  11. The Kid says This is more like it! Looks like Porsche should get cracking on the successor to the 918! AutoWeek HYPERCARS, SUPERCARS' CLASS TO REPLACE LMP1 AT LE MANS FOR 2020 Each manufacturer or constructor will build their own chassis for new class JUNE 15, 2018 The next generation of car that will fight for outright victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans will have the look of hypercars and super sportscars. A class to be introduced for the 2020-21 World Endurance Championship calls for purebred racing prototypes that manufacturers will be able to style after their road-going machinery. The idea is that car will look like "hypercars, supercars, luxury GTs or concept cars," according to Richard Mille, president of the FIA's endurance commission. Unlike the Daytona Prototype international machinery that races in the IMSA SportsCar Championship, each manufacturer or constructor will build their own chassis. The new cars will incorporate hybrid technology, although at a lower level of sophistication and power than in the current LMP1 class of the WEC. The cars will have less downforce and be heavier by 110 kilograms than the present generation of LMP1s, but an extra 200 bhp from their internal combustion engines means that they will achieve similar lap times to the current P1s. The target is for them to hit 3 minutes, 20 seconds in qualifying at Le Mans, which is five seconds slower than pole position for this weekend's race. The rule makers, the FIA and the Automobile Club de l'Ouest, will equate the performance of what could be a range of diverse-looking cars by setting maximum downforce and drag levels for the cars. This will also help to reduce costs to as little as 25 percent of current levels by limiting development costs. The introduction of active aerodynamics will also play a part in the cost reduction plan. It will enable the rule-makers to limit each manufacturer to one aerodynamic configuration for the six-hour WEC races and Le Mans. Manufacturers developing energy-retrieval technology, which will be limited to a front-axle kinetic system, will have to make it available to other marques and constructors. Each will have to supply a minimum number of teams, which has yet to be determined. FIA president Jean Todt said: "The new regulations are the result of hard work between members of the FIA, ACO, manufacturers and teams. This will provide endurance racing with a long-term, stable platform while continuing to offer a cost-effective stage to showcase future technologies." Six manufacturers have been actively involved in the rule-making process: Toyota, Ford, Aston Martin, Ferrari and McLaren. Porsche has been an observer in the process. The final rules should be drafted in time to be signed off before the end of the year.
