2016 represented the year of the 30th consecutive season of the French Porsche Carrera Cup, one of the most competitive and longest-running one-make series in Europe. It is a fact that a number of Porsche Carrera Cup France champions are today official Porsche factory drivers: Patrick Pilet (champion in 2007), Frédéric Makowiecki (2010), Kévin Estre (2011).

The 2016 season offered prizes in four categories: Class A, Class B (gentleman drivers, Bronze on the FIA rankings), Rookie Award and Teams title. Four of the six race weekends were organized jointly with the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Benelux. A total of twelve races were run (two races per weekend), most of them on European tracks (only two of them in France): Barcelona, Spa, Zandvoort, Le Mans/Bugatti, Imola and Le Castellet.
