Porsche is set to field four factory GTE-Pro entries in the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the third consecutive year, following confirmation of its continued large-scale assault on the French endurance classic.

Revealed during Saturday evening’s Porsche ‘Night of Champions’ awards ceremony, the German manufacturer will enter four new-generation Porsche 911 RSRs, with the Manthey-run FIA World Endurance Championship squad again being joined by the CORE autosport-operated IMSA team for the assault.

Drivers for the Le Mans effort have yet to be announced beyond the full-season lineups in each team.

The WEC-entered No. 91 Porsche will feature Gianmaria Bruni and Richard Lietz, with defending GTE World Champions Michael Christensen and Kevin Estre in the No. 92 entry.

Porsche’s IMSA lineups, led by Nick Tandy, Fred Makowiecki, Earl Bamber and Laurens Vanthoor, are expected to feature, as well as the team’s Michelin Endurance Cup drivers Matt Campbell and Mathieu Jaminet.
