Porsche is presenting the “Mission E” concept car at the IAA in Frankfurt.
The Mission E concept car shows how Porsche envisions the future of the electric sports car. The passionately designed sports car with all-wheel drive develops a total power of over 600 hp. The driving range of the Mission E is over 500 kilo metres, and the innovative 800-volts battery charging system Porsche Turbo Charging reduces charging time to just slightly longer than it takes to fill a car’s fuel tank today. At the quick charge station, it takes just over fifteen minutes to provide enough charge for around 80 per cent of the total range. In keeping with the car’s purist interior, the control and display concept is intuitive with eye-tracking and gesture control as well as innovative functions.
The turbocharged three-litre flat engine in the 911 Carrera has a power output of 370 hp (272 kW). In the 911 Carrera S it even generates 420 hp (309 kW), thanks to such features as modified turbochargers. Also excellent is the significant increase in torque together with an improvement of just around 12 per cent in fuel economy. The 911 Carrera has a maximum torque of 450 Nm and the 911 Carrera S even has 500 Nm. This torque is available from a low 1,700 rpm over practically the entire engine speed range. At the same time, the new engines with their maximum speed of 7,500 rpm are very free-revving and passionate.
