Porsche Taycan is the production name for the Mission E EV

Porsche Taycan is the production name for the electric Mission E

The Porsche Mission E arrived nearly three years ago at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2015, signalling Porsche's "Mission" to embrace all things "E". It translates as "lively young horse" and is a reference to the horse that's been rearing up on its hind legs on the Porsche badge since 1952. So now you know. The production model will get the new Porsche Taycan name and be unveiled fully in early 2019, with customers taking delivery later that year.

But whatever name Porsche's first electric vehicle has, it still will be a big game changer for Porsche and, depending on just how well it performs in the real world and how much it costs, a big game changer for Tesla too. Porsche says a four minute charge will be good enough to deliver approximately 100 km (62 miles) of range. It is expected to have a range of at least 300 miles.

Second, driven in all-electric mode, the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid shows that Porsche has managed to retain its race-bred chops in an EV, largely down to a compliant but communicative adaptive suspension and an impeccably weighted steering feel. Tesla now has stores where its cars and solar products are sold, and soon will add fix centers, but they do not present themselves as traditional dealerships. However, strategically, Porche's Taycan will be rival to Tesla.

"Our new electric sports auto is strong and dependable; it's a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomizes freedom", Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, explains.

Cristiano Ronaldo's Real Madrid talks appear set for another completely predictable twist
The 33-year-old forward, who joined Madrid in 2009 from Manchester United, is preparing for the World Cup with Portugal. Speaking after the Champions League final last month, Bale said that he would "seriously consider" his future at Real.


Power for the Taycan will come from two electric motors that will generate more than 600 horsepower and likely provide all-wheel drive. The Taycan "will offer reproducible performance and a top speed which can be maintained for long periods", he said.

The German automaker announced it at the opening ceremony for the "70 years of the Porsche sports car" special exhibition at the Porsche Museum today.

Porsche both needs electrification to comply with tougher emissions rules and is embracing the technology because it allows for sporty driving that dovetails with the brand, he said.
