Leaked Patent Images Reveal All-New Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Won't be arriving until next year.

It’s been spied at the Ring and revealed as a scale model, but these are the first images of the 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS in its final form. The sneak peak at the new model is the result of a slip up at the patent office where Porsche submitted new design elements for patent. From the images we can see that all body panels are new, there’s a new hood, a double-bubble roof for increased headroom, a larger front splitter, beefy front wings and gills above the front wheels.

A recent video of a GT3 RS test mule at the Ring provided a soundtrack of a high-revving naturally aspirated engine, so don’t be fooled by the car’s turbo-style rear wings and air intakes. At the rear, central exhausts ape those from the stock GT3, there’s rear wing intakes, and a high-rise wing atop a smaller ducktail a per the RSR racer. Underhood, the GT3’s 3.8-liter six-cylinder unit is likely to be tweaked to around 500 horsepower in the RS variant, and mated to a seven-speed PDK paddle-shift box. With reduced weight and race-style aeros, the GT3 RS will outperform any other road-going 991 derivative on the market.
