Now that Porsche’s 918 Spyder, an asphalt-shredding supercar that gets 67 miles per gallon, has proven hybrid cars don’t have to be ugly econoboxes, the Porsche’s Mission E concept car is reinventing electric cars. Powered by a 600 hp electric motor, the Mission E looks like a Panamera that has been restyled by NASA. The performance is rocket-quality, owing to the fact that electric motors deliver 100% of their torque instantly, launching the car from zero to 60 in 3.5 seconds.
