“At the Frankfurt Motor Show, VW Group boss said it wants an electric version of every model in its family by 2030 and that includes Porsche. Consequently, the Stuttgart sports car maker is looking at the most advanced battery tech it could use in electric variants of the 911, Cayman and Boxster. Weckbach also touched upon the solid-state battery issue for Porsche 911. It is too early to talk about details. But we will make it only if we have a solution that is really working with the 911. Solid-state batteries promise longer range and faster charging times. Solid-state technology might make its way to limited-edition cars soon enough, but it is not yet feasible for mass-produced vehicles, even from a luxury brand like Porsche. Weckbach believes that production cars with solid-state batteries are at least, if not more, five years away from becoming a commercial reality. Finding a cost-effective and efficient solid-state battery for electric vehicles could prove equivalent to finding the golden fleece in Greek mythology but it will be done. When this could happen depends on the evolution of battery power and cell density. We see potential new battery technology coming that may change the game again, but they are still in development,” he said, referring to solid-state batteries.” Researchers say a solid-state battery pack could give electric vehicles 500 to 1,000 miles of range on a single charge. The technology is advancing rapidly and could be ready for commercial use within a few years."
