Erm...call me unenlightened, or just plain thick, but how can an electric vehicle be a "turbo" ??

 

That nomenclature is as pretentious and as clumsy as the car itself - sorry, but I think it is a hideous great lump!

 

A Porsche - any Porsche - can only really be a lithe and lightweight sports car, surely?

 

We could draw parallels with similar offerings from Bentley, Aston, etc, etc.

 

Ah well, maybe I should get out more...

Wouldn't call you anything Kev but 'Spot-on' mate.... :giggle:

In as much as I own an SUV myself, it would be tiny at the side of that behemoth!!

My Vitara does just what's needed of that type of vehicle....no more no less.

The 'Porsche' is just the usual 'willy waving' exercise! (for those that don't have one to wave!)....But have money to make up for it!.....Horrid! (and yes I didn't watch the video!!). :banghead:  :banghead:

Glad it is his project and not mine. Low riders are not my style.

Thanks, Jono.
