Porsche 911 RSR, or how to lose the essence of the 911 ahead of the engine to the rear axle

Porsche 911 RSR

The Porsche 911 RSR, the German brand has just presented at the Salon of Los Angeles, not only is the 911 of competition over `gordo that we have seen in the past few years, but it is also the first Porsche 911 that brings the engine in a position that is not the nature of this model: on the front of the rear axle.

The boxer engine six-cylinder and four-liter displacement, will not located where it has always been in the Porsche 911 racing and street, but a little bit later, as things like those rumors from a few weeks ago. Do you have gone mad at Porsche? Will this be a preview of a Porsche 911 of the street with the engine front? Let's see it.

Because this car is developed from scratch with aspects as critical as the suspension, the body structure, the concept of aerodynamic, as well as the engine and transmission. The new position of the engine enables the 911 RSR to wear a prominent diffuser back never seen to date in a 911.

Depending on the size of the flange of the intake, the engine's maximum torque arrives to offer about 510 horsepower, and the box sequential six-speed with magnesium housing is that which is responsible for transmitting all that power to the rear axle.

Technology to prevent collisions...in a race car?

In addition to the position of the engine a little usual, another outstanding aspect of the new Porsche 911 RSR is that incorporation of a system called Collision Avoid System which, as its name suggests, helps to avoid accidents on the track, something more usual than we can think of races like the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Will be a Porsche 911 of the street with the motor advance

The launch of this model of competition, the first in which the German brand has jumped to the bullfighter the main feature of the Porsche 911, makes us think that maybe this is the beginning of a new generation of Porsche 911 where the engine is no longer on the hook behind the rear axle.

It is clear that if they do in a race car, would be easier to do so in a model of street, although this would have to do without the tiny squares post of the that have always made gala the 911. If we consider that the 911 is more radical, as the GT3 and GT3 RS lack of such spaces later to make room for the roll bars, does not seem a far-fetched idea that this solution applies to models street.

Time to time, we will see if this solution applies only and exclusively to the 911 racing, or if someday we'll see how Porsche brings forward another of its traditions, the motor 911 is located behind the rear axle.
