It seems German automaker Porsche is all set to join the ranks of Tesla when it unveils its first all electric model at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. In all probability the car will be named Pajun and will share some similarities with the Audi A6 in terms of look and overall appearance.

It is likely that the Pajun will carry a setup similar to the e-tron where the car may have a similar 92kWh battery combined with an electric motor which will be capable of doling out a peak output of something around 456bhp and a max torque of 920Nm.
This first all electric venture of Porsche is expected to hit the production lines in the year 2019 at the earliest.

On moving inside, the carmaker had used a tablet for the infotainment system but the central console seems lifted from Porsche Cayenne.
