Porsche and the Andretti Global Formula E team will continue to work together until at least 2026. Despite some pressure from Porsche's Pascal Wehrlein during the final race of Season 9 in London, where Wehrlein was close to winning, Andretti still managed to secure their first Formula E drivers' championship with Jake Dennis. With this new agreement, Andretti will keep using the Porsche 99X Electric in the all-electric racing series, showing the team's trust in Porsche's EV technology.

Michael Andretti, Chairman and CEO of Andretti Global said: "It’s an exciting time to be a part of Formula E and we feel confident in our position in the series, which is due in large part to our partnership with Porsche. From day one our goal has been to win races and championships, and Porsche has helped us achieve both since joining forces in Season 9. With all the success we’ve shared with the GEN3 car, I can’t wait to see what we can do together in the GEN3 Evo era."

Thomas Laudenbach, Vice President, of Porsche Motorsport, said: "We are obviously very pleased about the continuation of our partnership. The Andretti name is one of the most renowned in global motorsports, so the contract extension is of particular importance to us. Andretti and the Porsche factory team work together in many areas in Formula E.

"We drive each other to peak performances. The standings at the halfway mark are proof for this: both teams find themselves in the top three, and so do two of the four drivers. Plus, together we are leading the Manufacturer's Trophy for Porsche."
