Porsche 911 GT3 RS 2023

This is the Porsche 911 GT3 RS 992. It has brand-new, Formula One-inspired technology and is the most extreme, track-focused 911 you can buy. Here is all the information you really need.

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS, a track-focused, bare-bones vehicle, is returning. This new 992-generation vehicle features numerous motorsport-inspired improvements, including as aerodynamic changes adapted from Formula 1, new suspension parts, chassis modifications, and a more potent naturally aspirated engine.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS has a new design. As conventional and sober as the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS is the basic 911. It has look-at-me red livery and is covered in aerodynamic flicks and fins modeled 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. The first to ever extend above the roof of a 911, it is the largest ever installed on one. It also has a drag-reduction system (DRS) inspired by the F1 that uses hydraulic rams to open and close a wing flap to aid increase maximum speed or downforce.

The new GT3 RS will release some of its 860 kg of total downforce if you press a button on the steering wheel to activate it, aiding you in reaching a top speed of 184 mph. Similar to the GT3, the new GT3 RS has a 4.0-liter flat-six engine with natural aspiration. The redline doesn't stop your pleasure until you reach 9,000 rpm thanks to new camshafts, which also increase power from 510 horsepower in the GT3 to 525 horsepower in this RS edition.

The new RS's seven-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission is comparable to the optional automatic transmission available in the GT3, but Porsche has added a lower final-drive ratio to improve acceleration across the board. Porsche promises that it will go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. That is 0.2 seconds quicker than the new GT3 and identical to the previous 991.2 GT3 RS. The 911 GT3 RS will probably complete the crucial 0-60 mph sprint in close to 2.7 seconds, though Porsche typically undersells the performance of these vehicles, so you should take that statistic with a dangerously big grain of salt.

With a few nice enhancements, of course, the interior of the new GT3 RS is comparable to that of the most recent GT3. These include updated steering wheels with additional controls for operating the car's new adaptive suspension, as well as standard carbon-fiber sports seats. You may adjust the compression and rebound damping of each axle separately as well as the settings of the common rear limited-slip differential if you consider yourself an expert in automobile setup. Additionally, the free Clubsport Pack includes a steel roll cage that you can choose to use or forego in favor of the Weissach pack's lighter carbon fiber cage. Unpainted carbon fiber body panels and optional magnesium alloy wheels are also included.

Sales of the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS have begun. Costs start at £178,500. That is almost £10,000 and over £40,000 more expensive than a 911 Turbo S. Nearly £26,000 is added with the Weissach Pack option (if you spec it with the fancy carbon cage).

The 911 GT3 RS production run isn't constrained to a specific quantity of vehicles, unlike other special-edition Porsche models (such the Sport Classic). The specific Porsche handshake might not be necessary after all to secure a build space.
