Mission R: The future of electric Porsche GT cars

Porsche is inspired by live broadcasts from the world of esports and the next generation racing concept.

For the future of motorsports for customers, the company sees the all-electric Porsche Mission R, which was first introduced at IAA Mobility 2021 in Munich.

Porsche has a long tradition of customer racing. More than 4,400 cars have been produced in the past three decades.

The car shows the future of Porsche GT racing in the form of a GT race car and also indicates future Porsche GT cars that will be used as the engine.

The model has additional components made of natural fibre-reinforced plastic, which generates 85% less carbon dioxide than carbon fibres.

According to its own data, the Porsche Mission R aims to create new forms of interaction between fans and drivers. The roof of this car is made mostly of glass so that the driver can be seen from above during the entire race.

The camera in the driver's helmet, the moving camera on the car's A-pillar and the rear camera ensure close contact between the fans.

The display on the steering wheel provides important data, while the display above the steering column shows side views and reverse cameras.

The entire booth also has cameras that can adjust the angle remotely, and the company is considering letting fans choose the camera angle during a live match.

The company claims that this game-inspired steering wheel has a built-in biosensor that can track a driver's vital signs, and the car also has a dedicated real-time button.

Porsche said that the Porsche Mission R can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.5 seconds, with a top speed of more than 300 km / h. Thanks to the electric motor.

Mission R: The future of electric Porsche GT cars

There are two electric motors at the front and rear of the Porsche Mission R. You can achieve 1,088 hp in qualification mode and 680 hp in race mode. The front axle is equipped with a 429 hp engine and the rear axle has a power of 644 hp.

The 80 kW battery in the Porsche Mission R is also impressive. The 900V battery can be charged from 5% to 80% in 15 minutes. Thanks to Porsche compressor technology.

The electric racing car follows a new concept of rollover protection with a cage-like structure made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic to protect the driver in the event of an accident.

The cover is made of plastic reinforced with natural fibres. It is made from agriculturally produced flax fibers. It's as light as carbon fibre, but still offers stiffness when it's only 10% of its weight.

The car is equipped with advanced Porsche Active aerodynamics. Depending on what the driver does on the track, he can optimally adapt his characteristics. There is a drag reduction system consisting of three vents on either side of the air intake. With two adjustable wings.

The model has a cable brake system with a control unit to control the interaction between hydraulic and electric brakes.

As a subsidiary of the largest Volkswagen Group, Porsche is committed to providing the company with electrification in all areas.

The Porsche Mission R is a professional look that evolved in the effort that began with the Taycan in 2019. It may never officially move onto the track. But this car is an endorsement of the strange way in which games and racing are intertwined.
