The German brand unveiled something special on the first day of the Rennsport Reunion 7 at Laguna Seca: the limited edition, only for racetracks 911 GT3 R Rennsport. The high-performance construction has a seven-figure price tag and a number of upgrades that are so extreme that the vehicle is not cool in relation to the competition.
The 911 GT3 R Rennsport is the successor of the Moderna 935, which was an update of the legendary racing car of the same name from the 1970s. the updated vehicle is the work of the Style Porsche team and is based on the current generation 992 911 GT3 R, but shares only two body parts with the hood and roof of the car. Everything else is new.
The resulting speed machine has a more strongly shaped body, larger air intakes and, above all, a huge rear wing like that of the 935/77 Brumos. The 911 GTR R Rennsport also has no road approval, so its side mirrors have been eliminated and replaced by a digital camera system. The whole thing is completed by a set of 18-inch BBS wheels with a central lock, wrapped with Michelin racing tires, developed exclusively for the model.
The interior also received some subtle adjustments. The single-seat cabin has a reduced racing car quality, but there are still many Moderna features, such as monitors for monitoring the vehicle status and checking the virtual mirrors, as well as the carbon fiber trim. The car is also equipped with a rigid cage and other safety features that comply with FIA standards. In order to keep the weight down, Porsche does not use an air conditioning system, the cooling comes from the ventilated seat.
In the engine compartment you will find the same 4.2-liter suction six-cylinder engine that powers the standard 911 GT3 R.Because he does not have to comply with the racing regulations, the mill, coupled to a sequential six-speed gearbox that directs the power to the rear axle, now pumps 611 hp instead of 557 hp and red lines at 9,000 rpm. Full performance specifications were not specified, but Porsche says that the car should be about 12 miles per hour faster than the 911 GT3 R. Other mechanical features include a power-tuned suspension and suspension system, five-way adjustable racing dampers and an aluminum monoblock racing system from AP.
