First roll-out of the 2015 Porsche 919 Hybrid in Weissach

Today the first roll-out of the second generation of Porsche’s Le Mans Prototype took place on the company’s test track in Weissach. Porsche works driver Marc Lieb (Germany) was at the wheel of the 2015 Porsche 919 Hybrid. Thereby the Porsche team could end the motorsport season 2014 with the successful debut in the WEC as scheduled.

Alexander Hitzinger, Technical Director LMP1, said: “The roll-out of a new race car is always a milestone, and anticipated with great excitement by everyone involved. It was our target to get the Porsche 919 Hybrid for the 2015 season on its wheels before Christmas, and now we have achieved this.”
The first meaningful test with the new race car, which has been significantly developed compared to its 2014 predecessor, is scheduled to take place from January 18 to 22 in Abu Dhabi.
