So James Stephenson, a Tesla investor, took to Twitter to compare the sales numbers of the Tesla Model S, 3, and X with those of the "Tesla killers" Audi e-tron, Jaguar I-Pace, and the Porsche Taycan.

Now of course Tesla is still out selling everyone else at the moment but I'm a bit surprised at the arrogance of these Tweets. It's not a good look for them with the rest of the competition like Porsche starting to mobilize with production.

I don't understand why the pro-Tesla folks are anti-everything else. Why can't we enjoy them all?

I could care less what others think about what I drive. Come to think of it I could care less what they drive.
As a investor Stephenson is going to say whatever it takes to keep his stock from tanking and using the Model 3 as a example of sales volume is hilarious. The Model 3 is the Volkswagen Beetle of EV’s. It will not even be in the same class as the Taycan.

No kidding, I get that they want to show everyone that they're still the top seller but when they do stuff like this it starts to smell like desperation.

It's just disappointing actually. That not only Audi, Jag, MB and now Porsche cannot build what Tesla has is sad. Their dealerships have also told KBB they don't want to sell EVs (they don't make $ on them.) People keep saying these legacy ICE makers will clean Tesla's clock once they start making competition. But they aren't even getting close to competing based on specs per $.

I mean, we are here arguing the Taycan vs. the Model 3P. It's not 100% clear, but the performance of the $55k 3P would require the $135k version of the Taycan to beat or match it.

Hence, the "taycan't" attitude out there. Oh, and I have driven the autobahn multiple times. It SUCKS. That much variability in speed means if you have the fast car, you are always braking and if you don't you are always getting run over. Having a top end over about 100-110 consistently used is a fantasy.
