    DRAG RACE!! PORSCHE 918 SPYDER vs TAYCAN TURBO S vs MCLAREN 720S

    It wasn't clear whether they used launch control on the Taycan Turbo S. Even the video footage in the car have the third gauge covered by the steering wheel. It would not have changed the outcome with the 918, but also they never ran the Taycan against the 720S, maybe for a good reason. Much...

    NEMA 14-50 Supply cable heat data

    Thanks for this thread @daveo4EV and detailed posts by folks like @wmras. I also sent this off to my Porsche contact. I would suspect that there should be replacement NEMA 14-50 cables being sent to dealerships I hope soon. Till then I agree with others, just set max charging current to 24 or...

    My Taycan 4S delivered in Germany

    As far as I know there is but one heat pump which really only affects heating in a cold climate. The heat pump is included in the base configuration in some countries like the USA. See the effects from link in this post...

    My Taycan 4S delivered in Germany

    According to the milage estimator on the Porsche site the heatpump only noticably improves efficiency in 10C or cooler temps. But I don't disagree with @Gogs it's one of the more economical options.

    Setting up for charging in garage

    Wanted to add one more reason for timers is when charging to 100% for a road trip. Although simply pressing the direct charge button is by far the easiest option, using a timer profile instead allows the car to not reach 100% until shortly before you will be departing. having lithium ion...

    How to set to profile to only charge to 85%

    5.5kW is quite slow. For UK I believe you can get 11kW charging with the correct setup. At least see if you can get to 9.6kW which is 40Amp at 240V single phase. The 11kW in Europe is 32amp 3 phase I believe. And motivated by @svp6 even the 5.5kW will give you about 120mi range in 8hr. Is your...

    How to set to profile to only charge to 85%

    Yes @Gubbjaevel and @DragonRR Porsche used to have a 12% buffer split between the top and bottom when the car first came out in September and I recall watching the charging video by Alex Dykes for TFL Cars with great interest as he had it charging in less than 1 hour from 1% to 100%. That was up...

    Observed Behavior: North American 2020 Taycan has max 11 kW L2 charger (48 amps) not max 9.6 kW (40 amps)

    @daveo4EV, I do not and have not owned a Tesla; therefore I have no Tesla EVSE. I am quite aware that if the evse is only able to produce 40 amps or 32 amps or 24 amps that the car will only consume that amount of power and that there will be no problem. The reason I purchased the adapter from...

    Taycan 4s vs KIA e-Soul: All electric race | Car Lovers | Frankfurt to Berlin - DW REV - Cars & Mobility

    Posting to the general thread as of course a Taycan compared to a Kia e-Soul is not serious comparison. I have posted two other videos by this couple. They are quite cute together, also you can see Vaishali is rather new or overly anxious in terms of charging way early. And 50% never makes...
