All-electric Porsche Mission E now one step closer to release

High-performance automobile manufacturer Porsche is now one step closer to releasing the Mission E, its four-door electric sports car, as the vehicle has entered the final phase of development: full-body prototype testing. 

The Mission E was first showcased as a concept at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, but the manufacturer is thought to have since made a lot of changes to its spec – both technical and in terms of equipment – ahead of its planned debut in 2019.

Porsche’s £100,000-ish Mission E concept featured a two-motor setup, producing 590bhp and driving 663lb ft of torque to the rear wheels. The firm is also expected to release a four-wheel-drive model, which will be priced a little steeper.

The vehicle – codenamed Project J1 – is still yet to be assigned a plush vanity name, reports Autocar. Porsche has, instead, focused its attention on calculating an annual sales target for when production is ramped up – 20,000 units.

That may seem a little optimistic, but when you consider the attention Tesla attracted with its high-performance Model S P100D, it doesn’t seem too far-fetched; there’s clearly a market for mind-bogglingly fast all-electric sports cars.

Do you like the look of the concept of Porsche’s all-electric Mission E? Do you think it will be able to compete with the Tesla Model S P100D? Be sure to let us know over on Facebook or Twitter @TrustedReviews.
