    Re: New electric 718 photos

    That's the exact car I saw at Nardo. Porsche hasn't made a second prototype yet.

    And that also looks like Nardo, someone sneaked a camera in there somehow.

    I think it looks good in the photos. What was your impression in real life?


    Re: New electric 718 photos

    A whole lot of nothing. We were standing outside of the garage talking about the other Taycans when it return and moving slowly heading to it's parking spot inside. When I didn't hear any engine note I knew it was the EV one. And it was confirmed.

    It's their first prototype, basically for testing running gear, so nothing about handling or styling can be deduced. I mean it moves, so that'a good start. Not even sure if they will keep the size, but initially it is just about Boxster size. Also pointless to talk interior styling as it was just a whole bunch of parts slapped together just to get it moving. 

    When Porsche do their testing, they are serious about the testing part. They take full control of the either the high speed ring or the handling circuit or both for the whole weekend running cars non-stop 24/7, at the high speed ring they would clock 7-8000km of running time. They literally drive in circles until something breaks.

    Thank you. I am really excited to see what the final product looks like.

    Ha, with all that camo, it gives off a bit of F430 spider vibes from that front 3/4 angle!

    But it looks lik below all that camo, they are going for the Taycan treatment design wise, which makes sense; they introduced a very distinctive design language for their electric vehicle, so if the boxster line is going full electric, it's only logical to carry over some of that design language.

    I really like how Porsche introduced the Boxster years ago as an entry-level Porsche, made it grow up fully to the level of the GT4rs, and now re-invent the model as their step into electric sports cars. Whether one agrees with electric being the future or not, it is our current future, and it pleases me to see that Porsche is at the forefront of the development as a performance car company.
