Porsche and Mobil 1™: 25 years together

For over a quarter of a century, Mobil 1™ and Porsche have enjoyed one of the longest-lasting and most successful partnerships in motoring. The innovation they have brought to the track, together with Mobil 1’s long engine life protection*, has led to exceptional performance on the road.

“Together, we have celebrated unforgettable moments securing victories at long distance classics such as Le Mans and Daytona and winning titles in the most important motor racing championships around the world.”

*Long engine life protection applies to Mobil 1 products approved by Porsche and used in accordance with instructions in the car owner manual.

“ExxonMobil is one of our closest and most important cooperation partners, not only in motorsport but also in the development of our combustion 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.

Mobil 1 has been a Porsche Motorsport partner since 1996 and, at the start of the 2007 season, became the title sponsor of the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, the world’s fastest and most prestigious one-make championship. Mobil 1 is not just a supplier, our oils are integral to the performance of the race cars. This gives Mobil 1 the unique opportunity to take what is learnt on the track and apply it directly to the road.

ExxonMobil’s relationship with Porsche Motorsport is one of the longest and most successful in the world of racing. Mobil has developed the lubricants Porsche needed for the World Endurance Championships, IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup and Porsche Carrera Cup.

Mobil has been the official lubricant supplier to the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team and its Porsche 99X car since it entered the Formula E global electric racing championships in the 2019/20 season. This partnership continuously pushes technical boundaries, aiming for the highest level of performance. And it is breaking new ground with the development of fluids for GT4 e-Performance, which will help shape the future of electric motor racing.


“As a key technical partner of more than 20 years, no other lubricant supplier understands the Porsche performance philosophy like ExxonMobil. They were a natural addition to our Formula E team as we enter an exciting new era of racing for Porsche.”

Thomas Laudenbach, Vice President of Porsche Motorsport

“As Porsche begins to compete and demonstrate the capabilities of its electric vehicle technology, ExxonMobil is engineering a full suite of Mobil-branded lubricants to help the new Porsche Formula E team build on its legacy of racing success around the world. Motorsport provides the ultimate proving ground to continue to develop high-performance lubricants and fluids.”
