2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Posted on by  

Now that Porsche has revealed the full line of specifications for the new generation 911 family, creative types are busying themselves with the different variations up the brand’s sleeve. We just revealed our thoughts on the next gen 911 Turbo and then we found PS-Garage’s take on the future GT3 RS .

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is the perfect sports car for those looking for true racetrack performance in a street car. The RS version will be the next logical step after the new 911 GT3 is revealed sometime in 2013, and while the new standard GT3 will deliver somewhere in the neighborhood of 480 HP, the RS version will be working with about an 20 HP. Unlike other 911 models, the GT3 RS will be offered exclusively with Porsche’s new seven-speed manual gearbox.

The new GT3 RS will bring in some of the usual upgrades such as an improved suspension, better aerodynamics, and an extra-large carbon-fiber rear wing serving as a reminder of its racing connections.

Updated 02/20/2014: British magazine AutoCar reports that the new generation 911 GT3 RS will be powered by a naturally aspired engine with an output of at least 500 horsepower. With this amazing output the GT3 RS should go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 or 3.3 seconds and up to a top speed of 196 mph.
