porsche’s motorsport department presents its latest model at the geneva motor show 2018: the 911 ‘GT3 RS’. the high-performance sports car with 383 kW (520 hp) and four-litre, high-speed naturally aspirated engine is based on the 911 ‘GT3’, which has been further refined to combine the performance-enhanced engine with a running-gear setup that features re-calibrated rear axle steering for maximum dynamics and precision. the 911 GT3 RS accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, reaching a top speed of 194 mph.

aerodynamics have determined the design of the porsche ‘911 GT3 RS’s wide, weight-optimized body with its classic rigid rear wing. the racing look continues into the interior with full bucket seats made of carbon to provide secure lateral support in response to high-level driving dynamics. lightweight door panels with storage nets and opening loops, reduced sound absorption and the new lightweight rear lid further emphasize the consistency of the material choices.

 

 

the four-litre, six-cylinder naturally aspirated engine from the new 911 ‘GT3 RS’ pushes the sports car to new limits: the flat engine delivers 15 kW (20 hp) more than the engine in the previous model and the ‘911 GT3’. together with a speed range reaching up to 9,000 RPM, it was the natural choice as a thoroughbred sports engine. combined with the specially calibrated seven-speed PDK, the high-performance engine is created to guarantee outstanding driving performance.

 

 

technology straight from motorsport ensures that the chassis offers exceptional driving dynamics. ball joints on all arms provide even greater precision than conventional elastokinematic bearings. 20-inch lightweight wheels with newly developed 265/35 sports tyres on the front axle enhance agility and steering behaviour, while 21 inch wheels with 325/30 tyres at the rear axle improve traction.
