Porsche‘s motorsport division presents its latest model at the Geneva motor show 2018: the 911 ‘GT3 RS’. The high-performance sports car using 383 kW (520 hp) and four-liter, high-speed naturally aspirated engine is based on the 911 ‘GT3’, that is further refined to combine the performance-enhanced engine using a running-gear setup that has re-calibrated back axle steering for maximum precision and dynamics. The 911 GT3 RS accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, reaching a top speed of 194 mph.
Aerodynamics have determined the design of this Porsche ‘911 GT3 RS’s wide, weight-optimized body using its classic stiff rear wing. The racing appearance continues into the interior with full bucket seats made of carbon to provide secure lateral aid in response to high-speed driving dynamics. Lightweight door panels with storage nets and opening loops reduced sound absorption and also the brand new lightweight back lid further emphasize the consistency of the material choices.
That the four-liter, six-cylinder naturally aspirated engine from the brand new 911 ‘GT3 RS’ compels the sports car to new limits: the horizontal motor produces 15 kW (20 hp) over the motor in the preceding model and the ‘911 GT3’. Together with a rate range reaching up to 9,000 RPM, it had been the natural choice because of a thoroughbred engine. Combined with the specially calibrated seven-speed PDK, the high-performance engine is made to ensure outstanding driving performance.
Technology directly from motorsport ensures that the chassis provides exceptional driving dynamics. Ball joints all arms provide even greater precision than conventional elastokinematic bearings. 20-inch lightweight wheels with recently developed 265/35 sports tires on the front axle enhance agility and steering behavior, while 21-inch wheels with 325/30 tires in the rear axle improve grip.
