Porsche CEO: We are "almost over the initial hype" of electric cars

Automotive News recently got the chance to sit down with Porsche CEO Matthias Mueller to go over the company's plans for the future, and one of the juiciest tidbits to crop up from the interview came from a discussion on the possibility of a fully-electric Porsche.
