Porsche showcased a one-off electric Cayman, called the Cayman e-volution at the 2017 International Electric Vehicle Symposium in Stuttgart, Germany.

The electric Cayman has a range of 200kilometres and will be capable of doing a 0-100kmph sprint in 3.3seconds, according to Porsche. The battery pack uses a charging voltage of 800volts for the electric two-seater. The one-off Cayman has been developed to preview Porsche’s electric competency before the all-electric Mission E arrives in a couple of years.

The Cayman e-volution will never GO into production. However, it provides us with an early glimpse of what can be expected from the first all-electric Porsche arriving in 2019. Porsche claims that the Mission E will boast of an even larger range of 500kilometres and will be able to charge itself to 80 per cent in just 15 minutes. The four-door Mission E was spotted testing just recently.

Porsche also uses the Cayman e-volution to showcase its new fast-charging system, called the Porsche Turbo Charging. The Turbo Charging accumulator is capable of achieving a charging capacity of up to 320kW per vehicle. The system is a collaborative development between Porsche and ADS-TEC. It will be particularly suitable for areas where the distribution system is subjected to power limitations. The system is to be used as a supplement to high-power fast charging network with medium voltage connection. One of these networks will be built on major European traffic routes by 2020 in a joint Venture between Porsche, Audi, BMW, Daimler and Ford.
