ATLANTA — Porsche's midengine Cayman coupe and Boxster convertible will go all-electric around 2025, according to dealers who attended a meeting on the matter with brand executives here.
The repositioning of the two models is part of a drive by the German sports car maker to electrify the bulk of its product line in this decade, the dealers were told.
According to retailers at the presentation, Porsche used the occasion to lay out its strategy to transition from combustion engines to an electrified lineup. The automaker expects battery-powered vehicles and plug-in hybrids to account for more than 80 percent of deliveries worldwide in 2030, the dealers said.
The front-end design of the Boxster EV, which has not been shown in public, is similar to that of the Taycan electric fastback. The rear borrows the full-width taillight design from the Taycan, according to dealers who were shown the convertible.
"The car looks stunning," one dealer told Automotive News. "It looks really sporty."
