Reports have actually been swirling around about Porsche checking out the possibility of developing a model that will equal the extremely successful Tesla Model S. The Stuttgart automaker has actually stayed quite mum on the subject, but then it has always preferred to keep things a trick as long as it can. Now, a brand-new report declares that Porsche is hard at work on this project, which is internally codenamed the 717, and it handed down some info concerning its status. The source of this info is kept under wraps, so it is hard to identify what details is actually from the source and what details Car pulled from thin air. Offering Porsche’s love of secrecy, I am favoring most of Car’s info being pure speculation. That stated, I made the effort to arrange through all of it and pull out exactly what I thought was on the mark, and include 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 on the VW Group’s MSB architecture, with hints taken from the 911, making it look practically like a smaller variation of the Panamera. While some may consider this a cookie-cutter approach by Porsche, it’s the exact 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 look, this shrunken variation will ride its coattail of acceptance.
2019 Porsche 717 Interior
Inside the cabin, the 2019 porsche 717 remains a bit of a secret, however I believe that, like the outdoors, the interior will be simply a slightly smaller sized clone of the Panamera. Which is definitely not a bad thing, as the Panamera is absolutely stunning and a terrific place to spend time. Image 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 truly matters in the 2019 porsche 717, as fighting the Tesla Model S will require a delicate balance of performance and performance. Unlike the model S, which features a flat battery that also functions as the floorboards, Car Magazine claims 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 areas. Supposedly powering the 2019 porsche 717 is a four-motor system (one on each wheel) that will be offered in three different power levels: 400 horse power, 500 horse power, and 600 horse power. With a motor at each wheel, the 717 will obviously be all-wheel drive, and it will also include torque vectoring and four-wheel steering.
2019 Porsche 717 Price and Release Date
Starting price for new 2019 Porsche 717 will be around $130k and we make sure that it can be used for even higher than $150k in some more demanding trim levels. Release date of this model is going to be someplace around the spring of 2019, not prior to March.
