- 525 hp from the Turbopolis 4.0 V6 engine
- Always with automatic PDK
- Twice the downforce of the previous 911 GT3
- Aerodynamics in the front, the rear spoiler over the roof edge
It was the current generation of the Porsche 911 that was introduced in 2019 The 510 hp GT3 The top model to date and therefore the sportiest member of the 911 family. The sportiest, but not the fastest in a straight line. For example, the 911 Turbo and Turbo S engines stamp out 581 horsepower and 650 horsepower on the wheels. The 911 GT3 can call itself the most dynamic model thanks to its naturally aspirated, naturally aspirated four-cylinder boxer engine without turbo and with many machines from racing. However, the 911 GT3 is now being thrown off the throne by this brand new and tougher 911 GT3 RS.
Traditionally, GT3 so sennsPort-cure underwent preference in the 911 GT3. Meaning it is a track car that you can use on public roads. Of course, the new GT3 RS is slightly more powerful than the “regular” GT3, although the power gain is relatively minimal. The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS has the same 4.0 six-cylinder boxer engine as the GT3. It is a six-cylinder derivative machine also found in the 911 GT3 R Endurance. In the GT3 RS, the power of this stop is 525 hp thanks to the new camshafts, among other things. Previous 911 GT3 RS It kicked up to 520 horsepower. Until the arrival of the new 911 GT2 and GT2 RS, the new king of the 911 family sprinted to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds.
Even more than a 911 GT3 without an RS added, maximum performance is high on the priority list, and so you can’t get a 911 GTRS with a manual transmission. Shifting is always done with a seven-speed PDK automatic transmission. This transmission has shorter gear ratios than the 911 GT3, with the logical consequence that the RS can’t approach the top speed (318 km/h) of the GT3, but is faster at lower speeds. If you pedal the 911 GT3 all the way, you should be able to reach a speed of 296 km/h. Behind the 20-inch wheels with a center nut, heavier braking hides to cool the 911 GT3 once again. Porsche talks about six-piston aluminum clutches on the front axle and discs with a diameter in which Domino’s pizza does not bake: 40.8 cm. For extra bite force, Porsche has a carbon ceramic brake system on the options list.
As mentioned earlier, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is mainly about dynamics and to a lesser extent about straight-line speed. What is the main reason for his profit? Including cooling. You’ll notice the amazing coolant vents in the front cover of the new 911 GT3 RS in the photos. Beneath it is a massive cooler, where exactly you can store your luggage in even the milder 911s. Using a massive radiator, borrowed from the 911 RSR Le Mans Racer, instead of three in more common places, Porsche was able to give way to active aerodynamics, the main theme on which the 911 GT3 RS improved significantly. The newest member of the 911 family features ever-changing front elements, distinctive front wheel sections and a massive two-piece rear spoiler. This intense work on the wing and wing delivers the Porsche 911 GT3 RS at a speed of 200 km/h and no less than 409 kgf. down force on me. It generated twice the downward pressure as the previous 911 GT3 RS and at least three times as much as last year’s RS-less 911 GT3. three times! At a speed of 285 km / h, the total compressive strength is not less than 860 kgf. It’s like pressing a 911 GT3 RS against asphalt in a Kia Picanto.
More interesting news on how the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is hacked into the air? Believes. It is the first production car from Porsche to receive the Drag Reduction System (DRS). To enable a high top speed, the DRS allows the wings of the 911 GT3 RS to be laid flat, resulting in less drag. If for any reason you have to walk completely in the moorings, wing work will do the opposite. Air brake function for the newcomer from Porsche. The rear spoiler has significantly grown in all respects compared to the previous GT3 RS. The top is hydraulically adjustable. Fun fact: The spoiler is so high that it protrudes above the ceiling. At least what catches the eye are the large slats in the front fenders and the slots in the rear wheel arches. These serve only to improve aerodynamics and play no role in the breathing or cooling of the six cylinders.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS naturally gives an adjustable chassis. The rear axle steering and various driver assistance systems are designed to match the sporty character of the RS. In Track mode, you can adjust the damping yourself and can also adjust the way the rear differential behaves. There are four swivel knobs on the steering wheel to adjust the 911 GT3 RS to your preference. The doors, fenders, front hatch and roof are made of carbon fibre-reinforced plastic. As a result, the 911 GT3 RS weighs just 1,450 kilograms despite its additions. Special racing bucket seats also contribute to keeping weight limited. Moreover, you close the doors with pull rings and you have to do without a comprehensive infotainment system.
Could it be more severe?
The 911 GT3 RS comes standard with black leather upholstery and carbon fiber trim on the interior. At no additional cost, you can order the Porsche Clubsport package, which includes a roll bar, a fire extinguisher and a six-point driver’s seat belt. If that’s not enough, you can check the Weissach package for a fee. You can recognize the 911 GT3 RS with the Weissach enjoying on the outside the carbon fiber visible on the front cover, roof, side mirrors and parts of the rear spoiler. But the package includes more. For example, the stabilizer bars at the front, rear and part of the rear axle are replaced with ones made of carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic. The roll rod is also made up of those lightweight things. The Weissach package also offers paddle shifters with what Porsche calls “magnetic technology,” paddles with a clearer pressure point that give a sharper “click” when shifting. For an additional cost, you can also opt for magnesium wheels that reduce the 911 GT3 RS’s weight by eight kilograms.
The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS can be ordered immediately and will be available at Porsche Centers in the Netherlands from November. It will soon become clear how much the new Top-911 will cost.
