Michael Steiner on the future of Porsche sportscars
As Member of the Executive Board, Research and Development, Michael Steiner is responsible for series production and Porsche Motorsport’s racing projects. In episode seven of the “Inside E” podcast, Steiner speaks about changes in the automotive industry, the future of the sportscar manufacturer, and technical innovations ranging from motor racing to production development.
Entering the fully-electric ABB FIA Formula E Championship with the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team has high priority and promises to produce synergies between motorsport and future production developments, as Steiner explains in the podcast.
The manufacturer then definitively heralded a new era with the launch of its first fully-electric sports car, the Porsche Taycan, in September 2019. “With electric cars, it not only comes down to the range of the cars, but also primarily the existing charging infrastructure,” Steiner explained.
