We have new spy shots with new design details and less camouflage.
Now that the 992-generation Porsche 911 GT3 and purist-pleasing GT3 Touring have broken cover, enthusiasts who want to shave extra tenths of a second off their lap times won't have to wait too much longer for the new, more hardcore GT3 RS to arrive. The new GT3 has been universally praised, so we can't wait to see how Porsche improves on its winning formula.
Spy shots and videos have already shown Porsche's new track monster in action, allowing our render artists to show what the new 911 GT3 RS will look like when the camouflage comes off. As the new 911 GT3 RS gets closer to production, another prototype has been spotted with less camouflage, revealing new design details.
The most noticeable changes is the redesigned hood, which features two prominent vents. Elsewhere, we can see additional air outlets on the front and rear fenders hiding under the camo. An enormous active wing dominates the rear and looks to be production-ready. The front and rear bumpers have also been redesigned to incorporate larger air intakes that are covered up. The new GT3 RS will benefit from stiffer suspension and larger brakes than its standard sibling
Powering the new GT3 RS will be the same 4.0-liter boxer-six as the GT3. This unit produces 502 horsepower and 346 lb-ft of torque in the GT3, but the RS will reportedly have around 540-580 hp on tap. While the GT3 is offered with either a six-speed manual or a dual-clutch PDK transmission, we're expecting the new RS to only be offered with the PDK just like the current model.
Since the prototype is starting to shed more camo, there's a chance the GT3 RS could debut later this year, but an alleged engine certification issue could delay the launch until next year. We're sure it will be worth the wait.
