    How to set to profile to only charge to 85%

    In 2021 models they added ability to limit charging speed to 200kW, but there is no current interface to limit charging limit within the car. However, for USA customers using the Charging NA app there is a Settings parameter to set charging time limit. So you can set that but then you need to...

    I've had a Panamera SE Hybrid and Macan S. When my vehicle was in for over 4 weeks I got a Taycan 4S. I have been very satisfied with Porsche Stevens Creek, even with some hickups they treat me very well, even though I have no other Porsches and no prior relationship.

    Please Welcome Stealth

    With just over 12,500 miles I had to take Stealth back into Porsche Service for the Power Loss Vehicle Recall with some trepidation; however, it was unfounded. Taken to service Monday the Aug 2nd and back in my hands Aug 3rd. A excellent loaner as well (T4S). Very happy to have a short post...

    12V death while plugged in - can we declare victory?

    I agree it would be nice to have an option to auto-unlock on charging complete, but I understand why it's not the default. In europe the Type 2 cables usually belong to the vehicle not the station so it's locked to prevent theft. In America it's useful when using a Tesla Destination Charger...

    Electrify America is doubling its charging network by 2025 with 10k chargers at 1,800 fast-charging stations

    Well you may be giving Tesla a bit too much credit, they did start the network in 2012. So 9 years to get where they are with 25000 units world wide but many more units per site than EA so as far as location I think EA is already on par for the United States. That being said Tesla still runs a...
