Porsche 919 Hybrid Debuts In US : News

For a brand-new racing prototype, the new Porsche 919 Hybrid hasn't performed too shabbily -- it took third place at the 6 Hours of Silverstone and fourth place at the World Endurance Championship race in Spa earlier this year. And though American fans were denied the chance to see the LMP1 car race at Sebring, you'll still have an opportunity to see the car in person before it takes on the competition at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

According to John Olman of, the 919 Hybrid -- along with the Le Mans GT class-winning Porsche 911 RSR -- will join a field of classic cars at the upcoming Ault Park Concours d'Elegance in Cincinnati. You can be the first of your friends to take an up-close look at the car on Sunday, June 8.

The Porsche 919 Hybrid isn't just another racing prototype (not that Le Mans prototypes are dime-a-dozen or anything). It's a vehicle that may reignite Porsche's tradition of Le Mans dominance, upsetting Audi's four-year streak in the process.
