Porsche has released another batch of images of its LMP1 competitor preparing for its debut season in 2014. This isn't the first we've seen of the new car, as June saw four images of the new racer undergoing testing. Where those images looked merely like someone taking pics during the test, the 11 new images seen above have all the hallmarks of highly polished PR shots.

That aside, the camo-covered cars still provide another look at what the new LMP1 car will look like when it arrives next season. The taillights follow the example set by Audi, by vertically mounting ultra-thin LEDs on the tips of the rear wing, while the LED headlights sport the four-prong look that Porsche has been pushing of late. Besides those two items, its difficult to make out many details due to the amount of camo.

Porsche's LMP1 effort will be focused on the FIA World Endurance Championship, which will see the revered brand return to the top flights of the 24 Hours Of Le Mans with F1 ace Mark Webber behind the wheel. As we've mentioned before, the German brand has set up a dedicated microsite that will cover its newest racer's progress.

      I just wonder what's going to be powering it.A naturally aspirated high revving V8? Maybe for something in LMP2, but if you want to be competitive in LMP1 it seems you need to be diesel, hybrid, or both. Though where's the fun in using the same setup as its cousin the R18 E-Tron Quattro?

        Pretty sure if you are running LMP1 in 2014 you have to run some alternate powertrain besides a big honkin' engine.

        I'd speculate a flat six. Unique in the series and screams Porsche.

      PORSCHE: Do not let the office politics decide the winner. Mark: all for wheels on the ground old man. I know there are major league rules changes coming but this car still looks 10 years old.
