Porsche 919 Hybrid images leaked

Porsche 919 Hybrid

Porsche will be officially unveiling its 919 Hybrid LMP1 challenger at Geneva in the next 24 hours, but as is the way these days images have already surfaced online.

We thought there might have been some Red Bull livery somewhere on there with the arrival of Mark Webber to the team. As yet that’s not the case.

Power for the 919 comes thanks to a 2.0 lite V4 petrol engine and a whole bunch of electric gubbins harvesting, storing and releasing power. It will make its race debut at the 6 Hours of Silverstone on 20 April.

Oh yeah, there’s also the new 911 RSR, which looks massive alongside the 919. We’ll bring you more when Porsche says we can.

Interesting how prototypes are getting smaller while the 911 gets fatter with every new model.

I hope that’s not the final livery though, that’s hideous and boring. They could do far worse than going into their own museum and taking some inspiration from the 911 GT1 which took their last outright win at Le Mans. The flowing curves of the livery are interesting and make you want to look at the car more, not less.

Also not surprised that there’s no Red Bull decals anywhere, pretty sure MW has left that team rather than being loaned to Porsche. If they were going to sponsor a WEC team I’d expect it to be a car in the GTE ranks, not a prototype.

I think he’s still a Red Bull athlete though, so expect he’ll carry some personal sponsorship. I wasn’t expecting it to be a Red Bull branded team, just a small decal somewhere.

But I guess Red Bull doesn’t really do it that way anymore.
