About 700hp for an about 910kg* car is 0.77hp/liter,

it's a huge power/mass rate, only f1 and indycar at 1.5bar turbo pressure have a better rate in the whole 4 wheels motorsport (if we don't include dragster racing).

You still don't understand that achive >800hp from a racing engine is quite an easy task... you basically just need to increase boost, rev higher and burn more fuel (or get a turbodiesel V12 peugeot).

The tricky part of the scheme is to make this reliable and economically sustainable.
Repeat... just think about f1 ICE's... designed and developed by the finest engineers and are however less powerful and have a shorter lifespan... each unit costs about 10mln or even more. Just think how expensive could be a 850hp - >6000km endurance bound unit....
if toyota currently spends about 80mlns for WEC, that budget would be barely enough for 4 ICE's

*(830kg + 80kg driver weight)
I'm not sure what Toyota is spending now but I doubt it's anywhere near the 75-80 million dollars when Porsche and Audi were around. They have been using the TS050 for 3 seasons now with the current evolution going back to 2017, at least the hd package.
