Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for, CarFax,, High Gear Media, Torque News,,, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as,, and He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    Regardless of the article, one should know that the 911 has been such an amazing success story that only the similar success of the Model 3 and esp the Model Y have emulated.

    Porsche has sold FAR MORE THAN ONE MILLION 911s over half a century, actually almopst 60 years, DESPITE the fact that the car was always VERY EXPENSIVE. Such feats lesser makers achieve with worthless econoboxes. AND Porsche did it while making an average of $20,000 PROFIT PER 911 Sold.

    LIKEWISE, Tesla is the ONLY automaker to date that can make a BEV at a GOOD PROFIT, so good that it can afford to lower its price REPEATEDLY and as low as it becomes cheaper than a worthless CAMRY. AND its Model Y is now the BEST SELLING CAR IN THE WORLD.

    It proves to you that TRUE EXCELLENCE IS Rewarded AND that there IS Justice in the markets.

    Now let's see how high the Musk haters will jump on the above FACTS. (I did not post this JUST to make the fools jump, but it will be a nice little dividend). IF they are still allowed to post here, I have not seen their BS for a while.

    Jack Baruth was a great author, but I didn't like him. There were two group, those that loved Jack and those that disliked Jack. He was able to solicit response from both those groups by being devisive. Matt Posky tends to do the same, but over time he'll gain the writing skills of Jack.
