The cars silhouette is still unmistakably Porsche, but the new concept Mission E is radically different from anything that has ever been released. The unveiling of Mission E at the AAI in Frankfurt has the same influential significance on the future of sports cars as the unveiling of the original 911 over 50 years ago.
All-wheel drive and all-wheel steering, a purely electric range of over 500 kilometres, 80% of the maximum charge level in less than 15 minutes, acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds or less, and 600 hp system output.
Porsche have infused the trends of digitalization and sustainability with performance. The instruments are intuitively operated by eye-tracking and gesture control, some even via holograms – highly oriented toward the driver by automatically adjusting the displays to the driver's position. Mission E can also be charged in the owner’s garage through wireless charging technology. The new innovative technologies and design of Mission E will shape the future of electric sports cars.
Everything about Mission E is new yet typically Porsche. The two permanently excited synchronous motors (PSM) similar to the ones used in this year’s Le Mans-winning 919 Hybrid accelerate the sports car and recuperate energy. The front, with its extremely flat hood section, clearly shows the familial ties to the Porsche 918 Spyder super sports car. Distinctive front wings and an extremely low-cut bonnet are characteristic of the 911 design. "Porsche says the Mission E is how it envisions the future of electric sports cars. It looks like a cross between a 911, 918 and Panamera, which we have no problems with." autoweek.com
Porsche are exploring the limits with Mission E. Compact electric motors, no combustion engine, no exhaust system, no transmission tunnel, no wing mirrors, and a height of only 1.3 m but with space for four. A radical and ground breaking concept of the sports car of tomorrow – the new era.
