Here’s How The Porsche Mission E Concept Was Created

Mainly because it signals the arrival of the most important car to bear Stuttgart’s coat of arms since the Cayenne, Porsche’s very coy about its Mission E Concept, especially as the production-spec variant will have a strong resemblance with it.

Like its moniker denotes, the prototype’s mission is to open a new world of motoring for the German car manufacturer. It’s a big and probably risky leap (just like the Cayenne was), and Porsche wants to make sure the entire concept around the upcoming car is understood. So, in this video, Porsche explains the entire process it required to fully build the intriguing vehicle.

Esthetics are just as important as the mechanical bits that lurk under the vehicle’s body, and trying to transpose its main characteristics and immense heritage in the form of an electric car was a big challenge for Porsche – considering we’re talking about a four-seat, four-door car with a “voltaic” drive system.

Nevertheless, the company managed to pull the feat quite brilliantly, spawning one of the most stunning-looking models ever. Furthermore, the Mission E absorbs Porsche’s tradition as well, carrying details and design cues inspired from motorsport and the famous 917K, A550 Spyder and even 919 Hybrid.

    • Doubt It

      Seriously doubt Porsche will ever feel threatened or take a clue from Tesla. Tesla will never reach the refinement nor the styling of Porsche.

      • DON’T KID YOURSELF. COMPANIES ARE SCRAMBLING TO COME UP WITH ALTERNATIVES. YOU EVEN SEE THEM STARTING TO SELL ON-LINE.
