It seems that the engineers at Porsche have finally got around to updating the 997 GT3RS after successfully completing the refresh of the rest of the Porsche 997 911 range. This one is due to be first shown at the Frankfurt motor show in September and features a deeper body kit and larger spoiler.
As is the case with the previous generation GT3, the GT3RS will feature the same 3.8-litre flat-six producing 429bhp as the standard car. The GT3RS is built to homologate the RSR and is essentially a bridge between the two cars. Expect reduced weight through a variety of measures including plastic rear windows and a single, rather than a dual-mass flywheel. A six-speed manual gearbox, carbon-ceramic brakes and Porsche’s PASM system with switchable dampers will also feature.
