At the Munich 2021 Motor Show, Porsche unveils the Mission R concept, a style study foreshadowing future 100% electric competition models.
Motor racing is dear to Porsche, which takes advantage of the Munich Motor Show to present to the public the Porsche Mission R : a style study with two 100% electric motors, which gives an indication of the orientation of the future racing cars from the Stuttgart firm. 4.33 meters long, 1.99 meters wide and 1.19 meters high, the model shows a few nods to the brand’s production models, such as the front lights in the spirit of those of the Taycan.
Designed with the objective of sustainability and reduction of CO emissions2, the model has a body mainly made up of natural fiber reinforced plastic, like linen, which can be found on the front spoiler, diffuser and side skirts, but also inside on the door panels, the rear bulkhead and the seat.
The cockpit has a safety structure in composite material, completed by the roof structure in carbon fiber, which acts as a safety cage. The steering wheel is equipped with a screen for displaying driving information, while the screen placed just above it is used for rear view, thanks to the help of cameras.
Technically, the front axle is driven by a 435 horsepower electric motor, while the rear has a 653 horsepower engine, i.e. a total power of 1,088 horsepower in all-wheel drive. Note that in Race mode, the power will be set to 680 horsepower. Porsche specifies that its performance is comparable to a 911 GT3 Cup: the whole makes it possible to reach the 100 km / h in less than 2.5 seconds, for a top speed of more than 300 km / h.
The car is powered by a 80 kWh battery capacity, supported by an innovative energy recovery system to limit power loss. Thanks to a 900 V architecture, barely 15 minutes are needed to recover 80% of autonomy, with a charging power of 340 kW.
The Porsche Mission R concept car will be presented to the public at the IAA Mobility salon in Munich, which will open its doors from September 7 to 12, 2021.
