The German carmaker has bought a 10 percent stake in Croatian electric hypercar maker Rimac. The companies will work together and use electric tech, in fact, Porsche will look to use Rimac’s electric powertrain technology in future models. For Rimac, this move allows them to scale and be able to supply its powertrain and technological components to other companies.
