Porsche is doing a great job ain Le Mans and this is ready to be seen these days during Los Angeles Motor Show. The Stuttgart-based company unveiled the new the all new 911 RSR, the car that will help Porsche tackle the 2017 racing season.

The most important feature will be the flat-six unit positioned in front of the rear axle. The four-litre, extremely light aggregate features direct fuel injection as well as a rigid valve drive. The new 911 RSR will make its debut at the Daytona 24-hour race in January 2017.

For the first time, a Porsche GT race car features assistance systems: the new 911 RSR is equipped with a radar-supported collision warning system, the so-called “Collision Avoid System”. 

Even in the dark, the faster LMP prototypes are detected early enough and misunderstandings can be avoided. A new safety cage concept and a new, rigidly-mounted racing seat enhance driver safety. With the seat fixed to the chassis, the pedalry can now been moved and adjusted to fit the driver.

Entire elements of the carbon-fibre body can be exchanged completely in a very short time thanks to quick-release fasteners. Moreover, changes to the suspension setup can be performed much more quickly and easily.

In the 2017 season, the factory is expected to run the new 911 RSR at 19 outings which equates to more than 140 hours of racing. With two factory-entries, Porsche will tackle the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) including the 24 Hours of Le Mans as well as the American IMSA Weathertech Championship.
