Porsche revealed the stunning Mission X concept study last month. The automaker doesn’t have plans to build it yet, but that won’t stop it from taking the car on tour. It will visit the US for the first time this fall when it debuts at this year’s Rennsport Reunion 7.
That Rensport reunion kicking off on Thursday, September 28, and running until Sunday, October 1, at Raceway Laguna Seca in California, every day is packed with motoring activity. The event was a gathering of Porsche drivers and race cars, making it the perfect setting to introduce Mission X to America. Porsche Motorsport North America CEO Alwin Springer and three-time IMSA GT2 champion Patrick Long will serve as grand marshal.
Mission X is a glimpse into Porsche’s potential future while following the skid trail left by the 959, Carrera GT and 918 Spyder. It certainly looks, but the automaker hasn’t divulged much about the all-electric powertrain. This concept offers at least one horsepower per 2.2 pounds of weight.
When Porsche started designing the Mission X, it did so to create the fastest road-legal vehicle on the Nurburgring Nordschleife. should model never entered production. If Porsche builds it, it should also generate more downforce than the current 911 GT3 – over 900 pounds at 124 miles per hour and 1,895 lbs at 177 mph.
The EV will feature a 900-volt architecture that Porsche says will allow the Mission X to charge roughly twice as fast as the Taycan Turbo S. It has staggered 20- and 21-inch ultra-light magnesium wheels, a side-view camera instead of mirrors. , and the same wheelbase as the 918 Spyder while six inches shorter at 177 inches long and 2 inches wider at the 78.7.
It’s unclear how likely Porsche is to produce the new electric hypercar. There’s bound to be a place in such a model lineup as the brand rolls out more EVs, and according to Porsche CEO Oliver Blume, it’s being considered. he told Motor1.com last month that the company would consider building it “over the course of the month”, but has yet to officially announce the concept’s potential future.
Until Porsche officially gives it the green light, the Mission X is just a concept, and you can see it in action in America this fall.
