Second-Generation 2015 Porsche 919 Hybrid Racer Revealed

Written By:

The famous German marque, Porsche has just revealed its second-generation 919 Hybrid racer for the 2015 racing season. The company claims that the new car is a ‘comprehensive evolution' of the first 919 Hybrid, with testing to have begun in Abu Dhabi on January 18, 2015.

Porsche made a much-heralded return to Le Mans last year, but ended up with disappointing results despite threatening a podium finish. The German racing team did, however, manage to secure a victory in the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship season, but finished in third place amongst three competing manufacturers.

The second generation of Porsche's important racer is expected to retain the same drivetrain as the 2014 car, comprising a 2-litre V4 turbocharged petrol engine, with an electric motor driving the two front wheels and two energy recovery systems as well.
