Porsche commits to Formula E, Porsche has confirmed its interest and commitment to Formula E in the medium term by implicitly ruling out its departure at the end of next year as will Audi.
"We are very pleased to be able to clearly announce our continuity in the ABB Formula E World Championship. We are completely convinced that it is an exceptional scenario and a unique concept," said Fritz Enzinger, Vice President of Competition, in the presentation of Porsche sports programs. "We use this category of all-electric single-seaters for the systematic development and expansion of our experiences in the field of battery-electric propulsion. We want to advance the Championship together with the FIA, the promoters and the teams in the years to come." Enzinger added.
A statement that implicitly confirms a commitment beyond 2021 and that Porsche will be in the category when it debuts the new Gen3 car, more powerful - 8,350 kilowatts - and lighter - about 120 kilos less - than the current one. Enziger said that the Weissach engineers have vastly improved the transmission and have come up with new ways to define the operational strategy, so the TAG Heuer Porsche team harbors the highest ambitions for this 2021 season, which begins in mid-January in Santiago de Chile.
The drivers who will drive the two Porsche 99X Electrics next year will be the Germans André Lotterer and Pascal Wehrlein, while the Swiss Simona de Silvestro and Neel Jani will be the reserves. Porsche's sports plans also include the participation of two cars in the Endurance World Cup and also in the Porsche Cup, as well as customer service in the various GT categories, without specifying whether they will have a presence in the new DTM that will be reserved. to the GT3.
