Who is going to man enough to take down Tesla? It certainly is not going to be the bureaucracy over at General Motors.
That is about as crazy as a Microsoft Surface Tablet taking on the Apple iPad and succeeding, maybe a noble effort but doomed to failure from the inception.
Agent001 has been testing the 2014 Porsche Panamera eHybrid along with the rest of the Panamera lineup in the Oregon countryside and says the first REAL contender has finally arrived in the form of the Panamera eHybrid.
With a 0-60 of only 5.2 seconds and a top speed of 167 mph the eHybrid brings the first creditable challenge to Tesla. Add to that the ability to charge the battery at speed and 440 HP it make you wonder who is schooling whom? Hmm great performance, full EV ability, AND the ability to ignore the plug? You got me.
Now lets not forget about the regular Panamera or the Turbo coming in 2014. Agent001 has the complete lowdown on these in the video below with exclusive real world footage from behind the wheel. Be sure to hang around for the bonus footage as the end.
