Congestion-free urban mobility—Porsche is on board
Porsche and Boeing are planning to work together to tap into the market for premium urban air mobility. They have now signed a Memorandum of Understanding to this effect. “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”, says Detlev von Platen, Member of the Executive Board for Sales and Marketing at Porsche AG. “We are combining the strengths of two leading global companies to address a potential key market segment of the future.” According to a study by the management consultancy Porsche Consulting, growth in this market will speed up palpably from 2025 on. Urban aircraft could then provide faster and more flexible personal transport than ground-based forms of transport.
