This is not and in no way have anything to do with the turret being a Porsche-built. The turret is made by Krupp. NOT Porsche-built

You are absolutely correct. The initial design was misleadingly named "Porsche" even though it was of a Krupp design. We have added clarifications to the caption to hopefully stress that fact.
