Porsche Mission E Has A New Name Now

Mission E: Porsche names its first fully electric sports car the Taycan

Called the Porsche 911 Speedster Concept, the model is essentially a GT3 with its roof removed and with styling elements that pay tribute to the open top version of the marque's first auto - the legendary 356 Speedster.

While the Mission E name did sound cooler, the Taycan name is said to be roughly translated as "lively young horse".

"Our new electric sports auto is strong and dependable; it's a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomises freedom", explained Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG.

The Eurasian name also signifies the launch of the first electric sports vehicle with the soul of a Porsche.

Two models now sit in the Mission E portfolio with the first having debuted in 2015 as the Mission E concept (a more traditional sports coupe body) followed by the Mission E Cross Turismo that debuted this year as an electric soft-roader. The vehicle will feature two permanently synchronous motors (PSM) that provides a total system output of over 600 PS (590 hp or 440 kW).

Porsche is the latest in a long line of companies that chose to make an extra buck by charging monthly fees to people in need of information about their electric vehicles. The Porsche Taycan is expected to be the flagship for Porsche's electrification of its range, with a number of plug-in hybrids and EVs set to arrive further down the line.

The name Macan is derived from the Indonesian word for tiger, with connotations of suppleness, power, fascination and dynamics.

Porsche said it plans to double its investment in hybrid and fully electric vehicles to more than Euro 6 billion by 2022 as parent Volkswagen seeks to overcome an emissions-cheating scandal and tap into growing demand for greener transportation.

The existing engine plant is being expanded to manufacture electric drives and the body shop will also be developed.

Speaking to Carbuyer on a previous occasion, Blume explained that, although some autonomous features can be expected, Porsche has no plans for an entirely self-driving version of the Mission E. The intent would instead be to ensure owners can enjoy driving their auto, although he cited examples of where autonomy might help out - reading a newspaper while stuck in traffic and the ability to park remotely were mentioned. Expect the Tesla-fighting Porsche Taycan to launch in 2019, followed by a Cross Turismo variant not long afterward.

Established in 1984, Porsche Cars North America, Inc.

The Concept's "GT" silver and white exterior paintwork harks back to Porsche's early race cars, as do the Talbot-shaped mirrors and bonnet-mounted fuel cap. PCNA employs over 300 people who provide parts, service, marketing, and training for 189 dealers. PCNA is an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Porsche AG, which is headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany. The Taycan is arguably the marque's most radical model in its 87-year history - being its first ever all-electric production vehicle.
