Having been on the WEC podium twice this season, Vanthoor will be hoping to continue his streak at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. He took class victory at the landmark race in 2018 alongside Christensen and Estre and was previously a Porsche factory IMSA driver.

A dream accomplished

Vanthoor’s Porsche journey began in GT racing, but he says he had been “dreaming of this opportunity to drive in Hypercars for a long time. 

To be able to do that with Porsche is, I think, the best place you can be.” His sage advice to newcomers? "If you put in the effort and the work, things will come your way sooner or later.”

Where values are indicated as ranges, they do not refer to a single, specific vehicle and are not part of the offered product range. They are only for the purposes of comparison between different vehicle types. Additional equipment and accessories (add-on parts, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. These factors, in addition to weather, traffic conditions and driving behaviour, can influence the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions, range and performance values of a vehicle.
