      Stuttgart / Zagreb. New investment: Porsche has acquired ten percent of the technology and sports car company Rimac Automobili. The Croatian company develops and produces components for electromobility and even manufactures electric supercars. Against the background of its electric offensive, Porsche is aiming for a development partnership with Rimac. Founder Mate Rimac, 30, started working in 2009 in a garage on his vision of a fast, electrically powered sports car. Recently, Rimac has now presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2018 his electric vehicle "C Two". The two-seater produces just under 2,000 hp and reaches a top speed of 412 kilometers per hour. It has a range of 650 kilometers (NEDC) and can be charged by a 250 kW fast charging system within half an hour to 80 percent of the battery charge. In addition, the company develops and produces high performance electric drives and battery systems. "With the development of all-electric two-seater supercars such as 'Concept One' and 'C Two' as well as innovative vehicle components, Rimac has impressively demonstrated its expertise in electromobility," says Lutz Meschke, Deputy Chairman of the Executive Board and Finance and IT of Porsche: "We consider the ideas and approaches of the young company to be very promising and therefore strive for close cooperation with Rimac in the form of a development partnership. " Overall, the rapidly growing Zagreb-based company employs just under 400 people. Rimac focuses on high-voltage battery technology, electric drive and the development of digital interfaces between man and machine (HMI). In addition, Rimac is active in the development and production of e-bikes. This business was spun off in 2013 at the subsidiary Greyp Bikes. "The partnership with Porsche is a very important step for Rimac. Our goal is to be a modular and systems supplier for automotive manufacturers in the areas of electrification, connectivity and driver assistance systems, "explains Managing Director Mate Rimac.

        Porsche takes a stake in the Croatian technology and sports car company Rimac

        Stuttgart/Zagreb. Porsche AG has invested in the technology and electric sports car company Rimac Automobili by taking a minority shareholding of ten per cent. The company develops and produces electric vehicle components and manufactures electric super sports cars. As part of its electrification efforts, Porsche is seeking a development partnership with the young company.

        In 2009, founder Mate Rimac (30) began working from his garage on his vision of producing electric sports cars that could both be fast and offer excitement. Rimac recently presented the latest version of its electric hypercar, the “C Two”, at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2018. The two-seater produces around 2,000 hp and reaches a top speed of 412 kilometres per hour. It has a range of 650 kilometres (NEDC Cycle), and achieves an 80% battery charge in 30 minutes through a 250 kW fast charging system. Furthermore, the company engineers and manufactures high-performance electric vehicle powertrain systems and battery systems.

        “By developing the purely electric two-seaters super sports cars, like the ‘Concept One’ or ‘C Two’, as well as core vehicle systems, Rimac has impressively demonstrated its credentials in the field of electromobility”, says Lutz Meschke, Deputy Chairman of the Executive Board and Member of the Executive Board for Finance and IT at Porsche. He adds: “We feel that Rimac’s ideas and approaches are extremely promising, which is why we hope to enter into close collaboration with the company in the form of a development partnership.”

        The fast-growing Zagreb-based company employs a total of around 400 employees. Rimac’s main focus is on high-voltage battery technology, electric powertrains and the development of digital interfaces between man and machine (HMI Development). Rimac also develops and produces e-bikes under its subsidiary Greyp Bikes, which was founded in 2013.

        “This partnership now is an important step for Rimac on our way to become a component and system supplier of choice for the industry in electrification, connectivity and the exciting field of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems”, explains Rimac’s CEO Mate Rimac.

          It makes sense with the mission E Taken Taycan being in the pipeline and overall burying of Tesla.
