The Volkswagen Crowd has tasked Porsche with creating a new platform for electric supercars.

According to Automotive Tidings Europe, Porsche is set to develop a platform for electric sports cars and supercars, which could possibly be employed by Audi and Lamborghini. Reportedly called SPE, it would be the Volkswagen Group’s third view-built architecture for full-electric cars.

The new platform could be used to underpin an R8 e-tron replacement, if Audi decides to establish another electric supercar. Lamborghini hasn’t been shy about the possibilities of thriving electric either, recently unveiling the Terzo Millennio concept last November.

The write-up says a senior Volkswagen Group executive confirmed Porsche has been assigned to advance an EV platform “for two-door sports cars and supercars.” It is however, still in the break of dawn stages as the first vehicles riding on the platform aren’t scheduled to arrive until after 2025.

Currently, the other dedicated moving architectures from the Volkswagen Group are the MEB and PPE platforms. The MEB will underpin Volkswagen’s upcoming I.D. kinsfolk of vehicles, and will also be used by Skoda, Seat, and Audi. The PPE platform is being jointly developed by Audi and Porsche and intent be used for three EV model families.

In the near future, Porsche is focusing on getting the Work E to market, its first full-electric car.
