Porsche is electrifying different models across the line-up and so far, we’ve got the Taycan, a sedan, and the Macan SUV.

And now it looks like Porsche’s next next electric vehicle might be the Mission X supercar.

The Mission X was unveiled in 2023 as a prototype for a proposed supercar.

Supercar Blondie’s Alex Hirschi had the chance to get behind the wheel of the car a few months ago, and the first thing we’ve learned is it looks even better in the metal.

The German automaker has always been quite careful with namesakes and nomenclatures, and this means that, in theory, this’d be Porsche’s fourth supercar after the 959, the Carrera GT and the 918 Spyder.

This is because, as wild as it may sound, Porsche markets the 911 as a sportscar, not a supercar.

In fact, the Mission X would be Porsche’s first hypercar.

The Mission X would enrich Porsche’s EV range after the Taycan, which is selling like hot cakes, and the new EV Macan, which will gradually replace the gas-powered Macan.

Nothing is set in stone yet but, if confirmed, the Mission X would likely utilize a Rimac-sourced powertrain and battery pack.

Porsche and Rimac are connected and technically part of the same family, as both exist in the proximity of VW Group’s large umbrella.

But their ‘family’ connection isn’t the only reason why Porsche would probably use Rimac battery packs for its supercar.

Rimac is, in a way, a battery pack and electric powertrain producer – and it just so happens the company sells its own hypercars, too.

In addition to the Porsche Taycan and Macan, several manufacturers use Rimac components, including Aston Martin, for the Valkyrie, and Koenigsegg, for the Regera.

Getting back to the Mission X, we have reason to be optimistic.

This is because last time Porsche unveiled a concept car called ‘Mission-something’, it was the Mission E, which predated the arrival of the Taycan.
