Porsche Electric Boxster E debuts, not up for sale just yetIt doesn’t matter if you’re a multi-billionaire with more than enough cash to sustain another 10 generations of descendants – all the money in the world still can’t let you drive home the Porsche Electric Boxster E yet even though it has debuted at the Michelin Challenge Bibendum in Berlin. The three electric test Boxsters will feature one model that comes with an all-wheel drive in the form of an electric motor on the front and rear axle, while the remaining two are rear-wheel drive machines. According to Porsche, the dual-motor Boxster E is capable of delivering Boxster S levels of driving dynamics, and that includes a 5.5-second 0-to-62 sprint with a limited top speed of 124 mph – gah, that’s nothing for a supercar, but then again with something like this, you would be more prone to cruise down the hottest night spots instead of zipping by in a jiffy to show the world that you’ve “arrived”. 

The two motors have a combined output of 241 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque, all which are fed through a single-speed transmission. As for the other two single-motor Boxster Es, they won’t rock your world since they are a whole lot slower, clocking 9.8 seconds from 0 to 62 mph with a maximum speed of 93 mph.
