Though there are quite a few electric cars available today, none are direct competitors of the Tesla Model S. We may see a true challenger from Porsche as early as 2018. Tesla CEO Elon Musk, when announcing that the company’s patents would be opened to other automakers, stated that Tesla’s true competition is not other electric vehicles but rather the flood of gasoline cars pouring out of the world’s factories. Though an admirable (and we think accurate) sentiment, Tesla one day will have to actually compete with rival all-electric offerings.
