CNBC Pro: Porsche is now more valuable than VW: Here’s what the pros think of the carmakers

A week after its stock market debut, luxury automaker Porsche’s market cap raced past its former parent company Volkswagen Group’s.

Some fund managers are already comparing the German firm to Tesla, the largest electric carmaker in the world, saying Porsche’s electrification plan for its hot-selling Macan EV is expected to be an instant success.
