Porsche has created an all-electric Cayman, named Cayman e-volution, which has been on display at the Electric Vehicle Symposium in its home town of Stuttgart.

The one-off Cayman has been developed to show 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.

As one of the greatest heavy metal groups of all-time, the members of Judas Priest weren’t exactly strapped for cash.

In case you had doubts about the existence of Porsche ’s promised 800-volt ultra-fast charging system for the Mission E, the German automaker’s upcoming first all- electric vehicle, the company showcased the development electric car used to test the technology.

The one - off Cayman was first developed back in 2015, but has been updated with Porsche 's Turbo Charging system. Its initial creation was intended to show how electric cars can still offer sportiness, despite dynamic disadvantages such as increased weight.

A plea to Audi to build a rear-wheel-drive R8 V6

  A plea to Audi to build a rear-wheel-drive R8 V6 There’s a gap in the market for a mid-engined six-pot sports car that drives its back wheels, Audi…We're confident that it exists because our snappers have caught it testing on the continent - and that’s great, even though you can’t confirm it, because there’s a gap for such a sports car on the market.

Porsche has developed an electric Cayman . The bad news is that they don’t plan on selling it. The good news is that it previews the impressive technology that will be introduced with the upcoming electric Porsche Mission E sports sedan.

Porsche is working on their new Mission E electric supercar and now the company has developed a one off electric Cayman , The Porsche Cayman E - volution . 2018 Kia Niro Plug-in Hybrid revealed , boasts 26 miles of electric range.

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. That car will have four doors, however, and a much larger range of around 310 miles. 

What the Cayman e-volution does showcase, however, is Porsche’s new Turbo Charging accumulator fast-charging system, which Porsche claims can charge at a capacity of 320kW per vehicle. This will be part of a Europe-wide charger network that Porsche is working on with Audi, BMW, Daimler and Ford.

The Cayman e-volution will never reach series production, Porsche insists, so the next electric offering from Porsche will be the Mission E, which will land in 2019.

Following that, the brand is likely to introduce more electrified and full-electric variants of its models, with solid-state batteries giving greater range, efficiency and improved charging times over standard liquid batteries. Porsche has yet to disclose when these variants will be released.
