2013 Porsche 911 RSR

2013 Porsche 911 RSR

Porsche has taken the covers off the new 2013 911 RSR, bringing forth a GT race car for the 2013 season’s World Endurance Championship (WEC) and the Le Mans 24 Hours. Based on the seventh generation of the iconic 911 sports car, the latest RSR features a wheelbase that’s grown by roughly four inches while a new wishbone front suspension has been implemented as well. The new RSR has gone through some significant weight reduction as well with the introduction of a lighter PDK-enabled six-speed gearbox, more evenly balanced weight distribution with the center of gravity being much lower, and heavy usage of carbon fiber throughout the vehicle. With this also being the 911’s 50th anniversary, the number 50 is visible on a few key parts of the car and can even be seen from a bird’s eye view.

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and 4S Coupe

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and 4S Coupe / Cabriolet

Porsche has officially unveiled the new all-wheel-drive 911 in four versions — the 911 Carrera 4 and 911 Carrera 4S, each as Coupé and Cabriolet. Their lightweight body design, suspension, engines and gearboxes are identical, the only modifications being related to the all-wheel-drive. The higher level of engine and performance actually leads to better fuel efficiencies with total savings for individual versions as much as 16 per cent. The all new models have a seven-speed manual gearbox standard with the German automaker’s PDK seven-speed gearbox available as an option. This is mated to a 350-hp 3.4 liter six-cylinder engine in the 911 Carrera 4 Coupe and Cabriolet while the Carrera 4S Coupe and 4S Cabriolet is fitted with a 3.8 liter boxer engine that dishes out 400 hp.

The most distinct feature of the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and 4S, compared to the two-wheel drive 911’s, is the wider rear section as the rear wheel housings each extend further outward by 22m while the tires are each ten millimeters wider. The traditional red light band that connects the two taillights on the 911 Carrera C4 has also taken on a new form.

Look for all four models to make their debut at the 2012 Paris International Auto Show on September 29th.

With this video, we get to see how the brand and its 911 have evolved over the years. “Our identity is the 911. This is especially true, even in the 21st century. Instantly recognisable and originally engineered for the racetrack, it continues to stir the emotions today, just as it did in 1963.” Video below.
