At the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, Porsche 911 GT3 RS will conquer the crowd with its astounding race-bred chassis and a high-revving four-liter, naturally aspirated engine producing 520 horsepower and 346 lb.-ft. of torque. Based on the 911 GT3, the RS accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.0 seconds, which is 0.2 seconds quicker than the current 911 GT3 with PDK and 0.1 seconds quicker than the previous 911 GT3 RS. Top track speed of the 2019 911 GT3 RS is 193 mph.
The design of the wide, weight-optimized body of the car is determined by aerodynamics and lightweight construction. The front and rear fascia are made of lightweight polyurethane, while the front trunk lid and fenders on the 911 GT3 RS are made of carbon fiber and the roof consists of magnesium. The race-inspired appearance continues in the interior: Full Bucket Seats with carbon fiber reinforced backrests provide a high degree of lateral support to suit the vehicle’s exceptional level of lateral grip. Lightweight glass for the rear window and rear side windows, lightweight door panels with door opening loops, reduced sound insulation, and the omission of rear seats increase the consistency of the material choices and the dedication to saving weight.
The four-liter, naturally aspirated flat-six engine from Porsche in the new 911 GT3 RS delivers 20 horsepower more than the engine in the 2016 911 GT3 RS and the current 911 GT3. The engine is mated to a specifically tuned seven-speed PDK, which features performance-oriented gearing with the top track speed being reached in seventh gear, like all GT tuned PDK transmissions.
The car sits on forged lightweight wheels measuring 9.5 x 20 inches in diameter with newly developed 265/35 ultra-high performance (UHP) tires that enhance agility and steering precision. The 12.5 x 21 inch wheels with 325/30 UHP tires mounted at the rear deliver excellent traction.
The new 2019 911 GT3 RS is available to order and is expected to reach U.S. dealers in fall 2018. The MSRP is $187,500, not including available options or the $1,050 delivery, processing and handling fee.
