Friday at the Rennsport Reunion 7: The 911 GT3 R rennsport makes its global public debut

Monterey, California, Sept. 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The second day of the seventh running of the Rennsport Reunion was celebrated in style as one of the most extreme 911s ever created – the new 911 GT3 R rennsport – made its global public debut.

Revealed to the media last night, the 911 GT3 R rennsport develops 611 hp and revs to a peak of 9,400 rpm. Equipped with race bodywork and just one seat, the car was developed by enthusiasts for enthusiasts and focuses entirely on uncompromised track use. Just 77 cars will be built. Fittingly, the 911 GT3 R rennsport made its public debut on track – its mighty exhaust note reverberating around the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca with Jörg Bergmeister behind the wheel.

“It was awesome to stretch the legs of the new 911 GT3 R rennsport today – the car felt completely at home here,” said Jörg Bergmeister after the car’s debut. “Even on exploratory laps, not really pushing too hard, the power, the grip, the braking performance and aero are just incredible. Most of all, that sound! Even in the car it sounds like a real beast – it really makes you feel alive!”

Tonight, competing with the volume of the 911 GT3 R rennsport, will be the open air viewing of the new Transformers: Rise of the Beasts movie in the central area of Rennsport, called the Park in the Paddock. The family event will be complimented by props from the movie – with Mirage, the 911 created for the latest instalment of the franchise, present, along with model Autobots standing tall above the audience.

The action returns tomorrow for the third day of Rennsport – breaking news, image galleries and footage can be found here.
