With a claimed 500km (310 mile) range to just edge out Tesla Model S P90 D's 480km, the 439kW Porsche Mission E can soar from 0-60 mph in "under 3.5 seconds," driven by its dual-electric motors which provide power in an all wheel drive configuration.

Further featuring regenerative braking, Porsche claims this car can charge from flat to 80 percent capacity in only 15 minutes, reportedly made possible due to an 800 volt system. Although this is impressive just in itself, this claimed charging time is around twice as fast as what Tesla's Model S currently has on offer.

The body is made out of aluminum, carbon-fiber reinforced polymer and steel in order to keep the car light. Currently it's only in the 'concept car' stages, however we are told to expect a real-life model to feature in Frankfurt in a few days time.
