Three years ago, Porsche AG evaluated the idea of an electric car…today we are presented with the Mission E concept. As a long term Porsche enthusiast and Porsche Brand Ambassador, I have to admit, I was initially nervous. We all know Tesla has cornered the market in electric cars, and how on earth can Porsche enter this very niche market?
Well as time has gone on and Porsche AG started to recruit Mission E workers in Zuffenhausen, it’s got to be said that assuming the concept is close to production ready I am very, very excited!
I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a beautiful vehicle, with perhaps the exception of the Jaguar E Type or maybe the Aston Martin Vanquish.
I have already taken a number of deposits from equally excited customers and we really have no idea where the price point will be or indeed when we get to see the car, although I believe 2020 will be the launch year.
Over the course of the next few months I’ll be talking more about the technology and performance related attributes of this car. Despite being a little concerned 3 years ago at the announcement, this will launch Porsche into a new era of high performance cars with no loss of the all-important Porsche Passion!
