Electric Avenue) LOL, nice!! Yes, Eddy Grant!!!

    Thanks Johny Utah!

    Frunk?? Oh, I get it; front trunk area or "Frunk". I should know what that is like. My `85 Toyota MR2 had that; not real big, volume-size wise. And yes, there was a storage area in the rear as well, behind the mid-engine 1600 CC 4A-GE motor, big enough for a briefcase and a SMALL duffel bag. (NO, it`s not considered "a trunk")
