Porsche 911 RSR Racing On Nürburgring

Most Porsche fans know little about this epic wide-bodied 911 based race car. While the iconic 2.7 RS is every fan boys dream car, the RSR is the whole reason for the RS’s existence in the first place so we are dedicating some space here to tell you all about it. Introduced in 1973, the RSR was a factory-built racing car based on the 911 chassis.

For the privateer in the mid-1970s who wanted to go sports car racing this was the weapon of choice, especially for those who want to compete at the big races. The RSR stood as the lightest, fastest, most powerful and most agile 911 ever to enter GT racing and the model immediately proved its worth in racing.

The car won the first round of the 1973 Work Championship for Makes. It then followed up by capturing wins at the 24 Hours of Daytona, 12 Hours of Sebring, Targa Florio, and six of nine rounds in the 1973 European GT Championship.
