Porsche Believes 911 Would Fare Worse Than Mission E

By  | 

According to Porsche’s CEO, Oliver Blume, the company is looking at the Mission E to be almost as popular as the 911. He said that they are expecting a mass demand for the fully electric Mission E, first revealed in Frankfurt in 2015, as reported by Automobilwoche.

“We have the Mission E calculated with a number of items in the order of about 20,000,” Blume revealed. Although it may sound like the automaker is biting off more than it could chew, it seems plausible when you consider the fact that Porsche had successfully sold 31,350 units of the 911 worldwide last year.

The Mission E isn’t an ordinary car. This model boasts a whooping 600 horsepower and can reach a 0-62 mph in less than 3.5 seconds. Besides that, this model is equipped with a lithium-ion battery unit that would only need 15 minutes of charge to achieve a driving range of 300 miles.

We are still awaiting an official debut date from Porsche but for now, we’re expecting to see Porsche’s fully electric Mission E arriving in 2019.
