Porsche unveils electric Boxster E

German car manufacturer Porsche has unveiled its latest electric vehicle, the Porsche Boxster E - but sadly it's only a prototype for now.

The car, which takes the company's iconic styling and updates it for the 21st century, features front and rear electric motors for all-wheel drive - with a claimed power output of 240 horsepower, giving it the ability to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a mere 5.3 seconds.

That impressive power is provided by a 29KWh battery pack, which the company claims allows the prototype to travel around 100 miles on a single charge - and to do so remarkably quickly.

"The electrical vehicle is a central challenge of the coming years, and the engineers at Porsche would like to contribute with their usual excellence to help it to be resolved," claimed Porsche chief executive Matthias Müller at the prototype's unveiling ceremony. "The Boxster E prototypes will help us, serving as mobile laboratories in solving the practical problems of electric vehicles the way that our customers expect."

Sadly, that last sentence provides a clue as to Porsche's plans for the Boxster E: for now, the vehicles are likely to remain test model prototypes, with no immediate plans afoot to create a retail model.

For now, fans of electric and hybrid vehicles who want a Porsche will need to stick with the company's 918 Spyder.
