Porsche GT4 e Race Car
Porsche is with its GT4 e-Performance race car in Sweden. Here in Sweden, the electric vehicle has undergone a series of tests to prove its credentials. These tests are to prove the performance of the Porsche GT4 e race car in rough weather conditions. The GT4 e-Performance Race car has just participated in the “Race of Champions” event. The event took place just 60 miles south of the Arctic Circle, under extremely cold conditions.
Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, known as Porsche, is a German automobile manufacturer. It has headquarters in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. The GT4 e-Performance presents a preview of the upcoming Porsche Cayman/Boxster EVs.

The GT4 e-Performance comes fitted with an 82-kWh battery pack. This Performance electric vehicle is an All-Wheel Drive vehicle. Porsche claims that the GT4 e-Performance can be charged from 5 to 80 % in just 15 minutes. It has 900-volt architecture. It is yet not known that e-Performance has two or three motors. However, the EV GT4 e produces up to 1088 hp in short bursts. It is good to share that the ‘standard’ power output of e-Performance is 603 hp.
when driven hard in a race-like condition, the GT4 e-Performance can last for about 30 minutes. This is a convenient amount of time, as each Porsche Carrera Cup race is only about half an hour long.
As we know that the Cayman/Boxster line-up by Porsche will be electric, the company is using the GT4 e-Performance as a test bed. Certainly, the experience will help in designing the upcoming EV sports cars by Porsche.
The upcoming Cayman and Boxster EVs will be built on the Premium Platform Electric chassis of Porsche. The company may launch upcoming EV line-ups with more power than the ICE versions. This is also an effort to compensate for the additional weight of a battery pack.
The electric Cayman/Boxster by Porsche may be available in early 2025. However, an electric version of the Macan crossover may arrive in 2023 itself.
