Porsche has announced that they will be entering an improved version of the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid into the upcoming Nürburgring 24 hour race on June 25, 2011. The hybrid system will combine the same 480 HP 4.0 Liter flat six engine delivering the same 480 hp with two electric motors that each produce 100 HP, as opposed to the original 75 HP each. The weight has also been lowered from 1,350 to 1,300 kilograms, or 2976 lbs to 2866 lbs.
"We’ve collected a great deal of information from our races on the Nürburgring, at the ALMS race at Road Atlanta in the USA, as well as from the ILMC race on China’s Zhuhai circuit, which was an invaluable help for the further development of our racing laboratory," says Hartmut Kristen, head of Porsche motorsport. "The emphasis of our work was on improving efficiency. That means we want to keep the lap times consis-tent with 2010 but use less energy, hence less fuel. In this way, we support future developments of road-going, sporting hybrid vehicles."

Exterior

The 2011 model’s, or Version 2.0, exterior will be distinguished from the previous version by the elimination of the large louvers in front of the rear fenders. This will allow for reduced drag and better fuel consumption.

Interior

Other than the motors, the biggest changes for the Version 2.0 will be found in the interior. The cockpit has been completely revised with most of the displays and controls getting moved to the steering wheel. Drivers can operate the rest of the functions via backlit buttons now situated on the center console. This purposeful placement was done to increase the efficiency for the driver.

Engine

Like with the previous model, the Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid Version 2.0 is powered by a hybrid system that combines a 480 HP 4.0 Liter flat six engine placed in the rear with two electric motors that drive the front wheels. The two motors will add an extra 200 HP (100 hp each) as opposed to the 150 HP offered on the first model. This power is automatically activated through the throttle pedal and can be quickly called upon when zipping around a competitor. Other than situations where the extra power can be used to overtake the competition for a few seconds, the Porsche will rely on the 4.0L engine for its stamina.
The electric flywheel accumulator, wrapped in carbon fiber, can still be found on the passenger’s side.

Competition

With this new version, Porsche wants to obtain at least the same results they did last year. But the question still remains if the new GT3 R Hybrid model is ready to take on models like the Audi RS and the BMW M3, who were its biggest competitors last year.
In an official statement after the race in 2010, Timo Bernhard (Germany), one of the GT3 drivers, said: "It is extraordinary to climb to the top of the podium at the first race ever of a new race car. It seems the new 911 GT3 R has inherited the reliability of all racing 911. With 14.5 and 3.6 seconds respectively, the three Porsche pilots relegated the best Audi RS and the BMW M3 to finish second and third."
