  1. High consumption after first start

    I find that my battery does not heat, but rather will start at or below ambient, depending on night temps here. As I drive, the battery will slowly warm in proportion to the demand I put on the motor. It will heat on range planner, when I schedule a trip that is beyond the charge's range...
  2. No Porsche Extended Warranty Available?

    At the end of my lease on a 2020 Taycan 4S, I bought a vehicle protection service protection agreement from Porsche Financial Services. It runs for 84 months/85,000 miles and covers everything except maintenance consumables, and the battery. Of course the high voltage battery is covered...
  3. New Charger-related recall (for the 240 V cable) (NHTSA ID 23V-841)

    Yes, living dangerously...I will keep you posted.
  4. Stone damage to cooling unit

    I had the same radiator puncture, the result of a gravel truck spilling gravel on the roadway. See the attached.....I haven't installed screens but it does appear to be a good idea.
  5. High consumption after first start

    I think the high consumption issue is a matter of simple division: the acceleration at start-up is divided over a very short, distance, and thus yields high consumption. Once you have driven more distance the total consumption averages over that distance and evens out.
  6. What a beautiful car..

    I agree, Porshe is missing a great opportunity. If I had been alive in the 19th century, I would have been a great horse enthusiast, similarly to my enthusiasm for sports cars currently. Horses have one thing sports cars don't have at least for now...that is they interact with you socially, as...
  7. What a beautiful car..

    Perhaps the upcoming Cayman E will be the sports coupe you are looking for....I am hoping it will be for me. I have signed up for one as soon as they are available....as long as they look at least as good as the Taycan
  8. New Charger-related recall (for the 240 V cable) (NHTSA ID 23V-841)

    Yes, and a perfect fire break!
  9. New Charger-related recall (for the 240 V cable) (NHTSA ID 23V-841)

    The Taycan serves as the fire break...it's in the driveway between the house and the garage
  10. New Charger-related recall (for the 240 V cable) (NHTSA ID 23V-841)

    Fortunately, the charger is in my garage, so only the detached garage/shop will go up in smoke.
  11. New Charger-related recall (for the 240 V cable) (NHTSA ID 23V-841)

    I charged my Taycan 4S today to 75% and checked the temp of the cables. I was charging with 8.5 KW and the cables weren't even warm.(it's 50 F here today) I wonder if it helps that all the electrical components are within a foot of the panel box, so cable lengths are very short. I am inclined to...
  12. New Charger-related recall (for the 240 V cable) (NHTSA ID 23V-841)

    Please let us know if it works....I will do the same.
  13. New Charger-related recall (for the 240 V cable) (NHTSA ID 23V-841)

    Do you think that one can simply as for a service voucher, without a receipt for a charger?
  14. New Charger-related recall (for the 240 V cable) (NHTSA ID 23V-841)

    I am thinking that I will reconsider my options, if/when the Cayman E becomes available. I plan to sell my 997.2S and go all electric at that time. Perhaps the battery and charging technology will warrant an upgrade at that time, Thanks,
  15. New Charger-related recall (for the 240 V cable) (NHTSA ID 23V-841)

    Thanks for this explanation. I am tempted to leave my installation as is for the time being since it has functioned without incident for 3.5 years, I use it nearly exclusively to charge, having used DC charging just 3 times. I also generally charge for relatively short times, say from...
  16. New Charger-related recall (for the 240 V cable) (NHTSA ID 23V-841)

    Thanks for this great explanation....I have a 50 amp breaker on a 100 amp 240V 2 phase service installed in my garage, and it yields 8.6 amps to the vehicle, reduced when one approaches 90-100% charge. I have many large woodworking tools in the garage/shop, and have often thought about...
  17. New Charger-related recall (for the 240 V cable) (NHTSA ID 23V-841)

    I may be the odd person out here, but I must confess that I have had no problems with the Porsche Charge that came with my 2020 4S. Admittedly, the charger-to-vehicle cable gets a bit warm, but not particularly worrisome. i would rather simply have Porsche replace the existing cables with ones...
  18. New Charger-related recall (for the 240 V cable) (NHTSA ID 23V-841)

    I noticed that too...the Porsche charger that came with my 2020 4S does 9.6 KW, so I hate to default to a slower charger.
  19. Trim removal

    Great...thnks...It would be great to have a Utube video out there.
  20. Trim removal

    I look forward to finding out how to do it. I scraped off the jack point and damaged the skirt I bought the part on Suncoast and I tried to replace my passenger side skirt, but am stymied by removal of the end pieces you identify(both front and rear)
