According to Klaus Zellmer, president and CEO of Porsche Cars North America, the Taycan is drawing a lot of attention from Tesla owners, which is a pleasant surprise.
Talking to CNBC
during the LA Auto Show, Zellmer stated that out of “thousands” of potential US customers who have shown a “sincere interest” in the Taycan, Tesla owners are among the largest groups among non-Porsche owners.
“They currently drive a Tesla, they’re open to experiencing something new now. We’re very happy about that. We were actually surprised right from the get-go to see Tesla be so much in the foreground as a potential source of business,” Zellmer said.
Does this mean that they're stealing customers from Tesla? that might be a stretch, but it does show that not every Tesla owner is a die hard fanboy/fangirl.
