Having driven a 4S w/o for 5 months, then a Turbo with everything for 8 months, and now a loaner 4S w/o for 3 weeks - I believe I have pretty good experience in both.
You definitely feel the difference! No Q about it.
If it's worth the money - individual decision. If you want the best and money...
Tx, will look forward to your feedback.
As it is now - cruising on the highway at 130 km/h - Range mode (AC in normal, not eco) and Sport mode uses pretty much the same amount of energy.
I will continue testing myself back and forth.
It is my experience that in Range mode, it uses only FWD unless power requirements dictate the need for AWD.
"Driving in this mode means driving with the most efficient all-wheel distribution possible." = Only FWD. Which mine does not, after update.
Next time I'm on the highway, I'll check the...
Just got mine back from the latest WMA5/6 update - now SW 3397.
Observed a change in behaviour on range mode on the way back.
On Car/Trip in the menu - you can see energy flows. (blue = usage, green regen, 2WD/4WD).
Before in range mode I clearly saw the rear wheels disengage when gently...
Intelligent Range Manager no a requirement.
Add a charger as a stopover or final destination and your vehicle automatically preps battery temp at arrival (30*C if I'm not mistaken).
Or, as we early adopters found out - Spots Plus+ for the last 20km and a heavy right foot works as well.
Good. Porsche had invested a lot of time, money, effort into the Taycan. And it shows.
I believe it is the obvious way forward. Can't see any negative side to it.
Next-gen solid state batt, w/o the need for precious metals on behalf of child slave labour, 800km+range, ISO 15118/V2G...
37, First P as well, Active SW engineer, Never owned T, Never owned BC, never owned GME.
We're pretty similar, deduct 2 decades and investments. All good, brother.
I fully agree P can improve, *easily*, on the software-side of things.
Yep, of course the real issue is that Porsche builds cars to be driven by the driver, not ipads on wheels.
I, as well, assumed you're trolling. And still do.
If not - I might be getting to old for this.
This forum has changed -a lot- in the last 3-6 months.
ALK is "acceptable" (not good) on highways. I use it quite often when boring drives with the family.
I'm 100% sure it can and will be improved programmatically during the years.
The thing that bugs me is that it "pops out" of ALK without notice. I'd venture to say it is a hazard. A slight...
I've grown to appreciate the "build in" settings - something I didn't in the beginning.
I'm normally in "normal" - no need for 1st gear in my day to day drive (with wife and kids in car).
When the desire is there, switch to Sport+ and the car really comes alive like and ICE with sound...
Seen some general info about the update, but nothing too specific.
(This thread, and this post: https://www.taycanforum.com/forum/threads/dealer-software-update.4100/post-56509)
Also saw @Dee post some info on FB, but couldn't find it now that I was looking for it.
As far as I know, in...
I have already established that Porsches SW engineers are not up to par with the leading players. (Or perhaps more accurately; the management will now allow them to be. Either way - result is the same for end users).
I went ahead with the Blackvue:
Blackvue DR900X-2CH paired with Power Magic...
I had the issue recently.
Both doors locked closed.
Went to PC. They could manually reset, and see that there is a sensor fault. Sensor not available in Germany. They have not disabled my AC charge port door and all working OK. No real issues, either.
