Porsche presented three interesting design concepts to the world. Porsche 919 Street.
The Porsche 919 Hybrid is a very successful endurance racer in the German company, winning at least 33 races, three constructors’ championships and three driver’s championships. With 919 Street, Porsche transformed the design and powertrain technology of racing cars into something that can (theoretically) drive on the street.

Porsche 919 Street was created with a 1:1 scale clay model, and its design immediately reminiscent of the 919 Hybrid. At the front, it has a pair of headlights and a short hood, contrasting with two protruding wheel arches. Like the LMP1 racing car, the cab is located very forward and includes a wrap-around windshield and small side windows. A unique set of wheels was also designed for the concept.
Similar to the 919 Hybrid is the roof line and the shape of the large shark fin. However, despite the huge rear wing of the car, the 919 Street has subtle wings that connect the two rear waists and is equipped with LED light bars across its entire width. There are also two vertical LED light bars, which can also double as aerodynamic elements. Porsche’s wild 919 street also includes a large diffuser and two exhaust pipes that extend directly from the hood.
Speaking of the power system, Porsche envisions that 919 Street will use the same hybrid power system as the racing car, which consists of a 2.0-liter turbocharged V4 and an energy recovery system. It also has the same carbon fiber hard shell, size and wheelbase as a racing car.
