Three WIDE

9 03 2012

There will be three 2012 Porsche RSRs competing in ALMS this year.  If you’ll notice, the #17 car is the Falken Tire RSR sans the Blue & Teal livery.  All RSRs are delivered white from the Porsche factory.

2012 RSR

2 03 2012

Undressed and getting ready for shakedown just a week ago.  Hopefully the mighty Teal & Blue of the Falken Tire ALMS team will be able to slay some giants once again this year.

Initial reports from the drivers is that this car is FAST compared to the 2011 RSR.  We’ll have to wait and see just how fast the new gen RSR is once all the vehicle settings have been dialed in.  I ❤ race season.

Air Mail Part 2

7 02 2012

While on the subject of air freighted cars, feast your eyes on the 2012 911 GT3RSR that just landed from Stuttgart.  The car will be going under the knife these next few weeks and will appear Falken teal and blue when the dust settles.  Delicious.

2012 GT3 RSR

21 11 2011

Porsche definitely isn’t playing around when it comes to motorsports.  Racing isn’t something they conduct merely to maintain a marketing image, it is innately sewn into the DNA of the brand.  The 2012 RSR is simply no joke!  Ferrari’s own 458 has been blistering fast in the ALMS series, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out…if your competition gets tough, you have to get tougher.  Early reports and feedback I’ve heard from drivers is that this is the FASTEST RSR out of the box that they have ever driven by far.  This should lead to a very exciting 2012 season.

Right off the bat, you can see the front doesn’t see much change, however the rear features a significantly wider stance.  More grip and more stability in the rear is essential for the Porsches.  The engine and drivetrain largely remain the same, but the chassis is completely new and refined.  I can’t wait to see this refreshed 911 hit the track.
