The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS is as lairy-looking as the standard 911 is sensible and staid.
It has look-at-me red livery and is covered in aerodynamic flicks and fins modelled after the GT3 R racing car.
The new rear wing steals the show, but the new front splitter, bonnet vents, side skirts, and vertical fins all contribute to creating as much downforce as possible.
It’s the largest ever fitted to a roadgoing 911 and the first to ever extend above the car’s roof.
The new GT3 RS utilizes a comparative 4.0-liter normally aspirated flat-six engine as the GT3.
New camshafts assist it with feeling snappier at high fires up (the redline doesn't diminish your fun until you hit 9,000rpm) and support power from 510hp in the GT3 to 525hp in this RS model.
The seven-speed dual-clutch PDK gearbox is similar to the optional automatic ‘box you can get in the GT3 (there’s no manual option in the new RS) but Porsche has fitted a shorter final-drive ratio to boost acceleration in all seven gears.
Porsche claims it’ll hit 60-mph from rest in 3.2 seconds. That’s the same as the outgoing 991.2 GT3 RS and 0.2 seconds quicker than the new GT3.
