4 bursts of GT power for Le Mans
This much can already be stated for certain: The myth of Le Mans will once again beguile the motorsport community in 2019. And
As was the case in the previous season, we will once again be entering four factory cars in the 24-hour race in the coming season. Our 510 bhp GT sports cars will boast the race numbers 91 to 94 and will all have top-class drivers at the wheel. The 91 will be driven by Gianmaria Bruni, Richard Lietz and Frédéric Makowiecki. The drivers in number 92 will be the defending champions Kévin Estre, Michael Christensen and Laurens Vanthoor. Patrick Pilet, Nick Tandy and Earl Bamber will take turns driving the car with race number 93. And the drivers taking the seat in the cockpit of our 911 RSR with the number 94 will be Sven Müller, Mathieu Jaminet and Dennis Olsen. We should also mention the customer teams which will again have a strong line-up in the GTE amateur class and can also expect to enjoy good prospects of success.
IMSA WeatherTech Championship
In the USA, we will be continuing our factory commitment and cooperation with the Core Autosport team. We will be entering two 911 RSRs in the IMSA WeatherTech Championship. Nick Tandy and Patrick Pilet will be driving the car with the race number 911. They will be supported by Frédéric Makowiecki during endurance races. At the wheel of the 912 car will be Earl Bamber and Laurens Vanthoor, who will be backed up by Mathieu Jaminet in the long races at Daytona, Sebring etc.

The sister car will be driven by Earl Bamber, Michael Christensen, Kévin Estre and Laurens Vanthoor.
Our mission continues. With this in mind, here’s to an exciting season in 2019!
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel 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 September 01, 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, irrespective of the testing method 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. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
