“Rennsport is the perfect location to mark the first US visit by one of the most exciting cars of the year – allowing our customers and fans to see it up close for the first time,” said Joe Lawrence, Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of Porsche Cars North America. “At the largest Porsche gathering worldwide, we are not just celebrating our rich Motorsport history and those who shaped it, but also look forward to an exciting future.”
Inspired by legendary Porsche hypercars such as the 959, the Carrera GT and the 918 Spyder, the Mission X is a collection of ideas, and shows a vision of what a Porsche hypercar of the future could look like. As a concept, it would be the fastest road-legal vehicle around the Nuerburgring-Nordschleife, have a power-to-weight ratio of roughly one hp per 2.2. lbs., achieve downforce values that are well in excess of those delivered by the current 911 GT3 RS and offer significantly improved charging performance with its 900-volt system architecture. “I can’t wait to see the reactions to this breathtaking all-electric concept” added Lawrence.
