Porsche 911 GT3 RS has already been unveiled, but an even more robust version called the GT3 RS is on its way and will be seen at the Nürburgring.
The Porsche 911 GT3 is a long-standing alternative to other avid sports cars like the McLaren 600LT and the Mercedes AMG GT R Pro, and the RS model builds on that and adds more route-oriented features and development.
2021 Porsche 911 GT3 RS design
The Porsche 911 GT3 already looks like a race car gone wrong at Silverstone to get to the M1, but it looks like the RS model will be even more spectacular.
It still looks like a 911, but the GT3 RS has a different nose to improve airflow, a dual exhaust system in the center of the rear bumper (a defining feature of the model), and of course, a huge rear spoiler for support. Speedway.
The opening at the bottom of the front bumper is widened to direct air to the radiators, and there are two main openings in the hood to help hot air escape under the car.
At the front of the car, 20-inch alloy rims are standard, while the rear is slightly larger at 21 inches. All four have race-specific center locks instead of the normal wing nuts.
The GT3 RS has ventilation openings in front of the doors and huge brakes behind the aluminum rims. The rear is wrapped in temporary plastic, but it clearly has a large diffuser which, along with the huge mudguard, gives the car more downforce and grip in fast corners. As in a normal 911, the brake light extends across the entire width of the vehicle.
The interior of the GT3 RS can still be seen, but the Porsche 911 GT3 revealed earlier gives a good idea of what the interior will look like. It foregoes animal comfort almost entirely, with abandoned rear seats and matching low front seats.
Air conditioning and infotainment are found on the GT3 but are generally not standard on RS models to save weight. A rear safety bar and six-point seatbelts can be added to the GT3, and will likely be standard on the GT3 RS.
Engine and transmission
The new 911 GT3 RS is powered by a 4.0 liter naturally aspirated six-cylinder engine that produces an output of over 510 hp. and helps the car accelerate up to 100 km/h in less than four seconds. Each GT3 RS will have rear-wheel drive, but you can choose between a dual-clutch automatic transmission and a manual transmission.
The new GT3 RS won’t be as fast on endurance as the four-wheel-drive 911 Turbo S, but it will be lighter and its more stable, track-oriented chassis should speed up corners. It will also be the fastest 911 to come with a manual transmission option, which can be a big selling point if you’re a gas enthusiast who likes to shift gears.
Porsche 911 GT3 RS 2021 Performances
The Porsche 911 GT3 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds. That’s just half a second slower than the all-wheel-drive Turbo S, which is impressive considering the GT3’s rear-wheel drive. It will also reach a top speed of 199 mph.
The RS model will have a lot of downforces, meaning that it won’t have the same top speed as the GT3, but it will probably be lighter and will outperform 0-100 km/h.
The 911 GT3 weighs just 1,418 kg manually (1,435 kg with automatic transmission) and you can expect that thanks to the big weight reduction in the RS version.
Price and Release date
Official details of the new 911 GT3 RS have yet to be released, but the car is expected to be unveiled in late 2021 and consumer sales will begin shortly thereafter.
The new GT3 RS starts at around £140,000 but adds some bells and whistles like a nifty interior, upgraded carbon-ceramic brakes, and a sporty exhaust, and you may have to pay around £160,000.
