Porsche Unleashes Its Sustainability-Focused Mission R E-GT Racer Concept

The automotive landscape is undeniably making a push to move in a markedly more sustainable direction, however, it’s been difficult to accomplish this monumental shift without largely sacrificing on performance. Aiming to offer the best of both worlds, Porsche has just unveiled its all-new Mission R, an all-electric GT racing car concept that boasts a wildly-potent zero-emissions powertrain wrapped in a revolutionary new chassis and bodywork design crafted from renewable materials.

In lieu of a traditional chassis and roll-cage, the Mission R sports an innovative “exoskeleton” structure that’s made from a carbon fiber composite and paired with half a dozen transparent polycarbonate segments that comprise the racer’s domed roof. The concept’s bodywork is also partially made from a natural fiber-reinforced plastic that’s derived from agriculturally-produced flax fibers and requires 85% less C02 than traditional materials. Riding on ultra-trick 18″ magnesium Cup center-locking wheels with CNC-machined spokes and carbon aero disc covers, the Mission R also features a slew of cutting-edge equipment including Porsche Active Aerodynamics, a Drag Reduction System, independent suspension all round, and a ride-by-wire braking and steering setup. While the actual vehicle may never find its way to your local streets, the performance of the Porsche Mission R will become reality in an upcoming 2022 virtual racing game championship.
