The first couple videos of the futuristic Porsche Mission-E Concept have just been released as the car celebrates its debut at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015. Created to preview a potential all-electric rival to the Tesla Model S, the Mission-E Concept is certainly a very, very interesting prospect.
The Porsche Mission E can be charged with enough energy for around 400 km more driving range in about fifteen minutes. It uses an 800-volt technology, double that of today’s electric vehicles. It can be charged via a port integrated into the front left wing or induction charged through a coil embedded into your garage floor. It features over 600 hp as well as an impressive 500 km driving range.
The Porsche Mission E accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in under 3.5 seconds thanks in part to its all-wheel drive system. It seems that Porsche have already estimated a sub-eight minute Nurburgring lap time owing to torque vectoring and all-wheel steering.
Visually, the Mission-E Concept takes obvious design inspiration from a number of other Porsche models yet still stands on its own two feet. At the front, the bonnet and front wheel arches are reminiscent of the Porsche 918 Spyder.
