Now Porsche's racing cars only run on synthetic gasoline

The cars in the Porsche Supercup now only run on synthetic petrol. It is estimated that each team will use 50,000 liters of 'e-fuel' over the course of the season.

The Porsche Supercup has switched to synthetic petrol. The fuel, which comes from Porsche's fuel plant in Chile, will be used in the total of 32 cars in the series.

Porsche itself says that the fuel is almost CO2-neutral, and that each team will probably use 50,000 liters of the synthetic petrol over the course of 2024.

This is stated by the Germans from Zuffenhausen in a press release .

The Supercup – and thus the fast 911 racers – is also this year as a support class in connection with 8 European Formula 1 races.

The first lob will be held in connection with the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix on May 19, as the 911s and Formula 1 cars will each race separately after the Italian Grand Prix in September.

It is the first time that the Supercup cars run on fully synthetic petrol. But e-fuel is nothing new in 911s. In fact, since 2021, the cars have been able to run on partially synthetic gasoline without any problems.

There is no question of a completely synthetic fuel either. In any case, Porsche will initially only state that petrol is 'almost' CO2-neutral.

Having said that, Porsche continues to develop and invest in the synthetic fuel. In addition to the factory in Chile, e-fuel will be produced in the USA, Australia and Uruguay.

Initially, Porsche will only use the artificially created gasoline in racing cars. But there is nothing in the way of pouring it on street cars.

The competitors from Stellantis will already guarantee that 28 million of the cars the group has produced over time run on petrol without any problems. Read more about it here .
