Porsche 992

It will be interesting to watch on your favorite video-sharing website a comparative between Porsche GT3 R Hybrid (2010) with the 992.2 GT3 RS hybrid version. The main reason is to analyze how this technology has been developing through the years.

Notes: 1) According to Porsche’s website, the Semper Vivus is the first hybrid car in the world. Nowadays, even it is not surprising, the Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo has redefined the again the definition of speed.

In the same way that the Porsche 911 GT1 was an inspiration for the Porsche Carrera GT (980), the 919’s design still presented in Porsche layout, for example, the facelift Porsche Macan.

2) Porsche has a vast experience to create and develop unforgettable engine’s sportscars, for example, the 2,8-litre Flat-six for the 959, V10 for Porsche Carrera GT (980) and the 4.6 L V8 and hybrid for Porsche 918.

It means that every time Porsche launches a limited edition, it has a new engine. For this reason, in my opinion, there two fronts to work.

First, use the 919-engine, the 2L turbocharged V4 configuration connected to an electric generator, the reason for that is the continuation of the heritage to transfer all the knowledge obtained in FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) to a new hypercar.

However, it is a controversial point, Porsche doesn’t participate in the Le Mans Prototype (LMP1) category anymore. The German company chose to be, in the next year, in Formula E. It is game-changing for the hybrid variation hypercar. I mean, the 919 Evo’s project comes to an end, and the future is going to represent by the Porsche Taycan and Formula E racing car, for example.
