#48 Dunlop / Chopard / Total / Paul Miller Racing Porsche 911 GT3 RSR

A newcomer to GT class, but a not a new comer to American Le Mans Series racing, this is the #48 Paul Miller Racing Porsche 911 GT3 RSR. Paul Miller Racing has been involved in road and endurance racing since the 1980s. This time included Porsche factory efforts in Trans-Am series and a leading racer in the IMSA endurance series.

This Porsche has the same specs as the other three Porsche 911 GT3 RSRs in the ALMS GT class – 4.0 Liter Boxer 6, pumping out around 460hp. Which makes for some intense racing! You may notice the difference in body style from previous generation 911 RSRs. This is due to a change in ACO regulations for the LM GTE class. Wider front, wider rear. And, if you have the means, you can actually purchase one of these turn-key race cars from Porsche.
