What If Porsche Made A 919 Hypercar For The Road?

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.

Nevertheless, Brazilian designer Guilerme Kataoka has decided to render such a car, based around the 919 Hybrid LMP1 race car.

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.
