Porsche are preparing to enter the electric car market, but before they do they’re seemingly entering into mind games with with some of their soon-to-be rivals.
Tesla are an easy target. They’ve already rolled out a handful of lucrative electric cars, setting benchmarks and raising all kinds of stakes in the process, but they’re yet to turn a profit, despite CEO Elon Musk’s endless promises.
And now a Porsche product manager has taken their forthcoming Tesla Model S for a spin, a car which is Tesla’s first vehicle aimed at the mass market, and dismissed it as “a facade.”
“Our Electric Porsche Will Be Better”
In stinging criticism, the unnamed product manager compared the Model S to his brand’s upcoming Mission E, saying of the impending Porsche: “You’ll be able to run it hard, over and over; the battery will not overheat, the power control module will not overheat, and the seats will not suck.”
The Porsche product manager is stoking the flames of a bitter rivalry, and the company plans to roll out their EV’s by 2020.
Porsche will also invest around $1,120,000,000 in factory upgrades to keep up with demands.
What Do We Know About The Porsche Mission E?
Not a great deal is known about the Porsche Mission E. It will be able to develop a huge 600bhp, and is expected to have a driving range of 310-miles.
Sources say it will be quick, and have an astonishing recharging time of just fifteen minutes.
Porsche chairman Wolfgang Porsche said that the car will define which direction the brand plan to take in the future.
“Even in a greatly changing motoring world, Porsche will maintain its front-row position with this fascinating sports car.”
He believes that words can take on a transformative aspect and wants to help people make better decisions today.
His influences as a writer include Hunter S Thompson and Jack Kerouac, while among his interests outside writing are music, art, foreign films and football.
He’d one day like to own a Tesla, and still holds a candle for the Ford Capri.
