On Monday, Porsche introduced the Mission E electric concept sports car in the run up to the Frankfurt Motor Show. Porsche latest concept is a 600-horsepower, all-electric foil to Tesla’s groundbreaking Model S sedan. According the automaker, the Mission E will be powered by a pair of electric motors derived from Porsche’s 919 LeMans racers.
Aesthetically, the Mission E is hands down the best looking four-door Porsche we’ve ever seen. Porsche first crack at a sedan — the Panamera — proved to be controversial, and not in a good way. Fortunately, the Mission E won’t have to worry about that. It’s strikes a harmonious balance between the need to look like a Porsche and the requirements of the a four-door body style. The Mission E maintains the signature Porsche 911-esque rear design, but the designers have cut the roof line significantly to create a more sport low-slung look.
The Mission E is still just a concept car. Porsche doesn’t know if the Mission E or some version of the car will ever make it into production. However, if it does become reality, expect the production variant to arrive in showrooms around 2019, along with pricing.
