Porsche Mission E Unveiled at IAA 2015

So you thought the new 911 Carrera was the highlight of Porsche’s booth at this year’s IAA? Wrong. They unveiled a new concept car which they had managed to keep under wraps until now called Porsche Mission E, boasting 600 hp of electric power.

The all-wheel-drive Porsche Mission E electric sports car is like the 918’s nerdy cousin, but it’s an impressive little thing with a range of 500 kilometers and a new 800-volts battery charging system called Porsche Turbo Charging which reduces charging time to just slightly longer than it takes to fill a car’s fuel tank today. In other words, Porsche has just solved all that is wrong with EVs today!

Porsche Mission E can be recharged to 80 percent of its capacity in just fifteen minutes. We wonder if it has wireless charging too. And while they’re at it, they should put a selfie camera on the car as well. The powertrain in this car consists of two permanently-excited synchronous motors (PSM) like the ones used in the 919 Le Mans Racer, which makes enable acceleration to 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and to 200 km/h in under twelve seconds. Oh Tesla, you are in so much trouble.

Another significant aspect of Porsche Mission E concept is its design, which seems to be a mix of Panamera and 918 Spyder. The four-door, four-seat grand tourer features matrix LED headlights and borrows styling cues from other Porsche models. The bonnet, for example, is from the 911, while the wide hips at the back come from 911 GT3. They say the E hints at the design of future Porsche models, and its 3D OLED instruments at what you can expect to see inside their cabins.
