Car lovers waited a long time to see the RS version of the new GT3, and it wasn’t easy because every once in a while a prototype would show up somewhere in the world, teasing the fans to death. But now that the car has made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show and the dust is settling, let’s take a closer look at the Porsche 991 GT3 RS.
Here you can view the Porsche 991 GT3 RS from every angle in the walkaround video and look at its subtle details to your heart’s content. Granted, there isn’t that many new features over the regular GT3, but that’s Porsche’s way. It is all about the little details…
Packing a 500 horsepower version of the GT3’s flat-six engine, the lighter, more aerodynamic Porsche 991 GT3 RS is designed for those who want the closest thing to a race car which they can drive on the road. This car, as Porsche puts is, breaks boundaries and “pushes limits.”
Priced from $175,900, the Porsche 991 GT3 RS comes with a bespoke aero kit tailored for this model consisting of larger front splitter, wider side sills, rear diffuser with central tailpipe, ducktail spoiler, and a fixed rear wing. It is only available with a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission and boasts a locking rear differential. Performance figures are yet to be announced, but outright performance is not what counts when you are dealing with the RS. It’s about the way this thing devours the race track.
