So do I just call up my local Porsche dealer and ask for a salesman and tell him I want to put a deposit down on a Mission-E?

Yeah, because that's what typically causes a company to stop producing something. They sell too many at too high a price.

This will be a disaster. Mark my words, this will go down in history books as a major fail and will hurt the company something serious.

The only people that want this are the Euro socialist politicians. Consumer demand IS NOT the driver here. I foresee tough times ahead for PAG.

They've drank the kool-aid and the buzz won't wear off.

"Porsche plans for 50% of its production to be electric within 6 years, which is more aggressive than any other major automaker, and they are talking about all-electric instead of just plug-ins."

^^ GOOD LUCK

I will put Mission-E in two spots in my garage. One for the Mrs. and one for me.

She already owns a Tesla Model S and I'll convert from my incoming Pana Turbo S e-Hybrid when the time comes.

After driving her Model S for the past five years, our family is sold on PEVs.

If you truly believe that, put some money on it. Short VW stock and make a bundle of money.

Agreed I had two electric cars... Fiat and BMWi3..cant wait for the mission E. I suspect my 2106 Targa, to be the last IC car I will own. Clearly Porsche has put millions into RD and now they are ready to put that into DD's

After trying out Teslas, I see an electric Porsche in my future. Instant torque/responsiveness would be my reason...not necessarily environmental. I can also rationalize why electric motors coupled with a high reving NA engine could be a transitional sweet spot.

Having said this, I can’t help but think about political/economic reasons such as Germany’s lack of oil-based power generation advantage versus its electric (coal and investments in renewable energies) power plant advantage. Follow the money.

Just to remind you PAG was to near to bankruptcy a few years ago. Then against everyones advice they built SUV's It saved the company as now more then 75% of their cars are SUV's The 911, et.al are drops in the bucket. The GT3s are a MINOR, minor part of PAG/PNA. The dealers are the ones getting rich off the insane ADM's that some are paying. The mission E is going to be HUGH. Sorry, it's the future for every car manufacturer I for one cant wait!
