Now even Porsche is getting in on the electric act. Trials of three new all-electric Porsche Boxsters are underway in Germany.
The Boxster E protypes, which Porsche describe as ‘mobile laboratories’, count on a 29kWh battery pack two electric motors giving a combined power output of 241bhp.
Although there’s no official report as to how these new vehicles performed, Porsche are getting very hot under the bonnet, hinting that they are comparable to a Boxster S. For the uninitiated, that means 0-62mph in just 5.3 sec and a top speed of 170mph. Vroom vroom!
