Mission accomplished – Porsche wins manufacturers’ world championship with the 919 Hybrid

(6/11/2016)

Mission accomplished – Porsche wins manufacturers’ world championship with the 919 Hybrid

Title decision in the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC)

Porsche became the World Champions again. The sports car brand from Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen with the innovative Le Mans Prototype Porsche 919 Hybrid secured the manufacturers’ title in the FIA World Endurance Championship one race before the season’s finale. At the six-hour race in Shanghai this Sunday the driver trios of Timo Bernhard (DE)/Brendon Hartley (NZ)/Mark Webber (AU) and Romain Dumas (FR)/Neel Jani (CH)/Marc Lieb (DE) finished first and fourth to earn Porsche 38 points. Having now scored 301 points in total, Audi (222) and Toyota (207) cannot now catch Porsche at the last round in Bahrain on November 19.

Michael Steiner, board member for research and development of Porsche AG, wit-nessed the title win on site and said: “The second manufacturers’ world champion-ship title for Porsche is another confirmation of the 919 Hybrid’s brave concept. The Weissach developed prototype joins other important Porsche race cars that were al-so ahead of their times, such as the 718 RS, 904, 917 or 956. They all wrote motor-sport history and significantly fired the road car development. This also goes for the 919 Hybrid. I’m proud on the entire team.”

Fritz Enzinger, Vice President LMP1, added: “This big success was only possible thanks to a great team effort. Mechanics, engineers and drivers and many more peo-ple behind the scenes were fighting hard for this, and have now been rewarded for the second time after 2015. This doesn’t prove only the 919 Hybrid’s potential, but also the excellence of the team. I want to thank everybody from my heart.”

For the futuristic Porsche 919 Hybrid it is another chapter in a story of success. In 2014 the class one Le Mans prototype (LMP1) debuted with a unique powertrain concept. Since then Porsche has won the Le Mans 24-hour race twice, to take over-all victory number 17 in 2015 and 18 in 2016. In 2015, which was the second season for the young team, Porsche also won the manufacturers’ world championship. Last year’s drivers’ title went to Bernhard/Hartley/Webber in a nerve wracking finale in Bahrain. With one race to go, the current championship leaders are this year’s Le Mans winners Dumas/Jani/Lieb. In total, from 24 races, the Porsche 919 Hybrid has 13 race wins and 15 pole positions to its tally.

While the Porsche Team earns laurels on race tracks, the most important successes are achieved in the Porsche Research and Development Center in Weissach near Stuttgart. There the 919 Hybrid was created in close collaboration with the road car development. It delivers a system power of over 900 HP (662 kW). Its combustion engine is a ground breaking downsizing motor. The compact two-litre V4 petrol en-gine is turbocharged and powers the rear axle with almost 500 HP (368 kW). Two different energy recovery systems – using brake energy from the front axle and ex-haust energy – feed a lithium ion battery storage. From there, on demand, an electro motor takes the energy to power the front axle with an additional over 400 HP (294 kW).

With the design of the 919’s hybrid systems, the race department did pioneering work. Especially with regards to high voltage technology, the 919 works as an experimental laboratory for the voltage level of future electric road going sports cars. This way the knowledge gained on race tracks allowed the product cars’ developers to introduce the four-door concept study Mission E with 800 Volt technology. The first purely electric driven road going sports car from Porsche will go into production within the current decade.

HOME TRIP FOR TOYOTA GAZOO RACING

(10/10/2016)

HOME TRIP FOR TOYOTA GAZOO RACING

TOYOTA GAZOO Racing competes on home ground this weekend when the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) makes its annual trip to Japan for the 6 Hours of Fuji.

The seventh round of the 2016 season is held at the TOYOTA-owned Fuji Speedway, located just a few kilometres from the Higashi-Fuji Technical Centre, where the 1,000hp TOYOTA HYBRID System - Racing is developed and built. TOYOTA approaches its home race in positive mood following another podium finish and close fight for victory in the last race, at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

Stéphane Sarrazin, Mike Conway and Kamui Kobayashi in the #6 TS050 HYBRID were part of a three-way fight for victory that day, and will be looking to reclaim second place in the drivers’ World Championship at Fuji. Anthony Davidson, Sébastien Buemi and Kazuki Nakajima have endured an unfortunate season so far, but travel to Fuji aiming to challenge for victory in their #5 TS050 HYBRID.

TOYOTA has a very strong record on home ground, having won three consecutive races at Fuji Speedway from 2012-2014 making it the team’s most successful circuit on the WEC calendar. After podium finishes in four of the six races so far this season, a return to winning ways in Japan is top of the agenda this weekend.

Although the current WEC series has raced at Fuji since 2012, the circuit is legendary in sportscar circles, having held the first 1000km of Fuji in 1967. Iconic TOYOTA cars, such as the 2000GT and TOYOTA 7, proved their performance by winning on the famed circuit close to Mount Fuji. Fuji Speedway itself, located around 110km from central Tokyo, has evolved significantly since its opening in 1965, when a banked oval-style section began at the first corner and made up half of the track length until a redesign in the mid-1970s.

