Porsche GT4 ePerformance

MICHELIN for the new Porsche GT4 e-Performance

For more than 20 years, we have been working with Porsche hand in hand in championships to speed up innovation on the road. We are now supporting the German manufacturer in its transition towards fully-electric vehicles.

Designing tyres for the next premium e-cars

We see Porsche’s all-electric racing program as a perfect opportunity to accelerate the development and transfer of technological innovations, and especially our sustainable mobility-related innovation work, to future tyres for electric vehicles. The energy transition represents a real opportunity for growth, enabling it to express all its expertise and innovation potential..

To achieve this, we have developed specially designed tyres to meet the new requirements of electric mobility: autonomy, durability, resistance to battery weight… In this instance, Motorsport is an excellent innovation laboratory to develop new ranges of tyres.

And we go even further on the racing track by equipping the Porsche’s new full-electric GT4 ePerformance. This prototype, with variable power and all-wheel drive, is designed for a wide variety of racing formats like Sprint races on a circuit, hill climbs on mountain roads, drift races in the snow. So as to mastering the 1,000hp of the racing car, we equipped it with revolutionary high-performance 18-inches racing tyres which include 63% sustainable materials(1)

Not only do these tyres incorporate natural rubber and recycled carbon black recovered from end-of-life tyres, but they also contain orange and lemon peel, pine resin, sunflower oil and recycled scrap steel. In compliance with the firm’s Michelin in Motion strategic plan, all Michelin tyres will be made exclusively from sustainable materials by 2050.
