As good looking as the car is – helped by a redesigned front spoiler - don’t get too excited about what lies beneath the racing stripes because the rest of the car has not been inspired by Porsche’s latest Le Mans racer. Therefore, don't expect it to have a state-of-the-art hybrid motor powering its wheels.
Instead it has the same 3.8-liter flat six usually found in the 911 Carrera S. Still, with a 0-62mph (100km/h) time of 4.1 seconds and almost 400bhp on tap, it’s no slouch.
Instead of an engine upgrade, Porsche has thrown in a bunch of toys as standard that are usually high on the options list. So it has the Chrono Sports package for timing laps, the full Porsche infotainment system (including satnav) and a special steering wheel.
