The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is the most radical. This will not change with the fourth generation of the 911 GT3 RS. With the 992 generations of the GT3 RS, Porsche should go even further than its predecessor!
But first to the optics. In addition to the turbo body, which is wider than the GT3, and the front wheel arch ventilation ( since the 991.1 GT3 RS ), LatestCarNews expects the usual brutal rear design including a central double-pipe exhaust.
The aerodynamics of the new GT3 RS will be even wilder: The diffuser at the rear will be much more concise than before, and the new rear wing with the rearward-facing “gooseneck” mounts should also make it into series production. All in all, the RS version makes a much more radical impression than the GT3, which is also already hot.
Porsche fans will be pleased: As things stand now, the GT3 RS will still have the high-rev, naturally aspirated engine. Which is sure to pose some challenges for the construction department. On the one hand due to emissions, on the other hand in terms of surpassing the predecessor. Because the 911 GT3 RS was an absolute exception with a maximum speed of 9000 rpm and an output of 520 hp from four liters of displacement. For the new GT3 RS, the developers are probably still tweaking the PS screw a little.
To tease out an increase in performance from the six-cylinder boxer, it should in all probability be an increase in displacement given. One can only speculate where the journey is going in terms of performance. 530 HP to 550 HP is probably realistic. When it comes to the transmission in the RS, there is certainly still nothing to ignore the PDK. Rumors say that the upcoming GT3 RS generation will not be able to use an eight-speed PDK (as is the case with all other current 911s), but rather a PDK with seven gears.
We will probably only get certainty in the second half of 2021. Because the GT3 should only be presented before the GT3 RS, probably at the beginning of 2021. The GT3 RS should then roll to the dealers in 2022. In terms of price, the new generation will probably also be more uncompromising: for the first time, the base GT3 RS should break the 200,000 euro threshold.
