For all those Porsche 911 fans waiting for an electrified version, you’re in for a long wait. (For those that think it’s sacrilege, you can breathe a little bit easier for a while longer.) According to Car and Drive r, the German automaker is working on a two-seater EV, one that will be based on the 718 lineup and be badged a 2025 model. That means both the Boxster and the Cayman will become EV models, and will be available in an all-wheel-drive configuration, a first for a 718 model. Further speculation is that the Boxster will retain its fabric top rather than a hard roof, and the respective body styles will remain close to the current models, apart from Porsche’s new “electric front” with wider headlights, as on the Taycan.
At the recent IAA Mobility show in Munich, Porsche revealed the Mission R concept car . Strip off the race-inspired aero package and we might have some idea of what the 718 EVs will look like. As to the cabin, no insight yet, but expect it to take the Taycan’s futuristic design a step further.
