    Engine revs up to 9,000 rpm

    Porsche has officially unveiled the 919 Hybrid this week in Geneva, thus signaling Porsche's return at Le Mans.
    The Porsche 919 is a LMP1 contender packing a hybrid system consisting of a newly developed single-turbo V4 2.0-liter direct-injection gasoline engine working with a front axle-mounted electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack. The V4 engine revs up to 9,000 rpm and sends its power to the rear wheels while the electric component provides drive to the front wheels so the 919 Hybrid offers temporary AWD.

    I would love to see a Cadillac prototype for LeMans.

    Yes..but i have a feeling we won't see Cadillac racing in this league anytime soon. It would be intereting to see v6 twin turbo in LMP1 class. I think that Roush Yates Ford based v6 TT is competing in LMP2..so seeing Cadillac with V6 TT+hybrid would be interesting. Maybe GM should offer the engine first (under Cadillac name) to customers..Something like Honda does

    Le Mans prototype endurance racing is ruled by the FIA dictatorship. I don't think GM and the FIA have a friendly relationship with each other. The new United SportsCar Championship series will race a new merged prototype class that Cadillac could develop a entry for. However, this prototype class is nothing compared to LMP1 class. The FIA LMP1 cars, like the Audi R18, absolutely destroyed the old American Le Mans Series prototypes when they raced at Sebring. GM won't ever race in FIA sanctioned events. But, how crazy would it be if GM announced an entry to compete in Formula One? When pigs fly.

    There was rumors about Porsche using 4 cylinder engines in some of their future models. Could it be they are preparing ground for marketing of their future vehicles? If they win Lemans they could use it as a reference in future. something like "You don't need xy number of cylinder to have a best performance, etc".
