Porsche Taycan Turbo S new Formula E safety car

The Porsche Taycan Turbo S, the brand’s first fully electric sports car, is the new safety car in the electric racing series of Formula E this season. The vehicle will make its debut at the opening of the Formula E season on January 28/29 in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia.

Designed to be more than just a Formula E safety car, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S stands out for its livery in the colors of all eleven teams competing in the “electric“, As well as for the colors of the FIA ​​and Formula E. The 22 that can be seen on the livery highlights the number of drivers vying for the title of Formula E champion.

Thanks to its driveability and safety, as well as its output of up to 560 kW (761 hp), the Taycan Turbo S will be tasked with taking on the challenging role of a safety car in the only fully electric motorsport world championship, which runs in the heart of iconic cities of the world, including London, Mexico City, New York, Berlin, Munich and Seoul. With launch control, the top model of the Taycan range accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 260 km / h.

Porsche Taycan Turbo S required some modifications to become a safety car

The conversion of the Porsche Taycan Turbo S into a safety car required the installation of a cage and racing seats with six-point safety belts, as well as wiring for lighting and the Marelli Logger System.

Flashing lights have been integrated into the bumpers. The cockpit was also equipped with a fire extinguisher and a high-tech communication system. As a result, the safety vehicle meets all the service requirements in a highly competitive series such as the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

“We are proud that Formula E has entrusted this task to a Porsche, which is important for the safety of its drivers”, says Thomas Laudenbach, Vice President of Porsche Motorsport. “With the Taycan Turbo S as the official safety car, we are making an important contribution to safety on the track and also underlining the importance of Formula E for Porsche Motorsport. The distinctive design illustrates our commitment to the successful future of this innovative racing series. Even if we are rivals on the track, we are spreading this message to the world together. Furthermore, we hope that this will allow us to also attract a younger target audience who is not yet a fan of motorsport ”.
