The electric Porsche 718 has been officially confirmed: it will have a mid-engine character.

Porsche reported on last year’s work and shared plans for the future: as expected, the next generation of the junior sports car with the index 718 will be all-electric.

A proprietary platform is being developed for the electric Porsche 718, designed to preserve the mid-engine driving character of the model, with market entry expected in 2025.

Last fall at the Munich Motor Show Porsche showed an electric Mission R concept in which car enthusiasts and experts immediately saw the harbinger of a new generation 718, but only today the company has officially confirmed that work on the electric Porsche 718 is indeed underway.

If the platform of the current 718 was electrified for the concept, a completely new electric vehicle platform will be developed for the next generation of production sports cars, because, according to Porsche engineers, any conversion is a collection of compromises that prevent making the perfect car.

Nevertheless, the basic layout of the new Porsche 718 will be the same as in the Mission R concept: the battery is not located in the floor, and behind the backs of the driver and the only passenger, it will make the most low seating and achieve the same weight distribution as in the gasoline Porsche 718 medium-engined.

Electric motors, of course, will be between the wheels and probably the first time we’ll see all-wheel drive Porsche 718 (gasoline cars — only rear-wheel drive), but the base versions may be offered with rear-wheel drive.

No official technical details are available yet.

We would remind you that the Mission R concept has a two-motor power plant with a capacity of 1,088 hp and a 900-volt battery with a capacity of 82 kWh. The Mission R accelerates to 100 km/h in 2,5 s, the top speed is more than 300 km/h.

The platform of the new Porsche 718, which still does not have its own designation, can be used for future electric sports car brands Audi and Lamboghini.

By the way, the British company Lotus Cars has chosen a similar strategy: its new modular platform E-Sports designed for electric models in the variant with the battery behind the back of the driver and passenger will be used on sports cars Lotus Type 135 and the new Alpine A110 — both novelties will enter the market in 2026 and probably become the main competitor for the new Porsche 718, which will be offered as before with coupe (Cayman) and convertible (Boxster) bodies.

For its electric sports cars, Porsche will not only make the original platforms, but also the original batteries.

By 2030 electric cars should account for 80% of Porsche’s sales. The internal combustion engine models (primarily the 911) are planned to be saved, albeit in small runs, with climate-neutral fuel.

As for the results in 2021, Porsche, as expected, against the background of the COVID-19 pandemic and the growing social stratification of society, set an absolute sales record: 301,915 cars were sold, which is 10.9% more than in 2020.

The most popular model was the younger Macan crossover (expected to change generations in 2023): 88,362 units sold (+13.1%). (+13.1%), in second place — the older crossover Cayenne (83,071 units, -10.5%), in third place — electric family Taycan (41,296 pcs., +106.3%).

The company’s revenue in 2021 was 33.1 billion euros (+15.5%), profit after tax — 4 billion euros (+27.5%).

The main market for Porsche cars last year was China (almost 96,000 units sold), and this despite the fact that Porsche does not yet have local production in China, that is, its cars are sold with a huge duty surcharge.

The sales of Porsche in Russia in 2021 amounted to 6,262 vehicles.
