However, there's more than meets the eye here. The new RSR breaks from 911 tradition and moves the engine amidships.

This may not seem like a lot, but it's a wild departure from the 911's longstanding rear-engine layout.

By moving the engine inboard, the RSR gains better weight distribution and room is freed up for a massive rear diffuser.

Behind the wheels are aluminum monoblock brakes that are fed cool air by dedicated vents.

In addition to the diffuser, a new rear spoiler has been added that is inspired by the 919 LMP1 prototype racer.
