First Look at the Porsche Mission X Concept

Porsche has officially premiered its new Mission X concept which aims to be the fastest and most capable road-legal electric hypercar in the world. The new concept is presented precisely on the 75th anniversary of the car brand. On June 8, 1948, the 356 “No.1” Roadster became the first automobile bearing the name Porsche to receive its general operating permit.

“The Porsche Mission X is a technology beacon for the sports car of the future. It picks up the torch of iconic sports cars of decades past: like the 959, the Carrera GT and the 918 Spyder before it, the Mission X provides critical impetus for the evolutionary development of future vehicle concepts,” said Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG in a press release. “Daring to dream and dream cars are two sides of the same coin for us: Porsche has only remained Porsche by constantly changing.”

Described as a concept study, the Mission X has the relatively compact dimensions of the Carrera GT and 918 Spyder with 20-inch front wheels and 21-inch rear wheels. Pictured in a special “Rocket metallic” paint color, the hypercar features distinct elements including a carbon-weave finish below the beltline, transparent aeroblades on the rear axles, a lightweight glass dome extending above the cockpit, Le Mans-style doors, and distinct headlights.

While Mission X is currently a concept, Porsche suggests it will go into production in the near future.⁠ If so, Porsche has visions of it being “the fastest road-legal car on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife, with “downforce values that are well in excess of those delivered by the current 911 GT3 RS” and “significantly improved charging performance with its 900-volt system architecture and charge roughly twice as quickly as Porsche’s current frontrunner, the Taycan Turbo S.”
