Bound Porsche Mission E christened Porsche Taycan

Porsche Taycan is the name for the production Mission E

When Porsche back in 2015 first revealed its multi-year plan to develop an all-electric sports auto, it called the forthcoming vehicle the Mission E. Loathe it? Let us know what you think of the Taycan name in the comments section below. Porsche Chair Oliver Blume called it "strong and dependable; it's a vehicle that can consistently cover long distances and that epitomizes freedom".

The prancing Taycan isn't short of oomph: its 600-horsepowers can launch it from 0-to-60 mph (96km/h) in under 3.5 seconds, and it should travel over 300 miles on a single charge. Despite the impressive performance, the Taycan will have a range in excess of 500 km (310 miles) in the New European Driving Cycle. Porsche announced the name for its first purely electric model as part of the "70 years of Porsche Sports Cars" ceremony celebrating 70 years since the first 356. This setup will allow the Taycan to be charged to 80 percent capacity in just 15 minutes, changing the way electric cars charge in the future.

The Taycan has been dubbed the "Tesla-slayer" by some automotive journalists. And with good reason, the Mission E's specs are truly remarkable and may ultimately sway some prospective Model S buyers to side with Porsche instead. I'd say this is a fitting name. The Taycan will be powered by twin electric motors with a system performance of more than 440 kW, and can accelerate to 100 km in "considerably less than three seconds".

New electric vehicle startups including SF Motors, Lucid Motors, Fisker and others are planning to release their own luxury electric models.

New Mars discoveries advance case for possible life
The compounds discovered on Mars could have been produced by living things, or they could have been food for those living things. On 6 August 2012, the Sample Analysis at Mars ( SAM) instrument suite (1) arrived on Mars onboard the Curiosity rover.

This version of the Taycan is expected to be the flagship model but Porsche has invested a further 500million Euros (£437million) into its electrification strategy to develop additional versions of the vehicle.

Stefan Weckbach, Head of the BEV Model Series at Porsche, has now taken a few people to get test drives in the Mission E Cross Turismo in California and commented on the German automaker's plans.

Porsche is doubling down on electric cars, saying it will pour over €6 billion (about $7.1 million) into electromobility by 2022.
