The 2019 24 Hours of Le Mans on Twitter for Porsche Fans

Just like last year, Porsche has amassed a full grid of ten GTE-classed 911 RSR in an attempt to take on the best comers from Ferrari, Ford, BMW, Corvette, and Aston Martin. Because this is a transition season, this weekend’s Le Mans is technically inside the same « super season » as last year’s Le Mans, and will decide a number of FIA WEC championships. Porsche have again recruited four cars in an attempt to defend its LM GTE Pro class victory in 2018, with four factory-entered mid-engine 911 RSRs. The GTE Am category features six cars from four different teams. Both categories feature heavily stacked lineups and incredibly talented drivers. Both categories are really anyone’s game, and you’ll have to watch to find out if Porsche can do it again. Porsche has won three times in the World Endurance Championship GTE Pro class from seven rounds this season, including Le Mans 2018. Astonishingly, the Dempsey-Proton #77 has blitzed the competition winning five of seven rounds, with Team Project 1 grabbing one.

For long endurance races like this one, Twitter can be an invaluable source of information. Not only can Twitter provide an up-to-the-minute view of what’s happening in the race, it can connect you with intimate details and insight from the drivers and teams themselves.  In fact, we know of no other way to stay as closely and accurately informed about what’s happening in the Porsche world before, during and after the race (even if you were at the event itself) than through the « Twittersphere ». You just need to know who to follow.

The 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans On Twitter For Porsche Fans

Porsche has not had this level of representation in the GT ranks at Le Mans in years. A full grid of ten cars from the German marque will take on the best comers from Ferrari, Ford, BMW, Corvette, and Aston Martin. Without an LMP1 effort to focus on, Porsche have diverted their resources to winning the LM GTE Pro class, with four factory-entered mid-engine 911 RSRs. In last year’s equipment, as is tradition, the GTE Am category features six cars from four different teams (Proton Competition are running three cars themselves). Both categories feature heavily stacked lineups and incredibly talented drivers. Both categories are really anyone’s game, and you’ll have to watch to find out if Porsche can do it again. The US-based #93 IMSA team won the 12 hours of Sebring with their 911 RSR, so maybe they’re on an endurance roll! Then again, the #94 IMSA team won the most recent IMSA round at Mid Ohio.

The 2018 Mobil 1 Twelve Hours Of Sebring On Twitter For Porsche Fans

After a lackluster finish at the 24 Hours of Daytona back in January, where Porsche suffered the indignity of not having a car on any class podium for the first time ever, the motorsport team has to come out swinging at Sebring if they have any hope of regaining the points they need for the championship later this year. Porsche was within a shot of winning the GTLM class at Sebring last year, were it not for an unlucky tire puncture with 30 minutes to go in the final stint. They know how to strategize this race, and they know how to race this track. For now, we’ll just have to cross our fingers and hope they’re in place for the 12th hour.

Porsche ‘tweete’ la 918 Spyder de série

Tweet 918 Spyder Porsche tweete la 918 Spyder de sérieA Goodwood Porsche avait amené ce que la firme de Stuttgart présentait encore comme une version de pré-série de sa supercar découverte, la 918 Spyder. Cette fois-ci Porsche présente la photo de cet exemplaire comme la première de la 918 Spyder de série.

C’est à l’occasion de la « Motor Week » de Monterey qui se déroule jusqu’au 18 août que Porsche a présenté cet exemplaire de la 918 Spyder. Cette version de série possède a priori des différences avec les versions vues jusqu’à présent. Visuellement c’est plutôt mince. On pourra toutefois noter la poignée des portières qui est désormais verticale et « masquée » (mais il doit y avoir d’autres subtilités).

La 918 Spyder est, dans la mouvance des supercars actuelles, hybride. Elle allie un moteur thermique V8 central de 4,6 litres de cylindrées développant 612 chevaux à deux moteurs électriques permettant à la puissance de culminer à 887 chevaux. 340 km/h en pointe, 0 à 100 km/h en 2,8 secondes cette Porsche devrait être dans le peloton de tête des tonnerres mécaniques.
