Great feedback and data thank you!Nightflying T4S
Here some numbers from yesterday night. Runs were typically done from 0km/h up to speed for some minutes and then back to 0km/h. Outside air temperature was a bit above freezing. The car had to have the lights on and the climate setting was at "Eco".
My takeaway: It is quite possible to drive long range, i.e. 400km+. It is just not what the car was made for ! Autobahn driving will probably be mostly fast or medium fast cruising.
- Range Run. In range mode and with a hesitant, very constant driving style, it is possible to push the power consumption down to below 20kWh per 100km. This was a run where I drove from a residential area to the autobahn, there cruising at about 111km/h, then stopping. Total distance was 22.9km, average speed 70km/h, consumption was 19.8 kWh/100km. This corresponds to 31.86 kWh/100 miles or about 318 Watthours per mile or about 3.14 miles/kWh.
- Aggro Speed Run. In sports mode and with a "go fast, brake, go faster" driving style (the Autobahn has 3 lanes and was nearly empty at midnight), power consumption easily goes up close to 50 kWh/100km. This was a run from an Autobahn entry to an Autobahn exit, in both times safely parked. Average speed was 149km/h, top speed 200+, distance 10.2 km, consumption 47.2 kWh/100 miles. This corresponds to 75.96 kWh/100 miles or about 756 Watthours per mile or about 1.32 miles/kWh.
- Fast Cruising Run. This is like the aggro speed run, with the speed, but without the aggro part. The idea is to drive fast, e.g. something like 170 +/- 15 km/h, but with very little variation and little braking. This was measured from standstill, but not to standstill, but while still driving 85km/h. The total distance was 7.7 km, average speed was 148km/h, consumption was 35.1 kWh. This corresponds to 56.5 kWh/100 miles or about 565 Watthours per mile or about 1.77 miles/kWh.
I am curious myself, but I have a company to run, plus Corona is round the corner in Italy, so right now there is more work than play to do.if you could test out the consumption when cruising 110 km/h, 120 km/h, 130 km/h and 140 km/h - to show how much it “costs” to increase cruising speed,
I have taken some pictures of partial leather while I was at the store. It looks decent If you don’t compare them with full leather. But Ofcourse it is missing that Elagant finish esp on console and doors.Hi HK111, do you have the partial leather interior? If so do you have any pics as I am still undecided as whether I should go full leather or not,
Thanks very much.Hello there,
I am certain the 4s has better range than the Turbo/S and you made the right assumptions and the right decision. But regarding the data: I am a physics / computer science guy, so reporting data correctly is "sacred" for me. I could only relay to you in this forum what has really happened or at least was supposedly measured, and those are the consumption data of 19.8 to 47 kWh/100km, the range computer's prediction of 400km in range mode, and so on. On top of the core data, there come the circumstances: Temperature, rain, use of AC, driving behaviour. The key insight from my point of view is that while just driving regularly, with a bit of emphasis on fun and speed, delivering children to the kindergarten, but also driving on the Autobahn, you get these kind of real world data.
Of course I would like to see 500km of range. Porsche originally mumbled about that range when we were still talking about the Mission E. That was probably when they hadn't had to do the harsh compromise of building the "foot garage" into the battery. If you look at their size, the battery modules which had to be taken out are roughly what would have been necessary to reach 500km WLTP.
PS1: I assume that in "United States mode", i.e. driving 55-75 miles per hour on a freeway, range will be higher than here.
PS2: to another poster: The steering wheel is the regular wheel.
My 4S production slot has also been pushed from Feb to May. Something is up, but nobody seems to know anything...Same here..my has been postponed several times. From Feb to March to April and today Porsche called my it will be Mid May. My order for a 4S has been made in November! Here my config which I ordered: https://www.porsche.com/microsite/porsche-code/default.aspx?c=/PLUKPWX9
