  1. I beat the Porsche Taycan Turbo's EPA-estimated range without even trying - RoadShow

    Ron_b, Just to let you know I sent messages to both Electrify America and EVgo suggesting they put a 50kW or better charging station along i-40 in Needles CA. I will be interested to see what they have to say. Mentioned the situation of not being able to get there (Las Vegas) from here...
  2. I beat the Porsche Taycan Turbo's EPA-estimated range without even trying - RoadShow

    Ron_b, Here's hoping you get your 4S in September:) I have been following the Porsche EV since the Mission E. I even went to Tech Tactics West in November where I got to see, touch, and explore but not drive a Taycan that was there. The local Tucson dealership is undergoing renovation but did...
  3. I beat the Porsche Taycan Turbo's EPA-estimated range without even trying - RoadShow

    Ron_B, You are right about my not knowing exactly about affect of temperature on the battery. The April 2020 Auto Edition of Consumer Reports has an article on EVs in which it does comment that high temperature has affect on the range...whether that's because the A/C is running a lot or some...
  4. I beat the Porsche Taycan Turbo's EPA-estimated range without even trying - RoadShow

    I did review the Nurburging tests which were primarily endurance tests and not on a production vehicle. I never did see how many km were achieved between charges, or what the charge levels were each time the Taycan was charged. Here's the closest thing to "facts" from Porsche about the range...
  5. I beat the Porsche Taycan Turbo's EPA-estimated range without even trying - RoadShow

    It isn't really a "corner case"... A lot of folks drive from Tucson/Phoenix to Las Vegas (when there isn't a COVID19 problem) during the summer months here when it is normal outside temperatures often exceed 105F. The real problem is the lack of a 50kW charging station between Blythe and Las...
  6. I beat the Porsche Taycan Turbo's EPA-estimated range without even trying - RoadShow

    Still haven't seen any facts/figures/test results associated with what happens both range wise, and inside cabin temperature wise when the outside temp is 110F, the Range mode/ECO PLUS is selected, and one starts out with only an 80% charge. I would hate to find myself in my Taycan somewhere...
  7. I beat the Porsche Taycan Turbo's EPA-estimated range without even trying - RoadShow

    Unfortunately NONE of non-EPA driving range results reported so far for Tesla or Taycans have been done when the outside temperature exceeds 110F, a temperature often encountered here in the desert Southwest. It is not unusual to even hit 115F in Phoenix and Tucson. Nobody has been able to...
  8. I beat the Porsche Taycan Turbo's EPA-estimated range without even trying - RoadShow

    I am here in Tucson AZ and have been following all the different Taycan range road tests showing that the EPA estimate is not accurate. After all it is only an estimate as a result of runs done on dynamo-meter and in a controlled environment using a set of cycles under SAE J1634. I have no...
  9. Taycan 4S Range in Southwest Summer

    I will give that a shot as well. That's a long term solution. As it stands, it is not looking good for me to buy a Taycan 4S even with the larger battery since it is almost evident that I really can't get there from here! I often wonder what is holding up charging companies from getting with...
  10. Taycan 4S Range in Southwest Summer

    Thanks. It created the same route I have a problem with. The distance from the Blythe CA charging station to any of them in Las Vegas/Henderson is still over 210 miles. Given that it is often done in extreme heat of over 110F, and with some inclines, I have a hard time believing that the 4S...
  11. Taycan 4S Range in Southwest Summer

    HERE'S MY I CAN'T GET THERE FROM HERE DILEMMA. I would like to buy a Taycan 4s with the 93.4kWh battery. HOWEVER, I live in Tucson AZ, and often drive from Tucson to Las Vegas NV in the summer. I have recorded outside temperatures when passing through Phoenix in July and August of 115F +...
