you should reconsider that option. I read somewhere that wearing socks is supposed to increase pleasure. tried it one time but I can't remember if it was true. Definitely didn't make it worse.

Porsche peppering erryone for the imminent hybrid or full electric GT3 with this car:



Quote:
Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) accepts Porsche’s application as a Formula E manufacturer.
Porsche will be serving as a manufacturer for Formula E racing. Porsche’s Weissach factory team can continue to pursue the development of its own electric powertrain, which is due for homologation in 2019. As announced at the end of July 2017, Porsche plans to be among those competing in the sixth season of the global electric racing series at the end of 2019.

“Over the past few years, the FIA and Alejandro Agag have done a fantastic job,” says Porsche’s Fritz Enzinger, who, as Vice President, is in charge of the Formula E Program. “It is due to this development that we will be able to compete on the race track against many of the world’s largest car manufacturers.”
As with the successful Le Mans Prototype 919 Hybrid project, Andreas Seidl will be responsible for the technical development and the execution of the Formula E program. “The possibilities and performance of electric cars have been a central topic at Porsche for quite a while,” Seidl points out. “The deeper our engineers get into the topic, the more fascinating the solutions become. We can’t wait to receive our first vehicle in early 2019 and to test our own powertrain in it. The Gen2 racer, which was unveiled by Formula E in Geneva in early March, is very well executed.”

Formula E will provide the chassis as well as the battery. All powertrain components, however, are the competitors’ own developments. This enables Porsche to find bespoke solutions for key technologies such as the electric motor, inverter, brake-by-wire system, transmission, differential, driveshafts, monocoque and the suspension components attached to the rear-axle, as well as the cooling system and ECU. The energy efficiency of the powertrain not only plays a decisive role in a competition attracting many of the world’s most renowned car manufacturers, but it is also central to the development of road-going electric vehicles.

Porsche’s entry into Formula E in 2019 will coincide with the market launch of the production version of the concept study Mission E. This vehicle, the first all-electric Porsche, will be the most sports-focussed and technologically-advanced car in its class. Porsche will invest more than six billion Euros in electric mobility before the end of 2022.

Every time I'm reminded of all of these manufacturers getting involved in Formula-E, I just think...

Well, now this could get interesting...sub-6 minute 'Ring time anyone??


https://jalopnik.com/give-us-a-ring-...-ca-1825852694

The Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo is giving racing fans what we’ve always wanted: pure, unrestricted speed. Since it is not racing the 919 anymore, Porsche dropped the series-mandated restrictions and are on a warpath to dominate lap records across the globe. Yet we all know that only one lap time really matters: the Nürburgring. No Nürburgring, no care. Just do it already, Porsche.
Porsche is teasing us hard, too, as it is going to bring both the 919 Hybrid Evo and the 956C to the Nürburgring 24 Hours weekend for demonstration laps. Both will run a lap behind the safety car before the green flag is dropped, as Porsche themselves note “no stopwatches are required.”

This is the worst tease ever, as the 956C isn’t just another Le Mans-winning Porsche—it’s the current Nürburgring all-time lap record holder. Stefan Bellof’s time of 6:11.13 in the 956C has remained untouched since 1983.

Bellof died shortly afterwards in 1985, and the idea of besting his 202 kph-average lap was a bit taboo for years, according to WhichCar. It’s been 35 years now, though, so it is time.


Making matters worse is a report from WhichCar saying that yes, Porsche is going to send that 919 Hybrid Evo on a flying timed Nürburgring lap. Citing an unnamed source at Porsche, WhichCar said that the 919 Hybrid Evo will tackle the track records at Brands Hatch and Laguna Seca first, and then show up to run a flying lap of the Nürburgring.

and here we go: over a minute faster than the GT2RS past the last course marshall, but then slows down and pulls into pits at end of day. This video gives a good breakdown of reasoning that a sub 5 minute lap is possible and very plausible.
