Porsche's (Germany's most prestige auto company) vision of the future is the Mission E, essentially a Tesla Model S with showcar wheels and Porsche nose substituted in. Same size, shape, body-style (4-door sloping rear like hatchback), price, performance, everything.

The nation that controls magnetism controls the universe. -- Chester Gould/Dick Tracy
