picked up a 4S. first time with Porsche. so far so good. dont have my home charger set up yet. getting range anxiety. not a lot of charging options in indianapolis.
Welcome to the forum @DrQ, congratulations on getting your 4S! Is it going to be a daily driver for you or a secondary car?

DrQ welcome. To allay your charge anxiety you ought to be able to plug the Porsche charger that came with the car into a 115 V outlet. It will take some time to charge. How do you charge the Tesla currently? There are adapters from Tesla to J1772 plug used by the Taycan.

That's a solid one two punch right there. I'm interested to hear your thoughts about how they compare to each other.
I have 8 months left on the tesla lease. I think overall the tesla app and charging network are superior, but the fit, finish, quality of the porsche is outstanding. performance wise, thus far, I dont feel a huge difference. both are fast and fun. also, aesthetically the taycan is gorgeous and model S is dated.

Congratulations on the new car, and welcome to Porsche ownership! Can we see some photos? Out of curiosity, why don't you just keep using the Tesla charger with a TeslaTap (or similar) adapter, instead of installing the Porsche charger?

That's a fair comparison. There seems to me more kinks to iron out on non-tesla charging networks. Do you plan on getting another Tesla when the lease ends or will you just stick with the Taycan?

I have the porsche charger to be installed. the nearest electrify america charger is 25 miles.
Get a 240v 50 amp plug for your garage. It will charge that thing from 0-85 % in like 10 hours. Most nights for me I’m at about 30% battery left and it takes 5-6 hours to fully charge. It works and I do 135 mile commutes each day. I’ve yet to hit a Charge point or Electrify America charger and I have 2400 miles already

I do. I have a deposit on the tesla cyber truck and I intend on purchasing it whenever it debuts.
