Reports have been swirling around about Porsche checking out the possibility of developing a model that will measure up to the wildly successful Tesla Model S. The Stuttgart car manufacturer has actually stayed pretty mum on the topic, however then it has always chosen to keep things a secret as long as it can. Now, a brand-new report claims that Porsche is hard at work on this project, which is internally codenamed the 717, and it passed on some information concerning its status. The source of this information is kept under covers, so it is hard to determine exactly what information is in fact from the source and what details Car pulled from thin air. Giving Porsche’s love of secrecy, I am leaning toward most of Car’s details being pure speculation. That said, I took the time to sort through all of it and take out what I believed was on the mark, and add in some speculation of my own on the 717.
2019 Porsche 717 Exterior
The report is that the 2019 porsche 717 will be a four-door sedan based upon the VW Group’s MSB architecture, with cues taken from the 911, making it look practically like a smaller sized variation of the Panamera. While some may consider this a cookie-cutter method by Porsche, it’s the same formula that has been working for ages, so why change it now? Exactly what’s more, with Porsche faithful ending up being more accepting of the Panamera’s appearance, this shrunken variation will ride its coattail of acceptance.
2019 Porsche 717 Interior
Inside the cabin, the 2019 porsche 717 remains a little bit of a mystery, but I think that, like the outside, the interior will be simply a slightly smaller clone of the Panamera. And that is certainly not a bad thing, as the Panamera is absolutely spectacular and a terrific place to hang out. Photo tons of leather and other superior products and loads of tech devices to keep you amused.
2019 Porsche 717 Engine
The drivetrain is exactly what really matters in the 2019 porsche 717, as combating the Tesla Model S will need a fragile balance of efficiency and efficiency. Unlike the model S, which features a flat battery that likewise functions as the floorboards, Car Magazine declares that the 717’s design will need a topologic (mountain-like), 108-cell battery with some parts of the battery extended up into the sills and footwell locations. Apparently powering the 2019 porsche 717 is a four-motor system (one on each wheel) that will be readily available in 3 various power levels: 400 horsepower, 500 horse power, and 600 horse power. With a motor at each wheel, the 717 will certainly be all-wheel drive, and it will also consist of torque vectoring and four-wheel steering.
2019 Porsche 717 Price and Release Date
