    Same here. That's why you are wrong. But don't worry... you've got time to catch up to me and the rest here.

    Now, I certainly wouldn't see the point in telling you that Porsche is not "the ultimate car company". I would instead welcome you to the 1980s.

    These record sales numbers.

  • So first off, how is that a record? That’s like me saying I can walk to my fridge in 30 seconds and then make it in 25. What record did I set?

    Secondly, wasn’t the initial target 40,000 units? Now revised to 20?

    Thirdly, a good portion of those 20,000 are still unsold on dealer lots, they’ve only been sold to the dealerships.
  • If the pandemic slowed down Tesla sales, just imagine what the 500,000 number would have been!

    Nope...see all the links above.
  • We can all agree that using EA chargers, the Porsche Taycan was able to achieve the best ever EV Cannonball run.
  • The shortest elapsed time, sure
