The Speedster Concept's development was handled by Porsche Motorsport in Weissach.

The Taycan was first previewed with the Mission E concept at the 2015 Frankfurt motor show and followed by the Mission E Cross Turismo high-riding wagon concept at Geneva this year.

The Turkish name of Porsche's electric vehicle was discussed on various blogs where Germans auto enthusiasts gather. "For example, when you have 400bhp, it could be possible to upgrade to 450bhp".

It's expected that the Porsche Mission E will deliver exceptional acceleration, but its maker has also promised a 310-mile range.

This will allow the vehicle to charge from zero to 80 per cent in just 15 minutes.

To achieve this, a fast charging network of at least 150kW (kilowatt) output will be necessary. The corresponding app, available free of charge, and the Porsche navigation system direct the customer to the selected charging pedestal.

Despite the differences in construction, Blume also confirmed that production versions of the Taycan and E-tron will feature similar lithium-ion battery technology. The Mission E platform is also rumoured to form the basis of an all-electric Bentley sports auto.

With new so-called J1 architecture that will enable fast-charging to 80% in just 15 minutes, the Taycan will reach the market with one of the most high-tech powertrains used on an electric vehicle yet. The concept also features four-wheel steering and can send power to whichever wheel is best able to deploy it, thanks to a torque vectoring system.

Boasting a 0-60mph acceleration time of less than 3.5 seconds, the high performance EV supercar is powered by two electric motors producing more than 600PS and is said to cover more than 300 miles on a single charge.

At one test carried out in the Arctic Circle in a temperature of minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit, Taycan was tested against its most serious competitor Tesla Model S and Model X.
