And here it is with a little less tire smoke. It's a 1,000-plus-horsepower, all-electric race car from Porsche.

Where the fuel tank would normally be up front, there's instead one battery back.

Out back? Another battery pack.

On the floor on the passenger side? You guessed it, another battery pack. The three packs provide 82 kilowatt-hours of energy storage.

Those battery packs, combined with the regenerative braking, provide enough juice for a 30-minute sprint race.
