So yesterday Porsche took the Frankfurt Motor Show by storm, unveiling a brand-new electric sports car concept, called Mission E, that is as fast as a Ferrari 488 and three times charges up faster than any other EV in the world. Now Jon Sibal has been playing the looks of this car, designing a fantastical Porsche Mission E RS Widebody.

What Sibal has done is take the standard Mission E, buff up its fenders, install a virtual set of BBS alloys, and fit a GT3 RS wing at the back. And just like that, we have a Porsche Mission E RS that could potentially make the Tesla Model S crap itself. We are particularly drawn to those wide hips at the back. That is such a sexy shape.

The thing about the Mission E is, Porsche may not get around putting it, or something like it, into production for the next five or six years. It is a huge undertaking mass producing an electric car, especially one that can be fairly categorized as a super car. That means the market will be limited, the price would be extremely high, and the whole thing may not make business sense.

But one thing is for sure. The amazing 600-hp electric powertrain in the Mission E and its advanced battery pack which can be charged to 80 percent in just 15 minutes, will be used in form or another in Porsche’s more mainstream hybrids and EVs.
