From design to performance, here are all the juicy details surrounding Porsche's first-ever electric sedan.

Porsche is on a mission; that mission is to bring to market an electric vehicle that is both better looking and more advanced than some of its closest competitors, particularly Tesla. For the first time in the German automaker's long and storied history, which dates back more than 86 years, Porsche will offer an electric vehicle building on the bones of the Mission E concept dubbed... the Taycan. Questionable name aside, it promises to be a pretty big deal.

Previewed initially at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, Porsche is finally putting the finishing touches on the production version more than two years later. Spy photos have given us our best look yet at the upcoming EV – most recently putting its performance credentials to the test on the Nurburgring – and in preparation, Porsche has invested more money and even more manpower into its facilities.

Admittedly, we're still more than a year away from an official debut, but until then, here's everything you need to know about the upcoming Porsche Taycan.
