The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship has selected the all-electric Porsche Taycan as its official Safety Car for season 8.
The new SC is set to make its formal debut at the opening round of the Formula E season later this month in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia.
As the first-ever all-electric Porsche, expectations were high, of course.
But even the most optimistic product planners within Porsche couldn’t have predicted the e-mobility revolution’s acceleration under COVID.
“Formula E is delighted the Porsche Taycan Turbo S will serve as the championship’s Safety Car from Season 8,” says Jamie Reigle, CEO of Formula E.
“The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is the pinnacle of high performance electrified vehicles and will light up Formula E city racetracks around the world.”
