The Porsche 919 was billed as the most complex competition car the firm had ever built when it was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in early 2014. Built to the LMP1 technical regulations the car was designed with one purpose, to win Le Mans, something it achieved in 2015. Fitted with two hybrid systems the car was originally designed to run in the 8MJ category, but only ran at 6MJ in 2014.
