Porsche Mission E could spawn coupe and cabrio versions

Porsche Mission E could spawn coupe and cabrio versions”

Speaking of the Mission E's soundtrack, we're looking forward to finding out how Porsche aims to adress the mandatory EV soundtrack matter, if given the freedom to.

Returning to the Mission E, the Cross Tourismo concept we met at the Geneva Motor Show, which came in lifted wagon form, might not be the (only) production alternative to the body style of the "standard" Mission E, which you can see here. Stefan Weckbach, head of electric-vehicle development at Porsche, said recently that this will be the most extreme vehicle built on the platform. However, don't get too excited yet because even if Porsche does offer the rear-wheel drive system, it will most likely be offered on the entry-level models only. So don't think an electric Porsche SUV is happening... yet, but a coupe and a convertible could be in the cards.

According to vehicle and Driver, Stefan Weckbach, Porsche EV development boss revealed that the Mission E platform would be ready for a two-door coupe and convertible design. But with the potential configurations, not all versions of the Mission E will have the same four-motor, all-wheel-drive setup. "We're definitely discussing rear-wheel-drive options right now". It is possible that the parameters will be similar to the concept of Mission E. the latter received more than 500km cruising range and charging up to 80% of the auto takes 15 minutes.

Of course, more electric motors also means more power. The Mission E Cross Turismo produces in the vicinity of 440kW, giving it a 0-100km/h time of less than three and a half seconds and a top speed of over 250km/h.
