The  concept car premiered at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, and now Porsche has given the green light for productions.

The four-door car with four individual seats has a system power output of over 600bhp. The vehicle will thus achieve both acceleration of 0 to 100kph in under 3.5seconds and a range of more than 500km. Charged via an 800-volt charger unit specially developed for the car, which is twice as powerful as today’s quick-charge systems, the lithium-ion batteries integrated within the vehicle floor have enough power again for 80 percent of the range after just 15 minutes. The vehicle can optionally be ‘refuelled’ wirelessly by induction via a coil set into the garage floor.

In the words of chairman of the executive board Dr. Oliver Blume, Porsche is “beginning a new chapter in the history of the sports car,” with the model set for launch at the end of the decade. More than 1,000 new jobs are being created in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen following the go ahead of the project. Over the next few years, a new paint shop and a new assembly plant will be built. The existing engine factory is also being expanded for the production of electric motors. In addition, the existing body shop is being enlarged. On top of that come other areas in which the company will be investing in this context, such as in the Weissach development centre.
