PURE project may have died, but the engine that it was developing was inherited by its supporter TEOS Powertrain Engineering, located in Montigny-le-Bretonneux, not far from Versailles. The PURE Corporation itself was liquidated at the end of 2015.
Teos is a joint venture between Mecachrome and the IFP Investissements, a French public company which is dedicated to research in energy and hybrid development. With the change in rules in 2017, Teos did approach some F1 teams, hoping to find some interest and indicated at the time that the project was still being headed by two old stagers in the F1 world Jean-Pierre Boudy and Jean-Francois Nicolino.
If money can be found, this engine could be developed as an independent supplier.
