Electric car Porsche and Rimac presented on a new renderJuly 14, 2018
Porsche became the owner of a part of the famous company Rimac, which gives a good chance for the emergence of a joint hypercar with an electric power unit. Part of the automotive experts and designers decided to imagine how he could look and present the render of an electric car.
Electrification is a huge segment of the car market, in which more and more new participants are ready to invest a lot of energy and resources into the work and are ready to take the leading positions. Porsche is one of these adventurers, preparing to launch the first electric car Taycan. Later the electric car will develop into a whole family of models and receive new modifications, such as Taycan Cross Turismo. New investments to buy 10 percent of Rimac mean that the company has acquired a partner in this endeavor.
People at Zuffenhausen intend to use Rimac’s experience in creating high-performance EVs. We do not know if Rimac and Porsche were going to build an electric hypercar, but this rendering reflects what a collaborative project might look like.
And both companies are quite experienced for the production of sports cars and electrification. For example, the Porsche 918 Spyder is one of the fastest hybrids, and a pioneer from a German company. The model loudly declared itself in the segment of hybrids setting its own record at the Nurburgring ring.
Rimac is also experienced in using electrified supercar installations, and is ready to present amazing models. For example, the C_Two model can develop up to 1,888 horsepower and 2,300 Nm of torque.
Therefore, the new hypercar probably will receive a power plant with a capacity of about 2,000 horsepower from the company Rimac, but the bodywork and the chassis would certainly be engaged in the company Porsche. And the frame and bodywork would have been made of carbon fiber and high-strength aluminum alloy, and accelerate to 100 km/h would take less than two seconds. It would feed everything from a solid-state battery that has a capacity sufficient to run at 50-100 km in track mode, and about 500 km in a quiet cycle.
Meanwhile, Porsche is preparing to introduce a competitor for the Audi Q8, the BMW X6 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. This is shown recently published photos of the test prototype Cayenne Coupe.
