Porsche Taycan 4S according to the EPA measurement has a range of 203 miles or 327 km. These numbers refer to the Performance Battery Plus version that wears a 93.4 kWh battery. But the difference with the official measurements of the German company is big.
Thus, Porsche announces that with the Performance Battery Plus package, the autonomy amounts to 463 kilometers per charge or 278 miles. What is more surprising, however, is that the first tests of Taycan 4S on American soil found that Porsche Taycan 4S range is significantly greater than announced by the EPA.
Matt Farrah took a Taycan 4S with the large battery and driving it for 24 hours in normal traffic conditions and with the air conditioning turned on, the car achieved 444km or 276 miles of autonomy. What makes a bigger impression is that the car still had 29 km of extra range.

Description from YouTube channel TheSmokingTire :
The Porsche Taycan 4S is new for 2021, and it’s the “volume model” for the USA, meaning, because of its versatility, with two battery options and multiple performance options, it’s the one most American buyers will get. The EPA rated range for the Taycan 4S is 203 miles. This number, like the EPA rated range for the Taycan Turbo S, 192 miles, is not exactly representative. Porsche does not dispute the EPA number; manufacturers are given several options for tests, and Porsche chose the most conservative option. But this is not the range we experienced. In this video, I am given a brand new production model Taycan 4S and decide to test the real world highway range for myself.
