Why buy a Tesla when you could buy a Porsche?

That’s the question Porsche is hoping potential electric vehicle buyers will ask themselves when they see the company’s impressive new Mission E model.

Aimed as an effective and impressive rival to the Tesla Model S, the Mission E represents Porsche’s first foray into the high-performance luxury electric car segment.

Over the past 12 months Porsche has hinted at the development of an EV, but has revealed very few details- until now.

The Mission E is set to come in three models, all ranging in horsepower with a top-of-the-range option offering 670 horsepower. It’s expected that this particular model will have a 0 to 60 mph time of just 3.5 seconds, and a top speed of over 250km/h.
Priced at around £60,000 the Mission E will pose a serious challenge to Tesla's Model S.

Priced at around £60,000 and with sales anticipated to begin in 2019, the Mission E will pose a serious challenge to Tesla’s current dominance of the EV market.

And, if you’re concerned that being a performance car will compromise range you’d be wrong. Porsche claims that it will take less than 15 minutes to reach 80% charge thanks to a new type of rapid-charge. Once the car is at 100% charge, range will be 300 miles.

Whilst still at concept stage, these details provide a tantalising glimpse at what kind of driving and ownership experience the Mission E will provide.
Despite high-performance, the Mission E does not compromise on range with 300 miles expected from a full charge.

Porsche themselves describe the Mission E in the following lofty terms:

“Our Concept Study Mission E is still just an idea, but it embodies our complete vision of all-electric driving. Four individual seats, four doors, two luggage compartments. Electric drive. E-Performance, Porsche style. Integrated in a harmonious overall concept. Concept Study Mission E sets the stage for tomorrow. With its design and its technology, it providers answers to the question of the sports car of future.”

I’m sure you’ll agree, it certainly does provide answers to the question of the sports car of the future.

Which begs the question- when the Porsche Mission E goes on sale in 2019- why buy a Tesla when you could buy a Porsche?
