Business News/ Auto News / Porsche reveals its Mission X, a futuristic electric hypercar concept. All you need to know

Porsche has introduced the Mission X Concept, a groundbreaking prototype designed to commemorate 75 years of Porsche sports cars. This innovative concept provides a sneak peek into the potential appearance of future sports cars. Boasting an all-electric power system, the Mission X achieves impressive performance levels. Currently, Porsche has not disclosed any information regarding the production prospects of the Mission X.

Drawing inspiration from classic Porsche hypercars like the 959, Carrera GT, and 918 Spyder, the Mission X exhibits a design that pays homage to its predecessors. The front of the vehicle features a sleek, low profile accompanied by vertically stacked LED headlights and LED Daytime Running Lamps.

A prominent horizontal opening serves the purpose of directing airflow and preventing component overheating. Porsche has maintained its signature low-slung body design, resulting in a compact height of only 47.2 inches. To enhance its distinctiveness, the Mission X incorporates Le Mans-style doors that open in a forward and upward motion, reminiscent of the iconic Porsche 917.

The Mission X showcases a curved windshield that gracefully wraps around the cabin, while the wheel arches stand out prominently. In terms of wheel configuration, the front sports 20-inch wheels, while the rear boasts 21-inch wheels. Porsche emphasizes that this choice was made with aerodynamics in mind. Speaking of aerodynamic features, nearly transparent aero blades resembling turbines are integrated into the rear axle. Their purpose is to enhance brake cooling efficiency.

Notably, the Porsche Mission X Concept shares similar dimensions to the Carrera GT and 918 Spyder, measuring approximately 4.5 meters in length, 2 meters in width, and possessing a wheelbase of 2.73 meters. The vehicle's paint color, known as Rocket Metallic, adds an elegant touch to its overall appearance.

Meanwhile, the logo of Porsche has undergone several subtle alterations over time, each holding immense importance. The most recent update, although seemingly minute, carries significant meaning.

While still retaining its unmistakable Porsche identity, the revised logo reveals its modifications upon closer examination. The previously textured bronze knurling has been completely refined, enhancing the visibility of the distinctive 'Porsche' and 'Stuttgart' lettering.

Additionally, a contemporary touch has been added with the incorporation of a honeycomb pattern, lending the logo a modern allure. The rollout of this updated design will commence on the vehicle side by the end of 2023.
