What is on offer

The Porsche NEXT OI Competition offers you the unique opportunity to work with simulated Porsche sportscar APIs. You’ll get to play around with over a 140 different data sources and functions, access SDKs, tools and resources around the clock and, most importantly, work interactively with in-browser Porsche car emulators to test your apps and services. Put simply, this is your chance to work with the latest racing and electric car APIs for the world’s leading sportscar manufacturer.

To ease you in, you’ll find SDKs for iOS, Android and Node.js readily available in the developer platform. If you’re using a different system please use the REST API. The competition has been designed to be accessible for a wide range of tools, systems and platforms to make it as inclusive as possible.

  • 140+ APIs
  • Porsche emulators to test your app
  • SDKs for Android, iOS and Node.js
