You may not know of Thjnk, but if you read this website then you’ve seen their work. The German ad agency were the minds behind the ‘Welcome Challenges’ video that welcomed Porsche back to Le Mans with a video featuring Dindo Capello and giant smokey R18 burnouts. Seems they’re not at a loss for sass following the hard-fought Le Mans victory and have now “welcomed” electric car manufacturer to their new home in Jungfernstieg with a snarky billboard featuring the A3 e-tron.

There are exceptions though, usually limited to R8, RS 7 and also the A8/S8 range.
