Porsche 991 RSR
Porsche’s new 911 RSR has just finished its first race at the FIA World Endurance Championship in Silverstone, where it narrowly missed out on a podium position. In this video, the team talks about the preparation and testing that lead up to the season opener.

Larger than its predecessor, and with a lower centre of gravity and better weight distribution, the 991 RSR utilizes carbon fibre for its front and rear wheel arch extensions, doors, underbody, rear wing, and quick-release front lid and rear panel. The same 338 kW (460 hp) 4.0-litre unit that saw service in last year’s 911 GT3 RSR has been retained for the 991, with gears in the six-speed transmission being changed via flappy paddles on the steering wheel.
