Porsche has chosen its 75th anniversary to showcase its latest hypercar and successor to its 918 Spyder with the launch of an all-electric model. Concept of Mission X.
The Mission X is an all-electric supercar that Porsche says will be the fastest road-legal car around the Nürburgring, replacing the Mercedes-AMG One. That is, if it goes into production, which we doubt it will.
While details around its powertrain are vague, the German marque claims it will have a power-to-weight ratio of one PS (0.735kW) per kg with significantly more downforce than the recently released 992 911 GT3 RS .
The 900-volt system architecture will also charge at least twice as fast as the Taycan Turbo S. According to Porsche, the electric motor is the next generation of permanently excited synchronous motors (PSM) and uses significantly improved cooling technology to feed oil into the copper windings. for significantly improved heat dissipation compared to current systems.
The Mission X concept rides on 20-inch wheels at the front and 21-inch wheels at the rear. Amazingly, the Michelin Cup 2 R tires at the rear (315/20 R 21) are six centimeters wider than at the front (255/35 R 20). The rear wheel clearly features translucent aero blades. You might also see the modernized Porsche top, which made its debut at Mission X.
Joining Mission E (future electric mobility) and Mission R (future customer sports) Porsche says Mission X is a ‘vision for the next big step’ to be experimental, exciting and extreme.
The launch of the Mission X brought a host of new ideas for Porsche in terms of not only performance, but also design.
The use of a lightweight glass dome (with an exoskeleton made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic) can be seen extending over the passengers and driver.
The interior is very focused on the driver, with different colored seats for added effect. The six-point harness is bolted directly into the vehicle’s monocoque chassis and the racing-style steering wheel has many of the same features as the GT3 RS, with plenty of dials and switchable systems.
Furthermore, Le Mans-style racing doors are fitted to the A-pillars and roof, opening forward and upwards, giving it a futuristic look while paying homage to the Porsche 917 racing car.
