Porsche Is Already Testing the All-Electric Mission E


​The all-electric Porsche sedan is set to go on sale before 2020.

Porsche, everyone's favorite sporting automaker, will build its Mission E all-electric sedan. The Mission E, first introduced as a concept in Frankfurt last year, is Porsche's first real step towards an all-electric vehicle in it's lineup.

According to a report by U.K. publication Autocar, sources say the Mission E has already started testing, using a Panamera-like disguise complete with tailpipes to hide its true EV intentions. Sneaky.

The Mission E will be purposed as a Tesla Model S rival, complete with a battery pack that will reportedly hold more than 330 miles, and have a 0-60 time of around 3.5 seconds.

Since pretty much anything from Porsche these days is a huge hit, we're expecting the production-ready Mission E to meet some high expectations.

Porsche Mission E on course for 2020 launch

Baby Porsche Panamera could be all-electric Mission E mule
July 28, 2016  MACNU

This baby Porsche Panamera mule – nicknamed the Pajun – could, in fact, be a development car for the future all-electric Mission E according to information received by Autocar.

Yesterday we reported how this mule proved development for the Pajun was back on track, following the shelving of the project in 2014. However, our sources have now pointed out that the anticipated arrival date of 2019 for the Pajun coincides with the planned launch of the production Mission E, which Porsche has confirmed it wants to sell before the end of the decade.

As a result, sources now suggest that, despite the fitment of exhaust tailpipes, this shortened Porsche Panamera mule is a forebear to Porsche’s first Tesla Model S-rival.

It’s not unheard of for car makers to fit parts to their mules in order to confuse onlookers. Sources suggest the tailpipes could be there to hide the true identity of what lies beneath the ‘cut and shut’ body.

Despite this latest sighting, Porsche has remained tight-lipped about the mule. Autocar sources are now convinced it shows the Mission E’s development has moved into road-based testing.

Technical specifications for the finished all-electric model are likely to include a lithium ion battery pack capable of providing the car with a range of more than 330 miles. In combination with two electric motors, the sleek four-door promises a 0-62mph time of just 3.5sec.
