Polestarcars who are now offering the hybrid Polestar1 and the fully electric Polestar2 don't have anything to do with the older Polestar Engineered cars and I question if they have any saying in the new Polestar Engineered branded model. Afaik the brake upgrade is not the same as the brakes used on Polestar cars and the Ohlins dampers probably only carry the name because Ohlins had some saying in the development but I wonder if the dampers are actually produced by Ohlins or serialised by a contractor just like the other Volvo parts. The Polestar badge is just a Volvo branding thing and even the Polestar tunes aren't showing any signs of a sportivity pursuit anymore. Yes there is some gain but the driveline "optimisations" do not have that crispy soul anymore. Where competing brands show progress in their engine lineup Volvo has chosen to freeze the specs or lower them when new emission regulations require them to do so. This until they go fully electric. The latest exhaust filter requirements for gasoline engine's also appear to have take a hit on engine/driveline feel. Everything feels choked nowadays.

Are you part of Polestar Holding AB or is that the other Polestar? I'm a fan or so I thought. But I've just been falsely accused by Polestar Holding AB for selling a counterfeit badge that I purchased from Keystone Volvo. Get this, I sold it a year and a half ago. Now someone in your employ decided to make a report to eBay and put a strike on my perfect eBay reputation of 20 years, without any proof or explanation. In the US, we call that libel when you carelessly and falsely damage someone's reputation. Looking forward to hearing your explanation.

This thread should be shut down. The last response from Polestar Official was around a year ago. Swedespeed is obviously not part of their social media effort.
