TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Reveals 99X Electric Car
TAG Heuer, the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer, is the Title and Timing Partner for the Porsche Formula E Team which will contest Season 6 of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship under the name ‘TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team.’ In service of this, the team premiered the new Porsche 99X Electric car in an interactive stream where participants were actively involved in the reveal.
The 99X Electric Formula E car keeps the traditional Porsche Motorsport colours, while the Porsche emblem is clearly visible around the Halo system from a bird’s eye view. The naming format is also the same as always, with three digits representing Porsche racing cars and two-door sports cars. The Porsche 99X Electric will also serve as a development platform for fully electric production models in the future.
“With the premiere of the Porsche 99X Electric, we are taking a big step towards the Porsche works entry in Formula E,” said Fritz Enzinger, Vice President Porsche Motorsport and Group Motorsport Volkswagen AG. “I am looking forward to seeing the Porsche 99X Electric on the racetrack.”
Regarding TAG Heuer’s role as Title and Timing Partner, Porsche Motorsport Team Management & Business Relations Director Carlo Wiggers said “TAG Heyer has been firmly established in motorsport for many years and has already celebrated many successes with Porsche. We are really looking forward to welcoming TAG Heuer as our partner once again.”
