Porsche Mission E

Porsche Mission E concept

The Porsche Mission E is a concept car designed to preview what the next-generation of electric-powered Porsche sports cars might look like.

The exterior design of the four-door, four seat Mission E bears many references to the 911, and also the more recent Porsche 918 Spyder supercar. But at the same time it's a much bolder and more adventurous design than any recent Porsche. It is also fantastically good looking from almost every angle.

The Mission E is based on a newly developed platform conceived specifically around its electric drive system. However various elements of the Mission E's chassis, including the suspension, have been sourced from the next-generation Panamera. The floorpan is made from aluminium, high-strength steel and carbon-fibre reinforced plastic - a combination Porsche says will be reflected on the production version which could arrive in 2018.

Two electric motors - similar to the ones used on the 919 Hybrid race car - develop more than 600 horsepower and send their power to all four wheels via a clever torque vectoring system. It's performance is startling. 0-62 mph in just 3.5 seconds, and a driving range of 310 miles on a full charge. However Porsche's groundbreaking 800-volt quick-charge system, which can provide an 80 percent charge in 15 minutes, is good for 250 miles.

The lithium-ion batteries have been mounted low down in the car's chassis to reduce the center of gravity and improve stability. To improve the car's handling even further, the Porsche Mission E also features four-wheel steering.

On the inside, the instruments are intuitively operated by eye-tracking and gesture control, some even via holograms which are oriented toward the driver by automatically adjusting the display's angle to the driver's head position.
