Porsche Boxster and Cayman's Next Generation With Full Electric Power Train

Porsche Boxster and Cayman's Next Generation With Full Electric Power Train. It is now a known fact that Boxster and Cayman substitutes will be equipped with a purely electric power train. The disclosure was made a few months ago by Lutz Meschke, vice president of the Porsche Board of Directors at the Taycan launch ceremony.

It seems that the electric convertible and the coupe will be equipped with two electric motors with a combined power of 400 horsepower, which would place them between the GTS and the Spyder / GT4 in terms of power.

 Porsche Boxster and Cayman's Next Generation With Full Electric Power Train

Apparently, cars are being developed around an aluminum monocoque and will be available with rear-wheel drive or AWD. Logic tells us that the first will probably include a single electric motor that drives the rear axle, just as the Taycan sedan is expected to give birth to a more accessible single-engine version.

Interestingly, the report continues to mention that the Electric Boxster and Cayman will share the material with an Audi TTE and the revival of the Lamborghini Urraco. Sold between 1972 and 1979, the raging bull takes the form of a 2 + 2 coupe written by Marcello Gandini and powered by a V8 that is offered at different stages of production.

Rimac will participate in the development of sports cars with zero emissions after Porsche's decision to increase its stake in the Croatian company to 15.5%. Top Gear believes that Macan's premium electric platform (EPP) could also serve as a base for Boxster and Cayman Electric. TG also believes that the arrival of electric vehicles will not mark the end of traditional versions, as it could take a period of two to three years when the ICE and EV models coexist peacefully.

Meanwhile, Porsche has not finished with the Cayman of the current generation because the company hinted that it would propose a GT4 RS hardcore version, which we could have already seen in the test.
