It all started with the reactionary reaction of Musk to Porsche, after the German company with its all-electric Taycan put in a sharp lap on the Nürburgring in 7 minutes and 42 seconds. At first, Musk mocked the Taycan's turbo name and then declared, "Model S at the Nürburgring next week." Now the Tesla S made it to the Nürburgring, and our spy photographers took it into action.
Tesla made a public call to Porsche as he drove one of his cars to the Nürburgring. But even if it "officially" faster than the current Porsche Taycan, this will not end well for the California carmaker. Elton Musk, CEO of Tesla, has prepared himself and his company at the highest level for failure.
Musk's reaction to the Taycan should have been to welcome Porsche to the electric car show or say nothing. Instead, he hires his young company, which mainly produces premium electric sedans, to work with a performance car company that has long been building incredible sports and racing cars and trying to beat them on a racetrack.
