Sebring 12H - Porsche 911 RSR, Porsche GT Team (912): Laurens Vanthoor, Kevin Estre, Richard Lietz

The Porsche vehicles

The 911 RSR is a completely new development and is campaigned by the Porsche GT Team in both the IMSA SportsCar Championship and the Sports Car World Endurance Championship WEC. Depending on the size of the restrictor, the motor, which is now positioned in front of the rear axle, puts out around 375 kW (510 hp). The level of downforce and the aerodynamic efficiency were significantly improved. The 911 GT3 R, mounted with the new ultra-modern, four-litre, flat-six engine with direct fuel injection, was designed by Porsche for worldwide GT3 series on the basis of the 911 GT3 RS production sports car. The 911 GT3 Cup tackles the season with a newly-developed drive. Thanks to thoroughbred motorsport technology, the compact engine with direct fuel injection delivers a peak performance of 357 kW (485 hp).
