FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Porsche said on Friday it would leave the top category of Le Mans, LMP1, at the end of the season and instead start competing in the Formula E electric-car racing championship in 2019. “Entering Formula E and achieving success in this category are the logical outcomes of our Mission E,” Development Chief Michael Steiner said in a statement. Porsche has already taken the first steps towards developing its own Formula E racing car this year, the group said.
