The German based automaker Porsche has recently pulled the wraps off the 2014 911 RSR, which will be driven in the World Endurance Championship.
According to the car manufacturer, the 2014 Porsche 911 RSR is actually based on the seventh generation of the regular 911 and the model is coming with some carbon fiber components, like the rear wing, center console, doors and dashboard. The windows have been made from polycarbonate and the battery is a lithium-ion, in order to keep weight as low as possible.
“The new 911 RSR is characterised by consequent lightweight design and sophisticated aerodynamics. The exceptional vehicle styling honours a very special anniversary: From a bird’s eye perspective, the numbers 50 and 911 are visible. These stand for 50 years of the Porsche 911. The Porsche AG Team Manthey works squad exclusively fields two Porsche 911 RSR in the 2013 season”, as the automaker is saying in its official press release.
The 2014 Porsche 911 RSR is powered by a 4.0 liter six-cylinder boxer engine, which is good for 460 HP (338 kW), mated to a six-speed sequential transmission with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. Two units of the 911 RSR will be driven this year by Timo Bernhard, Patrick Pilet, Joerg Bergmeister, Richard Lietz, Romain Dumas and Marc Lieb.
