I'd love to have a manual transmission EV. While we're at it, pipe noise out of a speaker where the tailpipe should be and make it programmable to sound like a Hemi, Ferrari, Porsche, or LFA.Something of a "disciple of the obvious" point. When you have a new entrant its sales have to come from somewhere, so every competitor will "lose customers" to the new entrant. Would be better to look at which competitor. On an unadjusted basis, I think the manufacturer losing the most is Toyota. However, this isn't that meaningful. Toyota has the most customers to begin with. Adjusted for market share, I believe the brands losing the most customers are the super cars and the exotics, which of course makes perfect sense when selling a Veblen vehicle.
Note that Porsche is bringing back manual transmissions and describing the experience as "pure". So funny. Just what you want sitting in LA traffic.
It's not a Porsche then. DUH!Panamera e-hybrid with 31 miles of range at $99-194K... I think any Tesla still wins.
See the comment above.Something of a "disciple of the obvious" point.........
It's the Tesla hype they're up against, not just going electric.I guess if you really want a fast car you have to go electric.
No one said Porsche is outselling Tesla. What was said is that Porsche sales are up from last year. The Good Car Bad Car numbers are from April. Have a gander at a more current outlook:Doesn't matter if Porsche cars are selling more than Tesla, the fact is, Tesla has stolen a lot of their potential sales.
The point is, Porsche could have sold way more if Tesla wasn't around. You know how greed for the market is. We want all of it and don't want to share.
Sorry but that's false logic. It can't be quantified. Many Tesla S and X buyers are not generally luxury car buyers, and the quantity of them can't be proven either.The point is, Porsche could have sold way more if Tesla wasn't around. You know how greed for the market is. We want all of it and don't want to share.
