Porsche congratulates the LMP1 team on the 19th overall victory at the
24 Hours of Le Mans. For the third time in a row, the 919 Hybrid has proven that performance and efficiency combine to uncompromising effect—a technological insight echoed in our current E-Performance range. Another step forward on our never-ending mission to build the sports car of the future.
This past Sunday, Porsche achieved its 19th overall Le Mans victory at the 85th running of the legendary 24-hour race. Drivers Earl Bamber, Timo Bernhard, and Brendon Hartley brought home the #2 Porsche 919 Hybrid from 56th place to 1st place after a race full of drama. Here in the US, over 50 dealers, as well as the PECs, hosted some amazing Le Mans themed events to share this excitement and passion with our customers and enthusiasts.
To commemorate this monumental “hat trick”, PCNA will be featuring the following video loaded to our YouTube page capturing the spirit of this year's race. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJRBiMUdrWE
