Electric Porsche Cayman e-volution revealed

Recommended Posts

Porsche has created an all-electric Cayman, and its called the Cayman e-volution.  The car has been on display at the Electric Vehicle Symposium in Porsche's home town of Stuttgart.

 

The Cayman e-volution is a one-off and was first developed nearly 2 years ago.  This car has been updated with Porsche's Turbo Charging (PTC) system.  The e-volution was created wth the intention of demonstrating how electric cars can still offer sportiness, despite dynamic disadvantages such as increased weight. 

 

The Cayman e-volution has a range of around 120 miles and can reach 62mph in 3.3sec – 1.1sec quicker than the current range-topping 2.5-litre 718 Cayman S, with the quick-shifting PDK gearbox.  One unusual aspect to this Cayman is the four-wheel drive system (although not to electric sports cars), the car is limited to 120mph and has a 38kWh capacity in its lithium-ion battery pack which provides a range of about 120 miles.

 

Porsche says the car is a hint at things to come and that it offers a flavour of what to expect from its first production electric vehicle, the Mission E.

Not convinced on the range as they stated a similar range for the Cayene electric and one of the car mags delved into the ecu to find that in the last 6000 miles it had only managed to do 18 miles per charge so not much better than a milk float from 50 years ago. Luckily I read this just in time to stop my brother from buying one..
