Porsche Mission E: The Tesla-Killer Porsche Has To Build

Porsche’s Tesla-fighter is real. At least, it is in very sexy concept form. This is the Mission E Concept and we’re in love.

Two electric motors similar to the ones used on the 919 Hybrid race car turning out more than 600 horsepower. Power going to all four wheels via torque vectoring system. An estimated zero to 62 mph (100 km) time of 3.5 seconds. One of the sexiest, most futuristic designs we’ve seen since the BMW i8 came out.

Yeah, I’d say Porsche means business here.

The max range from the 800-volt drive system is reportedly 310 miles. Perhaps what is most exciting about this concept is the quick-charging system Porsche plans to use. The company claims the Mission E can reach an 80 percent charge, good for 250 miles of range, in just 15 minutes.

If that’s true — and my skeptical side calls it a big “if” — it’s a huge step for electric car re-charging, making it almost as fast and convenient as filling your tank with gas.

A decision on whether Porsche will build the car is expected by the end of this year, and it it gets greenlit, it won’t hit the streets until 2019 at the earliest.

That’s fine, Porsche. We can wait.
