Production Porsche Mission E Confirmed As Oft Rumored 'Pajun' Sedan

Behold the production version of Porsche’s Mission E concept.

The car is a small sport sedan with an electric powertrain. Don’t worry, those exhaust tips are just dummy units to fool onlookers.

The rest of the design is very close to the striking concept we first saw at the 2015 Frankfurt auto show. From the elegant front to the fastback roof to the 911-esque rear, Porsche’s new sedan is hard to fault at any angle.

Talk of Porsche adding a second sedan to its lineup has been making the rounds since 2011. We’re talking about the oft-rumored Pajun, whose nickname, a portmanteau of “Panamera” and “junior,” was chosen due to the car’s expected smaller size than the Panamera. With the second-generation Panamera having grown in length to almost 199 inches, there’s certainly room in the lineup for a smaller, more design-oriented sedan.

Underpinning the car is a Porsche-developed platform code-named the J1. The dedicated electric car platform is a separate design to the C-BEV developed by Audi for its upcoming e-tron electric SUV. It’s also separate to the smaller MEB platform developed by Volkswagen for compact electric cars.

As for the performance, here too the Mission E concept points the way. The show car featured separate motors for the front and rear wheels which delivered a combined 600 horsepower along with torque vectoring on an individual wheel basis. This was enough for 0-62 mph acceleration in 3.5 seconds and 0-124 mph acceleration in less than 12 seconds.
