Official: Porsche working on an all-electric sports car

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Porsche officially confirmed today that it will produce electric cars. The German manufacturer said that electric drive will take on an increasingly important role in the further enhancement of Porsche Intelligent Performance. Porsche announced that it is current working on future electric cars using three research cars with all-electric drive based on the Porsche Boxster.

These cars will provide an initial first important insight into new electric drive components and battery systems for all-electric vehicle drive. Of course, the news regarding Porsche electric cars is not a premiere as several rumors already revealed this fact and the well-known German tuner RUF already revealed its electric Porsche.

And this is not new to Porsche, as the manufacturer already revealed the 918 Spyder high-performance mid-engined sports car with plug-in hybrid, which combines high-tech breakthroughs in engine technology and electromobility.

The car delivers a total output of over 600 hp and delivers a fuel consumption of just three litres for 100 kilometres in the NEDC (equal to 94.1 mpg imp) and just 70 g/km CO2.

Porsche 911 GT3 Hybrid is another proof of future electric cars featuring two 60 kW (82 hp) electric motors on the front axle boosting the 480 hp six-cylinder power unit fitted at the rear. Currently, Porsche has one hybrid car in its lineup, the Cayenne S Hybrid.

The car uses a petrol engine but also an electric motor and delivers a maximum output of 380 hp while the fuel consumption is just 8.2 ltr/100 km (equal to 34.5 mpg imp). Porsche also confirmed the Panamera S Hybrid for 2011!
