    Re: Porsche Mission X Hypercar

    Might be true.  Mission X has some weird lines trying to be more like a Pagani rather than a Porsche.

    Besides, CEO Blume seems to be pushing the synthetic fuel over the BEV, so we might see another ICE based hypercar like the 918 before moving fully over to BEV.  Toyota says they succeeded in the solid state battery tech.  This will be a game changer.  No need to jump into BEV with current battery tech, which is too heavy.

    Let's not forget that Porsche couldn't sell the 918 either (until they invented the VIP program as an inducement)...

    Carrera GT didn't fly off the lots either

    And Porsche lost money on every 959 sold (but was a valuable program for technology and lessons applied to 911's for decades after).

    Same with 918 tech. All Porsche hybrids originated from the 918. Seats, steering wheels, shifters and other stuff are also on other Porsche products even to this day.

    918 program was the best investment Porsche ever made.

    Again, I just don’t see it from a design perspective. Imagine if you did not have a Porsche badge on it, would you immediately conclude this was a Porsche?? 959, obviously. CGT and 918, yes. This? And this is before getting to the EV thing, which is more or less a function of strapping on wheels to the biggest battery possible, subject to an overall weight target of what, 1,750 kgs….
