So basically this 2017 spec car is the same car (ignoring some very minor changes) that will compete in 2018 and 2019, correct?"

I don't think it would make sense to create a page for "TS050 Mk III".

"So basically this 2017 spec car is the same car"

doesn't this apply on all toyota production cars in general ? because it reminds you of their fugly best selling car the rolla :)

I didn't know you had a grudge against Toyota as well, I though it was only Porsche.

I guess Porsche/Toyota = Germany/Japan = axis powers = all the same.

naaaah, i do like the por-shee killer from japan and i own a bavarian car which takes me to work.

so you're wrong about me hating on these two countries :)

i don't mind owning a por-shee, but there's a problem, their engines aren't reliable enough as they claim in their bs ads :)

What's the top speed of Toyota TS050 Hybrid?

A lot. Hard to tell. They would have to reduce wing to safe minimum, adjust the gearing, pump the tyres some more and test it somewhere like Nardo :D

Theoretically I think it can be pushed well past 350 kph.

Team Toyota are PISSED OFF and charged up this year... after that horrible Le Mans fiasco.

No. The best laps were. 1:37.304 for Toyota and 1:38.615 for Porsche.

Quite a difference but apparently you are only allowed 2 aero set ups throughout the year. So I guess Toyota are faster here but would suffer elsewhere like Spa for having too much downforce.

1:37 is serious fast
