Porsche 911 RSR
Porsche has pulled the covers off their new Porsche 911 RSR which will make its debut in January at the Daytona 24. Of all the modifications to the latest RSR, the biggest change is the location of the engine. Yes, the latest 911 racing machine features its flat-six power plant in the middle ahead of the rear axle instead of behind it.
Most Porsche enthusiasts will be quick to point out that this is not the first factory mid-engined 911. The legendary 911 GT1 had the same layout and it proved a successful competition machine. Porsche is hoping that the remodeled 911 RSR will have similar success in the World Endurance Championship (WEC) LM-GTE Class.
