With its return to the LMP1 class of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) 2014, Porsche has come back to the upper echelons of motorsport after 16 years with its innovative sports prototype, the 919 Hybrid. For Porsche, it was only a matter of time until it rejoined the top tier of racing with a new purpose-built car. Motorsport has always been an integral component of the Porsche brand.




As the exclusive premium partner of the Porsche LMP1 team, DMG MORI supports Porsche in the FIA World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC). Both companies rely on high-tech solutions at the highest level. As technology companies, DMG MORI and Porsche continuously set new milestones which define the trends in their sectors.
Precision, innovation, design and fascinating energy efficiency solutions are major factors in the success of these two globally successful, venerable brands. The alliance between DMG MORI and Porsche bring their shared values of tradition, precision and technological leadership with a global presence to the fore once again and prove that DMG MORI is a reliable partner in every respect.


Manufacture within the parameters
As a technological partner of the Porsche LMP1 team, DMG MORI is contributing to the success of the motorsport experts. Porsche is returning to the LMP1 class of the FIA WEC in order to consolidate its original image on the markets as a sports car manufacturer with high technological standards.

In DMG MORI, Porsche has found a technology partner which will contribute to its success as a leader in machine tool innovation. DMG MORI will support Porsche in two ways: As a long-term machine supplier to the companies manufacturing the high-quality vehicle components for the team. During the 2014 season the machine tool manufacturer also constructed a parts facility at DECKEL MAHO Seebach which develops and manufactures a growing range of components for the Porsche 919 Hybrid

Maximum efficiency for the future of cars
The new efficiency-based rules of the WEC require cutting-edge hybrid technologies. The Porsche 919 Hybrid is an energy-saving concept of a hybrid vehicle. For DMG MORI, energy efficiency and economy are important issues. Both Porsche and DMG MORI’s machines have to be constantly running at their absolute best whilst making efficient use of energy.
The development and use of hybrid technology at the WEC are paving the way for the automotive industry. The racing car is a prototype for future sustainable drive systems from the sports car manufacturer. The new efficiency rules of the World Endurance Championship which limit the amount of energy that can be used per lap were the greatest technological challenge facing Porsche on its return.
