Porsche 911 RSR

We have good news coming from Porsche. The carmaker developed a new GT race car for the Le Mans 24 Hours and the World Endurance Championship. We had the opportunity to see it for the first time this last week. Now, the specialists are looking for the best time to unveil their Mission 2014 web site which celebrates the first factory team to compete for an overall win. On the Porsche official web site the specialists present a trip back into history. Fans all over the world can experience the greatest moments of the company, will have the opportunity to hear interviews with the racing legends, see historic picture galleries and rear the stories behind our greatest racing victories. Every week, the carmaker will post new content so that fans can return to the Mission 2014. To be more precise, the first episode will contain the overall victories at Le Mans in 1971 and 1976 through the eyes of Richard Atwood, the First Le Mans winner with Porsche.

The 2013 911 RSR race car has great aerodynamics and a lightweight design. You should know that the car will not run in a North America series fro this year. It has a new wishbone front suspension that replaces the McPherson struts. The six gears are selected through paddles on the steering wheel. Under the hood it hides a 4.0-liter 6-cylinder boxer engine capable of generating 460 horsepower. The center of gravity is now lower in comparison to its predecessor. All windows are made of particularly thin and light polycarbonate. To contribute to the weight reduction, the engineers have offered the lithium-ion battery. The front end, front lid and also the rear panel are fitted with quick release systems and can be replaced within seconds. For the moment, this is all the info available, but do not go very far.
