Rumors also suggest it will debut in Paris next month.
Spy shots, patent images, leaked reports and videos shot at the Nurburgring have so far told us quite a lot about the upcoming Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It’s going to have all new body panels, several made from carbon-fiber reinforced polymer, a double-bubble roof, loads of aerodynamic add-ons, turbo-style rear wings, and the GT3’s 3.8-liter six-cylinder unit tweaked to around 500 horsepower. Weighing less than 1,400 kg, it will represent the pinnacle of all 991 derivatives on the market.
Thanks to our buddies at zero2turbo, we now also know the GT3 RS has lapped the Nurburgring in 7 minutes 20 seconds (allegedly). That makes it over 20 seconds slower than the 918 Spyder (with which it shares its seats), but four seconds quicker than the GT2 RS and 13 seconds quicker than the 997-gen GT3 RS 4.0. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS will hopefully rear its pretty head at the Paris Motor Show next month, where everything we have learned to date will either be confirmed or ridiculed.