Nowadays, the circuit’s most striking characteristic is the long main straight which, at 1,475m, is the second longest on the WEC calendar after the Mulsanne Straight at Le Mans. Combined with a particularly tight and twisty final sector of the lap, this gives engineers and drivers a challenge to find the best compromise on car set-up.

Preparations for the race will begin on Friday with two 90-minute practice sessions, while the grid order is determined on Saturday with a short qualifying. The race will be held entirely in daylight, beginning at 11am local time.

Hybrid version of the Panamera and the 911 racing car to debut in Paris

(28/9/2016)

Hybrid version of the Panamera and the 911 racing car to debut in Paris

Porsche press conference live from the Paris Motor Show

Two worlds, two global debuts: At the Paris Motor Show, Porsche is celebrating the debut of two sports cars with completely different characters – the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and a 911 racing car. The new Gran Turismo combines a performance-oriented hybrid drive and sustainable e-mobility with dynamic sportiness and luxurious driving comfort. By contrast, the new edition of the world’s best-selling racing car, the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, is reserved exclusively for the race track. The new Panamera range as a whole and the Macan Turbo equipped with performance package will also be unveiled to the public in Paris for the first time at the Paris Motor Show.

The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid delivers a system power of 340 kW (462 hp) thanks to the combination of a 2.9-litre V6 petrol engine with an output of 243 kW (330 hp) and a 100-kW electric motor. The maximum torque of the vehicle is 700 Nm with an electric range of 50 kilometres.

Both global debuts will be presented at the Porsche stand in hall 4, stand 212, at the Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles.

A live broadcast of the Porsche press conference (taking place on September 29, starting at 14:15 h CEST/12:15 pm GMT) in German and English is available online in the Porsche Newsroom (www.newsroom.porsche.de) and via satellite. The embed code can be found at www.porsche.gomexlive.com.

For its 30th anniversary Autoworld is treating itself to a new zone and placing more than 12 supercars “… in the Spotlight”

(8/9/2016)

For its 30th anniversary 
Autoworld is treating itself to a new zone 
and placing more than 12 supercars “… in the Spotlight”

Autoworld is 30 years old!
While giving prominence to the location’s history this is an anniversary not only looking to the future but also extensively harking back to the motorcar (r)evolution of the last 30 years! For the occasion the museum is treating itself to a new permanent area – namely the “Media Room”.
But over and above all Autoworld remains a car museum, and to celebrate its 30th anniversary, “in the Spotlight “ it will display “30 Years of Supercars”. Autoworld has brought together more than twelve exclusive cars that were the stuff of dreams for numerous fans over the last thirty years.

The “Media Room”, a new zone to celebrate 30 years in style
To mark this anniversary Autoworld has just created a new zone on the museum’s first floor: the “Media Room”, which will be open to the public as from the 15th September 2016.

In a decidedly contemporary environment, even futuristic, contrasting with the 135 year-old historic building, this “Media Room” is comprised out of three distinct areas fitted with screens where the seated visitors will have the opportunity to view specially created informative and interactive films played in a loop.

The following themes will be tackled:
- The little known history of the building where Autoworld established itself and which was where the first Car and Cycle Shows (who still remembers?) were organised; as also the overall history of the Cinquantenaire site;
- The history of the Autoworld museum since its creation in 1986;
- The evolution of the motorcar over the course of the last 30 years

In the main space, fitted out with some thirty seats, the films will be viewed on a large screen in four languages (French, Dutch, English and German).

Depending upon the museum’s activities and temporary exhibitions, themed videos might also be added to the current films.

A selection of historical documents, photographs, posters and miscellaneous objects recalling the museum’s history will also be exhibited, supplemented with a selection of noteworthy motorcars of the last three decades.

From the 15th September through to the 23rd October 2016 - 30 Years of Supercars… in the Spotlight
If on the one hand the Oldtimers are acknowledged to be a sound investment since many years, as yet this is not the case for these “new classics”, namely the Youngtimers. Apart from the younger generation who are full of enthusiasm for these cars linked to their memories of youth and adolescence. The Youngtimers are but a mere 20 to 30 years old. They date back to the ‘80s and the beginning of the ‘90s and have an ever increasing number of followers. Far more affordable than the Oldtimers, they also boast numerous other advantages such as the availability of spare parts, relatively low maintenance costs and an inexpensive insurance. As from the 15th September and through to the 23rd October 2016, the Youngtimers will be back on show at Autoworld next to the models already exhibited in the museum’s permanent collection.

And as cherry on the cake for its 30th anniversary, Autoworld went in search for some fifteen supercars that were all the rage over these last 30 years. Exclusive, exotic, sporty machines … such as a Mclaren P1 GTR , a Bugatti Veyron, a Porsche 918, a Ferrari F40, a Honda NSX, a Jaguar XJ220, a Lamborghini Countach… and other mythical vehicles that have left their mark these last few years.

An exhibition definitely not to be missed under any pretext for the aficionados of exceptional coachwork!
