Wings literally said what he said not because he loves Porsche.. but because he hates GM/Corvette. Its like despite all his "love Domestics.. support domestics " rhetoric only applies when speaking positively about Ford. He doesn't get that GM is a bigger foot print on DOMESTIC success than Ford. I won't even mention that GM employed his family and put him thru school. U won;t find a bigger dunce on the web. $10 says he not only voted for Trump.. but believes all of Trump's rhetoric.

Believing all of the rhetoric of any one individual is an intellectual fallacy, and does not indicate clear or rational thought. Also, discounting or trying to discredit any information that runs counter to an established bias you have is just sloppy thinking.  I will leave it at that.

The funny thing is I used to flag races at Mid Ohio, Nelson ledges and the like, and used to know a lot of guys in the Porsche Club and Corvette Clubs. It is a warm and friendly rivalry, and most Corvette drivers and Porsche drivers are complete gentlemen.

Making it an either/or dichotomy not only is intellectually sloppy, it is a discredit and disgrace to the people who actually own and enjoy the cars...and have the actual kahunas to drive them at speed on a track...

      It hasn't been a good week at Porsche. On Wednesday, German prosecutors raided around 10 facilities owned by Porsche as part of an investigation into three suspects over the diesel emission mess. Yesterday, the head of Porsche' powertrain development Joerg Kerner was placed under arrest by German police. A source tells Reuters that Kerner is being held because police believe his a flight risk.
      Kerner was one of three suspects that prosecutors were targeting during their raids according to a spokesman from the Stuttgart public prosecutor’s office.
      In a memo sent out by Porsche chief executive Oliver Blume, Kerner and the other two people are suspected of having knowledge that the engines developed by Audi had illegal cheat software. Blume would also confirm Kerner's arrest in the memo.
      “We reject these allegations and will do our utmost to clear up the matter,” said Blume.
      A Porsche spokesman declined to comment.

      Another day, another raid by German prosecutors into Volkswagen's diesel emission scandal. Yesterday, 160 investigators conducted searches in about 10 premises in Bavaria and Baden-Wuerttemberg owned by Porsche. Prosecutors said in a statement to Reuters the raids are part of an investigation into Porsche employees on charges of fraud and fraudulent advertising tied to the cheating software used on diesel engines.
      “The three suspects include a member of the management board and a member of Porsche AG’s higher management. The third suspect is no longer employed at Porsche AG,” said prosecutors.
      A Porsche spokesman confirmed the searches to Reuters, but declined to comment any further.
      On the same day, two Audi sites were also searched according to Stuttgart prosecutors and an Audi spokesman. The searches relate to another investigation dealing with the diesel emission scandal.

      XFC Reality - Xtreme Fast Charging
      Tesla is the current GOLD standard of EV auto charging. Their roughly 400 North American Charging stations handle 120-140 kWh charging that allows Tesla to brag about their 90 kWh battery packs recharging in 1hr compared to 10 hrs for a Nissan Leaf, 8hr for a Chevrolet Bolt if you home charge. Tesla's customers have had this perk and until now been able to brag about it. Tesla made sure they had this by using a proprietary plug that kept other EV auto's from using the Tesla Network.

      In comes IONITY, the European group consisting of Porsche, VW, BMW, Daimler and Ford. This is a 400 plus Xtreme Fast Charger network being built now in Europe. A 350 kWh network that covers from 200 to 920 volts at 350 Amps of charging that will allow EV Auto's to refill in 15 min or less. This allows EV auto's that need from 50 kWh to 350 kWh of capability to be handled by these new Liquid cooled Charging stations. The technological breakthrough is in the Charging cables that connect to your EV Auto. These are light, thin charge cables that remove the heat load by liquid cooling in high amperage use. These XFC system charge aproximately 20 miles of range per minute or 300 miles in 15 minutes.
      How Does This Benefit North America, Specifically the US?
      This is where the proprietary Nissans Charging (CHAdeMO) and Tesla interface are about to Lose the EV Charging race. The XFC interface uses the CCS (Combined Charging System) based on the J1772-2009 SAE standard. This has been adopted by pretty much every country in the world as the standard except China where they have this standard, Tesla and their own Chinese standard as the 3 plug types that have to be supported at this time. The US is expected to move forward with Nissan changing over in the near future.
      Porsche is installing 500 of their XFC chargers across the US at dealerships and various EVgo sites. There is also Electrify America, a subsidiary of VW and funded by the $2 Billion plus funding they have committed to for installing XFC charging across America in addition to all the EV charging infrastructure funding that was paid to each state in the settlements. From Level 2 to Level 4 (XFC) charging will get installed from inner city places to suburban and especially highway stops that can support long distance driving by EV auto's.
      The future is bright for the upcoming onslaught of EV auto's including the Electrify America's Chargers as shown below.
