The Piech GT was once called the Mark Zero EV concept at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Now, the stylish electric sports car has set a date for its production. Sphere heading the process is Anton Piech, the great-grandson of Ferdinand Porsche. The 2024 Piech GT is the size of a Porsche 911 and looks like an Italian Aston Martin Vantage with a classic long hood and short tail design. The two-seater sports car is powered by three 150-kW electric motors, each producing 201-hp for a combined output of 603-hp. Piech Automotive claims the GT can travel up to 311 miles on a single charge and sprint from zero to 60 in under three seconds. It also claims it can charge 80 percent battery life in eight minutes which would undoubtedly make it a proper grand tourer.
The 2024 Piech GT arranges its power pack across the center and rear axle of the car in a T-shape formation. This layout is meant to improve weight distribution and allow for a lower seating position. The GT’s 75-kWh battery pack is sourced from the Chinese company Desten. From now until 2024, Piech Automotive will be putting its prototypes through extensive real-world environmental testing to ensure the utmost quality. Pricing has not been announced but it is safe to assume it will be competitive with most high-performance German sports cars. The Piech Automotive GT will go on sale in the U.S., Europe, and China in early 2024.
