Here’s How They Moved The Porsche 919 Hybrid LMP1
The Reliable trucked pulled up around 7:15pm. Once the car was off the truck, we knew it would be a long night.
Ground clearance was the name of the game when it came to moving this German beast. Porsche probably never pictured a Jeep as a tow car either.
The hybrid race car was taken to the 2nd floor of the museum, where it’s currently on display.
After a few hour of head scratching, the Porsche was ready to be unwrapped. This might as well have been Christmas.
Once the protective wrap of off the race car, they realized they’re were not out of the woods yet. The Porsche 919 still had to be rolled off its platform and put in place.
By 10:15pm the Le Mans racer was tucked in and put to bed. It will be at the Petersen Automotive Museum on display until Saturday. After that, it heads straight to Pebble Beach where it hopefully will be placed on the ground floor.
