Porsche warms up engines for the 24 Hours of Daytona with this nostalgia video of its legendary 963. The model is preparing for its first race at the Rolex 24 at Daytona, and for this the racing legend Hurley Haywood reviews the history of racing of prototypes and what the launch of a new race car means for Porsche. A video that you will surely like.

As you know, the new 963 hybrid prototype from Porsche Penske Motorsport has already competed, and the 2023 season of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship kicked off on January 20 with the so-called “Roar Before the 24”. Although the first tests of the Porsche 963 were carried out in January 2022 in Weissach and, since then, the prototype has been developed on different circuits in Europe and North America.

“With the new Porsche 963 we are once again fighting for absolute victory in the most important endurance events in the world. Our Porsche Penske Motorsport team as well as our drivers and specialists at the Weissach Development Center have done absolutely everything they can to make the 963 a fast and reliable concept car. We are curious to see how the Daytona race will unfold, not only in the new top GTP class but also in the GTD classes with the new Porsche 911 GT3 R,” said Thomas Laudenbach, Vice President of Porsche Motorsport.

“We set ourselves the goal of reaching 30,000 kilometers in tests and we have achieved it. During the “Roar” at Daytona we will continue to make adjustments to the cars to arrive at the race in the best condition. We have worked hard to put ourselves in the best possible position before the start of the IMSA championship”, said Urs Kuratle, Competition Director of the LMDh Project at Porsche Motorsport. The next January 28 starts the race.
