The Mission E is the first all-electric 4-seat sports car from the German automaker, and promises legendary Porsche performance with new levels of efficiency and innovation. Note the “counter-opening” doors, low overall height and lack of rearview mirrors. Virtual external mirrors capture images and project them onto the lower corners of the windshield.

That legendary Porsche performance comes from an 800-volt drive system producing more than 600 horsepower and delivering a driving range of more than 300 miles.

Equipped with all-wheel drive and all-wheel steering, the Mission E will accelerate from zero to 62 mph in less than 3.5 seconds. Porsche claims the Mission E can be charged to approximately 80 percent capacity in about 15 minutes using an 800-volt port.

The Porsche Mission E drive system employs two permanently synchronous motors, similar to those used in the Porsche 919 hybrid race car that won the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans. The PSMs are used to both accelerate the car and recover braking energy.

The low-profile instrument display wraps around the driver, with five virtual gauges displayed with organic LED technology.The driver can organize the instruments according to themes, and an eye-tracking system determines which instrument the driver is viewing, so the menu for that instrument can be accessed at the push of the button.
