2008 Porsche 997 RSR

Proton-Felbermayr semi-Works car
Model history:
First introduced in 2006, the 997 RSR was built to comply with the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, the FIA-GT and IMSA as well as VLN regulations. Based on the 997 GT3, the RSR features a 3.8-litre flat-6 engine with two 30.3 mm air restrictors as compared to the 3.6-litre engine of its predecessor with 29 mm restrictors. The engine has a red-line of 9,000 rpm due to the increase in capacity and the corresponding reprogramming of the electronics. The new positioning of the mid-front radiator and the use of side radiators – shared with the Carrera GT – contribute to the thermal health of the engine. The 997 RSR used the 6-speed sequential manual transmission of 996 RSR for the 2006 season. For the 2007 season, a new 6-speed sequential manual transmission was added which was shared with the RS Spyder.

The bodyshell with the welded-in safety cage is ten percent stiffer than the 996 RSR. Distinctive wheel arches widen the body by 50 mm on each side. The relocation of the supplementary oil tank, power steering components and battery to the front improve weight distribution. The front and rear lids, the front fenders, the rear section, the doors as well as the front and rear panelling and wing are made of carbon fibre. Polycarbonate rear and side windows further aid in weight reduction.

The newly-developed aerodynamic package improves aerodynamic efficiency by a total of around seven percent over the 996 RSR. In compliance with the FIA and A.C.O. regulations the new GT3 RSR features a flat underbody.
The RSR featured ZF-Sachs shock absorbers which have Through-Rod-System with considerably lower chamber pressure and hence generate less friction than conventional dampers. As a result, they offer a significantly improved response characteristic. The improved axles featured new anti-rollbars, an adjustable upper link and an optimised lower link.

In 2007 Porsche added front air louvers that channel air into the radiators and exit through the bonnet. The 997 GT3 RSR has scored many class victories around the world and is today one of the most successful Porsche GT cars. Only 75 examples have been built by Porsche.

Specific history of this car:
Chassis 9922 was sold new in 2008 to the semi-Works Team Proton-Felbermayr to compete in the ELMS as well as in Le Mans and was driven during the season by Porsche stars like Marc Lieb, Alex Davidson and Wolf Henzler.

After the 2008 season the car was sold to a Swiss gentleman driver who drove the car at various smaller events as the Porsche Swiss Cup and the Peroni Endurance Series. 

The car was always meticulously serviced by the Swiss Porsche Team Stadler and is now for sale to continue racing in one of the various racing series as Peter Auto or the Masters Series.

With the car comes a large spares package that includes spare engines, wheels, gearbox and suspension parts.
