  • Porsche revealed the Mission R Concept electric race car at IAA, which could replace the current 911 GT3 Cup car.

  • The Mission R produces a constant power output of 671 hp in race mode, and can go 0-60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds.

  • The concept may also preview the next 718.

The automotive world is going electric, and that looks like it will include race cars.

The IAA Mobility auto show was once known simply as the Frankfurt Auto Show and featured grand reveals on expensive show stands where the industry’s great leaders spoke at length about the present and future of the automobile. But that was in the past, as soon may be internal combustion itself. As the world and the car industry go green, what was once known as Frankfurt Auto Show has been drastically scaled down.

Audi’s Bonkers New Skysphere EV Concept Is a Self-Driving Shapeshifter

Audi‘s first in a trio of electric autonomous concept cars, signifying the marque’s future direction, will greet the public as part of Monterey Car Week. The Skysphere is a sporty roadster that, with the push of a button, physically stretches into a grand touring car that drives itself while passengers relax—at least in theory.

“The experience we wanted to recreate with Skysphere is grand touring” says designer Gael Buzyn, head of Audi’s new design studio in Malibu, Calif. “In the 1930s, there was a leap in technology that made cars more comfortable and easier to use.

We did this by creating two driving modes with two distinct personalities.”

Brabham Automotive, one of the most dominant performers in F1 history, is expanding its motorsport reach. Based on the same platform as the road-going Brabham GT62R, the all-new GT63 GT2 Concept is a pure race car designed specifically for the 2022 season of the Fanatec GT2 European Series.

Like all current Brabham products, the GT63 GT2 Concept is centered around the company’s FIA-compliant spaceframe chassis. The chromoly steel construction ensures the platform is plenty rigid for motorsports use, while a built in safety cell protects drivers should the wheel-to-wheel action get a bit too aggressive. The race car is slated to be powered by a 5.2-liter naturally-aspirated V-8 engine, complete with dry sump oiling and a race-ready exhaust system. The aero package has been reworked from the road car, with a new rear diffuser, front splitter and rear wing. As is required by the
