Spy Shots—Porsche 911 Race Car Shot Testing

 911

KGP Photography's man in Germany has photographed a new 911-based race car, clad in familiar black-and-white graphic camouflage. This test car is just now leaving the ’Ring, and technical details are few at this time.

The most likely explanation is that this new Porsche 911 racer is a product of Manthey Racing—the Nürburgring-based race team of which Porsche is a majority shareholder. Manthey Racing sprang out of the success of famed German race car driver Olaf Manthey. However, when Olaf's son died in an accident, Porsche agreed to take control in order to keep the race team running. It's likely that this 911-based race car is some variant of the new-generation 911 RSR Evolution.
