Porsche Charging $1,700 For One Fucking Battery!

Illustration for article titled Porsche Charging $1,700 For One Fucking Battery!

Porsche knows its customers are mostly overpaid, insecure idiots willing to fork over as much as they're asked. "Uhh... yeah, $1,700 for a lithium-ion starter battery sounds right." Even better, you'll still need a lead-acid battery for winter. [MotorAuthority]

Around here $1700 gets you a newish battery with a somewhat battered Civic CRX wrapped around it. And when the battery wears out, you can get a new one for $80 and you still have a tossable little car.

It might be a fabulous drive, but it's probably beyond my capacity to control without a fair amount of training. And even then, I couldn't use it day to day.

Cracked battery case pipe.
