The customer racing vehicles from Porsche have given an impressive demonstration of their huge potential at numerous races in recent weeks. The 911 RSR, 911 GT3 R and 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport have been winning all over the world.
Most notable successes were with the new 911 GT3 R at the season-opening round of the Blancpain GT Series in Italy - a sensational debut for the new Dinamic Motorsport customer squad, and at the GT World Challenge Asia, with a major triumph for customer team Absolute racing in the second race.
The 911 GT3 R triumphs didn't stop there - on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife, Porsche's customer teams again underlined this car's strengths, crossing the finish line at the VLN season-opener in second place. Only 5.486 seconds separated the two French works drivers Frédéric Makowieki and Patrick Pilet from victory in the Porsche 911 GT3 R fielded by Manthey Racing.
As for the new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport, it dominated the Pirelli GT4 America Sprint Series event at Long Beach, with Porsche customer team TRG. Against a stunning backdrop and on a very special racetrack, Spencer Pumpelly secured first place.
And finally, the Porsche 911 RSR scored a podium spot at the first round of the 2019 European Le Mans Series (ELMS). After such a successful series of races for Porsche customers, we can’t wait to follow future events.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
