It is common knowledge that important R&D departments and their technicians continue to be essential by learning all they can from the successes and mistakes of their rivals.

The latest evidence of that is the acquisition of a Tesla Roadster by the scientists of Porsche in Weissach, Germany. A spokesperson for Tesla informed Inside Line, "A Porsche senior engineer actually came over a few weeks back, and he was seriously analyzing the car in every detail."

The insider said that Porsche will have to wait for some time to take hold of a Tesla, as the carmaker is "pretty far down on the list of current orders."

In another incident, a German source has informed Inside Line that Porsche has not be quite satisfied with the lately tested eRuf , designed and produced by tuner Ruf and California specialist Calmotors utilizing a 997 911 Carrera frame and body crammed with lithium-ion units.

No one is giving details why Porsche is not satisfied with the car, which Inside Line tested and will report on soon, however Porsche is also working on its own lithium-ion-powered model.

It has been opened by Tesla that the first production of 250 roadsters planned for the European market for 2009 will come fully-loaded to the maximum with top of the line leather, a first-rate audio package, painted carbon fiber and other anticipated high-class accents, all typical in the €99,000 starting price ($124,000).
