Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Lots of Mercedes in the Tesla platform geometry, electrical parts, safety systems, etc. (At least for the model S.) But nevertheless he is selling a lot of them.

His motivation is certainly questionable; Musk obviously straddles the line between genius and insanity.

It seems pretty clear that Porsche have lost track of the fact that they sell a specialist version of a component part of a public transportation system. There's no utilitarian difference between a Porsche and a Toyota. That the basic structure of the transportation system is changing, and thus their position within that system also changing, has not occurred to them. Yet.

Sharing a charging station with a bunch of Fiats and Hondas is not going to provide the Porsche owner with the same class appeal as the Tesla-only stations provided by the competition.
