The Porsche 919 Street Is The Concept We Wish Made It To Production
To say that the Porsche 919 Hybrid was a pretty capable car is quite the understatement given its sophisticated inner makeup, coming with a two-liter turbocharged V4 engine powering its rear axle while an electric motor handles the front (via Porsche). This gives the Porsche 919 Hybrid a maximum power output of over 900-horsepower. Its full capabilities were even toned down so the 919 could adhere to certain race regulations. However, when Porsche unlocked its potential through its Evo variant, the 919 was said to outperform a Formula One car, with an average speed of about 152mph and reaching a top speed of about 223mph.
The Porsche 919 Street specs were based on the technology of its LMP1 race-car equivalent, with the company even giving it the same dimensions as the Le Mans racer. Of course, there are a couple of key differences that separate its design from the 919 Hybrid racing icon, such as having a 918 Spyder-like elevated exhaust position, and swapping the 919 Hybrid’s huge rear wing for a massive roof fin and a much smaller rear lip spoiler (Motor1). Given that the Porsche 919 Street concept car has its racing counterpart’s engine and carbon fiber inner chassis, it can basically put any casual driver inside the cockpit of a literal competition-winning professional sports car.
