Porsche's 99X Formula E racer is shockingly good-looking

The car pairs wild styling with an electric drivetrain based loosely on the hybrid system from the 919 LMP1 car.

Porsche 99X Formula E racer

Porsche's 99X electric racer was unveiled with the help of the internet in a streamed event on Twitch.

In it, the team's drivers were essentially controlled by the people watching the stream.

The 99X has an all-electric drivetrain loosely based on the hybrid system from the 919 LMP1 car.

The 99X uses an 800-volt power system, much like the Taycan production EV.

Formula E mandates a spec chassis, but the drivetrain is open to the teams to figure out.

The rear end of the 99X is part fighter jet and part cartoon.

Because Formula E cars have relatively little in the way of horsepower, they rely on highly developed aerodynamics.
