Fuel Economy and Recycling
Intelligent lightweight construction has been part of Porsche DNA since 1948 â€“ for both technological and ecological reasons. And, of course, with competitive advantages in mind. In motorsport, weight is increasingly the number one factor of success. Lightweight construction is therefore the basis for low consumption values combined with outstanding performance.
On the technical side, various components are made with a high proportion of aluminium, magnesium, plastics and super-high-strength sheet steel. The materials used have been selected for their ability to withstand load, yet they are considerably lighter overall than conventional steel.
