Porsche 918 RSR Race Car

The Porsche 918 RSR Race Car is a potential glimpse, which comes with 2 electric motors and a 500hp V8 from the “RS Spyder” LMP-2 car. Porsche will field the 918 Spyder at the 24 Hours of Nurburgring in 2011.

The Porsche 918 RSR Race Car will drop the electric motors, but will retain the KERs and 500 hp V8. Since GT1 regulated no more than 600 hp, Porsche may remove air-restrictors from the engine to boost the output to 600hp. It will top in the 200mph range and will reach 62mph in less than 3.0 seconds, possibly 2.8 seconds. The weight loss will comes from the loss of the batteries stripped interior and loss of amenities even more extensive use of carbon fiber and a reconstruction of body work, so the weight will be around 1,240 kilos, 2,730 lbs.

Porsche 918 RSR is based on the Porsche 918 Spyder concept, the pictures show a hardcore coupe, wearing some classic Porsche liveries, designed to compete in the GT1 class.  As the last post in my blog, the 918 Spyder concept featured a 368 kW (500 PS / 493 hp) V8 engine and three electric motors with a total of 160 kW (218 PS / 215 hp). Packing a combined 528 kW (718 PS / 708 hp), the Spyder sent power through a PDK dual-clutch gearbox (with an electric boost function) to an electric all-wheel drive system.
