Exactly. I live in hope that when all the disguise and camouflage is removed, the finished article will still look a lot like the original concept version.

Taking it a step further....I think the Concept Mission E is the best looking 4 seater ever designed...to the brand its the equivalent of what the countach did for Lamborghini, Corvette did for GM, Mustang did for Ford. All changing the Brand perception and direction. Instead we will get a nice car that has no historic relevance. I will likely let me spot at the dealer go when the time comes if there is no change in the direction. Really saddens me...

I think size and proportions of mule and concept are almost identical, it's these changes to the front arches/bonnet (the biggest and perhaps worst looking change, really), the different bumper and front air intake, different side skirts and different wing (plus all the camo like the closed lights and possibly fake B pillar) that make it appear less sporty. Losing the suicide doors and addition of mirrors was inevitable. Maybe the mule has a higher roofline but it's very hard to make out.

It's pretty much guaranteed that the final car will not look as bad as the mules (we've seen what the covered details may end up looking like with the Cross Tourismo concept). And we might well see variants of the Mission E taking the role of lets say the Turbo or GT with more pronounced aero and lower ride height that's closer to the concept. Have to wait and see.

I agree itís still a mule, but those two pictures above prove once again that the devilís in the details, as the lines are not identical and that makes all the difference in the world. It could still turn out looking good but itís not going to look anywhere near as good as the concept car.

This is the Mission E that we want that was driven at the Porsche Experience Center in Los Angeles recently. Let's see how close it compares to the mule we've seen being driven around.

if they can build it to look like the concept car they will not be able to keep up with the demand

Really? Youíd rather have a poorly built car from a company hemorrhaging cash than one from a company that makes the worlds best and most versatile sports cars, and has been doing so for 70 years?

I used to to really want a Tesla. When the model S had its refresh I borrowed one for a weekend and thought it was amazing. But I couldnít get over what you got for the price. Now I see them failing to meet production goals, hemmoraging cash, and the cars seem to be getting less well put together, not more.

No, even if the Missin E looks like a full electric Panamera (it wonít), I still canít wait to drive this car. EVís are very attractive to me. And an EV made by Porsche? Going to rock.

Looking at this teaser video - the car has mirrors unlike the concept, but seems to retain the large wheel arches and rear wing shape of the concept unlike the prototype mules.

Or......that is the 2015 design study with some mirrors....we knew they were coming.
You are right....definitely not a mule.

This silhouette looks pretty damn sexy, and so does the rear shot. If it looks this good from these angles, then I'm OK with loosing the suicide doors.

Maybe there's hope.

For me as long as the shape of the concept is intact, the suicide doors don't matter. I am ready to buy one if the teaser is what its going to look like. It will kill tesla. If its mule, tesla has nothing to worry about.

It’s all quite odd. The Adam Levine video was released 3 weeks ago. Including suicide doors. Then the Webber version looks very average. Based on that Levine video, if they come out with the Webber version, people are going to feel completely deceived.

A fellow Renn member has seen the sports wagon off road version. He said it looked epic. So there is hope.

I'm going with the great version. Hope I’m not wrong.
