GM GM, water sports enthusiasts and tech aficionados! Buckle up, because I've got a tale that's going to make waves in the world of luxury boating. Picture this: the sleek design of Porsche, not on the asphalt, but cutting through the ocean waves. That's right, Porsche is diving into the boating world, teaming up with the legendary Frauscher Shipyard to create something truly spectacular – the Frauscher x Porsche 850 Fantom Air.
Now, imagine cruising on a boat that's as electrifying as it is elegant. This isn't just any boat; it's an electric sports boat that screams luxury and performance. The 850 Fantom Air is a dream come true for those who love the open sea but are conscious about their carbon footprint.
It's like the Tesla of the seas, but with that unmistakable Porsche flair.
The heart of this beauty? The same tech that's going to power the future all-electric Porsche Macan. We're talking about a state-of-the-art electric motor and a lithium-ion high voltage battery that's all Porsche. And the best part? You can charge this baby at DC fast-charging stations, just like your electric car. Imagine docking at a marina and plugging in your boat alongside electric cars. That's some futuristic stuff right there!
But it's not just about what's under the hood. The design, oh boy, the design! Studio F.A. Porsche has waved its magic wand over the helmstand, giving it that sleek, sophisticated look that Porsche is famous for. And the interior? Pure luxury. It's like sitting in a high-end sports car, but with the added bonus of the ocean breeze in your hair.
Now, let's talk numbers. This isn't just a pretty face; it's got the muscle too. The 850 Fantom Air boasts a top speed of 85 km/h (that's about 46 knots for the nautical folks). And with a range of around 45 km at cruising speed, it's perfect for those blissful days exploring bays and harbors.
But here's the real kicker – Porsche isn't new to this game. Way back in 1959, they dabbled in boat engines, so this isn't just a car company making a boat.
It's a legendary brand returning to its nautical roots, and they're doing it in style.
Set to launch in 2024, the Frauscher x Porsche 850 Fantom Air is not just a boat; it's a statement. It's about embracing the future, where sustainability and luxury go hand in hand. So, for those who've always dreamed of owning a Porsche but love the sea more than the streets, your dream boat is almost here.
And for the rest of us? Well, we can dream, can't we? Maybe one day we'll be lucky enough to take this electric dream for a spin on the high seas. Until then, let's just admire this beautiful fusion of technology and luxury, where Porsche meets the ocean.
