It's gorgeous and it creates jobs -- seriously, it should run for office.

Maybe Porsche should run for President. When it comes time to build its all-new, electric sports car, Porsche plans to add a number of jobs within its ranks. Looking to work with the German automaker? Now's your chance, maybe.

Porsche originally estimated that its Mission E project would add some 1,000 jobs. Now, it's upping that estimate to 1,400. It will also expand its number of available apprenticeships from 150 to 220, Reuters reports. Most of the jobs will be located at Porsche's Zuffenhausen facilities, where a new paint shop and assembly line will be dedicated to Mission E production.

"With the factory for the Mission E, we will usher in a new era with new technologies", said Andreas Haffner, a member of Porsche's executive board, in a statement. "That's why we're hiring new people -- but it's just as important to improve the skills of our current workforce." The company claims to receive more than 140,000 applications each year.

The Mission E is slated to move from concept to reality before the end of the decade.
