Porsche Mission E

Forget Tesla.

600HP

4 door with 911 roof line (done far better than on the panamera)

charges in 15 minutes

zero emissions

Over 300 mile range

Not a Boxster, but a great alternative to a Tesla!

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














However, I think my dream 4 door Porsche is the Panamera Sport Turismo, May the restyle PLEASE look like this.

Those are all very good looking cars. Designed very tastefully. I'd drive either in a second.

all you need is an 800 volt charging station for the 15 min recharge

FWIW, I like the look of the current Panamera
that new one looks like a squashed SUV

I would have no problem driving that other than the purchase price. I showed the pics to my wife she said she would love to go get groceries in that !

Tesla wins either way - the best way to charge it in 15 mins is to dump the power from a $5,000 Tesla PowerWall.

It's actually a design from a few years back, before the Macan came out.

Which is essentially what it is, a Macan as a wagon, which many would argue the Macan is a wagon as is.

That being said what I really like is that no matter how much Porsche modernizes they hold their design cues.

I.E. Here is the 989 concept compared to the new mission E

These will be a dime on dozen on Ebay before you know it.

Chinese aftermarket will comoditize everything sooner or later.

I'm painting my Boxster this color!

One of the more interesting pieces of technology that I'm interested in is the side/rear view cameras. Not necessarily EV related, and not yet legal in the US (without standard mirrors). Wide angle-views projected just to the sides of the wheel would be nice. And yes, you should still turn your head to double-check!

I'm not surprised about this revelation after BMWs announcement last week. The future is clear and it is electric!

^ I think these offerings by BMW and Porsche just make the value of the Tesla all the more apparent (granted a relative word in the luxury segment). Musk said that the Tesla is the most expensive car most of his buyers have ever purchased. That's a good stat to own when Porsche prices this Mission E car like a McLaren. If you're trying to hit big numbers within the educated wealthy segment of high tech cars then you need to watch that sticker price. Porsche and Tesla are not shooting to stay at small fry boutique company levels.

nothing wrong with centerlocks. You just need a torque wrench for 350 ftlbs

if proper procedure is followed to the T, and it absolutely MUST be, there is no way you will gain a benefit in time spent removing CL wheels vs. the supposed rewards for these CL inventions on a road car. I still dont' get why they went this way on road cars...other than to make more cha ching on the sticker price. Everything gets more complicated... greasing the CL after each wheel removal, the extra cleaning, the more complicated procedure to simply flush brake lines, locking pin function that is affected by heat. CL must be a hoot on track days, especially for the techs doing CL inspections!

Generally speaking, it's A VERY BAD engineering idea to put something overly complicated on the wheels of a 600 HP car. I'd hate to be the guy in the car behind when an airborne CL wheel is coming towards my windshield simply because step #43 was done incorrectly by some just out of school tech at the dealership. But then of course those guys never make mistakes.
