The Porsche 911 recipe has not changed drastically in the last couple of years: Little bit of nip here. Tuck there. Increase in displacement here. Lighten up a couple of things there. Overall it has been the same recipe: Engine in the rear and rear wheel drive.
All of that has changed today with the unveiling of their new Porsche 911 RSR, a mid engined race car designed to compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship next year and the Le Mans 24 Hours. The 911 RSR’s first event will be at the American IMSA Weathertech Championship in the Daytona 24 Hours in January 2017.
Revealed at the 2016 Los Angeles auto show, with the help of Tennis champ, Maria Sharapova, and McDreamy and Race car driver, Patrick Dempsey, the Porsche 911 RSR will have a mid mounted 4.0 liter flat six producing up to 510 bhp.
