As the car manufacturer has said, it is working all-out with its partner Penske on the development of the new LMDh prototype and collaborating closely with the chassis manufacturer Multimatic. The hypercar is all-set to go for an intensive testing phase in January 2022 to ensure that the company is optimally prepared for its 2023 competition debut.

At Le Mans race, there are two separate classes within the hypercar tier of competition. The First one is LMH where the competing cars have to be specifically manufactured under the Le Mans hypercar technical regulations. These are claimed to have plenty of space for creativity and allow front axle hybrid systems.

The second one is LMDh, where Porsche will compete. As per FIA rules, in this LMDh segment, entrants can purchase the race car's chassis from an approved list of suppliers including Dallara, Multimatic, Ligier or Oreca. The sponsor teams provide critical components such as the internal combustion engine, body, hybrid system in order to help the competition teams to keep down costs, while still developing the drivetrain and aerodynamic technology.
