This season has been a very good one for Porsche in the World Endurance Championship (WEC) series. Of course the historic 24 Hours of Le Mans win is the biggest highlight of the year, but the famed endurance race is just the beginning.
The Porsche 919 Hybrid has been a huge success for the German performance car maker. The latest victory over Audi and Toyota in the top LMP1 class took place in Fuji this past weekend.
Last year Porsche began a mission to add to their record 16 victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Standing in their way was Audi and this year they looked to get to the top of the mountain.
The two VW Group owned brands also had to deal with Toyota and Nissan, but they would never truly challenge the German marquees. Of course a 24 hour endurance race takes a fast car as well as some luck. Going into the competition the Porsche 919 Hybrid was the favorite after qualifying in first, second and third.

Rennsport Reunion V is fast approaching. The gathering of Porsche racing machines at Laguna Seca is one of the few times that one can see these historic cars in action.

We all know that the Porsche 919 Hybrid is a very fast car that hopes to take down Audi at Le Mans this year. But just how fast does it look in person?
If you have watched Top Gear and have seen them put a star in a reasonably priced car, then you know that sometimes a fast run doesn’t look fast. Is this the case with the 919 or does it look as fast as it is when you watch it?
