Porsche will offer a breathtaking glimpse into the future of automobiles, one of which is the Mission R concept car that blends cutting-edge technology with environmentally friendly materials such as natural fibre-reinforced polymers, as well as a passion for racing.

The car's body is primarily composed of natural fibre reinforced plastic (NFRP), which uses flax fibres obtained from farming as its fundamental ingredient. The front spoiler lip, diffuser, and side skirts are all made of this environmentally friendly material. NFRP is utilised extensively throughout the Mission R's interior, including the inside door panels, rear bulkhead, and seat.

In qualifying mode, the all-wheel-drive vehicle accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in less than 2.5 seconds, generating slightly under 1,100 PS. Over 300 km/h is the top speed. The electric racer achieves the same lap time performance as the current Porsche 911 GT3 Cup on the race track. In racing mode, the Porsche Mission R concept study delivers a continuous power output of 680 PS thanks to freshly developed electric motors and battery cells, all of which are fitted with revolutionary direct oil cooling.

The front axle is powered by an electric motor with up to 435 PS, while the rear axle receives up to 653 PS. A decent 15-minute break from racing is all that is required to charge the battery from 5 to 80 percent SoC (state of charge) thanks to sophisticated 900-volt technology and Porsche Turbo Charging.

In every way, the interior design is centred on the driver. During the race, an ergonomically positioned display between the steering wheel controls displays essential statistics. The pictures from the side mirror cameras and the central rear-view mirror camera are shown on the monitor above the steering wheel. A touch display to the right of the seat may be used to access the driver's biometric data. A variety of inside cameras may be utilised to create interesting scenes for a live stream presentation.

Porsche has offered unmistakable glimpses of its first all-electric sports car model series in the previous several years with the Mission E (2015) and Mission E Cross Turismo (2018) concept studies. In terms of look and technology, the Porsche Taycan sports saloon (2019) and Taycan Cross Turismo cross-utility vehicle (2021) are quite similar to the two concept studies, and have already been successfully released on global markets - mission completed. Porsche is now unveiling its concept of what customer motorsports will look like in the future with the Mission R. Today was the global debut of the display car at the IAA MOBILITY in Munich.

Porsche is trying to bring real and virtual racing closer together than ever before with the Mission R initiative. In the same way, the monocoque driver's module doubles as an esports simulator. The safety structure, which is composed of carbon fibre composite material, combines great driver protection with minimal weight and a unique appearance.
