Porsche CEO says the electric sedan will have the same handling as the 911 sports coupe. The official presentation of the car is scheduled for September of this year.

Remember the concept Mission E? He debuted almost four years ago at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Now Porsche is going to present a production version of this all-electric sedan. Confirmed for the September show, the very first electric car of the company was caught for the hundredth time at the Nurburgring.

At first glance, the prototype of the long-awaited novelty did not receive a single gram of camouflage film – you are mistaken. When the car approaches the roundabout at the 1:11 time mark, we see that there is quite a lot of black tape on it, as well as stickers masking the optics. Later in the video, near the 4:15 mark, the prototype is visible in traffic jams – another time to show its deceptive body camouflage.

In a recent interview with the German edition of Handelsblatt, Porsche CEO Oliver Blum made a rather surprising statement: “The future Taycan will get the coupe 911’s handling.”

It will be very interesting to see this, given the fact that the electric car is much heavier. You can feel the added mass just by watching this video, although it would be unfair to draw any conclusions, since these are just prototypes and not the final product. Blum admitted in the same interview that “some things went wrong” at the Taycan development stage, without going into specific details.
