Porsche has unveiled its first electric vehicle, the Taycan TurboElon Musk, however, is not impressed. This is not a mere matter of a man talking shit about his competitor. He has a legitimate gripe, because words do indeed mean something.

An electric car simply cannot be turbo. As Autotrader explained, "A turbocharger is an add-on part that uses recycled exhaust gases to — quite literally — boost an engine's performance." This is not possible for an electric vehicle, which by design does not produce any exhaust.

The Porsche Taycan Turbo is undeniably fast, boasting an impressive 670 horsepower and a top speed of 161 mph. But even if that thing hit the speed of light, it would never actually be a turbo.

Victory, Elon Musk.
