The Porsche Cayman e-volution is not a sign of a zero-emissions two-seat sports car arriving from Porsche anytime soon. That is still years away. The Porsche Cayman e-volution is a research vehicle and demonstrates the company’s development in EV tech.

Porsche says:

The vehicle (Porsche Cayman e-volution) will not go into series production, but does give an early indication of just how sporty Porsche believes e-mobility can be.

In early 2015, the German government sponsored the ‘e-generation’ project, and Porsche Engineering played a major role in it. Under Porsche’s leadership, a research consortium developed new components for EVs and tested them in three electric sports cars based on the Porsche Boxster. Porsche said that a new project named ‘e-volution’ would follow the e-generation project.

The Porsche Cayman e-volution has a 38 kWh lithium-ion battery pack that offers a range of 200 km. It can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 200 km/h (limited). The concept car, with a charging voltage of 800 volts, shows off Porsche’s developments in fast-charging. Porsche is also showcasing Porsche Turbo Charging, its first ever accumulator-based fast charging system. Developed in collaboration by Porsche Engineering and ADS-TEC, this system is capable of achieving a charging capacity of up to 320 kW per vehicle.
