Rather than the swirling camouflage that many automaker’s use on their test mules, Porsche prefers to equip vehicles with simple, black panels. The pieces make it even harder to determine what parts are for production and which bits are prototype components. Here, the coverings over the headlights, C-pillars, and much of the rear indicate that these sections aren’t final yet.

It features a vertical divider in the middle, which is home to a massive Chevrolet emblem. Further down, the bumper accommodates new fog lamps and what appears to be an additional air intake at the bottom.

Cold-weather development of the Porsche Mission E continues, and a new spy video provides a variety of views of the upcoming EV's testing on snowy streets. This is a great opportunity to see the upcoming electric sedan from every angle.

The general shape of this test mule suggests that Porsche is keeping the production version close to the look of the concept. A sleek silhouette gives the Mission E a family resemblance with the Panamera.

The Mission E will be Porsche’s first dedicated EV to hit the market. The concept promised a vehicle with 590 horsepower (400 kilowatts) and the ability to reach 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in less than 3.5 seconds. The sedan had an estimated driving range of 310 miles (500 kilometers) in the notoriously optimistic NEDC test.

According to Porsche, the Mission E will have a starting cost in line with an entry-level Panamera, which will give it a base price around $85,000. The company will offer multiple power outputs, so buyers will easily be able to spend more money on the model.

The Mission E will be just the beginning of Porsche’s fully electric models. According to rumors, EV variants of the Panamera and Cayenne will follow it, but they’ll potentially only be available in specific markets – like China.

How Not to Die Shoveling out Your Driveway .
Across the country, snow shoveling is behind thousands of injuries and as many as 100 deaths each year. That's according to the National Safety Council, which cautions that picking up a shovel and moving multiple pounds of the white stuff can put a large strain on the heart. That's especially true for folks who've spent the previous months doing nothing much physical. Pushing a heavy snow blower can also cause injury, while cold weather can increase your heart rate and blood pressure, the safety council warns. The cold can make blood clot more readily and constrict arteries, which decrease blood supply. And by the way, the council adds, that's true even for healthy people. But those over the age of 40 or who are relatively inactive should be especially careful, the organization says. Here are the council's tips to shovel safely: Do not shovel after eating or while smoking Take it slow and stretch out before you begin Shovel only fresh, powdery snow; it's lighter Push the snow rather than lifting it If you do lift it, use a small shovel or only partially fill the shovel Lift with your legs, not your back Do not work to the point of exhaustion Further, if you have a history of heart disease, do not shovel without a doctor's permission. And if you feel tightness in your chest or dizziness, stop right away.
