Porsche Won’t Plug in to Electric Cars Any Time Soon, But Plug-in Hybrids OK, Says Tech Boss

“Whilst we admire Tesla’s Model S sedan (we’ve even bought one to study) if we were to drive it at the permissible high speeds in Germany (like so many Porsche owners do), say from Munich to Frankfurt, the advertised range of around 430 kilometres would likely be severely reduced and potentially not enough charge would be available for the round trip commute,” he said. “I think it’s going to be at least five years before EV technology is where it needs to be, at least for Porsche.”
