Porsche is also slowly saying goodbye to the combustion engine, and by 2025 half of sports cars should be electrically powered. It is already clear that the new Macan will be an electric car from 2023, and then the Cayman will be next. Porsche boss Oliver Blume had already indicated this to Auto Express in March 2021. Until then, however, it will take a while, An electric Cayman is not expected before 2023. Probably because Porsche is hoping for new, lighter batteries. However, there is already an indication of the optics, thanks to the study called Mission R shown at the IAA 2021 in Munich. The AUTO BILD artist has somewhat defused it on the computer, the illustration shows what the series version could look like.
The range should be over 500 kilometers
It is assumed that the new Cayman generation will be based on a shortened version of the PPE electric platform, on which the electric Macan will also be based. Based on the study, the design should have more angular elements than before, which can be seen particularly well in the area of the doors. The headlights are narrower and are reminiscent of those of the Taycan, the fenders are strongly shaped at the front and rear and thus emphasize the sportiness. Some key data are already circulating about the drive: Allegedly the electric Cayman will be at least 400 PS have, the rear wheels should be driven as standard. All-wheel drive could be an option. The range should be over 500 kilometers, the 800-volt technology for fast charging should be adopted from the Taycan.
