Not needed. All key performance EV components are outsourced from Rimac. Toyota could have done the same thing by contracting Rimac before VW had they actually believed in EV. Rimac does a lot of racing hybrid stuff and so on. Actually Hyundai has contracted Rimac to make performance EV as well so go figure.[Citation Needed]
Yes, but where is the proof the Taycan is a Rimac? I haven't seen that on any websites or from the automotive crowd on Twitter.Emission tricks in the car industry had no citation before they were exposed. Porsche had no citation when Toyota production managers saved Porsche from bankruptcy.
it is just cost issue... those two gear transmissions are super expensive, i assume because they have to be able to withstand all that torque.The gearbox part we can thank Elon... Maybe when Tesla return with a gearbox we all can get things right again.
Interesting that you should use this particular example, for that was precisely the subject of perhaps the most widely-viewed Kaizen Factor story I've written (thanks to Jalopnik picking up the story): Porsche: Toyota's star pupil? I wrote that almost a decade ago, and it was essentially a commentary piece on a Bloomberg Businessweek story that I referenced, cited and credited extensively.Porsche had no citation when Toyota production managers saved Porsche from bankruptcy.
I wonder if its still there, I would stop by. The wheels are super interesting, seems make of the spokes are filled with plastic between them.I was able to check one out in person at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta 2 weeks ago. I was lucky enough to sit in it as well. Very very cool vehicle...pictures don't do the shape justice.
It was there on 9/19!I wonder if its still there, I would stop by. The wheels are super interesting, seems make of the spokes are filled with plastic between them.
