Porsche is working hard for the final phase of the development of Mission E electric sportscar. One of their strategy is to get the prototype driven by celebrities, and racers, and get their feedback on the product. Getting stars onboard also serves as promotional activity for the upcoming all-electric car. After Mark Webber, former F1 and endurance car racer, it’s Adam Levine, the Maroon 5 lead singer who got a chance to drive the Mission E at the Porsche Experience Centre in Los Angeles.
The video shows that Porsche is well down the track in getting towards its goal of the Mission E appearing in showrooms in 2019. They have now got enough built to let the singer have a go in one. And the really good news for the developers as Adam seems genuinely impressed and pleased with the car.
When the concept version was originally shown it was claimed to develop 590 horsepower. Since then there have been rumors of 402, 536 and even 670 horsepower versions, but it's quite likely there will be multiple versions with different power ratings offered for sale at different price points.

Of course, the impressive amount of available horsepower wasn't the only bold claim made about the Mission E when Porsche first unveiled it to the world. It was also said that the car's battery pack would be capable of being recharged from depleted to 80 percent of capacity in just 20 minutes using an 800-volt fast charger.
Porsche is currently working on installing these chargers in the US and elsewhere to take advantage of the fast-charging feature, but what's expected to get potential buyers really excited is the way this revolutionary Porsche is expected to drive.
