Mobil 1™ – Porsche’s recommended oil

Porsche and the Mobil 1™ team collaborate in a partnership based on delivering optimum performance for a truly outstanding driver experience. This partnership has evolved since 1996, spanning four generations of the iconic Porsche 911 and facilitating the introduction of several new models in a variety of car ranges.

20 years strong and counting

This partnership has been extended until 2021, and recently hit its 20-year milestone in 2016. "ExxonMobil is one of our closest and most important cooperation partners, not only in motorsport but also in the development of our production engines, which are filled at the factory with the high-performance lubricant Mobil 1," says Dr. Michael Steiner, Porsche’s Member of the Executive Board - Research and Development. "Over the last 20 years, ExxonMobil has contributed significantly to the good performance of our racing vehicles."

Because Mobil 1 oils are designed to provide exceptional performance and protection in extreme conditions, Porsche recommends the unique formulation for all of their gas-powered models. You can find the right oil for your Porsche with our helpful tool.

Partners in performance

Porsche shares the same commitment to research and advanced technology that goes into Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil. And Mobil 1 oils offer the durability, optimum engine efficiency and anti-wear protection that Porsche’s high-performance sports cars require. The Mobil 1 team proudly supports the 900 horsepower Porsche 919 Hybrid in the World Endurance Championship and the 460 horsepower Porsche 911 GT3 Cup in the Porsche Mobil 1™ Supercup.

Since 2007, Mobil 1 has been the title sponsor of the Porsche Mobil 1™ Supercup, the fastest and most prestigious international one-make championship. Nowhere is the incredible success of this technology partnership more visible. Mobil 1 oil is used in every one of the cars on the track, and it can also be found in Porsche-produced, gas-powered engines on the road. This championship epitomizes the union between two world-class companies – in name, philosophy and performance.

One million with Mobil 1

The one-millionth Porsche-produced engine rolled off factory lines with Mobil 1 synthetic motor oil – a significant milestone for one of the most well-known lubricant technology partnerships in the world. This number continues to rise as Mobil 1 oils consistently deliver on their promise of fuel economy benefits, engine wear protection and temperature durability. With Porsche explicitly recommending Mobil 1 oils as its service fill lubricant, this production landmark reflects the celebrated reliability and continuous improvement of Mobil 1 oils.
