Porsche build awesome electric Cayman, but there is some bad news

Some of the most interesting cars never leave the concept phase.

With that said, Porsche is is still looking to further the development of EV tech after recently revealing the Cayman e-volution concept at the 2017 Electric Vehicle Symposium in Stuttgart.

You know it's a weird time when Porsche builds an awesome Cayman and that's not even the thing it wants you to pay attention to. Porsche has already announced that 2019 will be the year that the all-electric Mission E will go into production as the brand's first purely electric sports auto.

The accumulator-based fast charging system has been developed by Porsche and ADS TEC and can deliver a charging capacity of 320kW.

The Cayman e-volution also hints at what to expect from the Porsche's forthcoming Mission E electric sports auto, which will go into production in 2019. It packs an all-electric drivetrain that sends the vehicle to 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds, more than a second quicker than the current 718 Cayman S. Its battery only lasts about 125 miles between charges, but that's fine, because it's never going into series production. It's a 800-volt system, compared to a Tesla Supercharger's current 480-volt system that can provide up to 120 kW of power per vehicle.

Porsche claims that the Mission E will be able to travel more than 300 miles on a single charge, and that its batteries can be topped up to 80 per cent capacity in just 15 minutes.

Porsche says these chargers will be part of a high-power, fast-charging network using a medium-voltage connection, with the sports auto manufacturer working with fellow motoring giants Ford, Audi, BMW and Daimler to create a fast-charging network throughout Europe by 2020.
