Porsche and Mobil 1 form a partnership that is based on delivering optimum performance for a truly outstanding driver experience. This partnership is one that has evolved since 1996, spanning four generations of the iconic Porsche 911 and facilitating the introduction of several new models in a variety of car ranges.
Having hit the 20-year milestone, this partnership has been extended until 2021. “ExxonMobil is one of our closest and most important cooperation partners, not only in motorsport but also in the development of our production engines, which are filled at the factory with the high-performance lubricant Mobil 1,” says Porsche’s Member of the Executive Board for Research and Development, Dr. Michael Steiner. “Over the last 20 years, ExxonMobil has contributed significantly to the good performance of our racing vehicles..”
Fully synthetic Mobil 1™ 0W-40 is designed to minimise wear and maintain optimum performance under high stress conditions and this gives Porsche the confidence to recommend it for all of their petrol cars – whether they are destined for Siberia or Africa.
In what represents a major change for Porsche, the new facelifted 911 features a turbocharged flat-six engine as standard, rather than the traditional normally-aspirated engine. With more power, more torque, lower CO2 emissions and reduced fuel consumption, this sets a new benchmark in performance that places great demands on the engine oil. That’s why Porsche has chosen to fill the new 911 with Mobil 1. Keep your Porsche running like a Porsche with Mobil 1.
Recently, the Porsche and Mobil 1 partnership celebrated a significant milestone – with the one-millionth Porsche-produced engine being factory filled with Mobil 1. This number continues to rise as Mobil 1 consistently delivers on its promise of fuel economy benefits, engine wear protection and temperature durability. With Porsche explicitly recommending Mobil 1 as service-fill lubricant, this production landmark reflects the reliability and continuous improvement of Mobil 1 oil.
What is more, since 2007, Mobil 1 has been title sponsor of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, the fastest and most prestigious international one-make championship. Mobil 1 0W-40 is used in every one of the cars on the track, exactly the same product found in any Porsche-produced petrol engine in a road car. This championship epitomises the union between two world-class companies – in name, philosophy and performance.
