1. Porsche has been making dishonest marketing claims lately through some of its program heads (not its actual head.) The problem for Porches when it is less than honest is that it has some of the most educated and knowledgeable customers there are. Even if they are fanatics they know when their beloved make is lying to them and they know its a sign of lack of confidence. To be fair Porsche has a cannibalism problem foreseeable future, if it make the mission E as good as it should be (which it will have to stop the hemorrhaging and compete with Tesla) it will be signaling that its other vehicle lines are ready for the bargain bin. 2. On the contrary given how easy it is to beat petrol tech and given how much time Porsche has had its clearly holding back which screams compliance car. Its already known that it won't be the highest performing Porsche but given how late in the game it is then why even make it. Its just a place holder. The designers are being intentionally held back. Is that what the buyers of the Porsche brand want are they into pay a no compromise price for compromise- that's a brand destroyer. Its like learning a boxer was paid to take a fall. 3. We've seen early power train mach ups or prototypes and they have mechanical junk protruding into the trunk and frunk area way up- indicating countless design mistakes because in that they must still be trying to recycle their petrol parts bin making a hybrid that can't take gas vice an actual pure electric. No one need hydraulics and pumps and pulleys that is all extraneous crap. 4. The styling is questionable. I know Tesla borrowed the worst feature- the foreskin snake molting, crows feet slackened rubber front end, but they need to clean that up. So to be clear when I say its compliance type stuff, I am saying yes even if Porsche doesn't have the volume for the full compliance dance its really just another fake and its true compliance in that its trying to signal to its customers it could stay in the game if it had to but its still wrongly hedging. Porsche, you're warm up was 10 years ago, not 2 years from now. You're bringing a Blackberry to fight a 5 generation iPhone. Seems like the first real refresh of the S and X are just about out in a month or 2- you'll be getting hit there too. Right up to the refresh there has been no slackening of demand. Send your best engineers back to school or cash them out full retirement and replace with people with the right specialties, divest your petrol ties right down to your board and purge its investment influence. The house of Porsche is on fire, can't take your time.
