Porsche’s run of innovation will be on display at the Geneva Motor Show as the German maker is showing off its 919 Hybrid sports car and the 911 RSR at the show.
The 919 will participate in the LMP1 category of the sports car World Endurance Championship (WEC) in 2014, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
With the new efficiency-based regulations of the WEC calling for hybrids, “the 919 Hybrid can therefore be regarded as a research laboratory for the technology of future production vehicles,” Porsche said.
The racing theme for the German maker will be expanded in Geneva with the 911 RSR, which also participate in all eight WEC races in eight countries across four continents. In addition, the 911 RSR will race in the North American TUDOR United Sports Car Championship where it began the motorsports season with a victory in the Rolex 24 At Daytona, the company said.
