It’s pretty clear by now that Porsche really wants a piece of Tesla’s crown. Not only has it got the Mission E and Mission E Cross-Turismo as potential cars to go against the Model S and Model X in the plug-in marketplace, but it too wants to build its own massive rapid-charge network for electric cars.

But there are a few differences between what Porsche’s planning and how Tesla operates its network. For a start, the power levels are different. Then there’s the matter of network exclusivity (Porsche says any EV could use its network).

And then there’s the sheer volume of Porsche’s rollout: five hundred 320 kilowatt DC quick chargers in the U.S. in just one year.

Will that mean Porsche becomes a Tesla competitor? Will it need to? And what lies in the future for Porsche’s network?
