Porsche announces a change in leadership for the 911 and 718 with Frank Moser taking over the development responsibility of the two sportscar model lines from Frank-Steffen Walliser.

Moser, 52, joined Porsche in 1996. He worked in road-car development for more than 16 years before moving to production and becoming head of quality at the German automaker’s Zuffenhausen factory in 2013, where he also oversaw corporate quality.

“I have exciting tasks ahead of me,” Moser says. “On the one hand, I will be preserving the core values of our iconic 911 while carefully further developing these. On the other, we aim to electrify our 718 model line by the middle of the decade.”

Walliser, 53, who rose to prominence as project leader of the 918 Spyder and head of Porsche Motorsport before taking responsibility for the 911 and 718 model lines in 2019, will continue to play a key role in the development of future Porsche models as vice president-complete vehicle architecture and characteristics.

“Our 911 and 718 sports car series have a pair of safe hands in Frank Moser,” Walliser says. “He knows our cars to the very last detail. He was the one who gave our models the final blessing before they were launched – until now, from a quality point of view.”
