The Stuttgart-based luxury sports car manufacturer has recently announced it has decided to deliver a series production version of the acclaimed Mission E Concept, to be expected before the end of the decade.
This year during the Frankfurt Motor Show the German automaker, known for its iconic 911 sports car, shocked the audiences when it delivered the Mission E concept – which looks like a very futuristic take on the Panamera, but more importantly shows the automaker able and willing to fight the US-based Tesla Motors Model S luxury sedan. Now the news are getting even better as the prototype will not stay in that form for long, with the company mulling the introduction of its first-ever electric model based off the Mission E concept, which should dully inaugurate “a new chapter in the history of the sports car.” It also appears the Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen will also get a 700 million euro investment that includes the addition of a new assembly factory and paint shop and the new project will deliver at least 1,000 new jobs in the region.
Additionally, its engine plant will also need to be modified to cater for the production of electric motors, while more investments will follow across the board to cater for the project’s development. The Mission E concept will hopefully translate into the production series without too much tinkering when it comes to design and Porsche has said the dual electric motors will deliver a massive 600 PS+ (440 kW) output. That’s going to be enough to jump to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.5 seconds and reach 124 mph (200 km/h) in under 12 seconds. Range should be of about 500 km (311 miles).
