    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    Apologize guys, those were posted on twitter saying it was updated PLMP1. Got excited but should looked at it closer. I'm glad anyhow as I like Porsche's rear end better and do not like the air vents above the rear fenders.

    Porsche 919 Hybrid -- The LMP1 Regulations and Technology...

    "2014 will see the introduction of completely new rules for the FIA World Endurance Championship and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. These rules will restore prototype sport to the status which has always been a hallmark of the highest class in long-distance motor racing: putting tomorrow's technologies through their paces today in the toughest of motorsports tests. Find out about the technical challenges in the new WEC regulations for the Porsche 919 Hybrid, our contestant for the 2014 Le Mans 24-hours in this video..."

    Porsche Le Mans Legends - Jacky Ickx and the 936...

    "Success in endurance racing demands an extraordinary car and superhuman driving, but winning the world's toughest and most famous endurance race repeatedly is the making of legends. 

    Such is undoubtedly true of Jacky Ickx, who drove to victory for Porsche in the 24 Heures du Mans not once, but four times. Winning in 1976,v1977 and 1981 in the Porsche 936, and in 1982 driving the 956, Ickx helped establish the Porsche dominance of the event that would continue throughout the 1980s. 

    Here he reflects on a car with which he shares his legendary status, and looks forward to Porsche's return to endurance racing next year - and the remaking of a legend."

    Porsche LMP1 Safety Concept...

    "Whether sportscar or thoroughbred racing vehicle, the top priority for every Porsche is always the same: people. During all our technical deliberations, and in every strategic decision, our number one concern is always the driver. Or to be more precise, their safety - in every situation. 

    The new LMP1 rules for the FIA WEC 2014 make driver safety an even more important consideration, and they were a crucial factor right from the start of work on the Porsche 919 Hybrid. Porsche works driver Timo Bernhard explains the safety concept of our contestant for the 2014 24h of Le Mans..."

    Yes, we could be onto a new Porsche headlight style for years to come. Subaru will gladly hand over the term "Bugeye" to Porsche Smiley  Another 991 detail I'm not so fond of.

    Hahaha true, but luckily to a lesser extent.
    Imo, in the 991 it only really shows on pictures. When standing next to the car in rel life, it's not too bad at all.

    So since Martini just resigned a sponsorship deal with Williams F1, does anyone think Porsche could lure them into putting their famous design decals on the Porsche LMP1??? That would be so hot!

    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    The Porsche 919 hybrid World Endurance Championship challenger is powered by a two-litre V4 engine, the German manufacturer has finally confirmed.

    Confirmation of the configuration of the petrol-powered component of the LMP1 racer's powertrain came at the same time as details of its hybrid systems were revealed.

    It had previously only been announced that the car, which first ran in June last year, was powered by petrol and was turbocharged.

    Porsche LMP1 technical director Alex Hitzinger explained that a vee had been chosen over an in-line configuration for reasons of weight-saving and packaging.

    "In a car like this, you want the engine to be a structural part," he said.

    "If you would go for an in-line four you would have to have some kind of spaceframe around [the engine] and that is obviously additional weight and complexity."

    Porsche has also confirmed that the energy-storage system for the 919's hybrid systems is a lithium ion battery pack.

    Hitzinger said this offered the best compromise between energy density and power density, respectively the amount of energy that can be stored and the rate at which it can be stored and discharged.

    "For the given requirements, it is the lightest," he explained.

    Porsche revealed that it is planning to run in the highest category of hybrid power discharge, eight megajoules per lap of Le Mans.

    The exhaust-driven energy-retrieval system developed by Porsche is distinct from that used by Audi and in Formula 1.

    Rather than running off the turbocharger, the motor-generator unit on the Porsche is driven by a separate turbine in the exhaust system.

    Porsche continued testing with the 919 in Bahrain last week.

    This week's AUTOSPORT magazine - available in shops and online from Thursday February 20 - features an exclusive interview with Mark Webber on his move to Porsche's LMP1 programme

    The V4 Turbo engine makes around 500 to 550 hp and the electric motors contribute to 250 to 300 hp.
    The team has driven 1040 Km.
    Not sure google translated this right but this last bit of info is scary; they reckon they are around 10 seconds too slow to be competitive!!! Are they serious?

    Any one speak German can tell me if it's right?
