Porsche Mission R Concept Previews Future Electric Sustainable Race Car
Read the rest here. More about it on Porsche's own mini site.Porsche’s mission of electrifying its model range continues with the brand’s first EVrace car. The Mission R concept is Porsche’s vision for a future zero-emissions race car built from sustainable materials and offering track performance that rivals its most powerful and best prepped combustion-powered competitors. It is making its debut during the IAA in Munich with the Stuttgart-based company even talking about a potential one-model race car series in the future, though there are no fixed plans for now.
The Mission R is powered by new generation electric motors with a combined peak output of 1,073 horsepower (800 kilowatts) in qualification mode as Porsche calls it. The all-wheel-drive system is good enough for a sprint from a standstill to 62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour) in just 2.5 seconds, and the top speed is rated at 186 mph (300 kph). In general, Porsche says the track performance of the Mission R matches what the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup is capable of.
From the auto show:
If I'm going to make an unqualified guess, this is the racing version of the car that will likely be the electric replacement for the 718 five years from now.
