FRANKFURT, Germany/TOKYO -- While other automakers race to field electrified vehicles, Porsche looks to develop a fuel that will keep its iconic gasoline-burning cars relevant in the decarbonization era.

Porsche's eFuel, which is under development, combines "green hydrogen" generated by renewable energy with carbon dioxide captured from the atmosphere. The methanol produced from the process is converted into gasoline.
