2011 Porsche RSR GT3

I would do bad things to drive this car..

Read the details by clicking on this thingy (this is an experiment, lets see how it works)

Porsche revealed their new take on the most successful GT race car in the history of anything. The 2011 GT3 RSR was shown of at the "Night of Champions" party held at the R&D center in Weissach to march the end of the 2010 Motorsport season.

Apparently there has been a lot of priority to new aerodynamics on both the front and read as well as new suspension kinematics and of course the engine.

The 4.0 Liter, flat-6 boxer engine has now been tuned to pump 455 HP (335kW) and 247 ft-lbs (335 Nm) at 7,800 RPMs. This has been done by messing around with computer crap, exhaust and intake housing.

More noticeable are modifications to the front. A new front lip improves downforce on the front end. Underneath those massive fenders, the front tires have been widened an additional inch; leaving massive 12" wide tires. All that has been done to get rid of the understeering tendency in the ass-backwards car. Also at the front end, the lights have been given shiney new LED's.  The rear end also sports a new rear fairing and different rear wing.
