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.
