Ever since the 918 was revealed as an electric supercar, rumors of a fully electric successor has been on the table. Now it couldn't be more true.

How true? It comes back to the Taycan. A high volume selling model like it (and others to come) creates opportunities for VW group to proceed further. A Porsche electric supercar and/or hypercar launched before 2025 is very plausible. Its the next major shift for the supercar and hypercar segments and Porsche like other VW owned brands are gearing up to compete. Before that happens we'll see the next best thing to happen, a 911 Hybrid. Some 992 hybrid test mules are said to be undergoing testing right now although its hard to tell in the videos and pictures out currently. So far this is what I gathered Porsche will be up to for the next 5-6 years:

Projected Porsche Electric Vehicle Launch Timeline:
  • 2019-2020: Taycan
  • 2020-2022: Taycan Cross Turismo & Macan Electric & Cayenne Electric?
  • 2022-2024: 992 911 Hybrid?
  • 2024-2026: Porsche All-Electric Supercar (vs. Ferrari/Mclaren/Lamborghini equivalent)/Hypercar (vs. vs. Ferrari/Mclaren/Lamborghini equivalent)?

Porsche Brand CEO, Oliver Blume also gave it away saying “We have a big history here, and we’ll have one [porsche electric supercar] in the future. It has to be the best in the market, the highest performing… right now we haven’t got a concept for that car. But might it be a pure-electric car? Yes.”. If that's beyond your budget then a higher performing Taycan for GT3 drivers may or may not be in the cards: “It [Taycan] will have a driving dynamic you have never seen on before on an electric car. There will be GT3 drivers who will be interested in the Taycan, and have both of them. A dream garage.” And of course there's the 911 Hybrid.

Partnering was also said to be "much more important in the future" on the future electric supercar/hypercar. Rimac was mentioned. Don't know how I feel about a partnership. Porsche already has $20-million USD invested into Rimac so its possible.

All in all, possibilities seems endless for Porsche's future. An all-electric 918 successor might be the last 100% pure Porsche supercar.
