Porsche Automobil Holding SE : Porsche presents University of Applied Sciences of Western Saxony with Panamera S Hybrid

05/14/2012 | 01:49pm US/Eastern
Porsche presents University of Applied Sciences of Western Saxony with Panamera S Hybrid Permanent loan for Zwickau driving simulation projects

Stuttgart/Zwickau. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is today presenting a Panamera S Hybrid to the Institute for Traffic System Technology of the University of Applied Sciences of Western Saxony in Zwickau. Students will be using the 380 hp (279 kW) Porsche with its fuel consumption of a mere 7.1 litres for their traffic planning work in the university's own driving simulator - specifically we are talking about virtual journeys for improving new roads with a high risk of accident. At Porsche's Weissach Development Centre, the Panamera S Hybrid was specially modified for the driving simulator's requirements. Moreover, Porsche will be providing the Zwickau scientists with important practical research data.

"Motivated by regional solidarity we have a long established record of close collaboration with the university, supporting thesis, giving lectures on site as well as inviting students to our Leipzig factory," explained Siegfried Bülow, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche Leipzig GmbH at the ceremonial handover of the vehicle today on the university campus. This partnership had grown over the years and been intensified last autumn with the launch of a collaborative research venture with the Porsche Development Centre, Bülow added.

"It is an alliance from which all participants benefit handsomely," said Wolfgang Hatz, Member of the Executive Board, Research and Development of Porsche AG. "This is a mutually beneficial relationship. We synergise with the Saxon scientists' know-how and in return we provide our development data and vehicles for research. In that way we keep in contact with tomorrow's top experts and recruit the best graduates directly from the university."
