Tesla stans dunk on Porsche Taycan’s slow software update

LONDON – The first electric Porsche Taycans are due for a software update, but it won’t be quick.

Drivers won’t be able to push a button on the in-car screen, connect to WiFi, and update the car while in their own garage. Instead, the $100,000+ electric vehicle needs to be brought into a Porsche dealership. Once an owner has made an appointment, they should plan to be without a car for two business days.

The update is free and it upgrades the EV’s capabilities to match the newer 2021 Taycans, with faster acceleration and more efficient battery charging, along with other improvements to the navigation system and wireless Apple CarPlay connection.

But as Tesla fans were quick to point out when the Taycan update was announced Tuesday, this is a far cry from the established Tesla over-the-air (OTA) software update process.
