This is a period in time when the iconic Porsche 911 developed into an even more powerful force on track – the RSR was born. Today the RSR is recognised as one of the most successful and enduring race 911s of its generation.
Even though the RSR was conceived to be an all-out racer, it is considered by many enthusiasts the World over as the most striking and beautifully sculpted of the 911 models. This iconic car, that constantly evolved, shared many of its design elements and engineering genius with its road-going counterpart and is much admired and highly collectable.
“Opportunities like this are rare but we just got so lucky. Dedicated Porsche addicts and a dream team prepared to go above and beyond to create an impassioned film about these iconic cars.
Filmed in HD we soon realised we had something unique with a cinematic feel.
Great times and memories forever – like the time we were filming on track at the Nürburgring with a pack of roaring 911 RSRs, 935s and a very rapid 962 – absolute heaven!
Massive thanks and appreciation to everyone who assisted with this project – Porsche Cars Great Britain, Porsche Handling Circuit at Silverstone and not forgetting Derek Bell MBE, John Fitzpatrick and `Mr Porsche’ Nick Faure for their contributions in the making of this film”.
“It’s very hard to put into words the sensation of driving an RSR. The combination of a roaring mechanical fuel injected flat six race engine, instant throttle response and perfect power to weight is simply intoxicating”.
“After decades of working on road/race Porsches, it was a real buzz to get involved in this exciting project, sharing my personal passion with all of the other Porsche devotees around the world. Working on these old classics is a real joy for me”
“It was always going to be a case of the car is the star here. The drivers’ stories and anecdotes were brilliant, but we felt the priority for the fans and Porsche admirers would be to see and hear the cars doing what they were built to do – go racing. These iconic cars should be driven and driven hard, albeit with a degree of compassion considering their age. They should not be in museum but on a track and that exhaust note – just so addictive!
The Porsche archive is a treasure trove into the past. The 1970’s factory looks so medieval compared to what you see today, in those days so much was handmade. If you are a true Porsche fan you’ll spot some archive material many people have never seen before”.
