Porsche is already working on several electric vehicles, such as the Taycan, Taycan Cross Turismo and Macan, and maybe in the next decade we will see a Cayenne with an electric propulsion system.

Having a solid foundation with the above-mentioned cars, the company seriously thought about the new electric hypercar. And this information was confirmed by Porsche CEO Oliver Blum.

Although Porsche does not have a concept for such a car, the company is confident that it can be successful in the market, and should be the most powerful. In general, this model can impose serious competition to Ferrari, McLaren and Lamborghini.

In addition, Porsche has a powerful basis for the VW Group, which has devoted enormous efforts to electrifying its brands, and, even more interesting, has acquired a 10% stake in the Croatian company Rimac, which is developing electric hypercars. This partnership can help Porsche in the development of its electric supercar.

Recall, the 918th model in the amount of 918 units was produced for three years, and was removed from the conveyor in 2015. Hybrid hypercar developed power in 875 hp and accelerated to 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds at a maximum speed of 345 km / h. In addition, the 918th can ride a pure electric traction for short periods of time and at speeds up to 150 km / h.
