Porsche 918 RSR – High Performance Hybrid Concept

Porsche 918 RSR Porsche opens NAIAS with innovative hybrid ‘race lab’ concept

Porsche AG opened the North American International Auto Show today with the World Premiere of the Porsche 918 RSR. This is the sports car manufacturer’s first appearance at the Detroit show since 2007.  Matthias Mueller, President and CEO of Porsche AG said: “We are back in Detroit with a clear message: Porsche further extends its competencies when it comes to performance and efficiency. The Porsche 918 RSR impressively demonstrates the passion of our engineers and designers for developing the world’s most advanced and best looking sports cars.”

The 918 RSR concept is a high-end synthesis of Porsche’s 2010 successful hybrid concepts – the 911 GT3 R Hybrid and the 918 Spyder. It is a true ‘racing laboratory’ featuring an updated V8 engine from the successful RS Spyder race car with an output of 563 hp at 10,300 rpm. In addition, it features electric motors on the two front wheels that each contribute 75 kW, i.e. a total of 150 kW, to provide peak drive power of exactly 767 hp. This additional power, which is generated during braking, is stored in an optimized flywheel accumulator.
