Porsche Reveals Electric Car Plan

Porsche will have an electric car on sale in five to ten years, according to company boss Michael Macht.

Speaking to German magazine Welt am Sonntag, Macht said that Porsche is working “intensively” on an electrically powered sports car.

However, he added that it would take some time until a marketable model could be introduced “with a reasonable reach, achieving the same handling characteristics of a gasoline engine.”

He added: “I could imagine that we will drive the first vehicles in as soon as five to ten years.”

Macht also predicted that Porsche would near double its annual sales to 150,000 cars a year in the mid to long-term, so long as new models are added to the range.
