iRacing and Porsche have confirmed that the Porsche Mission R electric racecar will be coming to the online racing platform.
The Porsche Mission R will be available as paid content on September 7 as part of the 2022 Season 4 build. The car will be playable in public, hosted, league, time trial, and test drive modes, and will be the star in the upcoming iRacing Mission R Challenge series.
One of the automotive industry’s premier brands steps into the future with the Porsche Mission R, Porsche’s first all-electric GT racing car and the first-ever electric car to come to iRacing. Designed to match the established Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car in terms of performance, the Mission R is a preview of what the future of customer motorsports will look like as the racing industry continues to evolve with the embrace of electrification efforts.
Generating more than 800 kilowatts of power from its dual electric motors, the car accelerates from 0-100 kilometers per hour (0-60 mph) in under 2.5 seconds. Its fast-charging capabilities allow the car to recharge up to 75% of its battery life in just 15 minutes between races. And in perhaps its most relevant innovation of all to the sim racing world, the Mission R’s self-contained, monocoque-type driver cell can be used outside of the car as a simulator-giving driver an opportunity to test in the virtual world in the same environment they’ll utilize in the real one.
