  • Prototype for production Porsche Mission E

Porsche debuted the Mission E concept more than two years ago, but when the electric sports auto goes into production, it will feature a different name.

Extensive construction and expansion at the Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen headquarters At the Porsche headquarters in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, a new paint shop, dedicated assembly area for the Taycan, and a conveyor bridge for transporting the painted bodies and drive units to the final assembly area all are now being built. Porsche claims a 0-60 time of "well under 3.5 seconds" and a range of more than 300 miles based on the New European Driving Cycle.

The announcement of the baptism was made by Porsche on Friday during a " 70 years of Porsche Sports Cars" ceremony.

Porche revealed on Friday that the company's first fully electric vehicle name will be Taycan.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk's naming strategy is racier in a different way: He was shooting to have the Model Line up read S, E, X, Y, until Ford scuppered his "E".

At the special exhibition being held at the Porsche Museum, the Mission E concept vehicle is a significant part of the show. And with good reason, the Mission E's specs are truly remarkable and may ultimately sway some prospective Model S buyers to side with Porsche instead.

Porsche say you won't need to spend half an hour "conditioning" the Taycan to get that performance and, as long as you have juice to play with, the Taycan will keep on delivering its power. Range will reportedly be over 500km under the NEDC testing scheme, although we're holding our breath to hear how that range looks under WLTP. The four-door, four-seat Taycan's floor-mounted batteries point to an extremely low centre of gravity and handling to match more focused performance machines. Of that, €500 million of that will go to Taycan variants, with €1 billion toward electrification and hybrid versions of the existing range. Porsche plans to use its existing engine plant to make the twin-motor drive units, which is being expanded accordingly.
