2013 Porsche Supercup season
Previous: 2012 Next: 2014

The 2013 Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup season was the 21st Porsche Supercup season. It began on 12 May on Circuit de Catalunya and finished on 3 November at Yas Marina Circuit, after nine races, all of which were support events for the 2013 Formula One season. A new car was introduced for the season as the Porsche 991 – the internal designation for the seventh-generation Porsche 911 – replaced the Porsche 997.[1]

Ahead of the final round of the series in Abu Dhabi, Monégasque-based British[2] driver Sean Edwards held a championship lead of eighteen points over Denmark's Nicki Thiim, with Michael Ammermüller of Germany the only other driver to remain within contention for winning the title.[3] Edwards was killed on 15 October 2013 at Queensland Raceway in Willowbank, Australia, while instructing a member of the public at a private test session.[4] Thiim ultimately won the championship, after he won both races in Abu Dhabi; Edwards ended up second overall, finishing three points ahead of Ammermüller.
