We all know the significance of the Porsche 911 GT1 Straßenversion. It was essentially a road-legal Le Mans race car and commands a hefty price today. Its successors, the Carrera GT and the 918 Spyder never entered a race but are icons in their own right.
The 911 GT1 was built to GT1 regulations back in 1990s. The Straßenversion was a homologation special of which just 23 examples were built. At the end of last year, Porsche announced it was building a prototype to enter the new Le Mans Hypercar class and the latest rumors suggest that a road-legal version could be on cards.
While details of the rumored “GT1 hypercar” are hard to come by, we can get a hint of what the car might be like by looking into the regulations for the LMDh class.
According to the rules, cars of this class will use a hybrid powertrain with an approximate output of 670 hp and will weigh around 1000 kg.
If these rumors turn out to be true then, we might get a true successor to the iconic 911 GT1 Straßenversion.
