The Porsche 911 is possibly one of the most delightfully stubborn cars ever. Porsche has retained the 911's rear-engine layout since it evolved from the KdF-Wagens back in the 1930s. As much as I love an ass-engine, there are times when it may not be the best solution, and now even Porsche seems to agree, at least on their new GT racer.
The 911 RSR is a GTE and GTLM class racer, and is Porsche’s premier racecar based on one of their production cars—in this case, the 911.
It sounds like a turbo motor (as per the leading class cars) as well.
The video footage is very much worth watching and hearing!
I'm glad Porsche are indicating to stay in contention, but still a little surprised that the rules allow the block to be moved this much without it appearing in a road car in that configuration as well.
