Porsche’s Mission E concept, unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, will be heading down the production line.

That’s the official word from Porsche HQ, which has assured fans that the all-electric sports car will be available to purchase as a road-going version before the end of the decade.

Porsche calls it “a clear statement about the future of the brand”, but its performance figures ensure the current crop of Porsche devotees should feel right at home behind the wheel.

The four-door coupe, four-seat concept, can hit 100km/h from rest in 3.5 seconds, thanks to the 440kW output from its all-electric powerplant.

Equally, if not more impressive, is the lithium-ion battery pack, which uses an 800-volt charging system to achieve an 80-percent charge in just 15 minutes.

Wireless charging is also a feature of the concept, as well as a claimed maximum range of over 500km, but whether all of these figures carry over to the production version or not is unclear.

"We are resolutely taking on the challenge of electric mobility,” Porsche’s Dr Oliver Blume said.

“Even with solely battery-powered sports cars, Porsche is remaining true to its philosophy and offering our customers the sportiest and technologically most sophisticated model in this market segment."

Porsche will invest €700 million (AU$1.07 billion) in its Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen facility to facilitate the new project, which includes a new assembly plant and paint shop, while the engine plant will be adapted for the production of electric motors.
