porsche first revealed its plans to release a tesla rival sports car back in 2015, and we can now reveal that it is likely release three electric all-wheel drive versions as early as 2019. according to automobile, 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 german-automaker’s ‘panamera‘ sports car, with an elongated profile to accomodate two passengers in the rear. back seat occupants can enter through rear-hinged coach doors, opening up to create a dramatic passageway to its luxurious interior.

  • You need new pix! the actual car has already been photo-ed on the road; looks more like a jr. panamera. great tech, but meh styling……

  • Wow – a whole full second quicker?! Does it come with a codpiece for the driver?
    P stepped on their member introducing the Panamera. Is this the recovery? This has a nice profile but the squashed look from the rear looks too much like an enlarged Cayman. (another error..)

  • The looks are amazing! Spot on! Comparing it with the Panamera is an overstating comment. This new design has a place of its own. More emotional (for the viewer) and flowing lines, more practical for ‘normal’ people who drives them. Try to stick ‘old uncle Ben’ or ‘Granny’ in the back (hole) of a 911, and you’ll know what I mean. Even more powerful engines will equip this electric Porsche in the future. But the concept is simply… wow! The only downside is still having to wait 20 minutes to charge up to 80%. That will change soon, the battery industry is working on the clock to maximize them, soon you’ll only have to wait a few minutes until it’s done.
