For the first time ever, Porsche has produced the complete housing of an e-drive using 3D printing. The motor-gearbox unit was produced using an additive laser-melting process — and, thanks to its quality and reliability, could be powering electric supercars in the future. Find out how the engineers in Porsche’s legendary development center at Weissach achieved this.

Lighter, more rigid: Porsche has produced its first complete housing for an electric drive using 3D printing. The engine-gearbox unit, which was produced using an additive laser fusion process, passed all the quality and stress tests without any problems.

The additively manufactured alloy…

Marcel Bertram and Daniel Diener, User Experience Designer at Porsche, share their experience of collaboratively leading the topic of UX Design Operations. Together they have explored the new meaning of leadership in an agile organization and how to benefit from the operation model of pairing.

In today’s rapidly changing environment and digitalization, most companies find themselves in the transformation into an agile organization that requires a rethinking of the traditional hierarchical management model, which is considered to be too slow and rigid.

Pairing like in driving rally — two people complementing each other striving for the same goal.

Being successful in this transformation is inevitably connected to a new style of leadership. A culture that cultivates…

As Product Manager for Data Streaming at Porsche, Sridhar Mamella has been responsible for real-time data transport in all areas of the company for two years now. Following his previous blog post on the basics of Streamzilla, he explains how the internal data streaming platform becomes a highly scalable and reliable hybrid solution with minimal support effort — a fundamental step for Porsche’s path to the cloud.

The Porsche Taycan Turbo S (Electric power consumption combined: 28,7–28,0 kWh/100 km; CO2-emissions combined: 0 g/km) is collecting real-time data through various sensors within the vehicle.

Data streaming is an important part of Porsche’s IT strategy. Since 2019, I have been working as a big data and data streaming expert at Porsche to build a central data streaming platform…

There are many analogies for social and professional networks. A good network is like a spider’s web, it is open in all directions, expanding in ever-increasing circles with every step and encounter. Or, like a cocoon, it gives us support while we grow. But there is yet another way to think about social and professional networks, namely via the automotive world: In cars, the exchange of data and information also works via lines and signals. This leads us to the subject of this blog post — how to network in the automotive industry.

Blockchain solutions are used especially when transparent but secure traceability is required. Randi Bauer and Antoon Versteeg explain how this technology could increase transparency in the automotive industry and share insights about the recent Startup Autobahn collaboration project with Circularise.

How can automobile manufacturers gather more information about the parts and materials they use and provide relevant information to their customers? How can blockchain technology help to increase transparency across the value chain? And how can we make sure our car parts are recycled the right way? …

The exponentially increasing power of IT and the emergence and adoption of new technologies — such as machine learning, blockchain and the (industrial) internet of things — are rapidly transforming the automotive landscape. …

It is estimated that there are well over one billion motor vehicles on our roads worldwide. Given that the vast majority of these vehicles are still powered by petrol or diesel engines, it is crucial to not only accelerate the shift to electromobility but also to manage and reduce emissions of existing fleets. Efuels can make an indispensable contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to hold global warming well below two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. Therefore, eFuels are an important element in Porsche’s efforts to drive decarbonization.

What is still ahead of us with Covid-19 are the findings on the emotional challenge, especially for those who do not live in a family…

Since 2017, Porsche is a partner of the innovation platform Startup Autobahn. There, young start-ups and industry-leading companies join forces to drive innovative technologies forward towards the future of mobility. Here’s a look at four of our most exciting AI collaboration projects.

Startup Autobahn acts as an interface between industry-leading companies and technology startups.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is omnipresent — and yet sometimes difficult for the general public to grasp. The term AI alone is used so liberally that probably hardly anybody knows what exactly is being referred to. To give you a better sense of what is possible with the technology in regards to mobility, we have collected some of our…
