Michelin company headquartered in Clermont-Ferrand played a role in the development of the new Porsche 919 Hybrid, by designing special tires for the class prototype LMP1 (Le Mans Prototype 1). Michelin tires were developed on the simulator for all partners and enhanced LMP1 Hybrid Porsche 919. Tests conducted by the technical team of both parties.

Talking about this car, chairman of Porsche AG Matthias Muller says that is an important thing to test the resilience of a technology on the track. Moreover, in the endurance test, not the fastest car will win, but the car is the most powerful and economical.

The hybrid system has a function that is both familiar with the 918 Spyder. Here, the generator on the front axle using braking phase to transform kinetic energy into electrical energy.

While Lithium-ion battery serves as the energy storage medium. At this energy the driver requires the electric motor will drive the front axle. This will make the 919 Hybrid is temporarily become all-wheel drive vehicles.
