The Porsche 919 Hybrid marked Porsche’s return to prototype racing after a successful program with the RS Spyder ended in 2011. The 919 made its debut at the World Endurance Championship (WEC) 6 Hours of Silverstone in 2014 and ultimately finished the season championship in third. In 2015, Porsche would return to its winning ways by earning victory at the 24-Hours of Le Mans and the overall season championship as well. The Porsche 919 would go on to win the Le Mans 24 and the WEC championship in 2016 and 2017 as well.
Over its four year competitive run in WEC, many world class drivers put the car through the paces – Formula 1 driver Mark Webber and several well-known Porsche factory drivers including Romain Dumas, Marc Lieb, Timo Bernhard and Nick Tandy to name a few. With 17 WEC race victories and three season championships, the Porsche 919 is regarded as one of the most successful LMP1 cars.
