2013 Panamera GTS sold 2023 Taycan 4s Arrived!

OK, officially confused. BTW, have a '23 Taycan 4s on the train to Emden, my first EV. Have a BMW X5 45e hybrid which doesn't matter. With respect to EV's I read conflicting reports re: what % of battery to charge. Is 80% the maximum recommended? Some speak to charging at 100% and then I read articles indicating that anything over 80-85% will degrade the battery. And, to spice things up a bit, Porsche is constantly updating software that will or will not extend range. WTF? What % of charge is appropriate? Thinking of selling all my 4 cars and riding a horse!

Hello fellow STL person.

Charge to 85% unless you are going on a long trip or will otherwise be using it immediately. Don’t let it sit at 100% for long periods of time.

From what I understand, 85% is a good “daily” charge limit. If you anticipate a longer trip you may chart to 100% without fear of degrading g the battery system.

You can ride an average, healthy and energetic horse for 25 and 35 miles (40 – 56.5 km) in one day in ideal conditions. However, most of them will successfully handle only 15 and 20 miles (24 – 32 km) a day with enough water, food, and rest. Keep in mind that distance traveled also depends on you, weather conditions, terrain, and equipment you use.

Pros of horse riding:
-No electricity needed to charge the beast
- No tax to pay for using the roads and beast
- all weather hoofs can conquer any terrain Without worry about scratches and dings
Cons:
- could be more temperamental than the prancing horse on a Ferrari
- poop clean up
- methane emissions would get your snubbed out of “Eco societies”
- Vet bills can be more drastic than your Taycans abnoxious cost of service

What’s a “decent” miles per kWh? I picked up my ST RWD 10 days ago and my total average so far is 2.3 which is only giving me 160 range based on the 270 miles I’ve driven so far. I’ve not needed to use AC, outside temp has been mild and I’ve been doing a mix of school runs and motorway. Underwhelmed so far.

Also, unlikely your regen brakes have started to be used yet, so you'll get some uplift from that in a few 100 miles time.
That said, my CT4S (performance+ battery) is only returning 2.4m/kw which is about 200 miles on that battery. I think you should be hoping for in the region of 3m/kw to get to promised ranges. Best mine has ever really done is about 2.8, and i'm not getting close to that. Maybe autumn vs summer temperatures is the difference. No idea if a temperature reduction of about 10 degrees should account for that.

Plus horse dentist, summer rugs, winter rugs, saddles, various bandages plus all the seasons clothing for the rider.
Let alone horse feed, supplements and lots of hay.
Also cost of stables or agistment, fencing, paddock upkeep etc.
Been there, done that!
Porsche services are very cheap in comparison to running a horse/horses.
