It’s time to bring innovations on the street.

E-mobility, autonomous driving, shared mobility and connectivity. The automotive industry has never faced as many changes as it does now.

When will these technical innovation concepts be fit for the streets? What legal framework is required? What will the automotive industry’s cooperation models for implementation look like? How will German car companies prevail over their foreign competitors?

Discuss these and other important questions with leading experts at the Automotive Summit 2019 hosted by Porsche in Stuttgart.

We are looking forward to seeing you.
