Default Porsche ordered a Tesla Roadster

Now THAT's interesting news...

Porsche places order for Tesla Roadster

Posted Nov 25th 2008 at 7:58AM by Jeremy Korzeniewski

Uh oh. Rumors suggest that Porsche isn't all that impressed with the all-electric lithium-ion powered 911 from longtime tuning company Ruf. Not that the German automaker is giving up on electric sportscars completely or anything... in fact it's quite the opposite. Porsche is developing its own electric machine without the help of any outside companies, at least in the traditional sense. According to Tesla Motors, officials from Porsche have stopped by to take a good long look at the Roadster. It seems that they were interested enough to place an order for one of the $100K-plus electric sportscars, though Porsche will have to wait its turn just like everyone else that has put down their deposits. One can only assume that the car will be put through its paces, compared with models from the German automaker's own stable and summarily taken apart bit by bit just to see how it all ticks. Sounds like we won't be waiting too long for a Porsche versus Tesla run 'round the 'Ring after all.

Why not?

By the time Tesla delivers it they will be in one of 3 places

1: Out of business

2: Bought out by Porsche

3: Not even building the Tesla anymore and onto something completely different, perhaps nuclear powered waffle irons.

they've shipped 50 customer cars and are building them at 10 per week. granted, that still leaves a lot of the 1200 pre-orders unfilled but that's a non-negligible number.
