Porsche shows off Cayman e-volution at Electric Vehicle Symposium

The company has brought there the Cayman e-volution - not a concept per se, but more of a research vehicle that signals the introduction of the 800 volts charging voltage system, all the while retaining the classic sports auto credentials, with an acceleration to 62 mph (100 kph) in 3.3 seconds and a range of 200 kilometers.

Porsche has built a new electric version of the Cayman sports auto which is being dubbed the e-volution.

Why Customers Are Freaking Out Over McDonald's Szechuan Sauce
To say that yesterday's extremely limited return of McDonald's cult-classic Szechuan Sauce didn't go well is an understatement. Customers who came for the sauce waited in line for hours, some even arriving to the location late Friday night.

Although only a prototype, the Porsche Cayman E-Volution - which is on display this week at the Electric Vehicle Symposium in Stuttgart - gives an idea of where Porsche may be heading.

Russia Protests Over 'Stolen' Flags At Former US Consulate, Prompting US Denial
Russian Federation considers such a move as an "extremely unfriendly step", and demands an immediate return of the flags, the embassy added.

Apparently this technology was also manufactured for the Cayman e-volution which not only proves its viability but also that it will likely debut alongside the new Mission E. With a range of 300 miles the Mission E will be able to charge 80 per cent of its battery capacity in just 15 minutes and will be competing against other premium EVs, such as the Tesla Model S. It packs an all-electric drivetrain that sends the auto to 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds, more than a second quicker than the current 718 Cayman S. Its battery only lasts about 125 miles between charges, but that's fine, because it's never going into series production.

Also showcased at EVS was Porsche Turbo Charging, an accumulator-based fast-charging system that can reach a charging capacity of up to 320kW.

Google simplifies Android video calling
The company will let Android users start a video call directly from within the Google Phone, Contacts, and stock Messages app. With ViLTE (Video Over LTE), users can immediately switch to Video call even while in between a normal voice call.

The 800-volt system has nearly double the voltage that the Tesla Supercharger's 480-volt system has. The battery-based system was created to supplement more traditional fast-charger networks hooked up to the grid, one of which will be built in Europe by 2020.
