Feels like a 918 Spyder too

The Porsche Mission E is on its way from concept to production car and, once it arrives in showrooms, it will be the company’s first all-electric vehicle. Essentially a 911 with four doors, the sleek Mission E uses a 600-horsepower drivetrain and some of the technology found inside the 919 Hybrid race car that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2016 and 2017. Not surprisingly, Porsche Team driver Mark Webber, who recently tested the Mission E on the Weissach track, says that the electric four-door feels a lot like the 919 Hybrid.

"It reminded me at times, a lot, of the 919," Webber said after he completed a few quick laps in the Mission E prototype. He also noted that "looking over the front wheel arches looks like a 918 Spyder" and also described the EV as a "game changer."

Unfortunately, the video is only two minutes long and doesn’t provide any additional information on the upcoming Mission E. But the sedan appears to be pretty fast on the Weissach, and Mark Webber seems extremely happy at the end of the run.

The production model is expected to go into production in 2019.
