Porsche’s 2017 High Downforce Aero, First Pictures

First race this weekend at Nürburgring

The early bird caught the worm this morning at the Nürburgring with Porsche’s high downforce front bodywork briefly spotted on the #2 919 Hybrid in its garage. This the first outing of Porsche’s second permitted bodywork iteration after the factory team opted to field its Le Mans bodykit at Silverstone and Spa as well of course at the Le Mans 24 Hours (seen below at Le Mans).

The new kit features substantially smaller lighting units as well as radically different diveplanes.

Perhaps notable was that the team was not shielding the front of the car with screens, Porsche currently under a suspended three minute stop/go race penalty after two such infringements this season.
