  • 2020 Porsche Taycan spy shots

    Behold the production version of 2015's stunning Mission E concept: the 2020 Porsche Taycan. The car is a small fastback sedan with an electric powertrain. Don’t worry, those exhaust tips are just dummy units to fool onlookers. The rest of the design is very close to the concept we first saw at the 2015 Frankfurt auto show. From the elegant front to the fastback roof to the 911-esque rear, Porsche’s electric sedan is hard to fault at any angle. Talk of Porsche adding a second sedan to its lineup has been making the rounds since 2011. We’re talking about the oft-rumored...

    If you ever wanted to know what a Porsche ten years down the track might be like, look no further than the Mission E concept car unveiled moments ago. It’s a sleek, mid-size sedan that looks almost like an elongated 911, and Porsche boasts that the concept develops more than 600 horsepower from a battery-electric powertrain. It was in 2010 that Porsche first confirmed it was researching electric propulsion, which it followed up a year a later by rolling out a battery-powered prototype based on its Boxster sports car. Since then, Porsche has been testing the waters for electrified...

Most of the news around this potential machine occurred back in 2011. The rumored vehicle was nicknamed the Pajun (an amalgamation of Panamera and Junior), and it would play host to a variety of powerplants in both diesel and gasoline form. This is what you'd expect form any Porsche really, and it wouldn't be a shock if such a car were to finally...
