    • Porsche thinking 918 successor? 917 Concept honors 50 years of the 917 race car

      The next round of supercars (yeah, yeah, 'hypercars' for some of you) is going to be absolutely insane. Obviously electric motors will be a part of the package and the 918 Spyder already showed us Porsche can do incredible things with hybrid technology.


      There is no 917 confirmed but Porsche released more photos of their 917 Concept seemingly toying with the media and gauging responses.

      The concept essentially celebrates 50 years of the legendary 917 race car.

      Does this hint at a new supercar? Maybe, maybe not. It does look pretty damn cool either way.

A total of 14 exhibits – including ten 917 models which alone have a combined PS output of 7,795 – will be on display. The Porsche Museum will present a 917 concept study to the public for the first time as homage to the first Le Mans victory of 1970. The red-and-white show car was designed by a small team of designers and engineers, though with the entry of Porsche into the LMP1 category of he FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), this model remained as purely a concept study.
