Thus the first specifications of the Mission E are already known. The combination of the two electric motors gives a total of more than 600 horsepower, which is sufficient to accelerate the more than two-ton car to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and to 124 mph – in less than 12 seconds.

However, according to Porsche, Mission E is able to travel without recharging more than 330 miles, and charging the battery to 80% capacity takes only 15 minutes. However, special charger with 800 volts voltage will be needed, which Porsche developed specifically for this concept.
