Not quite the plug-in Porsche I desire... 


Car has been sluggish to start in recent days with not much use, and refused to start completely this morning. I'm not sure when the old battery was fitted. Bit the bullet and fitted replacement battery and a quick access Ctek adaptor - quick and easy job.


Car started first time so will keep an eye on it once fully charged and check the alternator readings as well once the battery is fully charged - hopefully the alternator isn't on the way out
