2018 Porsche 911 GT3 RS goes official with 520 hp

After a number of spy photos, as well as some leaked ones, we can finally say that 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is going to arrive soon, with the latest, high resolution photos that had been published. Porsche has officially unveiled the model. The car will make its first public appearance in a few weeks at the Geneva Motor Show, following this world debut that came as a surprise.

Aside from the photos that were published, it seems like earlier reports were accurate when they said that the 911 will have a naturally aspirated engine, and that its 4.0 liter flat-six makes 520 horsepower (383 kilowatts) and can rev itself further than you can think of, precisely 9,000 rpm.

That’s 20 hp more than its predecessor’s engine. We first thought that maybe Porsche will increase engine displacement for the GT3 RS, but apparently not. The current engine says that it will hit 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) in only 3.2 seconds before continuing to its top speed of 312 kilometers per hour (194 miles per hour).

Mcchip-dkr unveils the Porsche 911 Targa GT3 RS

For those Porsche enthusiasts out there, you must know that the Porsche 911 lineup is wide enough that you can get a model or trim that fits your style and personality - these range from models like the basic 911 Carrera all the way to the high performance, all wheel drive Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet. But here’s one more.

German tuner McChip-dkr has built a powered-up Targa version of the 911. Just check out this example they modified. They were able to tweak the Targa body and gave it GT3 levels of power, which have previously been available only in a coupe.

They were able to do this by taking a 911 Targa 4 GTS as their base. McChip-dkr then managed to maximize the car’s output to 566 horsepower (422 kilowatts) and 498 pound-feet of torque (675 Newton-metres).

Porsche 911 GT3 RS shocks onlookers as it goes “swimming” in Amsterdam

Porsche 911s series is definitely one of the most competitive among performance cars and the GT3 RS is one of the most powerful of them all. The Porsche 911 (991) GT3 RS is powered by a 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine that produces 500 horsepower. It has a top speed of 193 mph and can go from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds. There are only about 2,000 GT3s RS made; that is why one model in Amsterdam in the Netherlands has caused a stir in the automotive world.

Most Porsche fans know that newly made Porsches are cooled by water. As much as it is a cringe worthy process for Porsche purists, that’s just how the German automaker has been making their current models. But these water-cooled Porsches also have their limits especially when they’re all done and ready for distribution. One just doesn’t tread uncharted waters, not even in an ultra-rare Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

Unfortunately for one Gulf-liveried 911 GT3 RS in Amsterdam, it decided to go for a dip into the lake behind Porsche Centrum Amsterdam. Luckily, the damage was only limited to the front part of the GT3 RS and its rear-engine design did its job of saving the poor GT3 RS from fully going out for a swim into the lake.

2015 Porsche 911 (991) GT3 RS arrives at Geneva Motor Show

Porsche’s all-new 911 (991) GT3 RS was finally unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, but as you may know already, the vehicle was shown in patent images last year. According to the German carmaker, the 911 (991) GT3 RS is powered by a 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine producing 500 hp (368 kW) and 460 Nm of torque. As a result, the new vehicle is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.3 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 10.9 seconds, while top speed is in excess of 300 km/h (186 mph).

Combined NEDC fuel consumption in the is 12.7 l/100 km. Other highlights of the vehicle includes functions such as declutching by “paddle neutral”, which is comparable to pressing the clutch with a conventional manual gearbox, but also speed limiting by Pit Speed button, customized for motorsport use.

Compared with the 911 GT3, the new vehicle is 10 kg lighter thanks to the roof made of magnesium, carbon fiber used for the engine and luggage compartment lids and other lightweight components made of alternative materials. Other characteristics of the 911 GT3 RS include the unique front wheel arch air vents that extend in the upper section of the wings, as well as the 30 centimetre wide recess that extends centrally over the CFRP bonnet and the magnesium roof.

We’ve already seen the patent images and the scale model, but today the all-new Porsche 911 (991) GT3 RS was finally caught undisguised and looks ready to challenge any racetrack. Compare with the standard model, the 911 (991) GT3 RS can be easily distinguished thanks to a new front hood, a larger front splitter as well as the double-bubble roof.

In addition, the sports car features a wider track and new air outlets found on the front fenders, which are inspired by the old flat-nose 911s and 935s. At the rear, there is a big rear wing, central exhaust twin tailpipes but also a smaller ducktail spoiler, which is similar to the one found on the 911 RSR.

There are no details regarding the output delivered by the engine, but we expect to find around 500 hp as well as the 7-speed paddle-shift PDK transmission. For those who don’t know, the standard 911 (991) GT3 uses a 3.8-liter boxer engine producing 475 hp (350 kW) at 8,250 rpm.

