As a preview of the drive technology in its upcoming Macan Electric, Porsche has partnered with the Austrian Frauscher Shipyard to create the exclusive sports boat.

The day cruiser, based on the Frauscher 858 Fantom Air, offers travellers “excellent driving characteristics.”

The initial release of the watercraft will consist of 25 units and is set to commence shipping in 2024. According to the car manufacturer, the boat, measuring 8.67 meters (28.4 feet) in length, boasts impressive features that distinguish it from other electric vessels available on the market.

Claimed to “set the standards on the water with its typical Porsche E-Performance,” the Frauscher x Porsche 850 Fantom Air stands out with its remarkable acceleration, strong pulling power, superior performance, and, of course, its luxurious design.

“We represent state-of-the-art, high-performance, and sustainable luxury – and we are redefining this concept. Our aim is to inspire our customers and make their dreams come true,” said Lutz Meschke, deputy chairman at Porsche AG.

“Electric drives are also increasingly important in our industry. On the one hand, they are gaining more social acceptance, and on the other hand, our customers are delighted with the advantages of electromobility,” added Stefan Frauscher, CEO at Frauscher Shipyard.

To adapt its drive technology for water use, Porsche has optimised settings typically suited for road vehicles. This enables drivers to utilise the impressive Premium Platform Electric (PPE) model on which the future Macan Electric will be based. (Cover Media Via Reuters)
