The brand new Porsche 911 RSR has officially taken to the track for its’ first public test session. The 2019 Porsche 911 RSR will be replacing the current RSR that has been a dominant force in the World Endurance Championship and IMSA.

The 2019 model will ditch the rear-exit, high pitch exhaust with a side-exit in the 2019 model. This is to create more space for the rear diffuser for more downforce for the German car. Porsche designers 3-years ago turned the RSR from a rear engine to a mid-engine configuration for WEC and IMSA to enhance the ground effects and aerodynamics that all of the other competitors have taken advantage of.

In 2020 the new RSR will compete in IMSA GTLM and WEC GTE class against the new Corvette C8.R and BMW M8. The Ford GT program with Chip Ganassi will set to end at the end of 2019.

The new RSR will have a new flat engine and larger displacement design for more power.
