2015 Porsche 911 (991) GT3 RS scale model shows up

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.

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).

Would you buy this 1:4 scale Amalgam Bugatti Chiron engine for $9,365?

Have you ever wondered what you can you buy with $9,365 in your pocket? Well, you have quite a lot of options. In fact, you can even purchase a used vehicle and perhaps modify it to build a super fast car. On the other hand, you can get this scale model of the Bugatti Chiron’s powertrain.

This 1:4 scale model of Chiron’s 8.0 liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine and seven-speed dual clutch transmission is created and built by Amalgam. The real powertrain, on the other hand, measures 18 inches long and nine inches high.

You are probably wondering what makes it so expensive. Well, Amalgam claims that they took 2500 hours just to design everything, and that does not even include building it. Building each example took them around 220 hours using a total of 1,040 individual pieces.

We are all aware that Audi has plans to reveal the 2018 A7 Sportback soon, specifically towards the end of the year. Though we expected a grand reveal and a full-sized vehicle, we were surprised by something much smaller - that is, a die cast scale model of the Sportback.

What just happened? Well, Autoweek.nl has leaked an image of the A7 Sportback, except it isn’t the real car. Rather, it is a scale model, which makes it much smaller than what all of us expected to see. Of course, this can’t beat the awesomeness of the real model. In earlier spy shots, the A7 and S7 will have a design that mixes together elements from the first-generation car combined with the Prologue series of concept cars.

Though the leaked image just shows a scale model, we could still kind of tell how the A7 Sportback will look. The A7’s face resembles that of the A8, and we already know that based on the spy shots we have seen before. What’s new is the fact that the scale model shows us a more sculpted hood and more body lines. The A7 has a wider single-frame grille, thin headlights backed with an array of LEDs, and more glass on the sides.

The Ferrari 812 Superfast may be one of the fastest cars you’ve seen or will ever see in the automotive industry. Given its 6.5 liter V12 engine, the Superfast can carry out as much as 800 horsepower (588 kilowatts) and 530 pound feet of torque. It can also do the 0-100 kilometers per hour sprint in just 2.9 seconds before hitting its 211 miles per hour (340 kph) maximum speed. But the reason why it can perform that well, and fast is because of its sleek design.

Ignacio Albera was the man behind the 812 Superfast when it comes to the design. The model first made its debut earlier this year at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show as the successor of the F12Berlinetta. This example went through several and extensive aerodynamic testing that includes going through the wind tunnel, and now the company is putting this scale model up for auction as it heads to the RM Sotheby’s Leggenda E Passione sale.

The 812 Superfast scale model that is being offered to the public does not have the V12 engine. It also doesn’t have the drivetrain and the steering wheel. This scale model had been finished in hand-sculpted carbon fiber and some “prototype materials”. So why would history buffs and collectors want it? This half-scale model was used when the 812 Superfast car was being developed. That included testing of computational fluid dynamics results in the wind tunnel. Furthermore, it maintains its original modularity that was used to optimize the aerodynamic properties of the body.

Nissan’s GT-R Nismo is one of the most expensive cars the Japanese automaker has made in its history, the 200 mile-per-hour supercar is not like any other Nissan car that everybody can get their hands on. However, Lego has fulfilled our dreams to own one to a certain extent, by designing a small-scale version of the Nismo supercar. The nice thing about this is that you do not have to know how to drive to own one.

It was Firas Abu-Jaber, an expert brick builder, who came up with the Lego version of the GT-R Nismo. The reason why he built this was because it is a favourite car of his, so he took time and studied the supercar, and went into proper detail - from the front fascia, wheels, the rear, and even under the hood, to start his project. What he built was so detailed that he even replicated the GT-R’s engine.

As usual, Firas made use of the red Technic gear pieces to add details like the tail lights according to The Brothers Brick website. As you open the hood, the doors, and the roof, you will find some pretty cool detailing inside like a full on interior. This brick model might be of interest to you, but you won’t be able to get this from your local Lego store as it is not an official kit.

Amalgam Collection, started in 1985 is known for creating perfect scale replicas of modern cars. Owned by England’s leading architects, the company works with the manufacturer and their design team while using original CAD data to perfect the work of the exterior and interior details of the replicas.

Amalgam Collection could easily be compared with the makers of fine watches like Richard Mille, as they put passion into car modelling more than everybody else - and we can see this through the precision and the accuracy of each replica they make. This is the reason why we put an emphasis on the word “perfect”.

The company based in Bristol, England, announced that they have something special for the upcoming 70th anniversary of Ferrari. To be more precise, they don’t have one, but 350 “something specials” instead. So what are these surprises you ask? These limited edition mini-Ferraris with 70 colour combinations and designs from Ferrari’s history are simply to die for. The five modern models that will be replicated are: the 488 GTB, 488 Spider, California T, F12 Berlinetta, and the GTC4 Lusso.

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.

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.

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.
