I just completed a round trip to Maine from Long Island, 330 miles. I averaged about 270 miles with ACC set at 70 and about 250 when set to 82 up in the 75 mph states. After now 4 DC charging trips in my career, I had the same experiences: It is a 30 minute event. The stations were 1.5-2 miles off the highways (5 minutes) and I charged for 20 minutes, getting 120-130 new miles.

Charged my 4S today and got the best range yet. 260 miles at 100% charge. That was all City driving. So far my range has increased from 192 on my first charge to 260 on my last. I've never driven in range mode yet. Will this Saturday as I going on a Porsche Club tour which will cover 234 miles. Should be interesting.

Very surprised to see the range on my 4S is still increasing. Today charged to 272 at 100%. Can't imagine it will get any more than that but I'll let you know on the next charge. Tomorrow is the Porsche Club tour. Total miles somewhere between 240-260.

Had my first long drive today in my 4S. 265 miles round trip. Stopped at an EA charging station on the way back with 47 mile range at 17%. Took 28 minutes to go from 17% to 82% with well over 200 mile range. It was a beautiful day and thoroughly enjoyable drive with 30 other Porsches including 2 other Taycan 4S. My 4S is a dream to drive.

That's why you're getting about 30 miles than my 4S. Wish I had the battery plus but I'll have to be satisfied without it. My longest rides are with the Porsche Club and they generally will be 200 miles or less so 269 works fine for me but being able to get to 300 would definitely be nice.

that 269 you're getting is probably in good driving conditions and the range will be reduced by spirited driving, cold weather, headwinds and geography. you will need to take that into account

I live in Georgia so the summer weather is quite hot and winters are kind of mild. The day I got the 269 I was driving between 75-85 mph with the air conditioning set at 70 degrees and both seat ventilations set on three.
