The most intense pressure of all:
the desire to excel.
When it comes to winning and when thinking about the future, we consider even the tiniest detail: every part of the vehicle, every single screw, and every second of every lap. A lightweight construction is clearly imperative. At 1,245 kg, the 911 RSR adheres precisely to the minimum weight specified by FIA World Endurance Championship regulations.
From the very start, the vehicle was designed to be suitable for long-distance racing. A new body structure with a longer wheelbase and new intake air ducting provides a platform for pure power that is just waiting to be unleashed. That is supplied by a water-cooled, horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine with a four-litre capacity. In figures this translates as 346 kW (approx. 470 hp) – limited by a restrictor. Output is transferred to the rear axle by a new six-speed sequential
To control the 911 RSR’s undeniable forward thrust, the brake system has six-piston monobloc fixed brake calipers at the front and four-piston units at the rear. Featuring a double-wishbone suspension at the front and multi-link rear axle, adjustable shock absorbers and anti-roll bars, the chassis superbly handles any manoeuvre – on straights as well as chicanes.
The axle geometry further optimises aerodynamics for even greater efficiency. Less drag coupled with increased downforce reduces the tendency to understeer and allows higher speeds when cornering.
From the development process onwards, another aspect has also received particular attention: safety. Our engineers’ uncompromising approach on this extreme interpretation of sportiness is evident from the weld-in roll cage, the overhauled FT3 safety tank and the optimised fire extinguishing system. Clear evidence of the importance that
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
