With the 911 RSR’s predecessor we introduced a change to the concept 911. For the first time, a 911 based race car used a flipped drivetrain. Since this revolution, we have been able to gather countless experiences on tens of thousands of kilometres of racing. Insights that we have applied to the development of the new 911 RSR. The expansion of the boxer engine displacement to 4.2 litres was just the beginning. Countless other improvements – all put through their paces– are hidden under the carbon-fiber reinforced body. Aerodynamically optimized, this lightweight body not only improves the driveability of the 911 RSR even further, it was also designed for quick changeability and thus maximizes efficiency in long-distance races. The six-speed sequential constant-mesh transmission, weight-optimized for our latest generation, features increased stiffness and durability. In addition, it's extremely short shifting times have been shortened even further. Also shortened: the exhaust system. Now opening to the side, its susceptibility to damage has been reduced greatly. Another element which proves: the overall 911 RSR concept stands for maximum consistency and endurance.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 1 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emissions. As of 1 September 2018 the WLTP replaced the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel/electricity consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 1 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, regardless of the type approval process used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will, therefore, be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats, etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics and, in addition to weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
