The Messerschmitt P.1092 was a series of Messerschmitt experimental aircraft for the Luftwaffe during the Second World War. Several designs for single- and twin-engined aircraft were drafted under the same designation.

The different aircraft were all-metal monoplanes with retractable tricycle landing gear, swept wings, and a jet engine. A number of variants were drawn. The P.1092 remained a project, with no aircraft built.
