According to the latest rumors, it appears that Porsche will build a new car: GT3 RS Limited Edition. Inspired by the 911 GT2 RS, revealed this summer, the new car will be produced in a limited edition of just 500 units, each powered nu a 4.0-liter engine capable to deliver 500 hp.
For those who don’t know, the GT2 RS is powered by a 3.6-liter engine, featuring two variable turbine geometry turbochargers and capable to deliver 620 hp.
Mated to a six-speed manual transmission, the engine can push the car to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.4 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited to 205 mph or 330 km/h.
Other features include unique anti-roll bars, specific engine mounts and recalibrated Porsche Stability Management (PSM), but also Porsche Composite Ceramic Brakes (PCCB).
In order to be lighter, the GT2 RS features two sports buckets made of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic as standard and lightweight door panels with fabric straps instead of traditional door handle (just like the Boxster RS Spyder).
Price of the car: $245,000. Regarding the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS Limited Edition, expect the same changes seen on the GT2 RS, a smaller price but also a smaller engine power.
For those who don’t know, the standard GT3 RS delivers 450 hp and 430 Nm of torque, can sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.0 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 12.2 seconds and has a top speed of 310 km/h or 192 mph. [via TeamSpeed]
