The agreement also includes outfitting the future Porsche Formula E team. As from December 2019, the sports car manufacturer will enter the series for electric race cars with its own works team.
“Formula E is a highly attractive race series,” says Oliver Blume, CEO of Porsche AG. “It offers us the perfect environment to consistently further develop our vehicles in terms of efficiency and sustainability. We are looking forward to our debut in the series in the 2019/2020 season. The renowned fashion company Hugo Boss is a perfect partner for us as the team outfitter.”
Langer: “Our cooperation will reach a new level”
“Hugo Boss and Porsche both stand for innovation and perfection,” says Mark Langer, CEO of Hugo Boss AG. “We have already cooperated successfully in the area of motor sports over the course of recent years and decades. That is why I am delighted that our cooperation will now reach a new level with the future-oriented Formula E series.”
The brand partnership of the two companies also covers other areas away from motor sports. For example, the fashion house will offer a “Porsche x BOSS” collection in the “BOSS Stores” and its online shop from March next year.
