The Fate of the Porsche 718 Draws Near As Porsche's Decision Makers Weigh Options

The Fate of the Porsche 718 Draws Near As Porsche’s Decision Makers Weigh Options

Like the Porsche 918’s Successor, the time might not be right for an electric 718

After news that the fabled Porsche 918 Successor is delayed until at least 2025 because the technology isn’t there yet, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Porsche is on the fence about pushing the 718 Cayman and Boxster into EV territory too. The good news is that we’ll know in the next few months, but the bad news is it will still be a while before it actually happens if it happens at all.

Ford Mach-E Vs. A Rocket?

Ford Mach-E Vs. A Rocket?

It’s an unlikely comparison, but it’s certainly worth looking into.

Ford Motor Company’s official YouTube channel recently came up with a very interesting way to boast about the Mach-E’s electric range. Ford’s EV has an EPA range of 300 miles (483 km). When you consider that just a decade ago, most EVs were struggling to squeeze 100 miles of electric range, Ford, like other carmakers, has come a long way.

2021 Porsche Taycan by Techart

2021 Porsche Taycan by Techart

Techart is cooking something special for the Taycan

Techart has been around since 1987 and quickly established itself as one of the go-to Porsche tuners. They had a particularly glamorous record between 2005 and 2012, giving us multiple visually-enhanced Porsche models, almost every year, throughout that period. Although their last project involved a mildly altered 991-generation 911, they came back full-force for this one. The new Taycan features many new elements, courtesy of the German tuner, and although it’s not over-the-top like something you’d expect from Mansory, it still is a significant upgrade over the already aggressive-looking super EV.

2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV

2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV

The Bolt EUV is better-equipped than the Bolt EV, courtesy of stuff like panoramic sunroof and Super Cruise technology

With a barrage of mass-produced EVs hitting the scene lately, Chevy’s offering to the segment, the Bolt, was looking more and more expensive by the day. Paying over $40,000 for a small hatch didn’t make much sense when you could get a competent product like Tesla Model 3 for that money. So, for the 2022 model, the automaker introduced some new features and reduced the price by $5,000!

However, to not create a vacuum and let the competition capitalize on it, the Bowtie also introduced a bigger “SUV-like” product called the Bolt EUV. It is priced on par with the outgoing Bolt and happens to be the first Chevy product to be offered with Super Cruise. Is this going to be the next-big-thing for the automaker in the EV market?

Porsche's Huge $83 Million Investment In Rimac Could Make For An Interesting Future

Porsche’s Huge $83 Million Investment In Rimac Could Make For An Interesting Future

The German automaker wants to tap into Rimac’s technical expertise

Porsche has raised its ownership stake in Rimac, going from owning a minority share of 15.5 percent to 24 percent. The deal cost Porsche €70 million, or around $83.2 million based on current exchange rates. This is the third time the German automaker has invested in its Croatian company. Back in 2018, Porsche secured a 10 percent minority stake in Rimac before that share grew to 15.5 percent in 2019. Other automakers have also bought into Rimac, specifically Hyundai and Kia. The two Korean brands invested €80 million, or around $95.1 million, as part of a technical partnership that would give birth to a pair of high-performance electric vehicles.

Porsche Could Build a Taycan Coupe, Convertible, and Sport Turismo

It’s only a matter of time before Porsche turns the Taycan into a family of EVs

Porsche has made clear its plans to have an 80 percent electric lineup by 2030.

Watch a Tesla Model Y Take On a Lamborghini Huracan Just Because

In its essence, it doesn’t seem fair to put electric motors against internal combustion engines

Even with its entry-level offerings, Tesla cars have obliterated high-end sports cars ruthlessly in the past. They offer the performance levels of a sports car and the practicality of an urban commuter. Take this video, for example. The folks at Hyperchange put the Lamborghini Huracan against a Model Y in a drag race and the results were much closer than expected.
