After more than 30 years, Porsche returns to single-seater racing, making its debut in the 2019/20 season of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship. Going up against fellow German car giants Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, the series will see them go head to head for the first time in history.
With one of the longest-standing track records in motorsport dating back to the 1950s, Porsche's entry into Formula E is the latest step in the German manufacturer's history. After its most recent success in endurance racing, including multiple victories in both LMP1 and GT categories, the marque turns to the all-electric racing series to ready the next generation of electric Porsche road cars.
Calling on a decade of experience in hybrid and electrified racing, after the marque launched its first hybrid racing car, the 911 GT3 R Hybrid in 2010, Porsche prepares to take on the most competitive line up in motorsport. Following its first hybrid race car, the road-going 918 Spyder hit the road in 2015, which in part formed the basis of the 919 Hybrid race car, in which Neel Jani and Andre Lotterer drove in the 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Now, both drivers are reunited to drive Porsche's 99X Electric to take the fight to 11 other teams in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, racing for the title on the streets of the world's most progressive cities.
