The 2019 Porsche Mission E made jaws drop during the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show! This spectacular salon car has a powerful output and offers optimal luxury. In fact, the electric drivetrain and the knowledge on energy storage was gained by experts as they developed the Le Mans-Winning 919 Hybrid race automobile. In addition, the construction of the model using lightweight materials was borrowed from the expertise employed in the construction of the 918 Spyder Hypercar. The model will also contribute to the development of the Tesla Model S that is set to make a debut within the next 10 years. With such mind blowing facts, it is only fair that we explore the Porsche Mission E some more.
On the outside, the model can be regarded as stylish and luxurious. It is made using low weight materials including aluminium, steel and carbon fiber. Its bodywork is rather low as the model has a height of less than 52 inches. For improved aerodynamic abilities, it also has fastback greenhouse and flared fenders. Additionally, cameras replace the side-view mirrors hence allowing for a better view while driving. The carrying capacity for this electric automobile is 4 passengers. For movement, the car uses 21 inch front wheels and 22 inch rear wheels. 4 point LED matrix headlamps seen in the 911 model feature in this car as well. Among the most distinct features is the suicide door design that is made without the B pillars so as to facilitate easier access to the cabin.
Inside the car, style and luxury are the primary themes. The dashboard that comes with 5 gauges is OLED. The most interesting feature is the eye-tracking ability that allows the driver to select menus and submenus by staring at the preferred option and pressing a button that is installed on the steering wheel. This gauge applies parallax in operation hence allowing the driver to access the dashboard regardless of their sitting position. The touch free operations also run to the entertainment systems and the HVAC. Among the functions found in this car are a navigation system, climate control, selected 3D applications, among others. User safety is assured through the installation of state of the art security features and equipment.
