According to Porsche, the Cayman e-volution has an electric range of approximately 125 miles with performance capable of setting a 3.3 second zero to 60 mph time. Porsche clarified that it plans for the actual production Mission E to stretch its electric range to around 300 miles (500 kilometers).

When Porsche decided it was going to go ahead with its Mission E concept for 2019, it also made the bold claim that it would develop a charging system that could juice up the car with an 80-percent charge in just 15 minutes. The new Cayman e-volution has allegedly stayed true to that claim.

Porsche debuted its “Porsche Turbo Charging” system, which it claims is capable of juicing up to 320 kW per vehicle. It’s a 800-volt system, compared to a Tesla Supercharger’s current 480-volt system that can provide up to 120 kW of power per vehicle. Porsche sticks by its original claim that the Mission E will be able to charge to 80 percent capacity in just 15 minutes.

This (confusingly named) Turbo Charging system will be the part of a “high power, fast-charging network” across higher-trafficked areas of Europe in a partnership between Volkswagen Auto Group, Mercedes, BMW and Ford, as well as additional similar networks.

This is all shaping up to satisfy the intriguing and attractive premise of the Mission E when it finally starts stealing Tesla customers at the end of the decade, but can we please linger on this concept of an electric Cayman a little bit longer?
