Sports car brands such as Porsche and Lamborghini are losing the speed crown to lesser-known rivals offering electric supercars boasting record acceleration.Croatian manufacturer Rimac entered the fray at this week's Geneva auto show with its Concept Two car, priced at a hefty 1.7 million euros ($2.11 million).Powered by four electric engines and capable of hitting 100 kmph in 1.95 seconds, Concept Two's straight-line acceleration is up there with the new roadster from U.S. electric vehicle pioneer Tesla.A more surprising entrant comes in the form of Volkswagen's Spanish brand Seat, better known for the compacts and sport-utility vehicles it makes for the mass market.That may sound somewhat sedate compared with the Rimac car, but it still beats the 4.5 seconds of Porsche's petrol-powered 370-horsepower 911 Carrera T.Mission E electric cars will be capable of rapid 800-volt charging, beating Tesla's 480-volt superchargers.
