Considering production of the Porsche 918 Spyder recently wrapped up, it seems likely that at some time in the future, the German marque will release another halo hypercar.
As such a car could be several years away, it’s impossible to say just what shape it will take, particularly due to the changing nature of high-performance vehicles and the rise of all-electric powertrains.
In creating his 919 road car, Kataoka has drawn on inspiration from the 918 and 919 racer and opted for a mid-engine layout. At the front, headlights reminiscent of those from the 919 are featured as are bulging front wheel arches and a set of aerodynamically-efficient wheels.
Like the 918, the car includes a low-slung cabin with a central driving position, just like the McLaren F1.
The rear end is arguably the most appealing element with a large rear wing seamlessly integrated into the wheel arches. Taillights then stretch up the uprights of the wing in a similar vein to the 2015 Honda Civic Type R Concept.
