This car was never intended to be road legal, which means no compromises have been made in terms of achieving all-out performance. Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President of Porsche Motorsport and GT Cars, explained what this car meant for the company and fans alike. “This spectacular car is a birthday present from Porsche Motorsport to fans all over the world. Because the car isn’t homologated, engineers and designers didn’t have to follow the usual rules and thus had freedom in the development,” he said.
The car is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine mated to a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission, which is not far from what you get in the upcoming Porsche 911 Turbo but just in overdrive. This setup delivers an astonishing 700 horsepower at 7,000 rpm, and will reach a top speed of 211 mph and sprint to 62 mph in only 2.5 seconds.
