Lubricant World - - CONTENTS -

Exxon­Mo­bil is ex­pand­ing its global busi­ness and tech­ni­cal part­ner­ship with Porsche by team­ing with the lux­ury Ger­man au­tomaker on its For­mula E se­ries car for the 2019/ 2020 sea­son. The new part­ner­ship rep­re­sents Exxon­Mo­bil's first en­try into elec­tric mo­tor­sports. Start­ing from the first race in Saudi Ara­bia at the end of this year, Exxon­Mo­bil will pro­vide Mo­bil- branded high- per­for­mance elec­tric pow­er­train flu­ids to Porsche, de­vel­oped specif­i­cally to meet the spe­cial­ized de­mands of elec­tric ve­hi­cles.

The new tech­ni­cal part­ner­ship joins Exxon­Mo­bil's ex­ist­ing ros­ter of global mo­tor­sports ac­tiv­i­ties with Porsche in­clud­ing the World En­durance Cham­pi­onships, IMSA WeatherTec­h SportsCar Cham­pi­onship, Porsche Mo­bil 1 Su­per­cup, Porsche Car­rera Cup and nu­mer­ous cus­tomer rac­ing ac­tiv­i­ties around the world.

“Our en­try into For­mula E with Porsche not only rep­re­sents an ex­pan­sion to our suc­cess­ful busi­ness re­la­tion­ship, but an ex­pan­sion of a win­ning part­ner­ship in rac­ing,” said Russ Green, Vice Pres­i­dent, fin­ished lu­bri­cants at Exxon­Mo­bil. “As Porsche be­gins to com­pete and demon­strate the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of its elec­tric ve­hi­cle tech­nol­ogy, Exxon­Mo­bil is en­gi­neer­ing a full suite of Mo­bil- branded lu­bri­cants to help the new Porsche For­mula E team build on its legacy of rac­ing suc­cess around the world. Mo­tor­sport pro­vides the ul­ti­mate prov­ing ground to con­tinue to de­velop high- per­for­mance lu­bri­cants and flu­ids.”

“As a key tech­ni­cal part­ner of more than 20 years, no other lu­bri­cant sup­plier un­der­stands the Porsche per­for­mance phi­los­o­phy like Exxon­Mo­bil,” said Fritz Enzinger, Vice Pres­i­dent, Porsche Mo­tor­sport. “Exxon­Mo­bil has not only been a valu­able part­ner for our com­mer­cial busi­ness, but an im­por­tant team­mate in our pur­suit of wins and cham­pi­onships from Se­bring to Le Mans. They were a nat­u­ral ad­di­tion to our For­mula E team as we en­ter an ex­cit­ing new era of rac­ing for Porsche.”
