Race version of Porsche Cayman
According to an earlier media report, Porsche's chairman confirmed that fully-electric versions of the 718 Boxster and the 718 Cayman will launch within three years. Yesterday, Porsche's chairman Oliver Blume confirmed that the company has "prototypes of the 718 running in electric now, and a hybrid prototype is being built...although it is not yet clear whether it would be a plug-in hybrid or hybrid."

That being said, we can expect to see fully electric renditions of the 718 Boxster and Cayman by 2022 and possibly a set of hybrid versions as well. According to the report, hybrid models are being pursued to provide drivers with a range over 186 miles without significantly altering the mid-engine platform architecture.
