Celebrating its dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2022 – the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 ePerformance. The all-electric concept car, equipped with @Michelin tyres, took part in the iconic Hillclimb event, mastering the twists and turns of the 1.9km-long course. Awesome electric power in action.
All-electric customer motorsport offers a new way to excite fans worldwide, starting with the race car: With variable power and all-wheel drive, the GT4 e-Performance is designed for a wide variety of racing formats – built to inspire.
Sprint races on a circuit, hill climbs on mountain roads, drift races in the snow: the Porsche GT4 e-Performance prototype is built to be used in different events. After all, a future electric Porsche customer racing car should be used as much as possible. The prototype will never be for sale, but it is already gathering valuable data and insights.
What’s more, digital technology allows completely new race formats, including interaction with the vehicle. For example, power output can be flexibly adjusted during the race. The race car will continue to enable close links between physical and virtual racing.
With the Mission R, we’ve shown how Porsche envisages sustainable customer
motor racing in the future. The 718 Cayman GT4 e-Performance is now demonstrating that this vision works impressively on the racetrack.
GT RACING VEHICLE PROJECT MANAGER
Porsche will be holding intensive discussions with customers, partners, and decision-makers from the racing scene about possible applications of this new drive concept and innovative racing formats. That’s why the prototype will go on the Porsche GT4 e-Performance Tour and appear at selected events worldwide, starting with the Festival of Speed in Goodwood in 2022. The topic of sustainable racing will certainly be on the agenda.
