Another Tesla Fighter, the Porsche Mission E Concept

Tesla has revolutionized the industry of the all-electric powertrains with their models that do not have even a hint of a gasoline powered backup engine.  The statement given when asked about this alluded to the fact that Tesla is doing their thing well while others with EV offer only a small range and don’t seem to know what they are doing.  Even though that is not word for word what was said, it covers the gist of the bold arrogance that came out of Tesla motors which felt like a shot at other companies.

Performance. Sedan. The 2015 Porsche Panamera.

When it was first introduced the Panamera received a lot of skeptic and many who saw it couldn’t believe Porsche would go the way of the sedan. For many the thought was this would signal the end of the days of Porsche’s dominance in the world of high performance sports cars, but they were wrong. The look of the Panamera is enough to get anyone’s heart beating faster and the amount of power under the hood makes this outstanding four-door sedan zip down the road faster than many sports cars. It seems Porsche simply so no reason why all its cars had to be two-seaters and now allow more passengers to experience the awesome ride and performance of this amazing sports sedan. (more…)
