Porsche 911 GT3 RS

New images of a 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS prototype have emerged of the car completing undisguised and therefore giving us a clear look at the potent sports cars visual and aerodynamic upgrades compared to the already potent 911 GT3.

Compared to some prototypes spied testing in recent months, this tester features a different rear wing which appears to be production ready. Elsewhere, new gills can be found on the front fenders which were only previously visible in leaked scale models of the new 911 GT3 RS.

Despite the presence of new side air intakes, the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS will remain naturally aspirated in a nod to tradition and despite recent rumours suggesting all 911 variants will be turbocharged in the future. The tweaked engine is likely to push power up towards the 500 hp mark.

Unfortunately, a manual transmission will not be made available with the same dual-clutch transmission of the ‘standard’ GT3 likely to be maintained. Another new feature will be a pit-lane function which at the press of a button, will limit the car’s speed in a pit-line during racetrack visits.

According to recent reports, the 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife in a mere 7 minutes and 20 seconds.
