With the new Porsche 911/991 specs revealed ahead of the vehicle’s Frankfurt debut, it was only a matter of time before the full line of 911 models got their turn at the rendering desk. We’ve already covered the 911 Turbo and the 911 GT3 , so now it’s the GT3 RS’ turn.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS should debut a short time after the 911 GT3 is revealed sometime in 2013. It will take the GT3’s 480 HP and tack on another 20 HP for a total of 500 HP. Unlike other 911 models, the GT3 RS will be offered exclusively with Porsche’s new seven-speed manual gearbox.
In addition to the added power, the 911 GT3 RS will feature some additions typical to the RS family. Expect an improved suspension to keep those tires firmly planted, better aerodynamics to reduce drag and boost performance, and an extra-large carbon-fiber rear wing serving as a reminder of its racing connections.
