Mission X

Is Porsche on The Verge of Confirming a New Supercar?

Porsche created a lot of buzz when they celebrated their 75th anniversary with their splashy Mission X concept car last year. While concept cars are fantastic, most never move beyond the concept stage. But could Porsche’s Mission X be an exception? It’s a tantalizing possibility to dream about.

According to a report from Motor1, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume teased that the German automotive icon will decide whether they manufacture the Mission X later this year. (What a time to be alive!)

A Dream Car With Dreamy Specs

According to Motor1’s report, there’s much speculation regarding how much power the Mission X could generate. Some believe it’s 1,500 horsepower, while others think it’s 1,700, possibly more! Their report speculates this monstrous supercar will have at least two motors, one per axle, to support an all-wheel drive layout. Porsche has yet to reveal these specs.

The Mission X will tout a 900-volt architecture, pitting it against the Rimac Nevera, a supercar engineered to have 500-kW charging capabilities.

The German automaker announced that the Mission X would have more significant downforce figures than their 911 GT3 RS (992). The GT3 RS is no slouch, generating 409 kg and 860 kg of total downforce at 124 and 177 miles per hour, respectively. The report from Motor1 notes that the Mission X could potentially charge its battery almost twice as fast as the Taycan Turbo S. It’s worth noting that the 2025 Taycan can now charge its battery from 10 to 80 percent in around 18 minutes after Porsche upgraded it from 270 to 320 kilowatts.

Porsche has made it known that the Mission X will sport staggered wheels, with the front being 20 inches and the back being 21 inches, and that its wheelbase will be 107.5 inches. It’s also known that the Mission X will be under 47 inches tall, around 177 inches long, and 78 inches wide. The Mission X will also have a battery pack mounted behind its seats. Motor1’s report adds that when Porsche debuted the concept car last year, they said the Mission X would have a power-to-weight ratio of at least one horsepower per kilogram of the vehicle.

After the killer, record-breaking run that Porsche recently had at the Nurburgring with their latest Taycan, where that gorgeous vehicle made it around the challenging 12.94-mile circuit in a blazing 7 minutes and 7 seconds – it’s exciting to imagine what the Mission X could do on the track.
