Since 2015, she has raced in the GTD class at the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship (IWSC), the premier American sports car racing series. In her first year, she finished second and in the following two years, she was the first women to secure the drivers' titles in North America.

So is it an option for the racing driver? When it comes to sports car genes, it certainly passes the test.

Its universities attract the entrepreneurs of tomorrow, famous Danish and international companies have their headquarters in Aarhus. The population increases year on year. The city’s port has developed into the largest container port in Denmark and can also welcome cruise giants from all over the world. A change which can be seen in the city; small, cosy, traditional Scandinavian-style houses alternate with modern architecture, which represents new Scandinavia with its clear style. A city that thrives on the power of contrasts. Just like the

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
