Dr Frank-Steffen Walliser will become the manager of the 911 and 718 road car divisions, reporting directly to the CEO of the company. Walliser was the project manager for the Porsche 918 Spyder, before taking on responsibility for Porsche Motorsport and developing the GT road cars based on the 911 series.

“The integration of the GT road vehicles into the 911 and 718 model series enables us to take into account significantly earlier the special features that are necessary for our uncompromising road sports cars,” said Walliser.

“It also means there will be no change to the close linking with motorsport. It’s still true for our GT vehicles: they’re born in Flacht.”

Both men take up their new roles in January 2019.
