One race that runs twice around the clock. A marathon for both drivers and cars. The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the toughest and most high-profile sports-car race in the world. With 16 overall victories,
24 hours is 86,400 seconds. But it’s much more than that. Above all, it’s an infinite number of moments. Little episodes. Big successes. The whole range of human emotions coalesces in the fascination that surrounds Le Mans, year after year. Told by those who have experienced it again and again over the years.Read more
Racing directors tête-à-tête. A verbal lead-up to Le Mans with Fritz Enzinger and Hartmut Kristen. One is responsible for the 919 Hybrid, the other for the 911 RSR. Twenty-four responses to the challenge.Read more
What looks like a colossal video game—
Endurance racing stands for fighting and nail-biting, tears, cheers, and sweat. That’s what makes the drivers heroes. But it’s not just the people who become legends. Cars do, too.Read more
The numerical progression in their names is not a coincidence—the 918 Spyder and the 919 Hybrid have a lot in common. The high-end road-going sports car heads out onto the terrain of the LMP1 racing car for a foretaste of the 24-hour race in Le Mans with factory driver Marc Lieb.Read more
A very special summit: Four Le Mans winners at one table. The span of forty years between the victories in 1970 and 2010 offers up plenty to talk about, from technology and tactics, feeling and danger, to exhilaration and sporting achievement.Read more
The Weissach Development Center is where LMP and GT racing cars are born. Technical specialists in the pits make the final adjustments. Drivers then push the cars to the limits. This is a race-car driver’s dream. And a huge responsibility. For six men with a 919 Hybrid. And six men with a 911 RSR.Read more
On June 14, there will be 56 cars starting at Le Mans in four classes;
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
