Following three BMW Group electric vehicles, the next Formula E season, which is now in its ninth year, will feature a Porsche Safety Car. So naturally, it must be an electric car, and nothing is more fit for this duty than the new Taycan Turbo S.
The Porsche Taycan Turbo S safety car will make its track premiere during the Formula E season opener in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, on January 28/29, 2022.
Designed to serve as more than a Formula E's safety car, the spectacular paint applied to this Porsche Taycan Turbo S depicts the colors of all 11 Formula E teams, as well as the FIA and Formula E logos. Furthermore, it symbolizes the devotion of all those participating in Formula E and the shared goal of racing with all-electric engines in the future.
Simultaneously, it visualizes ideals such as diversity and community.
Due to its maneuverability and safety, as well as its 761 hp, the high-performance Porsche Taycan Turbo S is the ideal choice for the critical role of a safety car in the world's only World Sports Championship featuring all-electric cars, which takes place in the heart of iconic cities such as London, Mexico City, New York City, Berlin, Monaco, and Talla.
The Porshe Taycan's flagship model speeds from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and tops out at 260 km/h with Launch Control driving mode.
The Porsche Taycan Turbo S safety car satisfies all applicable service criteria in a highly competitive series.
