This Electric Porsche Cayman Concept Does 0-62 MPH In 3.3 Seconds
11 October 2017  Kevin leen


It won’t be going into production, but it does hint at the potential
performance of future Porsche EVs.

Porsche is no stranger to electrification, but the German automaker has yet
to add a fully electric car to its line-up. That will change in the
not-too-distant future, as the Mission E could pose a serious threat to
Tesla when it enters production in 2019. So far, the Mission E has only been
shown in concept form, and now Porsche has unveiled another fully electric
car concept based on the Cayman. Dubbed the Porsche Cayman E-Volution
Prototype, the fully electric sports car was presented at the Electric
Vehicle Symposium in Stuttgart, Germany.

Porsche says the electrified Cayman isn’t previewing a future production
car, but it does hint at the potential performance we can expect from future
Porsche EVs. No details have been shared about the powertrain, but Porsche
claims that the Cayman E-Volution Prototype can hit 0-62 mph in a mere 3.3
seconds, making it faster than any current Cayman. For comparison, the
Porsche 718 Cayman S needs 4.2 seconds to reach the same speed. Less
impressive is the range. On a full charge, the Porsche Cayman E-Volution
will last a paltry 124 miles, but it’s only a research vehicle to be fair.
Its styling appears to be based on the old 981 Cayman, rather than the
current 718 model.

The fully electric Cayman concept is primarily designed to preview the
Mission E’s 800-volt Turbo Charging system, which will recharge the battery
pack from 0 to 80 percent in 15 minutes. When it arrives in 2019, Porsche’s
first fully electric car, the Mission E, will have a range of 310 miles to
rival the Tesla Model S and Model 3. The automaker’s first ever
accumulator-based fast charging system was developed in collaboration with
ADS-TEC and is capable of achieving a charging capacity of up to 320 kW per
vehicle or twice 160 kW. It’s ideal for areas where the power limitations
are affecting the distribution system.

Porsche says it will be used as a supplement to a high-power fast charging
network with a medium voltage connection. One of these networks will be
built on major European traffic routes by 2020 in a joint venture between
Porsche, Audi, BMW, Daimler and Ford.
