Another milestone on the 919 Tribute Tour! We are referring to 29th June 2018. The 919 Hybrid Evo was on the starting grid at the Nürburgring to write motorsport history once again. The mission was to set a new record on the 20-kilometre Nordschleife circuit. The driver: Timo Bernhard. The result: 5:19.55 minutes.
Like almost no other racing circuit, the Nürburgring together with its legendary Nordschleife places supreme demands on materials and the skill of the driver. The challenging route weaving its way through the densely wooded and winding terrain of the Volcanic Eifel region is unforgiving and always presents a real challenge even for consummate professionals.
Records have been set, heroes have been celebrated and legends have been born at the Nürburgring for as long as anyone can remember. The 919 Hybrid boasts an impressive track record of victories at the Eifel circuit which is so steeped in history. When the World Endurance Championship made its first appearance in Germany in 2015, the two
The 919 Tribute Tour continues – be part of it! The next stop is the 25 Hour VW Fun Cup at Spa-Franchorchamps from 6th to 8th July, 2018.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
