Porsche has unveiled an electric version of its iconic Boxster sports car called the Boxster E -- the first of three that will be built. The prototype has 240 horsepower provided by two electric motors attached to the front and lowest priced viagra rear axles, can go from 0 to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds and should have a 100-mile range per charge. All of the electric drivetrain technology was provided by parent-company Volkswagen.
The German carmaker will test the three Boxster E prototypes around the Stuttgart region and use them as "mobile laboratories" to test and improve electric car technology for future Porsche models.
Last year, Porsche said it would make a hybrid version of all its models and so far has debuted a 911 GTC R Hybrid race car, a 918 Spyder hybrid, and a hybrid Cayenne SUV, but the Boxster E is its first all-electric vehicle. While there are no immediate plans for a production model, I don't think it will be too long before we see it.
