Porsche's response to Tesla? An electric supercar with 483 km range + 670 horsepower
New information and visuals have been released on the internet regarding Porsche's attempt at an electric supercar. The german automaker is likely releasing electric all-wheel drive viehcles as early as 2019. The German-automaker will launch three ‘mission e‘ derivatives with 300 kW (402 hp), 400 kW (536 hp) and 500 kW (670 hp). It will feature a two-speed transmission and reach 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, with a maximum speed of 155 mph (249 km/h).
Porsche’s all-electric ‘mission e’ will boast an acceleration time of just 3.5 seconds from 0 to 60 mph, which is a full second slower than the quickest Tesla ‘model S’ currently on the market. The four-seater will feature inductive charging (without a cable) and it could reportedly charge to 80 percent in just 20 minutes. Details have yet to be revealed on exterior styling, however dimensions-wise it appears to be similar to the panamera sports car.
