Upgraded Porsche 991.2 RSR GTE w/ Side Exhaust in action!

This video is about Porsche's new RSR race car testing on track. It features many upgrades and changes compared to the currently used one, such as a new front bumper (similar to the 991.2 GT3 R) and hood, new mirrors, rear diffuser, wing profile and of course that new side exhaust system. Well, basically everything on the outside has been modify and possibly this version will race in the 2019/2020 WEC Super Season, starting from the Prologue next July (don't think it's something we'll see from 2021 onward). The general style of the car is still based on the 991 Mk2 version. What about the sound, since I've already seen many discussions on the web whether it is turbocharged or not? I'm convinced it's still N/A, because, even if from some angles you can hear similar notes to the Ford GT ones, none turbo spooling or whistling are noticeable and with a such short exhaust it would have been obvious. For me the different "old style" sound comes from the exhaust layout: in fact, if you remember, when the mid-engined RSR was unveiled in 2017 it had a lovely and raw 996 RSR tone, due to the two rear but separated pipes. Then for the 2017 24h Le Mans pre-tests, Porsche changed the configuration to the one we're used to (two very closed and centered pipes) giving her the great high pitched noise. Same happened with the Porsche Cayman GT4 (981) and the current 718 Cayman GT4: same engine, different exhaust system. I'm pretty sure that's how the flat-6 behaves based on its exhaust layout (check some old Gr. 4 911s videos, and you'll spot the same differences in its melody too) so having the two side exhaust is comparable to the early 2017 version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvnxJXNdhHU What do you think? #Porsche991RSR #Porsche991RSREvo #PorscheRSR - Subscribe to my 2nd channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3XVG02cKYsLyUUewv-qkoQ You can also find and follow me on: - Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/19bozzy92/ - Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/19Bozzy92YT - Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ste19bozzy92/ Camcorder: Canon Legria HF G30 + Canon DM-100 Microphone Event: Porsche AG Tests Where: Monza Eni Circuit, Italy Link To My Channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/19Bozzy92 THANKS FOR WATCHING AND SUBSCRIBE!!!
