"Instead of the futuristic, ergonomically avant-garde centre console with touch-sensitive user interface from the 918 Spyder concept car, the 918 RSR's cockpit is split by a minimalistic console with rocker switches," Porsche said. "Instead of a second seat, the flywheel accumulator is positioned to the right of the console."
