The Porsche Macan is one of the most expensive cars on the planet
Porsche’s new Macan, the most technologically advanced electric car ever, has sold out in its hometown of Zurich.
Porsche sold about 10,000 units in Zurich alone, but the car is still selling.
“We are selling out of the car, but we will keep making more and more,” Porsche chief engineer Martin Winterkorn said.
The Macan sold out of its original production run of 2,600, and sold out at auction for just over $3 million in March.
The car is powered by an electric motor that’s made of lithium-ion batteries, and Porsche says it can produce 500kWh of power.
It can go from 0 to 60mph in 4.8 seconds.
It has a top speed of about 220mph.
“I think the Macan has the most important part of its design, the chassis, which is a result of the technology,” Winterkordens said.
“It has an electric drivetrain, so the car feels like a sports car.”
The car was originally unveiled in 2011, and was the first electric sports car to be mass produced.
The electric drive is a massive improvement over the conventional motors.
Porsche says the Macans lithium-air batteries are a tenth of the weight and can go up to a speed of 300mph.
The company is also working on a new version of the Macane, which could be ready in 2021.
“The Macan’s the pinnacle of modern sports cars,” Wintercken said.
He expects the Macanes to sell out before the year’s end.
“At the moment, we are only selling about 10-15,000 cars,” he said.
