    Perhaps someone on Rennteam who has close links to Weissach (e.g. Whoopsy?) might be able to enlighten us as to the unusual external positioning of the exhuast on this Porsche Motorsport test mule... Smiley

    ...have they moved the exhaust outside the car to make room for the Porsche Motorsport Hybrid Boost? (i.e. PMHB) 

      1537378356532image.jpeg

    i don’t know what you all think but this looks pretty clearly to me to be a mid engine prototype and therefore perhaps an early 960 mule, finally!!! i hope they use a flat 8. please.

     

    It isn't a 960 prototype. This car is still a 911.

    My guess it's the next RSR race car.

    Re: Porsche 992 Thread Closed

    It's surprising how relaxed Porsche is being about the camo on this car. I mean at this point it's hardly a reveal when they officially show it. Interesting to think that the same thing happened with apple over this year's phones. Is the market now more interested in creating hype through controlled leaks rather than by secrecy? 


    Re: Porsche 992 Thread Closed

    Whoopsy,

    The next RSR will be homologated on the 992, no?

    Also, will you be at Rennsport? Perhaps you and I can meet up with Chicago Whale.

    Yes. This is the new RSR that will have a turbo engine. Thank God! Perhaps now it will be competitive against the Fords, without having to rely so much on BoP.

    No. The current RSR is homologated using the current GT3RS.

    It is not yet quite sure whether the engine change will require a new homologation. If it does, I suspect they will use the GT2RS as the new homologation car. 

    The 992 based RSR will most likely appear in 2 or 3 years....assuming the rules stay the same.

    Re: Porsche 992 Thread Closed

    Either next week or as latest rumor says mid October. 


    Re: Porsche 992 Thread Closed

    So we still don’t know for sure if it will be presented at Paris.

    If pics dont show up next week forget Paris and aait for LA in November. For me it doesnt make sense present the car to the American public when the Europeans will get the car in March/April and North America 4/5 months later. What do i know, right?

    Who knows for sure, but Geneva in March remains a possibility.

    Geneva is doubtful as too many near production ready cars are being photographed.  Release, based on Porsche’s past  behavior, is imminent.

    I can't imagine that it would take this long. There have been spyphotos circulating lately that had as little camuflage as some bits of tape on the front/rear lower bumpers. It should be imminent

    Yes I will be at Rennsport.

    As for Chicago Whale, if I happened to walk by him, maybe, but he is not important enough for me to seek him out, he is welcome to try and find me on the grounds though.

    Maybe they are testing a piggy tail diffusor? Smiley

     

    1537392806343image.jpeg

    Not curly enough...

    I think they are testing diffusors (not missing bumper), and they don't want the exhaust gas stream impacting their measurements.

    By the way, either the 360ª camera is not working properly or the Porsche engineer/test driver is an idiot as far as parking goes.
