Geneva, March 7, 2017: F1 racing legend and Indy 500 champion, Emerson Fittipaldi, unveiled his dream track car, the much-anticipated Fittipaldi EF7 Vision Gran Turismo by Pininfarina, at the Geneva Motor Show today.

The ultra-light, all carbon fiber supercar fuses the vision of F1 and Indy Car racing champion Fittipaldi, iconic Italian design company Pininfarina and race-bred German engineering firm HWA AG, and fulfills Fittipaldi’s dream to produce a car with fierce track-racing capabilities, for drivers of all skill levels.

“I have tried for years to explain to others what it truly feels like to be behind the steering wheel of a championship racecar. There is adrenaline and elation all rolled into an awe-inspiring inner fulfillment that leaves you craving for more. This is what our dream team created in the EF7 Vision Gran Turismo by Pininfarina,” said Fittipaldi of the first car to be released under the Fittipaldi Motors marque.

Revealing a commandingly sleek design underscored by an extraordinary power-to-weight ratio, the supercar’s design theme finds astounding aerodynamic expression in the vehicle’s flowing, aggressive lines and assertive yet incredibly beautiful and pure design work.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, threw a spectacular party to celebrate the end of the 2016 Olympic Games. Closer in feel to a rock concert than a ceremony, the high-energy mix of music, dance and physical art neatly summed up the sense of joyful abandon that the city prides itself on.

Samba, frevo and choro - dances synonymous with Brazil’s rich musical heritage - all made a welcome bow with thousands of high-class athletes in attendance.

Stuttgart & Leipzig, Germany — A Porsche is by far more than just a car: Porsche stands for an outstanding driving experience, timeless design, strong emotions and a special lifestyle. Two German actresses, Claudia Eisinger and Julia Dietze had the opportunity to find this out for themselves on the Porsche racing track in Leipzig on 11 July. Under the guidance of the Porsche Carrera Cup racing driver, Michelle Gatting, they both demonstrated their skills on Porsche’s own racing track. They both took on the challenging circuit at full tilt and it was clear to see that they were having a lot of fun. “I once sat in a Porsche and ever since then I have dreamt of driving one at full speed. The experience I had with Porsche in Leipzig today was better than I ever could have imagined: unlimited fun while driving, top speeds, pure adrenaline - and yet I still felt completely safe”, said Claudia Eisinger.
