The lightweight Porsche 911R race car in build at the EB Motorsport workshops has almost reached the end of its bodywork journey and is now being prepared for paint.
Pictures show our 911 with the light composite body panels attached: front wings, doors and rear quarter panels. The roof is still steel, which may have some people asking why we didn’t use the EB Motorsport fibreglass roof panel to replace the metal panel.
Simple answer is that the lighter EB roof panel is perfect for replacing sunroof holes on cars originally equipped with a sliding roof. On a car without a sunroof, we would be putting a lot of work in to save two kilograms, so we have opted to leave things as they are and look elsewhere for weight savings.
