The Porsche Mission R is that electric racing vehicle that will set the pulses racing as it becomes the first vehicle of electrification that comes to the iRacing platform in the 2022 season 4 build.

Electrification comes to iRacing for the first time with 2022 Season 4, as iRacing and Porsche have teamed up to bring the Porsche Mission R concept car to the world’s premier motorsport simulator with next week’s build. The car will be available for purchase by all iRacing users immediately upon the release of the new build, and will be playable in public, hosted, league, time trial, and test drive modes.

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 drivers an opportunity to test in the virtual world in the same environment they’ll utilize in the real one.

iRacers can get their first taste of the Porsche Mission R during next week’s Season 3 Week 13, where it’ll be featured in the Shiny New Shakedown series. The fixed-setup Mission R Challenge series will debut as a part of 2022 Season 4.
