The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS and Clubsport come ready to take on the track, but an ice racing course in Zell am See, Austria, is probably not the circuit where you expect to see them. To make the laps there even more special, these cars are burning a renewable form of gasoline.
The video above shows them sliding around the ice track, and it looks like a lot of fun. With the lack of traction, the Caymans are constantly drifting.
Porsche’s video focuses on the gasoline powering these Caymans. They are running on a biofuel that comes from food waste products. The Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup used this substance to power all of the 911 GT3 Cup cars starting with the 2021 season. This demonstration showed that the stuff was able to work in road cars, too.
Burning this fuel produces less CO2 than traditional gasoline. The way Porsche sees things combustion-powered vehicles are still going to be on the road for decades, and this material is a way to improve their emissions, the company claims.
