    Tire pressure influences range, but does the Taycan’s range estimate or PIRM take into account the current TPMS pressure readings? Or is it only indirect through observed consumption, and tire pressure’s influence upon that consumption?

    I keep my mobile charging gear in the rectangular pancake charging case that the PMC+ came in, and I place that in the frunk. However, that case doesn’t really fit the frunk well, makes it awkward to utilize the remaining space. I’m interested in finding a duffel bag or similar as my go-bag...
