Porsche has officially revealed the new 911 GT3 RS (991.2) ahead of its global debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
The 4.0-litre (3,996 cc), flat 6-cylinder naturally aspirated engine delivers 15 kW (20 hp) more than the one in the previous model. The engine revs up to 9,000 rpm, and the official figures are 520 hp and 470 Nm of torque. The 7-Speed PDK sends power to the rear wheels.
The 911 GT3 RS accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, reaching a top speed of 312 km/h.
Front wheels are light weight 20-inch wearing 265/35 rubber, while the rear is 21-inch shod with 325/30.
As with all current GT cars, the Clubsport package is also available for the 911 GT3 RS at no extra cost. The package includes a roll-over bar, a manual fire extinguisher, preparation for a battery disconnect switch and a six-point belt for a sporty driving experience.
There is also an optional Weissach package for a further weight reduction. The package features additional carbon components for the chassis, interior and exterior, as well as optional magnesium wheels. In its lightest configuration, this package reduces the weight of the 911 GT3 RS down to 1,430 kg.
The new 911 GT3 RS is available to order now. It will be launched in Germany from mid-April 2018. Prices start at €195,137, including VAT
