The Porsche Mission X Concept has a low-slung design.

In terms of design, the Mission X is inspired by some old Porsche supercars, such as the 959, Carrera GT and 918 Spyder. The front is very low, with vertically stacked LED headlights and LED daytime running lights, and has a large horizontal opening that helps direct airflow and keep components from overheating. Porsche has kept its low profile, so it’s only 47.2 inches tall. Manufacturers are using Le Mans-style doors that open forward and upward. This type of door was previously used on the legendary Porsche 917.

The windshield curves around the cabin and the wheel arches are very prominent. In addition to this, there are 20-inch front wheels and 21-inch rear wheels. Porsche says this is done for aerodynamic purposes. Speaking of aerodynamics, the rear axle is fitted with almost transparent air blades designed to resemble a turbine for better brake cooling.

The Porsche Mission X Concept pays homage to the Porsche 917 with its Le Mans-style doors.
