In keeping with its dedication to speed and performance, Porsche has built an electric concept car that is not only efficient but shockingly quick as well. While experts aren’t optimistic about this Porsche Cayman concept making it to Orland Park, Frankfort, or Crown Point dealerships anytime soon, the automaker has taken the first steps toward a sustainable supercar that has us hoping for an electric future.

Porsche’s Research Model Looks Promising

The Porsche Cayman E-volution concept car delivered heart-stopping performance in tests, accelerating to 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds as reported by CNET. This time was faster than the current 718 Cayman S model but, as exciting as that was, Porsche is more excited about the vehicle’s charging system. The Porsche electric vehicle utilized what Porsche refers to as Turbo Charging – a new fast-charging system that can deliver an 80% battery charge in only 15 minutes. This means that drivers could potentially plug their car in, step inside to grab a cup of coffee, come back and drive another hundred miles or more. And with the 320-kW charging capacity, the Porsche delivers twice the capacity of the Tesla supercharger system, making it a front-runner in the all-electric market.

Current Porsche Cayman Highlights

While drivers in Orland Park, Frankfort, and Crown Point might not be able to get their hands on one of these impressive concept cars now, they can get behind the wheel of a Porsche Cayman, which offers some beguiling features of its own:

  • Potent Engines: Drivers can choose from the 2.0 L 4-cylinder turbocharged boxer engine capable of 300 hp or the 2.5 L 4-cylinder turbocharged boxer engine that generates 350 hp.
  • Porsche Connect: Porsche Connect with Porsche Communication Management allows drivers to connect their smartphone and using the in-dash touchscreen display to make calls, stream music, get travel information, and monitor the vehicle’s vital systems.
  • Advanced Safety: Porsche focuses on keeping cabin occupants safer with advanced airbags which include the Porsche side impact protection system, as well as performance brakes, bi-xenon headlights, a high-strength reinforced safety cage, and much more.
