Those "Porsche fans" probably have never owned a Porsche. I and many other former and current Porsche owners also own Tesla. From what I can tell from reactions on Porsche forum many people there are disappointed of the Taycan. Don't think every Porsche owner is a jerk with a lot of free money to throw away for anything.
Downgrading range and performance on 85 battery cars.
Yeah, I have also owned several Porsche's over the years and am active on Porsche forums and regional groups on a daily basis. There's a 77 page thread about the Taycan impact on Tesla on one of the forums, and I have never heard anyone say or even imply that the Taycan is a "Tesla Killer". Fake news. There are plenty of Porsche owners for which Tesla is not a good fit, so you don't see glowing love for Tesla there, but that's very different. There is speculation about the impact of the Taycan and other EV's on Tesla, which is a very reasonable thing to discuss on any EV forum. BTW, many of those posters in that thread are currently Tesla owners.
As far as thinking we Porsche owners are Rich Jerks, I realize that trope exists but it's funny that I've never had that implied to me when driving one of my 911's over the past 20 years, but I have had that implied when driving my Tesla within the first year I owned it.
For customers it is kind of a poser thing. Like buying a Mercedes AMG G-Wagon, and only driving it to impress people when you are shopping in Beverly Hills.
Not sure anyone mentioned, too much to read. The electrify America chargers are open to everyone not just Volkswagen group of companies. It was part of VW deals with US government. In fact it is it's own corporation with ties to VW group. Part of settlement was VW could not brand it as their own, hence the name Electrify America. Wherever Porsche can charge so will Tesla. We still have supercharger exclusive to Tesla though.
