The Mission R is a technology showcase in the form of a future racing car. But much of what we see here will become the new Taycan and Boxster.

“It might just be a concept, but the Mission R is full of interesting innovations. I like the plant-based composites, while my son loves the idea of being able to take out the cockpit of a car and turn it into a simulator. ”

Tom Says

“A thousand-plus horsepower one-off sounds like just a little engineering fantasy. But there are styling cues for the new Boxster here - and apparently there might even be a Boxster-sized EV on the way. Not with 1000bhp, mind you.”

​​Got questions? We've put together the most frequently-asked topics below. If there's something we haven't answered here or in the review then let us know on our contact page.

What is the Porsche Mission R?
It's a tow seat concept racing car which is pure electric. Rumour is that it points the way to the new Boxster and Cayman.

What powertrain does the Porsche Mission R use?
There's a 82kWh battery and two motors, giving four wheel drive and a total of 1,100bho in 'Qualifying' mode.

Will Porsche build the Mission R, or is it just a concept?
It's just a concept for now, but a race series is a possibility. What's more exciting is the though of a car which looks like this and uses some of the tech becoming the next Cayman.

Does the Mission R replace the Porsche 911?
No - the 911 will continue to prevent fans rioting in the streets. Porsche is battling to keep an internal combustion engine in it too, using synthetic fuels.
