Welcome from the Volkswagen group, especially for Porsche

The appreciation expressed by Ferrari on the hypothesis of a “rescue” for petrol-powered sports cars after 2035 adds up to that expressed by the Volkswagen Group which defines synthetic fuels as useful for vehicles with reduced production numbers such as the Porsche 911.

In a statement, the German auto giant says:

“We see e-fuels as a useful addition to the existing fleet of combustion engines and for special applications. Electrofuels from renewable energies are a contribution to sustainable mobility. The agreement offers producers and especially consumers a clear planning perspective. “

However, Volkswagen AG also declares its intention to fulfill the commitment to electrification which will lead the German group to sell over 50% electric cars by 2030.
