Porsche 2009 GT3 RSR

Friday, January 23, 2009


Porsche recently unveiled its latest GT2-class racing car, the GT3 RSR.

The GT3 RSR is powered by a rear mounted six cylinder engine with displacement now up to 4-liters to the 3.8-liter of last year. What is baffling is that last years car produced 465hp@8000 rpm but this years car puts out 450hp@7,800rpm, the difference is not much and it could be down to sacrificing power for reliability. Torque is the same as last year at 430Nm@7,250rpm.

The rev limiter kicks in at 9000, and Porsche says that the new car�s torque curve is better-optimized than the outgoing car�s.
