Porsche’s Mission E: The Emotionally Intelligent Electric Super Car

Sep 16, 2015

Previously unheard of, the idea of driving a superfast, pure electric supercar that would move you across the planet in record speeds, without dumping an ounce of carbon emissions into the wondrous stratosphere, sounded highly impressive. But for the same mere automobile to also be able to read your emotions en-route, would still be considered mission impossible. Well, wait until you hear about the Mission E.

The Mission E is the latest concept masterpiece to drive out of Porsche’s production plant. Unveiled just last Monday night in anticipation of the Frankfurt Motor Show, this car is certainly a show stealer. Constructed with 600 hp, this fearless racing machine will achieve a 0 to 60 sprint in 3 seconds, but this barely touches the beginning of our fascination.

As an all electric, it may well be Tesla’s most serious competitor. The Mission E will drive more than 480 km before it will peter out, but then recharge back to 80% capacity in just 15 minutes using an 800-volt "Porsche Turbo Charging" system. This presents as stiff competition to Tesla’s flagship Model S that has a 434 kilometer range and will recharge half its battery using its high wattage supercharging network in 20 minutes.But this is where we get to the really exciting part, this all-wheel-drive sportscar, delivers an all-sensory-drive experience, whereby an eye-tracking camera situated in the rearview mirror "recognizes the driver's good mood and shows it as an emoticon" on the dashboard. Truly a 21st century approach to self reflection, the driver’s emotions can then be shared with all of his or hers dearest and closest via the galaxy of social media. Of course, all done alongside the LCD screen that displays the car’s route and speed.

At this stage, Porsche has been hazy on the details of production time for the Model E and for that matter, an approximation on the price. However, what is most certainly likely to be priced north of $100,000, is also according to Brauer, an analyst at Kelly Blue Book, not just a car, but a personal expression.
