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.
