Throughout the 2019 season, Ammermüller showed no signs of losing focus. In his eighth Supercup year, the seasoned specialist turned up at every race with impressive ambition. He climbed the podium six times and won the races on the street circuit of Monaco, at the Hungaroring in Hungary and in Mexico City. For much of the season, however, the Lechner driver played the role of hunter. His teammate,
On his way to the title, however, the fight turned intense: Ammermüller faced tough competition from three young hotspurs: Andlauer, Larry ten Voorde and Ayhancan Güven. At the finale on the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in Mexico, the same quartet went head-to-head for the title. This is a situation that Ammermüller knows well. In the past two years, he has claimed the championship crown in Central America – beating
Never giving up and getting out of tricky situations – Ammermüller learned this early on in his racing career. Born in Passau, the Bavarian became one of the world’s most promising single-seater hopefuls. Ammermüller climbed the career ladder via the GP2 series to Formula 1 test driver with Red Bull Racing. In 2007, the sportsman experienced a major setback when he seriously injured his hand in a racing accident. This proved to be a serious blow for the highly talented sports man, whose career suddenly stood at a crossroad. But Ammermüller didn’t give up on his dream of becoming a professional racing driver. He worked tirelessly on his comeback – a phase in which he learned that patience and composure pays dividends. In 2010, the German switched to GT racing and contested the ADAC GT Masters.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
