New Porsche Formula E racer and Macan Turbo, and first Carrera RSR ...

Last night, Porsche pulled the wraps off the 99X Electric, which will be raced in the upcoming Formula E championship. Not a Porsche per se, the single seater racer combines a spec Dallara-built chassis and aero package with a Porsche developed electric motor. Tasked to drive the 99X Electric are seasoned Porsche hands Neel Jani and André Lotterer.
The German manufacturer also debuted the range-topping Turbo version of the revised Macan. It is powered by the latest generation twin-turbo V6 engine that features the turbochargers mounted inside the V to increase efficiency. In the Macan Turbo, the 2.9-litre unit is good for 434 bhp.
From an era long before Porsche dabbled in SUVs or all-electric spec racers, the German company built this 911 Carrera RSR. The first works car, the featured example formed the basis for a long line of hugely successful GT racers. Known internally as 'R1', it was raced at the Tour de Corse in 1972. It was finally restored to its original configuration recently and has been regularly seen at events this year.
