Porsche built an electric Cayman concept that's surprisingly quick

With that said, Porsche is is still looking to further the development of EV tech after recently revealing the Cayman e-volution concept at the 2017 Electric Vehicle Symposium in Stuttgart.

Apparently this technology was also manufactured for the Cayman e-volution which not only proves its viability but also that it will likely debut alongside the new Mission E.

The Porsche Cayman E-volution is a one off electric vehicle that Porsche developed for the Electric Vehicle Sumposium.

This version of the small sports auto is also a preview of the Mission E, which will be Porsche's first all-electric model that is due to come into production in 2019.

Porsche also displayed its Turbo Charging system, which uses an accumulator-based fast-charging setup that is capable to get up to a charging capacity of 320kw. With a range in excess of 300 miles and a charger that can replenish up to 80 percent of a battery's charge in just 15 minutes, it won't just be a performer in terms of output and acceleration.

The company said its estimates are "preliminary and dependent on broad assumptions about coverage, liability and reinsurance". Both insurers said the losses were within their expectations.

With the Cayman e-volution the company presents a research vehicle with a charging voltage of 800 volts that accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and offers a range of 200 kilometres.

The vehicle comes with a range of 200 kilometers and a 0 to 62 miles per hour rime of just 3.3 seconds.

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.

Walking past one you would be hard pressed to see many physical differences between it and the standard auto.
