Elon Musk on Twitter never disappoints, and today was no exception. Soon after the announcement of the new Porsche Taycan electric vehicle, Musk sent out this tweet.

The Porsche Taycan will be releasing both a Turbo and Turbo S trim which will have a dual-motor AWD setup with 670 and 750 horsepower, respectively. In comparison, the Model S Performance features a dual-motor AWD setup with 762 horsepower and 100 kWh battery with an estimated 345-mile range. The Taycan Turbo S will have a 93 kWh battery and an estimated 256 mile range. The Taycan Turbo, on the other hand, will get an estimated 279 mile range.

In a follow-up to his tweet, tech website Jalopnik snapped back at Elon with this tweet, to which Elon promptly replied and shot them down (pun intended).
