Tesla Trolls Porsche With New Supercharger

Tesla says it installed a Supercharger near Germany's iconic Nürburgring race track.

The tweet comes amid an unofficial feud between Tesla and Porsche after the German automaker released its electric sports car this month.

"This word Turbo does not mean what you think it does," CEO Elon Musk told Porsche on Twitter last week.

On Tuesday, a heavily modified Tesla Model S completed a lap of the circuit almost 20 seconds faster than Porsche's new electric Taycan, the automotive magazine Road and Track reported.

The cheaper Taycan Turbo starts at $153,510, while the Turbo S clocks in at a whopping $187,610.
