The fully electric model will be Porsche’s first ever production electric car and will go head to head with the Tesla Model S.
Details are currently scarce, but the new model, which is currently known as the Pajun will be built on a version of the new MSB platform that is also basis for the Panamera. According to Autocar a range of gas and diesel engines will be offered, but the big news is that the new model will also see the introduction of a fully electric version.
