Porsche EV Model, Will Directly Compete with Tesla Model S

Porsche EV

Yesterday our source gave us some real interesting info which should put Tesla in a serious disadvantage: Porsche is working on an electric sports car, targeting at the Tesla Model S. Below image is the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo concept (not the EV we are talking about).


The Porsche EV sports car we’re talking about will be smaller than its Panamera. This new model is previously rumored to be called the “Pajun”. Fierce competition in the mid-size luxury sports sedan lets Porsche make the decision that the smaller sedan to be in the form of pure EV only.

Toyota RND Is Just A Joke

Two days ago the Toyota UK division posted a mysterious photo indicating a “RND Concept” is coming on its way.

BMW 340i Is Coming This July

BMW 340i En Route

We all know the current 2015 Mercedes-Benz C400 sedan has 329hp, and the Audi S4 also comes with 333hp, this naturally puts the current BMW 335i into a disadvantaged position when speaking of the engine output, which is “only” rated at 300hp.

Introducing The 911 GTS Club Coupe

It may not be a special year for Volkswagen or Porsche, but it does a special year for the Porsche Club of America, which is its 60th year since its establishment.
