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

    And yet you left out the part of me also being a Porsche Fan and current Porsche owner......"superfluous details" .......they are called facts.

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

    I just did a quick search and couldn't find a link to the EPA auditing Tesla's EPA rating. I hesitate to state something without a source. I did find where Consumer Reports (which as been both positive and negative about Tesla) verified the ratings listed for the Model 3...

    It's not a choice. There is no conspiracy. The EPA randomly tests 15 to 20% of new vehicles every year in what equates to an audit. See page 5...

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

    I haven't had a Model S in 3 years and from what I recall my Model S was not as efficient as my current Model X. It appears as if the "raven" drivetrain Telsa introduced last year significantly increased the efficiency of the Model S and Model X. I'm a skeptic when it comes to car and...

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

    I know with my 2020 Model X Performance the EPA range is clearly accurate and easily obtainable as I've listed actual results in this thread.

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

    From what I understand the EPA randomly selects 15 to 20 % of vehicles to test and relies on manufacturers in other instances. Clearly the Porsche Taycan's EPA results are not accurate. One would hope for some type of challenge or re-evaluation to change the rating. Here is a link to...

    Here is a trip with some amazing efficiency. Remember, this is a heavy performance model SUV offering from Tesla. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

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

    This trip was into a headwind and rain. The second portion of the trip I had to slow down because it was raining so hard we had limited visibility. Given the circumstances, and how aggressive I drove, I am still impressed with how efficient the Model X Performance is. I can't wait to see...

    The charge rate would reflect my home charging in Texas. Not sure why Teslafi used it on this trip though, because I used supercharging and I have free supercharging. I'll have to look through the history to find a flat mileage trip. On this particular trip I didn't take the same route...

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

    The EPA rating has never factored in real world driving for any car, ICE or Electric. The Porsche Taycan EPA rating does appear to be too conservative. I was shocked at how close to EPA rating I achieved in my 2020 Tesla Model X Performance edition in good weather conditions. Does it...

    Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    Don, Do you have a way to track the average driving speeds for these distances? The farthest I have achieved in my Tesla Model X Performance is 297 miles averaging 65 mph under ideal conditions (60 to 70 degrees and no wind all highway driving). The ranges you are achieving in the...

    Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    I can vouch that Tesla AP1 was/is far superior to the LKA that I ordered on my 2018 Macan GTS. I was disappointed in the LKA ability in my Macan (not the car itself, just that specific feature). I'm on my 2nd Tesla that now has AP3, but as someone else stated I would be completely happy...

    Taking One Lap of the Country in my Taycan Turbo - 10k miles in 6 weeks Cross-Country Journal

    Tesla and Porsche owner here. Love the trip and updates Don. Thank you for sharing. With all these EV road trips taking place (although yours is by far the most exciting to me), one must plan for a road trip. Wish I could take off 6 weeks to trek through Canada, alas, I don't think...
