Leaked: Porsche 911 (991) GT3 RS shows up again in patent photos

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 1, 2014

Back in June, we revealed you exclusively the all-new Porsche 911 (991) GT3 RS, but today CarMagazine released new patent photos with the upcoming German sports car. Comparing it with the standard 911 (991) GT3 RS is completely new and you can see that every panel of the vehicle was redesigned.

The 911 (991) GT3 RS comes with a new front hood, a larger front splitter and a double-bubble roof in order to offer more space for helmeted drivers. Thanks to a wider track the fenders were enlarged too and the front fenders feature new air outlets inspired by old flat-nose 911s and 935s.

The rear end of the vehicle shows a massive rear wing, central exhaust twin tailpipes and a smaller ducktail underneath the spoiler, similar to the one found on the 911 RSR. Regarding its power, the 911 (991) GT3 RS is expected to deliver around 500 hp and use the 7-speed paddle-shift PDK transmission.

The standard 911 GT3 is powered by a 3.8-liter boxer engine that generates 475 hp (350 kW) at 8,250 rpm. As a result, it is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.5 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 12 seconds, while top speed is 315 km/h or 196 mph.

On the Nurburgring, the Porsche 911 (991) GT3 posted a lap time of 7 minutes and 40 seconds. The RS version is expected to be even faster.
