“I share the same ambition and can hardly wait to bond with the team and work together to ensure a successful start to the Gen3 era.”
Da Costa won just one race this season, but now joins a team who finished seventh in the championship, four places below the 30-year-old’s former outfit.
Formula E enters a new era next season with the Gen3 cars, with Porsche seeing the regulation change as a chance to move further up the pecking order.
“We’re very much looking forward to working with Antonio,” said Porsche’s Formula E director of motorsport Florian Modlinger.
“I know him from various racing series and I have a lot of respect for him on a personal level. It’s incredibly what he has already achieved in Formula E.
“We’ll do our utmost to give him a competitive Gen3 car so that he can fight for wins and titles. The team is very much looking forward to welcoming him.”
The Portuguese driver also competes in the LMP2 category of the World Endurance Championship for Jota, which will become a Porsche LMDh customer next year.
Although the works Porsche driver line-up has already been confirmed, da Costa’s Formula E move could possibly see him compete for the factory team in the future.
