What’s a start, so is it only the battery we have extra warranty on! 8 years, how many % capacity left?
I can see you have 3 years general warranty, we only have 2 years!

And has any dealer quoted the price of battery replacement after 160,000km or 100,000 miles?

Aren’t they basically a part of the frame ? I think it’ll be impractical to replace them.

I’m cautiously optimistic about not really needing to. The older Tesla have a solid reputation for fairly minimal degradation (in the grand scheme of things) and Porsche has reserved ~10% of the battery pack to reduce charging wear and build in replacement capacity.

I heard in a video from a Porsche engineer that though the battery is structural it is removable with the proper lift equipment. That's the same with other EVs. Like the Bolt EV, it's not trivial but doable.

I do hope to not worry about actually needing it with the thermal management of Porsche.

With battery costs and capacities changing so rapidly, it's kind of silly to ask for a quote now on something you wouldn't need for years.
I'm sure they CAN quote it. Because they need to be prepared for crash damage replacements, but the number doesn't really mean anything in the context being discussed here: Warranty claims in the future.

Hi

Got my contract including the warranty here in Denmark. The battery pack is guaranteed by the AG - not Porsche DK (Privately owner import).

Anyway the warranty is 8 years and 160.000 km (100.000 miles) but with a limit to 70% of original capacity!! Until 60.000 km and 3 years the limit is 80%. Tesla warranty unfortunately beating Porsche with some margin here :(

Moreover there are a lot og recomendations and guidance on how to keep and have charge on the battery pack in order to maintain the battery. Maily regarding SoC and ambient temperature (no more than 30C for prolonged periods of time etc.).

More on the warranty..

They (Porsche) have the right to make partial repairs or exchange the whole battery pack to make sure the promised capacity can be accieved! If the maximum charge after the 3 years is 65% of the original capacity, they are entitled to make substitutions or repairs on the individual cells in order to obtain the guaranteed 70% capacity. To change cells or pack they have to remove the whole pack as far as I see the way they built it. Hopefully it won't be an issue..
