In line with Porsche’s iconic predecessors like the 959, Carrera GT, and 918 Spyder, the Mission X is a two-seater electric vehicle. “The Mission X provides crucial momentum for the evolutionary development of future vehicle concepts,” stated Oliver Blume, chairman of Porsche’s executive board.

Although specific technical details have yet to be disclosed, Porsche aims to achieve an impressive power-to-weight ratio of approximately one horsepower per kilogram if the car enters production. Additionally, they seek to enhance charging performance significantly with a 900-volt system, capable of charging twice as fast as their current electric model, the Porsche Taycan.

The battery would be strategically positioned in the center of the car behind the seats, optimizing weight distribution and improving maneuverability during cornering and turning.

The Mission X features unique “Le Mans-style” doors that open both forward and upward, inspired by the Porsche 917 race car. The vertically aligned LED headlights draw inspiration from racing cars such as the Porsche 906 and 908, incorporating daytime running lights and turn indicators. When illuminated, the lights resemble a blinking eye, according to Porsche.

To emphasize the driver’s role, the driver and passenger seats are adorned in different colors. The interior design heavily reflects racing influences, notably with the open-top racing-style steering wheel.
