Porsche Boxster E

Let me preface this post by saying that to our knowledge Porsche has absolutely no plans whatsoever to produce this thing. However, that doesn’t mean that they’re not using their Boxster E as a test mule for things to come. By this time everyone knows that the new Porsche 918 is the King Schwing when it comes to hybrids. It’s drop dead gorgeous, has stellar performance and packs enough technology to make Bill Gates choke. It’s also helped Porsche gain a solid foothold in the realm of hybrid technologies. Since its speculated to cost around $650,000 though, I wouldn’t plan on seeing too many of them rolling around. Now, where the 918 is hybrid, the Boxster E is a full-on electric vehicle that, according to Automobile Magazine, could incorporate one or two electric motors producing a total output of 180 kilowatts, or around 240 horsepower. That’s only 15 horsepower shy of a base model gasoline powered Boxster. This much power also equates to a 0-60 mph sprint of just over 5-seconds. Even though Porsche has no current plans to build the all-electric Boxster E, it wouldn’t surprise us in the least if we saw its battery technology surface in something like future Panamera’s or 911’s.
