2014 Geneva Motor Show: Porsche 919 Hybrid

The Porsche 919 Hybrid has been officially presented to the public during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, as the model in question represents the company’s return to Le Mans.

The new Porsche 919 Hybrid has been tested for no less than 2,000 hours in the wind tunnel, ahead of its participation at Le Mans, this June, where it will be driven by Mark Webber, Timo Bernhard, Neel Jani and Romain Dumas, along with works drivers Brendon Hartley and Marc Lieb. The Porsche 919 Hybrid is coming with a 2.0 liter V4 single turbo newly developed engine, which is working together with a front axle mounted electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack.

The V4 petrol burner can be revved up to 9,000 rpm and it’s sending power to the rear wheels, while the electric motor is powering the front wheels, offering the 919 Hybrid with a temporary all-wheel drive. Two energy recovery systems, the thermal energy recovery incorporated in the exhaust system, along with the brake energy recuperation, have been fitted onto the racer. The 919 Hybrid has been created in order to fully respect all LMP1 regulations, including its total length and its curb weight.
