Porsche shows off Cayman at electric car show
Porsche has revealed an all-electric Cayman at the Electric Vehicle Symposium in Stuttgart. While the car is just a research vehicle, Porsche engineers say it shows just how sporty an EV can be.
The Cayman E-Volution uses an all-electric drivetrain capable of launching the sports car to 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds – faster than any combustion-engined Cayman – while the as-yet unspecified battery pack can manage a claimed 124 mile range.
The Stuttgart-based company says the E-Volution is ‘hint of what’s to come in 2019’, which is when the Mission E concept will arrive in production form. Porsche insists the Cayman E-Volution will not go into production, but it does be form a stepping stone for EV development.
