Porsche Team Principal Florian Modlinger has brushed aside rumours of Porsche leaving the series to support Audi’s F1 entry in 2026.
Porsche entered the all-electric series in season five alongside Mercedes, but the German manufactuer has yet to win a teams’ title in Formula E.
The German team and Audi are both owned by the Volkswagen Audi group. The recent addition of Cupra to the series – also owned by the same group – meaning that the money spent on the program could be used elsewhere.
Rumours began to swirl that Porsche may choose to leave the series if they failed to win a constructors championship this year. However, Modlinger was very quick to squash these suggestions.
“Porsche has shown commitment to Formula E, and we want to fight for championships,” said Modlingher “Sporting success is very important to us and therefore we want to be here. We had our car win the drivers’ title last season.
“Just because it was in an Andretti does not mean Porsche failed. It is the same car, and I am proud to oversee those four cars. It has been great for the Porsche brand.
“We have worked very closely with Andretti. Essentially, there is full transparency and communication between the teams, which means that all four Porsche cars are the same.”
“Of course, we want to win the championship as a factory team, but the racing is so close in Formula E, so we are proud that Andretti won the title using our car.”
“In terms of electric mobility, it is clear that big steps are being made with road cars, and electric vehicles will be so important in the future.
“Formula E is the pinnacle of electric racing, and that is why Porsche is here. We are happy in this championship, and we are proud to be a part of it.”
