Okay, but if I bought an American car that would be "foreign" too.
I really like American cars, but their fuel consumption is enormous. In my country, with emission based taxes, buying an American car is incredibly expensive. Apart from that, they're not popular in Europe due to the huge fuel consumption (fuel prices in most European countries are much higher than in the USA), the size (many Europeans prefer smaller cars, many towns are older with narrow roads) and the unavailability of manual transmission and diesel engines. There are quite a number of reasons why American cars are hardly exported to countries outside North America.
Gotcha I will take my tesla model s elsewhere then lol.. Zero emissions.
Haha my 69 camaro with the 396 big block gets less than 10mpg. Do I care though? Nope !
Ford is alao the only company with a car nicknamed the crowd smasher :p
Well, I can't buy American made, because they don't sell them here.
That is sad Do they even have roads in Antarctica?
Kia and Hyundi have made a lot of progress over the last decade. Pretty impressive
Absolutely, I drive a New age Verna and it's fab
the german automotive industry is dying right now anyway, cause merkel has decided we're not gonna build any more combustion engines and china doesn't send us the needed parts for our EV industry to thrive. meanwhile merkel also decided to kill the electrical energy production industry as well. so yeah. germany is dying to ideological goals right now.
And if you look close enough, Merkel is roaming the streets at night, deflating all the car tyres. Are you trying to be the drama queen of Germany? We will always have a successful car industry, people all around the world want to buy our cars. And that will continue with electric cars. See here: www.spiegel.de/.../porsche-elektro-taycan-ueberholt-den-klassiker-911-a-1852728e-9a6d-4971-9e47-dafd6e0d19b2
@DryGermanGuy no but killing the combustion engine and electricity production in Germany at once by introducing co2 tax and by having a strict anti combustion engine policy despite the possibility of having co2 neutral fuel... Like what would she have to do so you say that she thew a wrench in the works of the German industry... I guess you're living under a rock. Asian companies and Tesla are currently laughing at the German industry cause they have at least 10 years of r&d in electric vehicles plus actually working supply chains. Go take a look and see how many cars VW built this year. They are literally dying. Cause they can't even continue to develop their new EVs thanks to dead supply chains.
@DryGermanGuy also the news article you quoted is so facepalm for the argument you're Making. Of course an electronic Porsche will be quicker. That's in the nature of electric motors... You should rather look at sales and production numbers. Cause that will show you what's happening in the industry.
Yeah, I am sure, a company selling ~10.000.000 cars per year is literally dying. Suuuure. They had the Diesel motor scandal (their won making) and - as all manufacturers - CoVid. And as they had decreased sales with other crises (2000, 2008), they will have increased sales the following years. Your concentration on short-term drama makes no sense. I say it again: The German car industry will always be successful.
Errrmmmm... Neither the article nor me wrote anything about "quicker cars". Seriously, what the hell? The article states that the electric version of the Taycan is *selling* like crazy, overtaking the sales of the petrol 911. Overtaking, as in greater sales numbers, not racing. And I remember well the naysayers/experts that gave the opinion, Porsche could/should not build electric cars. Well, they can, successfully.
