But from there it'll race at all the major endurance events world-wide, the biggest being the 24 Hours of Le Mans itself.

The power comes from a 4.6-liter, twin-turbocharged engine, itself derived from the 918 Spyder.

Expect 680 total horsepower from that engine and the hybrid system.

The livery is a throwback to some of Porsche's earlier prototype racers in the 1980s.
