Different from previous 911 RSR models, the 991.2 RSR is mid-engined instead of rear-engined.
The #92 911 RSR was entered into the 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans, driven by Michael Christensen, Kévin Estre, and Dirk Werner. The #92 911 RSR placed 38th in the overall qualifying round and 7th in the LM GTE Pro class. In the race, however, the car was crashed, which resulted in the car being retired from the race.
Adopting a mid-engine, RWD layout, the new 911 RSR uses a 4.0 L naturally aspirated flat-6 engine developed from the 991.1 GT3 RS/991.2 GT3 and upgraded to make 503 hp (375 kW) and 340 ft·lb (461 N·m). With a weight of 2740 lb (1243 kg), the 911 RSR has a power-to-weight ratio of 405 hp (302 kW) per tonne.
The 911 RSR is capable of 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.3 seconds, 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h) in 7.5 seconds, and a top speed of 185 mph (298 km/h).
