Porsche and Boeing Electric Flying Car Project
Porsche and Boeing collaborate in the development of a flying electric vehicle. They both signed to explore the “premium urban air mobility market” and the feasibility of moving cars away from congested roads and into the sky.
The aim is to develop a concept for a fully-electric vertical take-off and landing vehicle.
Detlev von Platen, member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG, said: “Porsche is looking to enhance its scope as a sports car manufacturer by becoming a leading brand for premium mobility. In the longer term, this could mean moving into the third dimension of travel.”
Steve Nordlund, Vice President and General Manager at Boeing NeXt, said: “This collaboration builds on our efforts to develop a safe and efficient new mobility ecosystem, and provides an opportunity to investigate the development of a premium urban air mobility vehicle with a leading automotive brand.”
“Porsche and Boeing together bring precision engineering, style and innovation to accelerate urban air mobility worldwide.”
