    While I'm sure the values of the vertical fin that run from the cockpit to the rear of the car are tremendous they sure make modern LMP cars unattractive. The car looks great from the front and rear but the profile is nasty. Hopefully once the cammo film is off it will look better? 


    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    Agreed. Unfortunately, the vertical fin is mandatory.1378310539660cray.gif

    In-Line 4 looks more and more likely.

    Also- lithium-ion battery system for energy storage.

    The smaller the engine = more room for the hybrid drive components......

    Yes, but at the cost of having these beautiful cars lugging around billboards on their backs.

    True, but more likely due to efficiency requirements for next year.

    Article is in Russian, but in short: External design of LMP1 car will be quite different from what we see now...

    Why camouflage something you are going to change anyway?yes

    I suspect it will evolve (as expected) rather than being completely different.


    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    The car will appear next year. There is a bunch of time to change everything except basic mechanicals. Engineer in this article says that the car is on stage of finalising of mechanics and developed revolutionary in terms of aero.

    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    Here are a couple of speculations for Porsche's LMP1 livery:

    http://www.andwerndesign.com/porsche-wec-2014/

     

    http://autosprint.corrieredellosport.it/2013/11/05/la-porsche-vestira-martini-a-le-mans-lo-scoop-di-autosprint/11483/ (this one is in Italian).

     

    Because France doesn't allow alcohol or tobacco advertising, the second one (Martini livery) is doubtful.  However, Martini, apparently, could circumvent this law by using their clothing brand to sponsor the team.

    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    Martini livery would be fantastic.

    Martini can leave stripes I believe. Anyway, it is highly doubtful that any of these versions will come true.

    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    The first one is out of the question (IMO) as the car drawn is not even a Porsche LMP1.


    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    True, but Porsche have even said that what they've first shown us is different from what we'll be seeing when it's finished.

    It is not a pretty car. (but then again , no LMP1 is) .The rules have made these cars look very ugly indeed. So sad.

    Not to mention make them sound horrible. Smiley


    Re: Porsche Back in Le Mans with LMP1 2014

    I like modern factory P1 cars and their sound too...

    How not to like that?

    I HATE the fin and the great big holes on the wheel arches. I understand the reasons, but aesthetically it is an utter abortion.
