Porsche Reportedly Wants To Make Its Entire Lineup Electric Besides The 911

Porsche is putting the finishing touches on the all-new Taycan and it could be just the tip of the electric iceberg.

While we’ve already heard rumors that Porsche wants to add an assortment of new electric vehicles to its lineup, Germany’s Manager Magazin is reporting the company wants its entire lineup – besides the 911 – to be electric. The plan is reportedly being spearheaded by CEO Oliver Blume who reportedly feels it would be too expensive to develop electric vehicles and an assortment of petrol engines at the same time.

There’s little doubt that phasing out most petrol engines would significantly reduce development costs, but a Porsche lineup that is largely electric would prove controversial.

As The Drive noted, many of the company’s existing models would switch over to electric powertrains between 2022 and 2025. This would significantly increase the number of electric vehicles the company sells.

The report says things would get off to a slow start as the company only projects about 0.2% of sales would come from electric vehicles by the end of 2019. That number would slowly increase to 17.7 percent in 2022 and 78.74 percent in 2025. If the report is to be believed, nearly 100 percent of sales would come electric vehicles by 2027 – excluding the 911.

While Porsche seems to be playing it safe with the 911, it remains to be seen if consumer would be willing to buy electric versions of the Boxster, Cayman, Cayenne, Macan and Panamera. However, this isn’t the first time the company has toyed with the idea as Porsche introduced the Boxster E back in 2011. The automaker also offers an assortment of performance-oriented plug-in hybrids.

    So no 9E-leven ? 🙁

      LOL…lame joke

      • Jason Panamera

        Call 911 then

  • S3XY

    By 2027. Sure.

  • Mr. EP9

    Cayenne and Macan?

    Sure. With emissions getting stricter, having those two be EVs would help out greatly and keep the sale going so long as this SUV/CUV craze continues. But for the Boxster and Cayman? I think that’s going to be a hard sell for Porsche.

      making those 2 best sellling suvs to be a EV theorically sound innovative, but porsche would end up a dead end.because most of macan/cayenne drivers would not access to EV charging infrastructure out of cities,dramatically even in cities.
      EV sounds cool and ecofriendly,but needs another 15years at least to be common,cheaper,affordable,more reliable and easy to sell/buy/repair

        Just wait for electric porsche copy by chinese company Zotye. They will make an electrified Macan copy and do job for Porsche, checking if it will sell. Simple market evaluation.

        • Elpatore

          I seriously doubt anybody is cross-shopping between Porsche an Zotye.

        • Belthronding

          EVs are not guilty in that case but infrastructure.

  • Bo Hanan

    Why the fake exhaust that looks fake?

    • Honda NSX-R

      Me thinks it’s to make people believe that it has an internal combustion engine, but we all know it’s the all-electric Taycan.

      • Belthronding

        they might/should consider to build a hybrid version of it after some time.

        • Honda NSX-R

          Wouldn’t it be weird to debut a hybrid version of a car that’s supposed to be an EV, and convey the world that the brand is serious about electric cars?

    Come on not the Boxster and the Cayman!
