Porsche Takes Over Snowy Road To Test Mission E

Black Porsche 911 and Mission E

JAN 29 2018 BY CHRIS BRUCE 25

Porsche Mission E And 911

This Mission E looks a lot like a bigger, four-door 911 in these photos.

Porsche staged a semi-private test of its next-gen vehicles, including the Mission E and future 911, but spy photographers were able to catch the work underway.

Seeing the vehicles together shows their similar design DNA. The Mission E features flatter nose with a fascia that wraps farther around the front end than the 911. However, they start looking much more alike starting from the A-pillar because there is a comparable rake and flowing roof. The Mission E extends the top to allow for an extra set of doors, though, but both models feature a rounded tail.

According to a report from Auto Express, Porsche will target a 310-mile (499kilometer) range from the Mission E. The company’s 800-volt system will allegedly allow for getting 249 miles (400 kilometers) after less than 20 minutes of being plugged in. However, this will potentially only be from the firm’s proprietary chargers. The company will pack the EV with its cutting-edge driver assistance technology, including semi-autonomous capability. A holographic instrument display will possibly be an option, too.

Porsche will offer the Mission E in a variety of power outputs. The base trim will come with 402 horsepower (300 kilowatts) and will carry a price tag starting around $85,000. The mid-range variant will boast 536 hp (400 kW), and the range-topping model will have an impressive 670 hp (500 kW). All of these versions will have all-wheel drive, but the company will potentially introduce less expensive, purely rear-drive version later. More EVs will join the lineup eventually.

Fastest charging EV on the planet, but needing proprietary chargers to do so.. and not having any proprietary chargers in place.

I’m thinking that could be a problem.

It’s CCS the standard, Porsche happens to be the first manufacturer to use 800V 350kW.
Fast charging networks (planned to be built in Europe…) Ionity, Ultra-E, and MEGA-E will have “up to” 350kW “Ultra-fast” CCS-chargers.
Look e.g. here

Not really the fastest.
Tesla will have a MW charger out for their trucks. Im guessing that new vehicles like likely use that same charger.
How fast will it go? probably just shy of causing damage to the cells

I didn’t realize they were partnering with a Chinese company. At least I think they are, based on the oddly phrased English and misspelling of their own company name on that sign. :p

I didn’t realize they were partnering with an American company. At least I think they are, based on the oddly phrased English and misspelling.

Only Americans mock others for their English even though they can’t speak a second language. Typical ignorant American comment there.

I note that ignorant stereotypes are not limited only to Americans, evidently. Your ability to paint all Americans with a broad brush belies your pseudo superiority.

If you were a native English speaker what second language would you pick and would it be worth the effort?

The use is obviously smaller compared to learning English as a second language, as it is the accepted international lingua franca.
I think it is culturally enriching for yourself to learn a second language.
Some top candidates would be Spanish (spoken in most of south America, Mexico, Spain and other places), French (Spoken in quite a lot of regions in the world), both are also considered of most people as nice sounding (get the girls/ or boys :D). Chinese,
German and Russian are also interesting.

Or you may have a country or culture that you are interested in, so you may want to learn their language to read e.g. their literature in the original language.

Learning a second language is quite some work, but pays of (not necessarily in $$)..

First off, French, Germany, Russian, Italian, etc make little sense. The fact is, that they REALLY are losing any sense of worth around the planet. It is coming down to 3 top ones: 1) English above all. 2) Mandarin (not chinese). 2) spanish. Yes, Spanish and Mandarin are equal in levels to learn. I learned German and Spanish. Spanish because I lived in texas at the time, and it simply continued, and German because relatives spoke it. Though to be fair, they only spoke it when around family. If ‘English’ were around, we did not speak it due to WWII. One thing that Europeans really do not understand is that America IS multiple cultured but a single language. The ppl in California are QUITE different from those in NY. Different foods; culture; etc. When we think of Europe, we do not think of the fact that you are disjointed by language, but simply that you are multiple culture, just like America, due to SIZE. But your lack of a common language is killing you. UK broke off in no small part because they see themselves as different from the rest of EU. Interestingly, it is possibly why France and Germany… Read more »

LOL.
About 1/2 of Americans I know speak 2 languages, of which most of that is either Hindi, Mandarin or Spanish.
Just because it does not match up with European languages does not mean that we do not speak multiple languages.

But what I find funny is that most of the nations that have mutliple languages are trying hard to get 1 language as official.
Why? Because it is EXPENSIVE to conduct business and lives across multiple languages.
America and most of latin America, are actually fortunate in that most ppl speak either English or Spanish. This makes life cheaper for us.

Now, for America to lower our business costs, we need desperately to move on over to metric, like we had all set up to do in 81, until an idiot killed that.

I was trying to “monkey” around with words, so as not to go too negative.

In the US, a new documentary just came out on Netflix, called “Dirty Money”. Plenty of news, I won’t link to.

The stuffed monkey should be safe.

The test mule Mission E seems to have morphed somewhat from its concept shape. A shame, as it looks a bit duller.

It’s essentially a Panamera with the Mission E components, powertrain, etc. The production car will likely be significantly different.

I see. It’s a test mule for the electric drive and other systems. I find the styling of the concept car has a sportier look than any other four door electric sedan to date with the Tesla S a close second. Dreaming again here but wouldn’t a multi make racing series with big electric sedans be neat? Porsche, Tesla, Jaguar, BMW, Audi, Mercedes. Like the upcoming Electric GT series but involving more than Teslas.
