Thomas Laudenbach takes over as head of Porsche Motorsport

Thomas Laudenbach will succeed Fritz Enzinger as head of Porsche Motorsport as of October 1, 2021, crowning a career at Porsche spanning more than twenty years.

Engineer Thomas Laudenbach, born in Santiago, Chile, takes over the reins of Porsche Motorsport. In 1998, he joined Porsche AG as head of powertrain development and was involved in race and sports car projects such as the 918 Spyder and the 911 GT3 Cup until 2013. He was also the main developer of the 3.4-liter direct injection V8 engine for the Porsche RS Spyder.

 

He succeeds Fritz Enzinger, who arrived at Porsche in 2011, to head up its LMP1 project. In 2019, Enzinger took over full responsibility for Porsche Motorsport, having achieved three overall victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans as well as a total of six world championship titles. Porsche also took on the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, and won the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship (IWSC) North American titles in the GTLM class with the 911 RSR.

 

I am delighted with the trust placed in me and excited about the tasks ahead,” comments Thomas Laudenbach. “The big goal is to build on the great successes that were achieved under Fritz Enzinger’s leadership. This is a wonderful challenge. We will adapt motorsport to the new conditions in the automotive industry – from racing for customers to factory participation in the world’s leading racing series. Our goal is to win our 20th Le Mans, we want to win world championships, both in endurance and Formula E. It is also important to continue to develop our customer races. With the Mission R concept study, we are showing how attractive this can be.
