The roof on the DHL car makes the middle look like that of a Noble. Otherwise it looks awesome.

WOW~I didn't think Porsche could top the Carrera GT anytime soon, but this new supercar of their's has certainly done it. What most people don't understand is that in these ultra sports-cars the electric motor is more like a replacement for the turbo's and superchargers of old.

Good job, I think the cars are beautiful. One question, if you are a Porschephile, do you have to register as a sex offender under megans law?

Thanks so much for the feature! Here is the full story and specs. I call it the “2013 Porsche 918 RSR Spyder (GT1)”. I chose “918 RSR” because the model number “918”, is reminiscent of “917”, (hence the “8”), so I decided to add an RSR designation to the model referring to a race version. The 918 Spyder may possibly have a "Coupe" version also, as well as an "RS" version. The "918 RSR" would be based on the "918 RS". The "918 RS" drops the "Spyder" designation because, it is obviously, not a "Spyder". Since the “918 RSR” wouldn’t be able to race in the same class the 917 did (that class is non-existent), Porsche may decide to place it in the GT1 class. The “918 Spyder” comes with 2 electric motors, and a 500hp V8 from the “RS Spyder” LMP-2 car. The “918 RSR” will drop the electric motors, but will retain the KERS, and 500hp V8. Since GT1 regulates no more than 600hp, Porsche may remove air-restrictors from the engine to boost the output to 600hp. The “918 RSR” will top out in the 200mph range, and will reach 62mph in less than 3.0 seconds, possibly 2.8 seconds. The weight will be around 1,240 kilos, 2,730 lbs. The weight loss will come from the loss of the batteries, stripped interior and loss of amenities, even more extensive use of carbon fiber, and a reconstruction of body-work. Changes in the body work will come from a wider track, redesigned front and rear diffusers, as well as a fixed hard-top roof. There will be a very large rear spoiler; the current one will be fixed. The ram air scoops positioned over the 600hp V8 will be permanently opened for even more delivery of power. The “918 RSR’s” headlight system will receive a minor revision as well as the taillights. It will also get new mirrors positioned over the front-wheels straight from the Carrera GT. If the “918 RSR” does become a reality, it will likely debut at the “2013 24hrs of Le Mans”, as well as in the “Le Mans Series”. As well as rendered bodywork, I also took the time took the time to render several liveries reminiscent of 70’s “917” designs. I currently have a few rendered, one also for "TeamSpeed.com", I'm working on a few now, and will post them later. *Note; All vehicles are liveried according to 2013 speculated “Le Mans 24” specification.
