Porsche Mission X Concept Is Drop Dead Gorgeous | Automotiv

Picture: Porsche

It’s protected to say when the Porsche Mission X dropped yesterday we at Jalopnik all had the identical response: Our hearts jumped out of our ribcages like a cartoon feline who simply noticed a reasonably woman cat. There could have been a “aahwooogah” sound as nicely.

And the way may you not fall in love? From the sick wheels to the light-up badge to headlights that would make Jason Torchinsky blush, the Mission X is an aggressive and uniquely styled automobile that feels futuristic with out being schlocky. The most effective half? The idea electrical hypercar has an excellent shot at truly seeing the sunshine of day.

Right here’s among the greatest particulars we grabbed earlier from the restricted press launch:

First, we see that Porsche needs to set a brand new Nurburgring lap document (unofficially, in fact) and that it ought to have a power-to-weight ratio of round 2.2 lbs per hp.

It must also have “considerably extra downforce than the present 911 GT3 RS,” which implies it’ll be higher than 1,895 kilos at 177 mph, and that’s frankly staggering. It should even be comparatively small by hypercar requirements at 177 inches lengthy, 78.7 inches extensive, 47.2 inches tall and a wheelbase of 107.4 inches. Lastly, it is going to cost round twice as shortly because the Taycan Turbo S.

Oh, yeah, and it’ll be road-legal.

I would like you to shut your eyes and picture this beautiful machine simply happening the highway, like some widespread Kia Sorento or Honda Ridgeline. Mortal vehicles would pull over to the shoulder within the presence of this anointed automobile. It’s a greater world. A extra stunning world. You don’t wish to go away that world and hey, that’s comprehensible.

However that world doesn’t exist, no less than for now. Time to open your eyes (welcome again) and use these peepers to peruse all of the images Porsche has to date launched of the Mission X (we’ll add extra as they arrive out.) You’ll be glad you probably did.
