Porsche has handed down a special new video that offers an insight into the design process of its new models. In this case, it’s the Mission E concept, revealed at last year’s Frankfurt motor show.
The Mission E was first revealed as a preview of what could be a future rival to the likes of Tesla, debuting an all-electric drive system beneath a skin both iconically Porsche and unquestionably futuristic.
Porsche then gave fans an early Christmas gift in December when it revealed that a version of the Mission E will make its way to production, promising that a “100 per cent electrically-powered” model is on the way.
Good news for Porsche’s product planners is that the Mission E was also declared Best Concept Car Design at the Car Design Night event that preceded this year’s Geneva motor show in March.
No surprise that the marque’s styling masters looked back at classic Porsche models for inspiration, along with the current 919 Le Mans endurance racer.
