The hybrid antecedent will be assimilated by a Porsche 911 RSR during a Porsche muster in Geneva as good as during all 8 races of a WEC, whose deteriorate prominence will be a 24 hours of Le Mans. Also during Geneva, a 911 Targa is creation a European debut.

Porsche 919 Hybrid:

Matthias Müller, Chairman of Porsche AG: “Crucial in a growth of a Le Mans antecedent were a newly combined and insubordinate racing manners for this category as they describe to appetite efficiency. In 2014, it will not be a fastest automobile that wins a World Endurance Championship array and a 24 hours of Le Mans, rather it will be a automobile that goes a farthest with a tangible volume of energy. And it is precisely this plea that carmakers contingency overcome. The 919 Hybrid is a fastest mobile investigate laboratory and a many formidable competition automobile that Porsche has ever built.”

The high potency of a Porsche 919 Hybrid is a outcome of a offset altogether concept. From a explosion engine to a appetite liberation systems, cessation and chassis, aerodynamics and motorist ergonomics, a sum of a components form an impossibly fit territory for limit performance. The expostulate complement is shaped on a 4- cylinder gasoline engine that is compress and lightweight. The 2.0 liter V-engine is a constructional member of a chassis, and reaches a limit engine speed of approximately 9,000 rpm. It facilities approach injection, a singular turbocharger and thermodynamic liberation capabilities. The compress territory outputs around 500 hp.

Two opposite appetite liberation systems strap appetite to feed a batteries and yield power. The initial complement is a innovative liberation of thermal appetite by an electric generator powered by empty gases. The second hybrid complement is a engine on a front spindle utilizing stop recuperation to modify kinetic appetite into electric energy. The electric appetite is afterwards stored in water-cooled lithium-ion battery packs and when a motorist needs a stored power, a front engine drives a dual front wheels by a differential during acceleration. This gives a Porsche 919 Hybrid a proxy all-wheel expostulate system, since a gasoline engine leads appetite to a back wheels, only like a 918 Spyder.

A new Porsche group of over 200 employees was shaped to rise and exercise a growth core in Weissach.

We have a biggest honour for a lead a competitors have in racing experience. Our pattern in a initial year is simple: to finish races and be competitive.”

Romain Dumas (France), Neel Jani (Switzerland) and Marc Lieb (Germany) will share pushing duties in a Porsche 919 Hybrid with array 14. Car array 20 will be driven by Timo Bernhard (Germany), Brendon Hartley (New Zealand) and Mark Webber (Australia).

Porsche 911 RSR:

“Intelligent Performance” is created in confidant letters on both a 919 Hybrid and 911 RSR. The seventh era of a 911 has consistently benefited directly from motorsport developments. The back circle expostulate 911 RSR facilities a lightweight pattern and polished aerodynamics for softened path times and softened fuel efficiency.

In a initial coming during a 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans a Porsche 911 RSR placed initial and second in a GT-Class. The GT racer from Weissach has been serve softened in many aspects for 2014 and it started a 2014 deteriorate with a category feat during a Rolex 24 At Daytona. The 911 RSR is raced in a new TUDOR United Sports Car Championship as good as being partial of a WEC World Sportscar Championship series, including a 24 Hours of Le Mans. The second Porsche bureau team, Porsche Team Manthey, will contest with dual 911 RSR competition cars in WEC that starts in April. Drivers Jörg Bergmeister (Germany), Marco Holzer (Germany), Frédéric Makowiecki (France) and Patrick Pilet (France) will contest in 7 universe championship events with any eventuality being 6 hour continuation race.
