Production Porsche Mission E To Be Called The Taycan

"It's a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomizes freedom". And that's not a bad thing.

In addition to the new name, Porsche doubled down its investment in electrification Friday. Porsche adds that the auto will also offer consistent power levels "unprecedented among electric vehicles: multiple launches in a row will be possible without a loss in performance, and the vehicle's maximum range will be over 300 miles as measured in accordance with the New European Driving Cycle". Digital projects, such as networking via Porsche Connect and data security using blockchain in sports cars, will also feature. "That is a deliberate decision because Porsche hybrids are synonymous with performance". The vehicle has a driving range of more than 500 km (310 miles) on a single charge under NEDC testing.

The Taycan will be the first of Porsche's electric models but the carmaker has big plans to go the electric way.

That means you might want to anticipate the arrival of a (partially) electrified 911. That's better than other high-performance electrics but certainly not enough for an all-out lap of the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife. Will that matter behind the wheel when you mat the gas coming out of a turn?


The company also marked the occasion by revealing a 911 Speedster Concept, an open-top version of its iconic sports auto. Electric motors produce instantaneous torque, pretty much the opposite of the dicey delay once associated with old-school turbocharged engines. The production electric vehicle will begin in 2020.

Porsche has been playing final performance figures close to its chest while showing off the Mission E, but with the official debut of the Taycan it's being a little more forthright as to what we can expect. Think almost two tons' worth of Porsche machinery.

Stay tuned for more updates on the Porsche Taycan.

That's all for the future. Today, the German automaker has announced that the Mission E will be sold as the Porsche Taycan. Porsche announced the name for its first purely electric series as part of the "70 years of sports cars" ceremony.
