Porsche is pleased to announce the entry of a third 919 Hybrid for the 24-hour race in Le Mans on June 13/14 in 2015. As a dress rehearsal for the event, the car will be entered in the six-hour race in Spa-Francorchamps.
A total of 151,500 customers opted for a car from the sports car manufacturer in Stuttgart. Porsche thus increased its deliveries from January to October 2014 by 14 percent compared to the same period last year.
Entering the two 919 Hybrids at the overseas races of the FIA World Endurance Championship does not just pose new sporting challenges for the Porsche Team. The logistics are a race of their own for the LMP1 newcomers.
With no less than three such models, Porsche is now the leading manufacturer of plug-in hybrid vehicles. Journalists have tested the full array of vehicles using this innovative drive technology. Here is their résumé.
