Andretti and Porsche partnership to continue through Season 12

Andretti has announced that the team will extend its partnership with Porsche Motorsport through Season 12 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.


The extended collaboration will see Andretti continue to use the Porsche 99X Electric and underscores the outfit's commitment to leveraging Porsche's renowned expertise and technology for future success in the all-electric racing series.

Since joining forces at the start of Season 9, the Porsche 99X Electric has yielded a Drivers' World Championship, three race wins, 15 podium finishes, five fastest laps, 112 laps led and a total of 365 points in Andretti colours. The Porsche-powered teams of TAG Heuer Porsche and Andretti has also yielded 209 points jointly scored in the newly-established Manufacturers’ Trophy, which the German manufacturer currently leads heading to home soil in Berlin.

“It’s an exciting time to be a part of Formula E and we feel confident in our position in the series, which is due in large part to our partnership with Porsche," says Michael Andretti, Chairman and CEO of Andretti Global. "From day one our goal has been to win races and championships, and Porsche has helped us achieve both since joining forces in Season 9. With all the success we’ve shared with the GEN3 car, I can’t wait to see what we can do together in the GEN3 Evo era.”

A longstanding partnership

The relationship between Andretti and Porsche Motorsport precedes the announcement of the GEN3 agreement ahead of the Berlin E-Prix in Season 8. The partnership dates back to 1983, when Mario and Michael Andretti debuted at Le Mans in a Porsche 956, marking the beginning of shared victories including podium finishes at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Andretti currently sits third in the Teams' Championship with 113 points, while reigning Drivers' World Champion Jake Dennis is just 13 points behind the leader in the Drivers' standings while teammate Norman Nato sits in 13th with 24 points.

“We are very pleased to announce the extension of the Andretti and Porsche agreement to work together for the next two seasons," adds Andretti Team Principal Roger Griffiths. "There was never any doubt in our mind about who we'd want to be working with. We have had a very special relationship with Porsche Motorsport, both on and off the track, and we have seen an awful lot of success together. Hopefully, we can share more success in the future.” 


“We are obviously very pleased about the continuation of our partnership," says Thomas Laudenbach, Vice President, Porsche Motorsport. "The Andretti name is one of the most renowned in global motorsports, so the contract extension is of particular importance to us. Andretti and the Porsche factory team work together in many areas in Formula E.

"We drive each other to peak performances. The standings at the halfway mark are proof for this: both teams find themselves in the top three, and so do two of the four drivers. Plus, together we are leading the Manufacturer's Trophy for Porsche.”

“We have enjoyed working with the Andretti team since we partnered up for the GEN3 era, and we are more than happy to continue to do so for GEN3 Evo," says Florian Modlinger, Director, Porsche Factory Motorsport, Formula E. "It’s also thanks to Andretti that the Porsche 99X Electric has had great results over the last one and half seasons, including Jake Dennis’ World Championship win.

"The exchange between the two teams contributes to the car’s performance, and that’s exactly what we’re all looking for. To enter GEN3 Evo in a well-working partnership makes me very optimistic for Seasons 11 and 12.”
