Porsche wrote, "With its exclusive Light Grey Metallic paint, the study is also immediately recognizable as a Porsche from the back".

Born from racing: the new 2019 911 GT3 RS with a 520hp naturally aspirated engine With the 2019 911 GT3 RS, Porsche will also be presenting the most powerful naturally aspirated road-going 911 ever in Geneva.

In Geneva, Porsche wants Tesla to bend the knee to the Mission E Cross Turismo electric crossover.

Everything in the cabin has been created to be flexible enabling everyday practicality or, in the words of Porsche: "Modern load-carrying systems facilitate the transport of surfboards or a Porsche e-bike". "It will be fast to drive, but also quick to recharge and able to replicate its performance time after time".

The electric crossover concept is about four inches longer than the original Mission E coupe.

Porsche was at the Geneva Motor Show this year where they showed off their new Porshe Mission E Cross Turismo concept.

But is it Porsche's future?

A new Destination App launches with the Mission E Cross Turismo and connects with the auto for planning weekends trips, destination ideas, plotting routes and even selecting the chassis, music, climate control and lighting settings for certain sections. Porsche aims to check if there's a market for such zero-emission "Cross Utility Vehicle" or CUV. Whether that means it can handle something rougher than a gravel road - or post-winter potholes in MI - remains to be seen.

Porsche claims it to have an acceleration of 0-100km/h in under 3.5 seconds. Lithium ion batteries will likely be mounted in the floor. Although unconfirmed, the car's total range is expected to mirror the Mission E at 310 miles.

The vehicle features all-wheel drive thanks to two permanent magnet synchronous motors that drive both axles. Torque numbers aren't available, but the sports auto concept was rated at 664 pound-feet.

This propels the Mission E Cross Turismo to 100kmph in less than 3.5 seconds, and takes 12 seconds to get to 200kmph, with an electronically limited top speed of 250kmph. "Multiple accelerations are possible in direct succession without loss of performance", Porsche says, clearly aiming it at Tesla.

Stylistically, the second of Porsche's EVs adopts the smooth body surfacing of the Mission E sedan together with characteristic off-road cues such as wheel-arch cladding and underbody protection.
