Renderings show what the next 911 RSR could look like.
Now that the new 992-generation Porsche 911 is upon us, the real festivities can begin. And by "festivities,” we mean "derivatives” – and not the least of them, you can bet, will be a new 911 RSR.
Fortunately we don't have to wait for Zuffenhausen to roll out this particular version, because Monholo Oumar has been kind enough to work it up for us, in multiple liveries, and share the results on Behance. And if the actual racer looks half this good, the boys from Weissach could have one heck of a GT racer on their hands for next season.
The letters RSR are what Porsche has traditionally applied to the top racing version of the 911 – the kind you'd find competing in the GTE/GTLM class at Le Mans, the FIA World Endurance Championship, and the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
The current model packs a 4.0-liter boxer six, moved forwards to a nearly mid-engined setup. It drives 510 horsepower to the rear wheels through a six-speed sequential gearbox to make for one of the most hardcore performance machines Porsche has ever made. Since the demise of the 919 Hybrid LMP1 program, it's been elevated to the top model in the highly decorated manufacturer's racing stable.
The new model will have one heck of a legacy to uphold: the outgoing 911 RSR won its class in the 24 Hours of Le Mans last year, and is currently leading for points in the FIA WEC GTE standings. And even if it has to comply with the same regulations as the outgoing model, you can bet the next one, based on the new 992, will be even faster around the track.
