    Re: Porsche 917 Concept Study

    This is the first time I am seeing a possible return to Le Mans (albeit in the distant future) mentioned by a Porsche exec:https://www.thechronicle.com.au/news...uture/3668599/

    Blume says battery tech will feature in Porsche's motorsport programs - both in the short term, with Formula E, and possibly in the long term at Le Mans.

     

    "When battery technology will be prepared for long distance races, why not?" he says.

    "Up to now we will continue with GT motorsport in the Le Mans series and go to Formula E.

    "But never say never for the future. Also, the guys from the WEC and Le Mans have to think about how to make evolution for their series, for [the] future.

    "But, why not?"

    I'm no specialist, but if they are waiting for battery technology to catch up so they can go back to Le Mans, then I'm afraid we are in for a long, long, long wait.Smiley

    This could be Porsche's entry to the new LMP1 class.

    Hybrid drivetrain.

    Porsche is king of Hybrid tech right now, no one is close. Look no farther than the drivetrain in the 919. It's more advanced than the F1 hybrid system.

    "This Porsche concept celebrates 50 years of the 917"

    (11 March 2019)

    The Porsche 917 won Le Mans outright in 1970 and ‘72, and dominated North America’s CanAm series in 1972 and ‘73. And this year it turns 50.

    To celebrate its half-centenary, Porsche has done some things. First, it set about restoring the first-ever 917. Chassis number 001 was revealed at the 1969 Geneva Motor Show and used mostly as a “test and presentation vehicle”.

    In its life it went through many colour and spec changes, making its restoration especially challenging. It took a team of engineers and technicians over a year, using original parts and materials where possible, to return 001 to original condition.

    It will form part of a special exhibition at Porsche’s museum in Germany, running from May to September. Ten of the 14 exhibits are actual 917s (with a combined power output of 7,795bhp), and one is the model pictured above. It’s a concept study produced by a “small number of designers and engineers” within the company as a homage to the 917’s first Le Mans victory.

    Look closely and you’ll see it’s a bit rough around the edges - this is a full-scale model, nothing else, that’s supposed to give us an idea of what a modern-day 917 might look like. No plans to turn it into a real thing, which is a crying shame because it looks ace. Think Porsche ought to revive the 917 proper?

    Beautiful


    Re: Porsche 917 Concept Study

    Saw a 917K next to a Ford GT40 this month. What a beauty.

    Funny to see the details, nowaday the 917 looks a little bit like a DIY car. Nowwhere close to the perfection of a modern F1 car

    Im not sure Whoopsy. Porsche have done that and it seems that their current line of thinking is that they wont be back to Le Mans until they can race a full EV.  In order to that, they have to wait for the battery tech to evolve sufficiently . I have no idea what are the exact parameters required for a battery to allow them to race over long distances (let alone 24h), but I assume it is vastly greater than what is currently available. 


    Re: Porsche 917 Concept Study

    There is no reason to return to Le mans top class with the regulations planned. Disaster. Not now.
