Why The Porsche Mission X Needs To Become A Reality

Porsche is back with another concept hypercar for ages to come. To celebrate 75 years of producing extraordinary sports cars, Porsche unveiled the Mission X to the public in June 2023. We have reasons to be hyped up for this piece of art. It promises to have everything to stun you from its extravagant styling to its mind-boggling performance. The Mission X shows Porsche’s never-ending need to smash Nürburgring records and prove to the world that Porsche is the leading sports and hypercar manufacturer in the world. The Mission X will feature Le Mans-style doors that open upwards. These doors are inspired by the Porsche 917. Hypercar manufacturers such as Mercedes, Pagani, Lotus, and Rimac must look out because when Porsche makes a hypercar, it defines a complete era, as it did previously with the Porsche 957, 918 Sypder, and Carrera GT. Porsche has made a strong statement by unveiling this concept EV.

The Mission X is a hypercar that is very much focused on smashing track records with its insane power. Here are some specs:

  • This hypercar is going to have a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio.
  • The Mission X will reportedly make over 1,500 horses, but Porsche has not yet confirmed this.
  • 0 to 60 MPH is expected to be under two seconds which is staggering, to say the least.
  • Porsche’s officials claim that the Mission X will generate more downforce than the track-monster 911 GT3 RS. The GT3 RS produces 409 kg (900 pounds) of downforce at 124 miles per hour.
  • It will charge twice as quickly as the Porsche Taycan Turbo S with its 900-volt system architecture.

Active aerodynamics will ensure this hypercar’s efficiency is at its optimal level and will provide downforce when needed. This is advantageous because the Nürburgring has many long straights where less downforce is needed.

All these specifications show that if they remain in the production version, this EV will send shock waves through the high-performance EV market. Porsche has announced that it plans for the Mission X to be the fastest road-legal vehicle around the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife. Porsche’s long history of track records, its perfect power-to-weight ratio, and its aerodynamic abilities all point to the fact that the Mission X will eventually beat the Mercedes AMG One’s 6:35.18 lap time set in 2022.

The Mission X’s Exterior: One For The Ages

As we have seen in the past, Porsche’s hypercars design has aged like fine wine. The legendary 959’ exterior is still considered timeless by the masses. This hypercar’s entire body is made out of CFRP, or carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic, and CFRP helps the Mission X achieve the perfect 1:1 power-to-weight ratio as this material is ultra-light, yet giving the chassis the rigidity it needs. Let’s talk about its stunning front. It features headlights that mimic the blinking eye, a modern-day interpretation of pop-up headlights. A slanting bonnet and a huge front splinter are added for added aero, and it has the redesigned Porsche badge in the center.

On the sides, this is where things get interesting, as we see the eye-catching Le Mans-style doors that open upwards. 20-inch wheels in the front and 21-inch wheels at the back will be tirelessly (pun intended) working to give this EV the optimal grip. At the rear, we see the adaptive wing, which will be a crucial element in explaining why this hypercar produces more downforce than the 911 GT3 RS. Its taillights wrap up beautifully around the rear, and in the middle of the taillights, you see a «Porsche» wordmark illuminated, which is quite a unique way to place your company’s emblem.

Lastly, some keen Porsche loyalists spotted an animal mascot (sprinting cheetah) just in front of the rear wheels. Porsche will be looking to replicate the attributes of the cheetah, which are speed and lightweight. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen an animal mascot on a Porsche. In the past, we have seen the Vision 357 concept with a dinosaur and the Mission R concept with a wild boar. All these animal mascots represent the true attributes of these exotic vehicles.

Le Mans Racecar-Inspired Interior

Porsche Mission X Interior

Porsche has excelled at giving you the experience of an extreme racing vehicle with the sophistication of a Porsche Panamera. The «yoke» steering wheel grabs your attention immediately as you step in, and it makes a statement that this is not a normal sports car but rather a high-performance hypercar. The steering wheel has different buttons, such as various drive modes. This hypercar’s interior will have multiple cameras onboard which will start recording as soon as you press the record (REC) button. How can we forget to talk about the analog stopwatch that the cabin of Mission X will feature?

The Porsche Design clock module is attached to the dashboard, which will always let the passenger know key information. Six-point seatbelts and bucket seats will certainly make you feel like you are racing for Porsche in an endurance race. There are two displays, the curved one for the driver, which will show key data, and another one on the right for the infotainment, which is also tilted to the driver’s side, which shows this EV is truly driver-focused. The interior comes with high-quality leather and premium materials overall.

Just like the other hypercars that came out of Porsche’s factory, we expect that only a few Mission Xs will be produced. However, Porsche has not yet confirmed that the Mission X will go into production anytime in the future, but it has teased us with «if the Mission X goes into series production, then it should» on its website. The Mission X will be competing against some of the best electric hypercars to date, which include the likes of the Rimac Nevera, Lotus Evija, and the Tesla Roadster. The Mission X is expected to have a hefty price tag, and Porsche will need to work hard to make this electric hypercar justify it. Will the Mission X do justice to the legacy of previous Porsche hypercars? We shall wait and see if the Mission X sees the light of production or if it remains a concept.
