ELECTRIC CARS

Porsche Mission X, the electric hypercar that could become the new queen of the Nürburgring

To mark the 75th anniversary of Porsche and the 100th anniversary of Le Mans, the carmaker unveiled the Mission X, an electric hypercar that represents the future of the brand. The road car, with shapes inspired by current hypercars competing in the WEC, features a carbon monocoque and a body designed to maximise downforce. 

With compact dimensions and an all-new Rocket Metallic colour scheme, the Mission X debuts the updated Porsche logo. Inside, the cabin is surrounded by a CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer) exoskeleton and distinguished by differentiated upholstery colours and the presence of a dedicated timing and telemetry element. 

Porsche envisions the Mission X as the road car capable of breaking the overall record on the Nürburgring's North Ring, thanks to its higher downforce and power-to-weight ratio of 1 kg/hp. Information on the powertrain is not yet known, but the batteries are located in the middle of the car, behind the seats.

A 75-year history
75 years of Porsche history and 100 years of Le Mans find a meeting point in the concept car unveiled at the opening of the brand's anniversary exhibition, the Porsche Mission X. Following the unveiling of the Vision 357 in January, the focus is now on the carmaker's electric future, on the same day that the first Porsche 356 Roadster was granted permission to drive on the road.

Design in service of downforce
The bodywork of the Porsche Mission X is designed with downforce in mind, with elliptical doors reminiscent of the classic 917 and classic 'Sport Prototype' proportions. The tail is wide and flat for maximum diffuser efficiency. The paintwork is in Rocket Metallic colour with exposed carbon sections and a satin finish.

Cockpit surrounded by a CFRP exoskeleton
The Mission X's cockpit is surrounded by a CFRP (Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer) exoskeleton, which is also visible from the outside thanks to glass elements. Differentiated upholstery colours highlight the driver's seat finished in 'Kalahari Grey' and the passenger seat in 'Andalusia Brown'. The steering wheel and digital instruments are part of a single lightened and compact structure.

Batteries placed in the center of the car
The Mission X's batteries are positioned in the middle of the car, behind the seats, to optimise weight distribution. They have a 900-volt architecture, ensuring significantly shorter refuelling times than the Taycan Turbo S. No details on the powertrain have been released.

Target, the all-time record for road cars at the Nürburgring north loop
Porsche has imagined the Mission X with a view to a hypothetical absolute record for road cars on the North Ring of the Nürburgring. It is expected to have significantly more downforce than the 911 GT3 RS and a power-to-weight ratio of around 1 kg/hp. There is no complete data sheet for the car yet, but Porsche may return to the subject in the future.
