Porsche Mission E on course for 2020 launch

16 August, 2017

The new platform is said to be separate to the structure being developed by parent company Volkswagen for its new range of electric cars, which includes a production version of the Budd-E concept first seen last year at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. This week's Mission E test car has exhaust pipes, but they are likely left on due to the fact the body is borrowed from a Panamera. The lack of dirt on them supports that they're not functional. Heading development of the zero-emissions Porsche is Stefan Weckbach, who previously led product strategy and more recently was responsible for the development of the Boxster.
