With Elon Musk and his Tesla company currently leading the way in electric car innovation it was inevitable that the stalwarts of the auto industry would eventually get in the game and offer their own versions. BMW already have the i8 hybrid on the playing field, but at the Frankfurt Motor Show this week Porsche unveiled their concept electric car called the Mission E and it is rather sexy.

“two electric motors turn out more than 600 horsepower to all four wheels courtesy of a torque vectoring system — which automatically distributes torque to the individual wheels. Highlights include: zero to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds, a 310-mile battery-only range, and 80 percent charging in 15 minutes via 800-volt technology. ” [more specs HERE]
Audi also revealed an electric version at the Frankfurt show this week, but i prefer the Porsche.
