Team Project: Porsche Mission E

In a late evening chat between the team members, we had a spark of idea, "we should do a team "chop", just like the good old days. The seed has been planted and so we searched for a subject, we all agreed on Mission E, as it had the classic Porsche lines, but with a twist. We loved the buldgy fenders and the low waist line, but it was a 4-door coupe, so that had to go away.
