Porsche confirms LMP1 program through 2018


Porsche continues racing into the future with the 919 Hybrid: The board of Porsche AG has decided to extend the Le Mans prototype program until the end of the 2018 season. With its ground-breaking concept - a downsized turbo engine and powerful energy recovery systems, combined with an extreme lightweight design - the racing car with approximately 1000 combined horespower serves as a research laboratory for future sports car technology.

Matthias Mueller, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, explained, "Motorsport is an important part of Porsche’s brand identity - but not an end in itself. Racing must help the technology of future road going sports cars. It was the revolutionary efficiency regulations that convinced us to return to top-level motorsport for the 2014 season. That we have managed to take the crown jewel of endurance racing in only our second year, with a one-two result in Le Mans in 2015 with our highly innovative and complex 919, is an outstanding testimony to the people in the Weissach research and development center. The overall competition bears fruit and we see further potential for future synergy between the racing and road car programs. This is why we have extended the program."
