Totally agree!!!

If the rear doors cannot be opened without opening the front doors, they are useless when parked in a tight spot or against a wall.

If you have use those doors before, you will not ask the question why :)

I haven't read much about this but why do the front door need to be opened before the back ones?

This door arrangement doesn't seemed to be killing sales for Rolls-Royce.

it's the way the locking mechanism works

the door strike has to be somewhere and on something fixed

Yes, I see.  I'll ask on the stand on Thursday. Maybe the doors lock on the bottom.

I like it; but goodnight Tesla?  No mention of technical aspects at all  :scratchchin:

Nice to see a mainstream manufacturer finally taking the Tesla challenge seriously  :thumbsup:

although this is a 4 door car, i expect if it is even 80% of this when in production it will not be an overly practical car anyway, rear room will be compromised, it will be to low for most people to get over any speed bumps, possibly a little wide etc, 

but if they brought this to market i'm sure people would still be lining up to buy it.

Hence the question mark in the thread title!

Here are some technical details

Drive system: over 600 hp with technologies from endurance racing

The drive system of the Mission E is entirely new, yet it is typical Porsche, i.e. proven in motor racing. Two permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) - similar to those used in this year's Le Mans victor, the 919 hybrid - accelerate the sports car and recover braking energy. The best proof of a Porsche is 24 hours of top racing performance and a 1-2 finish. Together the two motors produce over 600 hp, and they propel the Mission E to a speed of 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and to 200 km/h in under twelve seconds. In addition to their high efficiency, power density and uniform power development, they offer another advantage: unlike today's electric drive systems, they can develop their full power even after multiple accelerations at short intervals. The need-based all-wheel drive system with Porsche Torque Vectoring - which automatically distributes torque to the individual wheels - transfers the drive system's power to the road, and all-wheel steering gives precise, sporty steering in the desired direction. This makes the Mission E fit for the circuit race track; its lap time on the Nürburgring Nordschleife is under the eight-minute mark.

Everyday practicality: convenient and quick charging, over 500 km driving range

It is not just passionate sportiness that makes up a Porsche but also a high level of everyday practicality. Accordingly, the Mission E can travel over 500 km on one battery charge, and it can be charged with enough energy for around 400 km more driving range in about fifteen minutes. The reason: Porsche is a front-runner in introducing innovative 800-volt technology for the first time. Doubling the voltage - compared to today's electric vehicles that operate at 400 volts - offers multiple advantages: shorter charging times and lower weight, because lighter, smaller gage copper cables are sufficient for energy transport. A moveable body segment on the front left wing in front of the driver's door gives access to the charging port for the innovative "Porsche Turbo Charging" system. Via the 800-volt port, the battery can be charged to approximately 80 per cent of its capacity in around 15 minutes - a record time for electric vehicles. As an alternative, the technology platform can be connected to a conventional 400-volt charging station, or it can be replenished at home in the garage via convenient inductive charging by simply parking over a coil embedded in the floor of the garage from which the energy is transferred without cables to a coil on the car's underbody.