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.

Last month, we revealed you the fact that the next Porsche 911 (991) GT3 RS could ditch the naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat six engine in favor of a turbocharged engine. While there are several reports saying different things, today we received a photo that shows a possible scale model of the all-new 911 (991) GT3 RS.

As you can see the car shown in the photo features new front fenders fitted with air inlets as well as a fixed rear wing that underlines the power found under it.

We do expect the new 911 (991) GT3 RS to be more powerful than the current 911 GT3, which features a 3.8-liter flat six engine delivering 475 hp (350 kW) at 8,250 rpm.

It appears that the next-generation Porsche 911 GT3 RS will be a big step forward for the German carmaker as the company is considering a turbocharged engine. According to Autocar, Porsche engineers are concerned on how to extract enough power from the naturally aspirated 3.8-liter flat six engine and keep it reliable.

As you may know already, Porsche already recalled the 911 (991) GT3 due to engine problems and announced that it will replace the powerplants found on the vehicles it sold.

The engine that powers the Porsche 911 GT3 delivers 475 hp (350 kW) at 8,250 rpm and it is bolted to a Porsche dual-clutch transmission (PDK) that delivers the power to the rear wheels.

More details about the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS model were revealed by Porsche performance cars chief Andreas Preuninger. At the recently held Geneva Motor Show, Porsche presented the new 911 GT3. In an interview with Car Magazine, Preuninger said that the next RS is slated to be launched in early 2014, in line with Porsche’s plan to have its debut take place “three-quarters of a year” after the GT3’s launch.

The 911 GT3 RS will be powered by the same 3.8-liter flat-six engine that was used on the standard 911 GT3. However, its output has been enhanced. It’s believed that it may deliver up to 500hp as Preuninger has said that the present GT3 engine already offers near to 493hp even when it has been given a rating of 469hp. Similar to the new GT3, the RS will also be available with just a PDK dual-clutch transmission.

Making a manual available would lead to additional development work. Furthermore, Preuninger has pledged that the PDK is capable of shift times below the 100 millisecond expected for the standard GT3. It has been reported that the new RS will be more hardcore than its predecessor.

Details of a powerful, special edition track-oriented car from Porsche have been leaked online. Porsche is known for bridging the gap between models, i.e., the Cayman has an output that fits between that of the Boxster and the 911 sportcar. Rumors of a more powerful model have actually been around for several months now but the specifications have only been leaked recently.

Porsche is reportedly working on a GT3 RS 4.0 that’s expected to provide about 500hp from the 4-liter flat-six -- bridging the gap between the GT3 RS and the GT3 Cup. It has an extra 50hp over the current GT3 RS, which is higher by 15 hp compared to the standard GT3.

In this spec sheet, we see that it has a €150,000 price tag before tax. It’s valued at €180,000 after 20 percent VAT. Even with the high price, this model is expected to sell quickly.

As we announced you earlier, Porsche unveiled the brand new 911 GT3 RS 4.0, a hardcore version of the already extreme 911 GT3 RS. Limited to 600 units, the new car features a four-litre displacement, which means it is the biggest 911 model line engine ever. The new engine delivers a maximum output of 368 kW (500 hp) at 8,250 revs per minute and an impressive 460 Nm of torque at 5,750 rpm.

With these numbers, the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds and to 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 12 seconds.

These performances are obtained thanks to new light weight components such as bucket seats, bonnet and front wings made of carbon fibre, plastic rear windows and weight-optimised carpets. The car has a total weight of 1,360 kilograms with a full tank of fuel and with 2.72 kg/hp, the 911 GT3 RS 4.0’s power-to-weight ratio thereby dips below the magical threshold of 3 kilograms per hp.

According to the latest reports from Dutch magazine AutoVisie, it appears that Porsche is currently planning a limited edition of the GT3 RS, called GT3 RS Limited Edition. Just like the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, which was unveiled last year, the new 911 GT3 RS will carry a 4.0-liter engine (the standard model is powered by a 3.8-liter engine) capable to deliver 500 hp. 500 is also the number of the all 911 GT3 RS produced.

Same sources confirmed the fact that the car will be introduced to the market in late July and it appears that it will be the last edition based on the current generation, as the all-new 911 will be introduced in September at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

For those who don’t know, standard 911 GT3 RS is powered by a 3.8-liter engine delivering 450 hp which means more than 118 bhp per litre from the six-cylinder, an extremely high figure for natural-aspiration technology even in the strictest worldwide comparison.

