Porsche Mission E spotted in production bodywork

Porsche’s future EV saloon has been spotted testing on German roads, in what is believed to be production bodywork.

Ever since the inaugural debut of the Mission E Concept at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show, potential customers have been eagerly awaiting the production example. As these pictures show the design hasn’t strayed too far from the original, futuristic concept. The productions car retains the low, sleek profile, low bonnet line and full width tail lights. However, the rear suicide doors apparently didn’t make the cut.

Whilst figures for the final production car are yet to be confirmed, figures for the concept car are impressive. The Mission E is expected to have 593bhp, courtesy of two electric motors and will tackle 0-62mph in less than 3.5 seconds and 0-124mph in under 12 seconds. The concepts electric range is rated at 311 miles and combined with an 800-volt charger unit, will see 80% charge after just 15 minutes charge.

As Porsche stride towards electrification they are determined to not stray too far from their roots, as Chairman of the Porsche Executive Board, Dr. Oliver Blume highlights. “Even with solely battery-powered sports cars, Porsche is remaining true to its philosophy and offering our customers the sportiest and technologically most sophisticated model in this market segment.”
