I am not sure on the exact math, but that does mean that the V6 makes more power from the same amount of fuel than the V8 did.
More efficient - which can then be converted to power or lower consumption.

as far I can remember TS040 3.7L V8 was a 0.3L increased RV8K, it improved its efficiency just because toyota decided to decrease power output, making it rev lower than 3.4L... it was ok for 2014 season, but for 2015 season porsche introduced a new and more efficent and powerful V4 2L turbo that made the NA toyota 3.7L terribly obsolete

It was a combination of Porsche using a battery hybrid too. The super capacitor was limited compared to a battery especially in terms of storage.

yeah that year porsche 919 was insanely OP, better chassis/aero, 8MJ hybrid and basically the only ICE among the 3 manufacturers able to reach 600hp due better turbo-petrol efficiency. Toyota ICE was too weak and yeah batteries were the real deal.

I think they had the only car in the 8mj class too? I know they were doing 8mj, but I don't think Toyota was 8mj until 2016. Audi were never going to be that high.

yes 2015 919 was 8MJ, toyota 6MJ, audi 4MJ.

BTW porsche overkilled 2015 season, winning 6 races on 8. Audi won just at silverstone and spa while toyota scored just 2 podiums.
Remember buemi and davidson interview during 2015LM where they said they were lacking of power and torque from the ICE and about their car, despite the lack of pace, wasn't that bad at all, difference was 2015 TS040 was just an evolution of 2014 model, while 2015 919 was basically a fresh new car from scratch.

I mean Toyota’s upgrade. The only teams need something up their sleeve to prevent them winning more

Good article on Toyota's hypercar progress at DSC. Goes on to talk about things about the closeness of the project in terms of making it in time for next season at Silverstone.

Is it right, that at the 2020 LM24 the TS050 will not be so much handicapped/ they will have a fix cushion in laptime like they did a year ago? (when I remember it well, the TS050 was guaranteed a 0,500 sec laptime advantage over the competition)? thanks for the answer.

What dou you think about the plan of Toyota to attack the LM track record at the farewell race for TS050? Do you think that the 3:10 is realistic without any BoP or EOT? Will they have the opportunity to secure a clear track for the record? Would like to see the beast without any leashes for the last time. Just for the record books. Who would be your driver to attempt?

Driver has to be Kamui Kobayashi for sure!

OMG what a Beast Kamui! I can remember the year when he drove for Ferrari in GTE PRO. He told for the television: "I enjoy racing, but these cars are soo slow" ! Maan, who can dare to say that a Ferrari is slow?

Kobayashi or Conway imo. They are probably the fastest guys on the squad. I think Conway holds the race lap record at Le Mans. There's no built in advantage for Toyota this year (in terms of eot lap time). But they won't be handicapped at 930kg. They will be 874 or 880kg. And have their full 8mj per lap. I think maybe 3:12s are possible, but < 3:10 is out of reach unless they run unrestricted (which I don't think will be allowed, officially).
