All-electric Porsche 718 sports car confirmed

Blume also confirmed that Porsche is working on a hybrid version of the 911.

Porsche CEO, Oliver Blume, has confirmed that the next generation of the 718 sports car range, will be offered exclusively with an electric powertrain. The Porsche 718 range, which consists of the Boxster and Cayman, will go fully electric, with its debut scheduled for some time during the mid-decade.

The Porsche 718 sports cars will be the third all-electric offering from the German brand, after the Taycan and the upcoming Macan EV. It will, however, be the first-ever 2-seater EV sports car from Porsche.

Blume also stated that the electric 718 will carry forward the typical dimensions of a roadster. The EV sports car could come with both RWD and AWD configurations. Reports suggest that the 718 EV range will be built at the brand’s Stuttgart factory, on the same production line as the 911.

Blume also confirmed that Porsche is working on a hybrid version of the 911.
