Re: 2018 Genève International Motor Show

New Audi A6 gets an all-new look and some impressive tech. The new design gives Audi that more pronounced 3-box Germanic proportion and "Prestige Gap" which makes it look much less like a VW. Very sharp, should have some presence.

Re: 2018 Genève International Motor Show

thought we had this...
NetCarShow: Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Concept

With the Mission E Cross Turismo, Porsche unveiled the concept study of an electrically driven Cross Utility Vehicle (CUV) at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. This car has many talents and is aimed at people who like to spend their free time travelling, playing sport and pursuing other outdoor activities. Thanks to all-wheel drive, every ski slope is easy to reach, while the flexible interior creates space for all kinds of sports equipment and modern load-carrying systems facilitate the transport of surfboards or a Porsche e-bike.

The strengths of the four-door four-seater include an emotional design with striking off-road elements as well as an innovative display and operating concept with touchscreen and eye-tracking control. Measuring 4.95 metres in length, the concept vehicle has all-wheel drive and an 800-volt architecture, prepared for connection to the fast charging network. It can also be charged by induction, at a charging station or using the Porsche home energy storage system. The road-ready Mission E Cross Turismo builds on the Mission E study Porsche demonstrated at the 2015 International Motor Show (IAA) and uses elements that are close to series production.

The design: unmistakable Porsche DNA
A low-cut bonnet between heavily curved wings: the front of the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo reveals its relationship to the sports car icon Porsche 911 at first glance. Vertical air inlets in the front, known as air curtains, are a distinctive design feature. Another stylistic highlight are the matrix LED headlights. The brand's typical four-point daytime running lights have evolved into narrow, three-dimensional glass elements. Embedded in four sweeping wings, these also contain an innovative four-point indicator light. At the same time, the vehicle has high-performance full beams with Porsche X-Sight technology. The off-road design elements include robust wheel arch protection and door sills, a striking front spoiler and lower rear and increased ground clearance...

Variability: equipped for all mobility needs
The Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo presents a picture as to what a Turismo model with features of a crossover utility vehicle could look in series production - a car that is equally suitable for travelling, everyday life and adventure, filling the role of a versatile companion both in the city and in the countryside. The crossover model is aimed at people who like to spend their free time playing sport or pursuing other outdoor activities. Passengers stand to benefit from the flexible nature of the four-seater, which measures 1.42 metres in height. For example, the backrest of each individual seat in the rear has a load-through facility. This can be used for skis and other long equipment. The backrests themselves can be folded down. Additionally, the boot features a rail system with adjustable and removable straps. These can be used to secure items quickly and safely. To give the passengers of the Mission E Cross Turismo various mobility options beyond the car, the Porsche e-bike supports its rider with a powerful electric drive when the pedals are turned. It is a mobility offer that does means Porsche customers do not have to go without the design, technology and performance of a Porsche when they are on two wheels in their free time.


The interior: visible lightweight structures
The interior reinterprets classic Porsche elements, bringing them into the digital age. Take the dashboard, for example, which emphasises the vehicle's width and is composed of a wing-shaped upper and lower part. The instrument panel is clearly organised horizontally with an extra-wide display for the driver and front passenger. The freestanding instrument cluster is angled towards the driver and includes three circular display graphics with digital content on TFT screens. The centre console between the front seats rises towards the dash panel. In combination with the ambient lighting, the indirect lighting of the centre console creates a unique atmosphere.

The interior design features also include visible lightweight structures, which can be found on the instrument panel and other places as well as the sporty seats, reminiscent of those found in racing cars, with illuminated Porsche lettering. The door lining has innovative three-dimensional elements with a textured surface. Anodised edges in Nordic Blue on features such as the air vents and window lift modules create a contrast to the exclusive bicolour concept of the interior with aniline leather in black and light grey.

The drive: sporty e-performance thanks to output of over 600 hp...
