Porsche Shows off Electric Cayman, Turbo Charging

Porsche's latest is an all-electric Cayman that can charge almost three-times faster than a Tesla Supercharger.

The company has brought there the Cayman e-volution - not a concept per se, but more of a research vehicle that signals the introduction of the 800 volts charging voltage system, all the while retaining the classic sports auto credentials, with an acceleration to 62 mph (100 kph) in 3.3 seconds and a range of 200 kilometers. It's a research vehicle that can charge at a massive rate.

Nintendo Sold Nearly 370K Mini Super Famicoms in Four Days
The folks over at the Japanese site Ninten-Switch.com dove into the trademark filing and came back with a lot of information. With the success of the NES Mini and the SNES Mini , it would be surprising if more Minis were not in the works.

Unveiled at the Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS) in Stuttgart, the Cayman e-volution boasts a 0-60mph time of 3.1 seconds - which is more than a second faster than a petrol-powered Cayman S - and a range of 124 miles. This is just a hint at the future.

Unlike most production EVs today, the unique concept makes use of the Porsche Turbo Charging system. The system can also charge two cars simultaneously providing them with 160kW of power each. A concept created to show that Porsche believes electric can still be sporty. And with the Turbo Charging name, Porsche can still put that lovely Turbo script on the back of cars. The system is a collaborative development between Porsche Engineering and ADS-TEC, and is particularly suitable for use in areas where the distribution system is subject to power limitations.

The system is a collaborative development between Porsche Engineering and ADS-TEC, created to be used "in areas where the distribution system is subject to power limitations". Soon, Porsche, Audi, BMW, Daimler and Ford plan to build a network of these fast charging stations along European traffic routes by 2020 via a joint venture.
