With the release of the Porsche Mission E Concept ($TBA), the German brand provides a peek at the environmentally-clean supercars of tomorrow. This is not only the first fully-electric sports car in Porsche’s history, it is also the world’s first vehicle to use an 800-volt drive system, which can charge batteries from 0 to 85% in just 15 minutes.

Capable of accelerating faster than the new generation of 911, Mission E goes from 0-62 mph in just 3.5 seconds, thanks to a couple of magnet synchronous motors that pump-out 600 horse power. The four-seater can go for 311 miles on a full battery and it plugs via a charging port found on the front left wing. A mix of aluminum, steel and carbon fiber in the body keep the weight on the light side, while the layout of batteries ensure a low center of gravity and an even weight distribution for seamless handling.

On the outside, this sexy vehicle features an aerodynamic wide body with a 911-style bonnet and front fenders, LED matrix headlamps and sleek wide tail lights. The interior is spacious, with lightweight race bucket seats, and gear that’s intuitively operated by eye-tracking and gesture control, and even holograms. Just a concept for now, the Porsche Mission E definitely offers new ideas for the future supercars, and it might become a reality sooner than you think.
