Porsche's first all-electric vehicle hits the road
Porsche is about their path towards building electric vehicles. The German automaker not only confirmed the Mission E for production, they are also reportedly considering an all-electric 911 as well. Now, our spies have caught a glimpse of the marque's first ever electric car.
The car seen here is already sporting its production body. We see a Panamera-like outline but the overall size appears to be smaller than the flagship four-door coupe. At the front, a false nose suggests the car will be smaller than it actually is although expect the Mission E to come with the concept's quad-LED light look. Given that it is an electric car, its air intakes are likely for battery cooling.
Most of the Panamera cues are seen on its sides, namely, the sloping roofline with the rear end forming a rakish liftgate. It also gets a set of frameless doors and door-mounted side mirrors. Like the Panamera, the rear quarter panel is curvy and is pulled away from the middle section of the car. The window line meanwhile sweeps upwards, a common theme in Porsche vehicles.
As for the rear, we see a small section of its slim LED tail lights. Porsche covered most of its rear fascia, going as far as installing fake exhaust pipes. Being an electric car, there is no need for these exhausts.
However, present is the pop-up rear spoiler which was deployed in this set of photos. All in all, the pre-production car is mostly faithful to the concept that was revealed back in 2015.
