Porsche has continued its tradition of developing innovative concept cars that lay the groundwork for future technologies with the fully electric Mission X hypercar concept. It joins an elite family of super sports cars that began nearly 40 years ago with the revolutionary, all-wheel drive, twin-turbocharged 959.

Porsche’s latest concept study, the Mission X hypercar, will be one of the highlights of this year’s Icons of Porsche festival, held in the Dubai Design District on 25-26 November 2023.

The all-electric Mission X will be flanked by the three supercars which paved the way and have each contributed to the development of Porsche’s road and race cars over the decades, the all-wheel-drive 959, the V10-powered Carrera GT V10 and the hybrid 918 Spyder.

Mission X is a dramatic-looking two-seater reinterpretation of a hypercar, with Le Mans-style doors that open upwards to the front and is driven by a high-performance, efficient electric powertrain.

The vision of Mission X, should it go into production, is that it should be the fastest road-legal vehicle around the Nürburgring Nordschleife, have a power-to-weight ratio of roughly one PS per kilogram and achieve downforce in excess of those delivered by the current 911 GT3 RS.
