Rimac Automobili develops and produces electric vehicle components and manufactures electric super sports cars, and Porsche is seeking a development partnership with the young company, according to a news release from the German carmaker.

Rimac’s main focus is on high-voltage battery technology, electric powertrains and the development of digital interfaces between man and machine (HMI Development).

Rimac also develops and produces e-bikes under its subsidiary Greyp Bikes, which was founded in 2013.
