The successor to the 918 hypercar might very well be fully electric. This news comes direct from the top man at the famed sports car brand.
When asked about the possibility of just such a model during the recent Cayenne Coupe reveal, CEO Oliver Blume responded. “We have a big history here, and we’ll have one in the future."
He followed up that if Porsche does go fully electric, they won't half-ass it. "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.”
That's all Blume would let on about the possibilty of just such a car, but he did have more to share on the upcoming Taycan./
“I drove it in Sweden three weeks ago,” he said, hinting that it will please even GT3 drivers. “It 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.”
Those waiting for the Taycan won't have to wait much longer. It will debut in September with deliveries in January of 2020. The Cross Turismo will arrive roughly only year later. After that Porosche has promised a full-electric version of the next-gen Macan, but hasn't given a timeline for its release.
Beyond that, Blume hinted that a fully-electric Cayenne will be next on the list. We're surprised it isn't coming sooner.
