Porsche's Gorgeous Tesla-Fighting Mission E Concept Looks Like... The Next 911?

Everyone thinks Porsche’s Mission E could be the next electric Panamera. But it’s smaller than that, which means you might be looking at the next 911 instead despite the four doors. No luxurious rear seats, but speed and beauty this time with an exciting concept that we’re hoping hits the streets by 2019.

Then again, there’s still that idea of an Baby Panamera floating around. Maybe that’s what this will be. We don’t really know yet, but if it’s electric it will have tough competition.

The Tesla Model S P90D can already reach 60 MPH in a ludicrously short time thanks to 700+ horsepower and its instant peak torque of 713 lb-ft through a sophisticated all-wheel drive system. It’s faster than most supercars, so imagine where Tesla can take it four years from now!

But enter a stunning Porsche into that picture too. While it’s true that the Mission E Concept “only” has 600+ electric horses, Porsche knows how to make a car lighter, and their battery technology should be more than alright by then, based on the fact that they already won the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a hybrid.

While I doubt the suicide doors could make to getting a license plate, the combination of the giant vent wheels, the LEDs, all the carbon fiber and the fine leathers in the cabin could turn this into the sexiest catfish yet.

Especially in Carrera White.

I’m going to get burned here, but I really don’t care this morning, so I’ll say it now: This is not gorgeous. Not by a log shot. The Panamera and Tesla Model S aren’t exactly prize winners either, and yet they both look better than this.
