New Porsche Taycan Turbo GT – Fia Formula E Safety Car

At the highly anticipated 2024 SUN Minimeal Berlin E-Prix, Porsche will unveil its latest marvel: the Taycan Turbo GT, designated as the official Safety Car for the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. Representing the pinnacle of Porsche’s engineering prowess, the Taycan Turbo GT made waves earlier this year with its unprecedented performance benchmarks at Nürburgring and Laguna Seca. Now, it steps into the spotlight as the guardian of safety on the electrifying Formula E circuit.

Launching with two distinct variants in striking color options, the Taycan Turbo GT is poised to command attention and ensure the smooth running of the championship races. Equipped with the optional Weissach package, this automotive marvel catapults from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 2.2 seconds, reaching an astounding top speed of 305 km/h. The inclusion of Porsche’s cutting-edge ATTACK MODE, inspired by Formula E technology, grants the Safety Car a temporary power boost of up to 120 kW, enhancing its agility and responsiveness on the track.

Underlining Porsche’s unwavering commitment to innovation and sustainability, the Taycan Turbo GT was meticulously developed at Porsche’s R&D facility in Weissach, operating on a net carbon-neutral basis. Maintenance and oversight of these high-performance machines will be entrusted to Porsche specialists from Manthey at the renowned Nürburgring, ensuring their peak performance and reliability throughout the championship season.

Behind the wheel of the FIA Formula E Safety Car, the skilled FIA driver Bruno Correia will continue to steer with precision and expertise, ensuring the safety of drivers and spectators alike. This partnership between Porsche and Formula E not only underscores Porsche’s dedication to leading the charge in electrification and sustainability but also serves as a testament to the invaluable learnings garnered from motorsport, shaping the future of Porsche’s electric series-production sports cars.
