Porsche 918 RSR

The most significant car of 2011 Detroit Motor Show without a doubt is the Porsche 918 RSR Racing Lab.

As the racing version of the 918 Spyder revealed last year in Geneva, the 918 RSR is powered by same hybrid system Porsche has tested extensively with the GT3 R Hybrid. So it’s extremely reliable and in the RSR’s case, extremely powerful.

This car combines the power with fuel efficiency, and that is the future of motorsport right here!

Porsche 918 RSR is powered by 563 hp V8 accompanied by two electric motors on the two front wheels each contributing 75 kW, for a combined output of 767 hp.

The design of this race car is obviously based on the 918 Spyder but it’s get unique traditional touches established by classic Porsche long-distance race cars such as the 908 long-tale coupé (1969) and the 917 short-tail coupé (1971). Some of the cool features of it include visible fan wheel between the ram air intake tubes and a rear spoiler with RS Spyder dimensions.
