Mission X: The next Porsche hypercar

You would be forgiven for thinking that the current 992 GT3 RS (or upcoming GT2 RS) are as good as it gets from the German automaker. With cars that are so dominant at the Nürburgring, but are still able to handle everyday tasks so sensibly, how can you possibly get any better?

Those familiar with Porsche’s hierarchies and traditions will be aware of the vacant seat currently being vacated by the 918 Spyder and that Carrera GT before that – a Porsche that can hold its own a real hypercar. With the aforementioned world champions having the legitimacy of that title themselves, this may seem like an extremely difficult task. It is certainly not insurmountable, and we will soon witness its inauguration as it assumes its rightful throne.

Well, that’s it should happen. While the German automaker has not yet officially given the green light to this so-called concept Mission X– Recent developments suggest that significant resources are currently being put into production to make this a reality. In fact, Porsche recently surprised car lovers with the unveiling the Mission X concept car for the first time in the flesh, during the 2024 Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix on March 24, 2024.

Point of no return? Looks like this to me. Of course the mission is but the time is near and things are quickly moving from concept to reality, so it’s very possible we could see the peak within the next year or so.

Mission X

It has been confirmed that Porsche’s hypercar successor – should it be built – will be a fully electric vehicle. This makes the timing of the Porsche Taycan Turbo GT The release seems all too convenient, with the latter proving to skeptics that there is such a thing as motorsport-level all-electric performance. It also means that the mission


Porsche has claimed that the Mission improved 900 volt version. The battery will be too mounted behind the seatsgiving the car a more traditional mid-engined feel “E-Core” layout This has a direct and positive effect on the agility and driving characteristics of the vehicle. There is no information about the performance data yet, but we can be sure that the hypercar will clearly outshine the top Taycan with 1,093 hp and 988 tons of displacement.

“With this car, Porsche is showing the concept of a fully electric hypercar”conditions Michael Behr, Porsche Mission X project manager.

The math is enough to support this assumption. Finally, Porsche has said that their goal is to achieve a Power-to-weight ratio of one horsepower per kilogram With the Mission Ultimately, Porsche has goals to develop the fastest production car that can lap the ringand to achieve this they count on it generate more downforce than the current GT3 RS as well as. On the more pragmatic side, the automaker also claims Charging speeds up to 2x faster than the Taycanand probably better range too.


The concept certainly presented itself as a more conventional hypercar in terms of design, with a low and sleek silhouette. “Butterfly” Doors and a wealth of aerodynamic elements reflect a car that makes no compromises when it comes to maximizing performance. Even the wheels are specially designed and feature transparent aeroblades and back-milled spokes that improve brake cooling and drag. Weight reduction is also a core philosophy, as carbon fiber is used for almost every possible component, including the monocoque frame.

We did a lot of simulations and testing to make sure the car produced a lot of aerodynamic downforce.”, Michael Behr explained.

In the interior we can expect a minimalist approach that combines comfort and aesthetics with driver orientation and functionality. It’s usually difficult to extrapolate too much from concept cars, especially when it comes to interiors. However, the space cockpit ended with one Formula-inspired steering wheel This certainly fits with the overall ethos and what we can expect when and if the car goes into production.

The Porsche Mission X is The modern take on the complete hypercar, and the German automaker has provided a very good example of why the world needs it. The next step is obvious and we will definitely follow further developments and share them with you. Stay tuned!
