    All new Porsche 911 GT3 R, the legendary Carrera RSR 2.8 and VW Golf GTE Sport ...

    On the eve of this year's Nurburgring 24 Hours, Porsche has released the all-new 911 GT3 R. Based on the recently launched 911 GT3 RS road car, the new racer is built to comply with the latest GT3 regulations. As such the GT3 R will be eligible for a wide range of national and international championships and should also star at the 'Ring next year. It is powered by a flat-six engine, capable of over 500hp and features many lightweight carbon composite panels. The 911 GT3 R will be available before the end of the year.
    Porsche's launch today prompted us to take a renewed look at one of the new racer's legendary predecessors; the 911 Carrera RSR 2.8. Based on the Carrera 2.7 RS road-car, the GT machine was the first of a long line of 911 competition cars raced by Porsche customers of which the new GT3 R is the latest incarnation. Among the six examples featured in our 103-shot gallery is the outright winner of the Sebring 12 Hours. In addition to that victory, the RSR 2.8 also scored numerous outright and class victory before being superseded by the larger engined RSR 3.0 we featured a few weeks ago.
    At this weekend's Worthersee GTI Treffen, Volkswagen will also showcase this spectacular Golf GTE Sport. This plug-in hybrid machine boasts a WRC-derived petrol engine, supported by two electric motors. The combined output of the aggressively styled Golf GTE Sport is 395 hp.

    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.
