I read the article. Point is: so what? Porsche can set goals and miss them, and? EV is important to Porsche, is it important like 911? Absolutely NOT! And that is the point. It is cultural thing.

Porsche is not going to abandon bread and butter for EV's, they have luxury of time to try different things. If you want to understand what Porsche is doing, first start from the fact that Porsche is basically playing game here. They are attempting things, and EV while important, they have luxury of time. On other hand Tesla will need several more decades to catch up in built quality with Germans.
