Car Shipping Carriers has the scoop on the Porsche electric car rumors. The rumors of an all electric Porsche that is set to compete with Tesla is finally unveiled as the Porsche Mission E. This new Porsche Mission E concept car is a extremely stylish four door sedan that is going to make companies think more about the car than the features it may have. Porsche is taking a different approach with this vehicle. They want to differentiate themselves by focusing on the engine and handling than the internet and self-driving features that other auto makers are working on.
What they have come up with is stunning. By looking at the picture above this Mission E is taking cues from he 911 and 918 plug-in. The two doors for the back seat passengers are suicide doors which make the vehicle look even cooler. Powering this beauty is happening by two permanently excited synchronous motors (PSM). These two motors together will push out 600 horsepower. With that power the Mission E is looking to hit 62 mph in just 3,5 seconds. It is not as fast as the Ludicious Mode for Tesla, but the battery is better. Porsche is opting for an 800-volt drive system. Most companies are using a 400-volt system. Because Porsche will use the 800-volt system they will be able to achieve a faster charge time and it uses smaller wires which will help reduce the weight of the vehicle. Porsche has claimed that the Mission E will be able to have a near full charge is as little as 15 minutes. Also, the charge port will be behind the right front fender which is different than most vehicles. All of these features Porsche has opted for are helping them achieve their differentiation they are looking for.
Inside of the vehicle the look is a minimalist approach which is sleek and looks fantastic. All of the gauges are LED screens and a touchscreen in the center console. Another cool feature that they will have is having the ability of configuring the vehicle externally through a tablet.
As of right now the Mission E is just a concept car, but it seems as if the look and many of the feature should be present on the actual car when it is produced. The electric supercar world is getting competitive. We are looking forward to seeing more and more vehicles take the electric approach and make the world a faster, yet green planet.
