Porsche is a company that feels at home on race tracks all over the world. We build race cars and compete in motor sports out of passion. Out of tradition. And as a matter of principle. The principle that lessons learned in motor sports can transfer directly to series production, resulting in Sports Cars that reveal their origins to every driver.
Sports Car or race car? To us, there's no difference. Because the very first Porsche was a race winner. And because what we learn from the race track influences the development of our standard-production vehicles. The motor sports soul that is part of every Porsche.
We have always been involved in motor sports. Not because we had to. But because we couldn't have done anything else. Not to achieve fame. But to continuously expand our experience at the limit. Not for self-affirmation. But to continuously challenge ourselves. And not for prestige. But as a matter of principle.
To get a step closer to the ideal race car – our drivers and engineers continuously strive to make Ferry Porsche's dream a reality. With new technologies. New goals. And new visions that prove themselves on the race track. For the journey to the Sports Car of the future.
Giving everything. Mobilising untapped reserves. Winning and already looking ahead to the next challenge from the winner's podium. Starting from scratch again. For us, this is the key to creating something great. To moving forward. To conquering new territory. This is the principle that has guided Porsche for more than 65 years. Putting every idea, every technology, every detail to the test. Not relying on the supposedly proven. But on the inner determination of our employees never to stand still. Using the past, our tradition, as a source of inspiration for creating innovation. And constantly breathing new life into 'Fascination Sports Car'. With ever more efficient drivetrains and lighter construction. Or in other words, with intelligent overall concepts.
Together we are now embarking on a new mission. With a return to top-class long-distance racing – the FIA World Endurance Championship and the TUDOR United Sports Car Championship. And perhaps the toughest long-distance race in the world – the 24 Hours of Le Mans. With our LMP1 prototype, the 919 Hybrid, our most powerful GT racecar, the 911 RSR, and the largest works driver team that Porsche has ever had.
