I just gave some of the employees at the BMW place a ride while explaining how BMW started with the I division and then threw away their entire lead in EVs...
they’ve had a succession of executives who are quite hostile to EV. They wasted so much time and work. I’m skeptical they survive the transition as anything other than a husk

Strange on Nav. Did your build include Porsche Intelligent Range Manager/QW5?

("Based on the route, the Porsche Intelligent Range Manager adjusts the maximum speed as well as the air conditioning to minimize charging and journey time with maximum comfort. During your journey, the system also provides proactive advice, in case you can reduce your travel time with a different vehicle set-up.")

Thats exactly what you seem to be missing...

Where is Porsche Intelligent Range Manager in the build list? I’m in the UK.

Actually it does not, but I discovered it can be purchased and added after the fact (its a pay then it downloads to your car in the store). But showing locations of charge stations is NOT a part of the "intelligent range manager," that is just sticking the normal Nav into a car and forgetting to add a category.

Yeah, electric charge points should just be like POI. Maybe have a look to see if you can add them? Settings somewhere?

I believe that is standard equipment in the UK for a Turbo! Do not know about the other models though. Check the spec on standard equipment.

I did and didn’t see it... maybe UK infrastructure related? It was shown in the Initial tests on YouTube in Nordic Region

@epirali can you change the drive setting through voice control? Can you say something like “Hey Porsche, change drive mode to sport plus” or something like that?

Thanks for sharing all of your driving impressions. It’s making my May delivery date seem impossibly far away.

That’s funny because I just checked it on the UK Porsche site, and here it is!

Ok more info/answers to questions:

- Driving modes can not be changed via voice command
- In cold weather conditions there isn’t a huge different between Sport and Sport Plus acceleration, did not try launch control.

Oh btw I MAY have discovered today that the car will do a beautiful controlled slide....:surprised:
