The new engine is based on the one Porsche now uses in its 911 racecars, including the mid-engine RSR.

Standard performance equipment includes rear axle steering, which moves the rear axle either with or against the front axle to reduce turning angles and boost high-speed agility.

Dynamic engine mounts minimize drivetrain vibration, while a locking rear differential helps maintain rear-wheel traction -- no all-wheel drive here, folks.

There's a new spoiler and diffuser, as well as a new front fascia.

The interior borrows its steering wheel from the 918 Spyder hypercar, and standard sport seats feature enough bolstering to keep even the slimmest of drivers in the seat.
