BBC News - First Porsche revealed to be an electric car from 1898
As a Porsche fan, this is an amazing discovery to me even though it is well known that Professor Porsche did design and build electric cars a few years later. I only wish that the modern Porsche company would get off its butt and offer a modern EV sports car. They are very slow in their EV vehicle development. The 918 doesn't count (way too expensive and the electric motor is not the primary power source), the Panamera hybrid battery is too small, and the two converted Boxster EVs done a few years ago had totally inadequate range.
"The P1 could reach speeds of up to 21mph (34km/h) and travel up to 49 miles on a single charge."
If you think about it - the drive time (in minutes) that you got between charge stops was the same as that of the Model S.
