Porsche Mission E, Porsche is behind

Tue Sep 15, 2015 8:55 am

So rumors get somewhat more real. Porsche is trying to catch up.

http://newsroom.porsche.com/en/products ... 11391.html

Note that this is a concept car, not a real production car. You might able to buy something like this in a year or four.

It is slower than a Model S. More range.

More range is still uncertain. They are not talking about specific cycles.

Since the car will take a few years to build - Tesla's range would have increased too, anyway. They'll have to catch a moving target.
1st Leaf : 2/28/2011 to 5/6/2013
2nd Leaf : 5/4/2013 to 3/21/2017
Volt : 3/25/2017 to 5/25/2018
Model 3 : 5/10/2018 to ?

It will also likely be much more expensive that the Tesla... And probably less reliable.

Might want to change the thread title, now that it's got a name. via GCC:
Porsche names Mission E the Porsche Taycan; doubling investment in electromobility by 2022 to €6B; €500M for Taycan & derivatives
http://www.greencarcongress.com/2018/06/20180609-porsche.html

. . . Series production of the first purely electric Porsche is set to begin next year. The vehicle, previously operating under the working title "Mission E”, has now been given its official name: Taycan.

Two permanently activated synchronous motors (PSM) generating a system output of more than 600 horsepower accelerate the electric sports car to 60 miles per hour in well under 3.5 seconds and to 124 miles per hour (200 km/h) on the track in less than twelve seconds.

The Porsche Taycan will also offer a consistent level of power; multiple launches in a row will be possible without a loss in performance, and the vehicle’s maximum range will be more than 300 miles (483 km) as measured in accordance with the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). . . .

So, figure low to mid-200s EPA. IEVS article on the same topic claims base price like an entry-level Panamera, around $85k: https://insideevs.com/porsche-taycan-everything-we-know/

The 'best' is the enemy of 'good enough'. Copper shot, not Silver bullets.
