Porsche Mission E have come reality to show how the electric sport car can be. As says Porsche company Mission E represents the future, possible future and fascinating future. That is to say Mission E doesn’t just make one statement, but several at once. There is no doubt that it is a sport car, but it is not ordinary the sport car it is something powerful. The powertrain is wholly new, but it is based on technology tested in motorsports like each car of Porsche. Two main magnet synchronous motors (PSMs), similar to those in the 919 Hybrid that won Le Mans, propel the car and recover energy when braking. They catapult the Mission E to 60 miles per hour in less than 3.5 seconds, and to 124 miles per hour in less than 12 seconds.
Michael Mauer, Porsche design head said “The designers’ dream is for the Mission E to acquire a status similar to that of the 911”. The integrated aerodynamics are really impressive. Distinctive air intakes and outlets on the front, sides, and rear showcase the body’s comprehensive flow-through design.
Now it becomes evident that Porsche Mission E will be compared with Tesla’s cars. It seems Porsche took a few lessons from Tesla for its Mission E Model S alternative. Porsche now understands that Tesla offers more than a car. But Company EV Leader Stefan Weckbach has promised that the Mission E and Tesla cannot match at each other. The Model S can only hit its claimed 0-60MPH time “twice” in short succession. We Quoted his words: “Our core area of expertise lies in complex, efficient, and high-performance powertrains-just look at the 918 Spyder or 919 Hybrid”, “Fifteen minutes is an acceptable amount of charging time. And with 800 volts, it’s also feasible.”
