    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.
