For their one millionth fan milestone on Facebook, German automaker Porsche thought of celebrating by coming out with a special exhibition inside the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart solely dedicated to a unique custom-made 2011 Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid . Starting February 11, 2011, the Porsche museum will be presenting a Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid adorned with the signatures of more than 27,000 Porsche Facebook fans.
The 911 GT3 R Hybrid was chosen for this extraordinary signature-gathering campaign because it impressively embodies the future of motorsport – with Porsche Intelligent Performance.
The hybrid racer comes with a 4.0-liter flat-six engine that delivers 480 horsepower and is combined with two electric motors that each develop 69 kW and an electrical flywheel power generator located in the cockpit right next to the driver. This particular unit is used to deliver energy to the two electric motors and is charged any time the driver applies the brakes. Conversely, the two electric motors reverse their function on the car’s front axle and acts as generators when the car isn’t providing all-wheel drive traction.
If you want to see this special edition Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid, you can take a good look at it at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
The Porsche Museum is open Tuesday to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission for adults is Euro 8,-, with a special reduction available to Euro 4,-. Admission is free for children up to the age of 14 years provided they are accompanied by an adult. For further information, please visit www.porsche.com/museum or www.facebook.com/porsche.
