  • 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...

  • Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo concept

    Porsche on Friday confirmed its Mission E Cross Turismo concept for production as an alternative body style for the Taycan electric liftback sedan. The Mission E Cross Turismo concept made its debut in March at the 2018 Geneva auto show and is in the form of a rugged, high-riding wagon, known as a soft-roader in automotive parlance.

It's possible we see both given Porsche's penchant for launching multiple derivatives of...
