The plan of the Porsche sports car maker revealed at the annual “Night of Champions,” also includes diverse customer racing activities.
During the Weissach development center gala, Nicolas Leutwiler was honored with the Porsche Cup for being the top amateur driver in 2023, while Alessandro Ghiretti joined the festivities as the new Porsche Junior.
Porsche Motorsport has set high goals for the 2024 season: securing titles and winning prestigious races worldwide. At the “Night of Champions” event in Weissach, the sports car manufacturer outlined its ambitious program for the upcoming year. Key components include the Porsche 963 in the FIA World Endurance Championship WEC and the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, the Porsche 99X Electric in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, and participation in the ESL R1 sim racing competition with the Porsche factory team Coanda Esports Racing Team.
Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, explains:
“Motorsport is at the core of the Porsche brand. For us, motorsport and innovation are inextricably linked. New developments from motorsport improve our road cars. In motorsport, we rely on our pioneering spirit, our courage and our sportiness. The love for Porsche begins on the racetrack. There’s often not a lot between victory and defeat. We experienced this firsthand this year. But we wouldn’t be Porsche if we didn’t learn from setbacks. We’re fierce fighters with great ambition and perseverance. That has always set us apart.”
