Porsche Reveals Mid-Engined 911 RSR

Porsche Reveals Mid-Engined 911 RSR

The enormous rear wing is borrowed from the Porsche 919 Hybrid LMP1 race auto.

The 2017 Porsche 911 RSR is allegedly a completely new development.

Here's something interesting. The new RSR is equipped with a radar-supported collision warning system, the so-called "Collision Avoid System". With the new RSR, Porsche has essentially turned the 911 into a mid-engined vehicle. The engine is mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox.

"How do you like our new and latest fighting machine?"

The new 911 RSR's serviceability has also been significantly improved. However, the most mental and fundamental change for this 911 is that its engine is mounted amidships. Walliser added that the body structure, engine, transmission, suspension and aerodynamic concept have all been designed from scratch.

Congressional GOP pledges swift action on Trump's agenda
But in a state where Trump won 63 percent of the vote , Republicans gained a staggering 18 seats in Kentucky's lower chamber. If Trump can get this cut passed with Ryan's help, an essential healing process within the GOP will succeed.

For the first time, a Porsche GT race vehicle features state-of-the-art assistance systems: the new 911 RSR is equipped with a radar-supported collision warning system, the so-called "Collision Avoid System". Within the cabin, the driver's seat is now rigidly mounted to the chassis, while an adjustable pedal box which moves fore and aft takes over for adapting to drivers of different heights. With great success: In 1998 the 911 GT1 achieved the 16th overall victory for Porsche at the Le Mans 24-hour race. If a mishap does occur, the body panels are modular and secured via quick-release fasteners for rapid exchange in the pit. The basic colours remain white, red and black.

Porsche is no doubt hoping the mid-engined 911 RSR is its GT championship comeback kid - and follows the 2015/16 LMP1 class wins of the 919 Hybrid - when its two factory entries start racing in 2017. Porsche will campaign the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) as well as the American IMSA Weathertech Championship.

Porsche's Marco Ujhasi, who heads up the GT programme, added: "We're very well prepared for this". The test cars have covered more than 35,000 test kilometres on racetracks in Europe and North America.

The suspension consists of double wishbones at both ends, with four-way vibration dampers and twin coil springs. Stopping power is provided by 390mm ventilated steel discs at the front and smaller 355mm solid discs at the back.

Rear axle: One piece forged light alloy wheels, 13Jx18 offset 37 with center-lock nut; Michelin slick 31/71-18. There's also a new multi-function steering wheel, LED headlights and tail-lights and an air conditioning system - as per GT racing regulations.
