If Porsche decided to build a production version of the new 918 Spyder, then there would most likely be a GT1 version of it. Now, let’s take that idea a step further to say that if a production version were to be revealed in 2012, the GT1 version (or the 918 RSR) would come out in 2013. How’s that for a timeline?

The 918 RSR model will race the same competitions as the classical 917 race car. It will drop the electric motors, but will retain the KERS and the 500hp V8. Since the GT1 regulates no more than 600hp, Porsche may remove air-restrictors from the engine to boost the output to 600hp. The "918 RSR" will be able to hit a top speed of 200mph and will make the 0 to 60 mph sprint in than 3.0 seconds.

It will feature a wider track, redesigned front and rear diffusers, as well as a fixed hard-top roof and a huge rear wing. The liveries on these images were created based off of the classic Porsche liveries and designed to compete in the GT1 class.

The incredible part to this rendering is that it was created by a 13-year-old who just so happens to be a Porsche fanatic. Yeah, the artist is 13. Nice job, kid!

This RSR is something. I think this is one of the Porsche’s’ top car. The speed is incredible and the artist is just a 13 yea-old kid. He is some kind of genius.

Wow! very impressive makeover of this Porsche 918 RSR, and like most of the motoring world, the automotive lives really got off the ground at age 13, and its been so kind to share the vision of what a genuine Porsche hybrid racer might look like.

I bet this variants will be an optional to the 918 but isn’t that cool to have a car like this out of the box?

Cool! They’ve already added some variations of the 918 even though they haven’t released it on the market.
