If you have a 4S on order, out of the two power levels Porsche offers for it (79.2 or 93.4) which are you getting?

(recap of the options)
"Though the 4S is one model, it'll be offered with two different power levels. The standard version has a single-layer, 79.2-kilowatt-hour battery, with 429 horsepower (522 hp on overboost in launch control) and 472 pound-feet of torque. The Performance Battery Plus option, however, has the two-layer, 93.4-kWh battery from the Taycan Turbo and Turbo S, delivering 482 hp (563 hp on overboost) and 479 lb-ft in this application."

Smaller one while assume lighter car is always better for wear and tear + driving.

Not sure it will be much lighter if you have smaller batteries. On the following site it says only 80kg less for the smaller battery version: https://ev-database.org/car/1238/Porsche-Taycan-4S-Plus

I asked the possibility to upgrade batteries later depending on new technology (solid state) and the answer was that they would have to maintain weight at the same level for homologation reasons if upgrades were possible in the future...
