Live From Detroit: The Racing Lab Porsche 918 RSR Revealed

Los Angeles Porsche dealers got up early to watch a live broadcast form the 2011 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. The big announcement; a 767 bhp hybrid super car badged the 918 RSR Racing Lab.

Nobody expected this. There was no advance notice. There were no empty promises. There is no turning back: with the 911 GT3 R Hybrid, the future of motorsports began for Porsche in 2010. ‘Year Zero’ of the hybrid age on the racetrack. After several races we could well say: mission accomplished, theory substantiated. But that’s not enough for us. Our most important finding: Hybrid can do more.

This is the racing version of the Porsche 918 Spyder, the Hybrid Super Car scheduled to be in production, its badged with the number “22” in honor of the Le Mans record setting Porsche 917 of 1971.

Porsche is continuing to extend its performance and high efficiency competence via intensive development work in the field of hybrid technology. With the Porsche 918 RSR, the manufacturer of sporty premium vehicles is presenting a high-end synthesis of 2010's successful hybrid concepts. The two-seater mid-engine coupé 918 RSR clearly reveals what happens when the technology fitted in the 911 GT3 R hybrid and the design of the 918 Spyder are transferred to a modern, innovative super sports car.
