Porsche Goes All Nostalgic with Silverstone

mission 2014 600x337 at Porsche Goes All Nostalgic with Silverstone

This year, as you know, Porsche is making a comeback to the LMP1 class endurance racing, and they will be racing at the 2014 Le Mans. It is obviously a very big deal, given the glorious history of the brand, not just in this class, but in the motorsport world as a whole. So you’d forgive them for getting all nostalgic and annoying with this Mission 2014 video, which is a tribute to Silverstone.

This video also serves to welcome the new 919 Hybrid, Porsche’s weapon to take on Audi and Toyota at this year’s Le Mans and WEC.
