Check out the Porsche Good to Know app on Apple and Android app stores. It has online manual with a fair amount on InnoDrive vs ACC.
I am getting InnoDrive and night vision. ;)
It’s a shame you can’t upload the manual. The Good to Know app’ has “coming soon” for the Taycan in UK and lots of us want the manual. . .

Not sure how far you are at the moment but if you reach Arizona (Phoenix or Flagstaff), let me know and I will buy you lunch (doesn't look like you will go hungry). Tesla owner but rooting for a smooth trip for a fellow EV driver

A big welcome to the Tesla folks! It's nice to see some friendliness between the Porsche/Tesla camps.

the two camps need each other to push one another and this whole EV thing forward - I’m loving it!

Hey, did anyone else know that there was a second Portland? It’s in Oregon.

And that’s where I am for a couple of nights. Visiting friends.

Yesterday, on my way into town I made a quick detour over to Beaverton Porsche. Unannounced, with no appointment, I showed up in Service and asked them if they could quickly check out why my seat ventilation wasn’t working.

“Sure, no problem!” was the response, which is great given that it’s Friday afternoon and I’m sure they had other cars to work on.

Within an hour they had it fixed (just a loose connector) and they had me back on the road again. I spent that hour chatting with the staff and some customers about the trip, about tires, about options, and of course, about charging.

Thank you very much to the team at Beaverton for their excellent service!

Huh? I am a west coast person, I didn't know there was any other Portland ;)

Great Porsche service, thanks for posting that.

Look forward to your next report about the range in non-Canada like weather!

as is typical, Tesla discussion derails a great thread. can't this be discussed elsewhere?
.

Save the fight for rennlist. Here people get along and the comments didn’t derail things anymore than Don’s audiobook suggestions. :)

But I too live on the Pacific Rim and am surprised to hear there’s a Portland outside of Oregon. In England perhaps?

Glad you made it through the Great White North. I think you’ll do a lot less 50k charting now. Got a copy of the Alister Stone book.

Consumption.
Range.
Anxiety.
Just find the Zen ... and Drive.

Until then, here’s more charts and graphs and numbers.

Low Consumption:

High Consumption:

Average for six days, 3826 miles.

So if I am reading this correctly, for your 3826 trip, the Taycan has averaged 2,217 miles per kWh ? So it has averaged 185.6 mile range for 83.7 useable part of the battery.......... Am I calculating this correctly?

That's pretty close. I get about a 187.3 mile range if I assume the 83.7 kWh capacity (209.1 miles if I assume the 93.4 kWh capacity). So it's in the ballpark.

Edit: I note that my calculations are based on the three trips. Each trip was quite different in efficiency. The first was VERY efficient, while the second was very inefficient for reasons only @louv knows.

I guess that was when he drove through the snow storm. Slush / snow on the road kills the range more than anything else - at least in my Tesla. Bottom line is that on an average cold day you can expect 180+ miles of range, which solves my range problems . Woohoo!

Climbing the Rocky Mountains probably didn't help.
