Reports have actually been swirling around about Porsche exploring the possibility of building a model that will match the extremely successful Tesla Model S. The Stuttgart automaker has remained quite mum on the topic, but then it has actually always preferred to keep things a trick as long as it can. Now, a new report claims that Porsche is hard at work on this task, which is internally codenamed the 717, and it handed down some information regarding its status. The source of this information is kept under covers, so it is tough to identify exactly what info is actually from the source and exactly what info Car pulled from thin air. Offering Porsche's love of secrecy, I am favoring the majority of Car's information being pure speculation. That stated, I put in the time to sort through all of it and pull out what I thought was on the mark, and add in some speculation of my own on the 717.
