Porsche Presents DMG Mori as Exclusive Premium Partner
DMG Mori press release
With a motto of "Mission 2014. Our Return" Porsche is returning to the LMP1 class of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) after an absence of more than a decade. The new efficiency-based regulations of the WEC restricts energy consumption rather than restricting power output as had been the case in the past. This, in turn, encourages innovative technologies such as hybrid powertrains and inspires developments that could be applied to mass-produced passenger vehicles. DMG Mori, as the exclusive technology partner of the Porsche Team, will support Porsche in its return to the top class of world sports car racing. The WEC consists of eight rounds on three continents and includes the Le Mans 24 Hours as the season’s highlight.
Friedrich Enzinger, LMP1 vice president, says: “We are very proud of this partnership for our challenging WEC project.”
Rüdiger Kapitza, chairman of the Executive Board of DMG Mori Seiki AG states: "DMG Mori represents tradition, precision and technological leadership with a global presence and therefore is an ideal match for the brand values and technological demands of Porsche. We look forward to a strong, reliable partnership."
Masahiko Mori, president of DMG Mori Seiki Company Ltd, says: "Through this partnership, the spirit of sincere manufacturing and strict quality control which the World Endurance Championship (WEC) represents, we hope to grow in many aspects and strive for further business development.“
DMG Mori offers innovative high-tech machine tools and services, as well as software and energy solutions. Machine tool manufacturing is DMG Mori's core segment. The company operates worldwide at 21 production sites and 146 sales and service locations.
The DMG Mori logo is a prominent eye catcher on either side of the car’s huge fin and is also found on the car’s nose, front spoiler and below the headlights.
