Article by Christian Andrei, on October 27, 2014

Porsche has yet to debut the 911 (991) GT3 RS but the naughty sports car already showed up thanks to some patent drawings released by an unknown source. Today, the German coupe showed up again and this time we are talking about a scale model of the upcoming vehicle. The small vehicle is finished in Java Orange and next to it we also see the photo of the production version.

When it comes to design, the new 991 GT3 RS features a double-bubble roof in order to offer more space for the helmeted drivers, enlarged fenders as well as new air outlets for the front fenders inspired by the old flat-nose 911s and 935s.

At the rear, there is a big spoiler inspired by the one featured on the 911 RSR. There are no details regarding the engine output, but several sources confirmed the fact that the new 911 (991) GT3 RS is expected to arrive with 500 hp and a 7-speed paddle-shift PDK transmission.

The current 911 (991) GT3 is powered by a 3.8-liter boxer engine that produces 475 hp (350 kW) at 8,250 rpm. The engine pushes the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.5 seconds, to 200 km/h (62 mph) in 12 seconds, while top speed is 315 km/h or 196 mph.

On the Nurburgring, the 911 GT3 RS is expected to be faster than the 911 (GT3), which lapped the well-known German racetrack in 7 minutes and 40 seconds.
