    Forget cars like the Porsche Taycan and Ford Mach-E
    Because Porsche is about to reveal a Boxster EV

    Essentially an electric 718 (or so we think)
    We believe that this car could debut in concept form as early as the end of 2021

    It’s not exactly an electric 911, as that will be the last car that Porsche electrifies
    But, it could kickstart the electric compact sports car segment

    Such a car would force Audi to consider an electric TT and BMW an electric Z4
    Eventually, Toyota would follow suit with the Supra, Subaru with the BRZ, and the list goes on

    The best part of this news is that the electric 718 isn’t going to kill of the 718 as we know it.
    Much like Porsche is going to sell the electric Macan alongside the ICE model

    The electric 718 or “Boxster EV” will be sold alongside an ICE version of the 718 as well
    The dual 718 strategy won’t last forever, but it will ease the transition.

    It’s also important to know that the Boxster EV will be built upon a brand-new platform
    Which means it won’t share the PPE platform that will underpin the Macan

    When the Boxster EV will go into production is still a big mystery
    But we’re hoping it doesn’t take the same 5-year window that it took Porsche to turn the Mission E Concept into the Taycan.

    If Porsche can launch an electric 718 by the end of 2024, it will basically force all of its competition to do the same
    A move that would essentially kickstart the electric sports car market.
