a lot of the wiring changes in the model 3 and Y are to make the car faster and cheaper to manufacture. They’re far more advanced than the model S. That doesn’t necessarily translate into anything meaningful to customers. But I am a big fan of any operational improvements to keep them in business. Their Achilles heel and one of the few competitive advantages VW group has. I expect Porsche to produce more vehicles more easily at vastly higher build quality than the Model S.We all know Tesla is the leader in smallest length of wiring harnesses. That 4500 pound Porsche probably has 300 pounds of wiring in it. Tesla Model Y is supposed to be down to 20 pounds.
Theoretical labratory fast charging is great, but Porsche’s US charging network is basically a bunch of 50 kW chargers. Only Tesla has a natoinwide network of 150 kW chargers which are all being upgraded to 250 kW.
