All Electric Porsche e-Boxster is a Rolling Laboratory

Porsche has delved into the hybrid sports car market with unmatched gusto among specialty car makers, and its latest development is the all-electric e-Boxster. This rolling laboratory will help Porsche engineers how electric car affect lives.

Actually, Porsche has built three e-Boxsters as part of their e-mobility program, which will feed data to the engineers who have to build the legendary sports cars to exacting standards. After an unsure start in alternative-fuel vehicles, Porsche seems to have seen the potential in not just hybrids, but electric cars too. The e-Boxsters pack 100-miles per charge and 240 horsepower, though no information on how much torque, which is where electric motors really shine. What I’m trying to say is, electric motors make a lot of sense from a performance potential, delivering instant torque with fewer moving parts.

But before Porsche dives head first into producing electric cars, they want to see what electric car drivers need in terms of power, range, and infrastructure. The idea of an all-electric Porsche tickles me pink, and this test fleet says to me that such a vehicle isn’t all that far away.
