Porsche Motorsport has released this short clip of the 919 Hybrid undergoing testing for the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship season, including the 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans. Porsche has been absent from LMP1 for 16 years and is making sure the world knows they are coming back to win. We can’t wait to see the on-track action between the new Audi R18 e-tron quattro, Toyota TS040 and this new Porsche 919 Hybrid.
The 911 has been tapped as the everyday supercar for quite some time now, ever since the 1970s when the Turbo version of the Carrera upped the ante in terms of usable performance without the supercar price tag or stigma. The Turbo was soon split off into its own subgenre of 911, but the Carrera in its various forms has been the main bread winner for the 911 line for some time. There are eight Carrera variants currently, and right at the top of the heap is the model you see here – the Carrera 4S Cabriolet. Featuring 400 horsepower, all-wheel-drive, a 0-60 time of 4.1 seconds and a roof-to-roofless time of 13 seconds, it’s got near-supercar stats. And with our tester’s $150,750 sticker, a near-supercar price, too.
As is the usual case when one of the major auto shows rolls around on the calendar, the news for the week was completely dominated by the releases, unveilings and debuts at the Geneva Auto Show. Geneva, in particular, carries a certain cache about it, as not only does it engender lazy references to 1970’s rock music, but the city’s reputation for European luxury and prestige – not to mention Switzerland’s lack of presence in the automotive game – means that it is the auto show of choice for all the ultra-high-end hardware from the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini, makers of less-famous but no less bespoke or impressive high-end European exotica like Koenigsegg and Spyker, and those that just wish to rub some of the magic sparkle that Geneva has on themselves. This show is so popular that geneva hotels are booked months in advance, full of guests excited to get into the iconic car show.