As it is, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS represents the climax of the development of the 911 for road use before the sports car maker turns its attention to the creation of performance-laden race cars just for the tracks. This newest offering from Porsche is the latest of the ingenuous sporting derivatives of the 911 homologated to be used on the road, especially by drivers having motorsport dreams.

The new 911 GT3 RS is in fact a high performance road-going machine – offering more power, lower weight, shorter transmission ratios as well as uprated body and suspension elements when compared to the 911 GT3. Moreover, Porsche has developed the new 911 GT3 RS as the homologation model for the racing variant of the 911 GT3.

It is powered by a 3.8-liter six-cylinder horizontally-opposed engine that develops up to 450 bhp (331 kW) of output and up to 430 Nm/317 lb.-ft. of torque at 6,750 rpm. Mated to a six-speed manual transmission, this powerplant is allowing the new 911 GT3 RS to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.0 seconds and reach a top speed of 310 km/h (192 mph).

Porsche ambassador Walter Rohrl, who has an impressive record as double world rally champion, will go up to participate in the Nurburgring 24-hour race in May 2010 in a standard new Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

This also marks Rohrl's return to Germany's largest automobile race since it last participated in 1993. From 1993 until today, Rohrl has conducted tests in every standard Porsche vehicle on the Nurburgring-Nordschleife.

Rohrl said that ever since, the new 911 GT3 RS had reminded him of a race vehicle. He stated that no other road-going 911 has ever been as close to a race car as this current GT3 RS.

After the German automaker unveiled a new 911 Speedster Concept on Friday, we are starting to think that Porsche’s long line of Speedster models could expand again. Just like the newest 911, the Speedster concept uses a familiar formula by chopping the windshield and position it at a more aggressive angle, get rid of the vestigial rear seats and add a new double bubble cover to replace the 911’s vestigial rear seats.

All this can be found in the Speedster Concept, with the latter item made of carbon fiber. Speedsters also often get rid of the electric roof. Porsche did not provide us with any photos of the lightweight cover on the Speedster Concept, but it did confirm that the unit will provide some weather protection.

Under the beltline, Porsche used the body of a 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet. But instead of using the 911’s traditional mirrors, we instead used a set of chromed, Talbot style racing mirrors, which are also probably the coolest mirrors on this planet. The rest of the body is then dressed in GT Silver and White paint, just like that of Porsche’s racers of yesteryear. On both sides, there is a huge number 70 in a white circle, which gives tribute to the automaker’s seventieth anniversary, below that, of course is the Porsche lettering. The automaker also modified the headlights with a cover that’s reminiscent of old racing headlights.

Late last year, on September 20, Porsche took the 911 GT2 RS to the Nurburgring in attempt to take down the lap record for the fastest production car around the ‘Ring, finishing in 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds. Now, it looks like its record could be broken again soon, this time by Lamborghini’s up and coming Aventador Superveloce Jota (SVJ). So does it have the goods to surpass the already impressive record?

We have been seeing a lot of spy shots of the said model as it is being tested in Sant’Agata Bolognese at the Green Hell but it looks like Lamborghini was there for another reason. According to those who witnessed it, the naturally aspirated V12 supercar managed to lap the ‘Ring in 6 minutes and 54 seconds or 6.7 seconds slower than the Porsche. However, they made it clear that the track conditions were less ideal then.

When the new Lamborghini attempted its run on the Green Hell, a number of other automakers were out on the track, so traffic was indeed a factor that affected its results. Aside from that, there was a section of the circuit that had a few cones, and this also took their toll on the SVJ’s lap time. But even with all the obstacles and the imperfect conditions, it was still able to finish in 6:54, which is a striking result. This probably means that in ideal conditions, the hardcore Aventador will drop below the 6:50 mark. Therefore, there’s a good chance for it to beat the Porsche 911 GT2 RS’s record.

Porsche recently decided that they will stick to their roots as long as they possibly could, and I mean as long as the market allows it. The automaker is assuring its buyers that it is still committed to rear-mounted, naturally aspirated engines as well as manual gearboxes despite the news circulating that the new 911 GT3 is allegedly gaining a turbocharged engine, while losing the manual gearbox.

Dr. Frank Steffen Walliser, Porsche’s head of GT motorsport and GT road cars, in his interview with Australian publication Drive during the Bathurst 12 Hour, denied reports of a fully turbocharged engine lineup.

The said engine lineup will likely be paired with an aluminum architecture shared with other cars like the Audi R8 and the Lamborghini Huracan. He added that a sports car will fit a normally aspirated engine, and that with a turbocharged engine, performance will be different. Furthermore, he states that the automaker will continue using naturally aspirated engines as long as they could.
