Porsche fans, hold your breath because there is a new one coming, it is the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It will be using a new engine, a new transmission and it will be still elegant and eye catching, because, it is still a Porsche.

Many rumors have been said about the GT3 RS, but one thing is sure, is that is will be breath taking, engine displacement will be 3.8L or 4.0L generating 500 bhp. It will be a flat six, naturally aspirated engine. Porsche people are coming up with a new engine, for a better management of power and torque. While addressing Auto Express, Porsche R&D boss, Wolfgang Hatz said “Performance has to be the main objective. Customers love the current GT3. The RS has to be the peak. The 991 GT3 was very much a surprise for everybody because it’s a very usable car for every day. The GT3 RS will be more extreme.” He made sure that the car will come with a PDK dual-clutch 7-speed automatic transmission, yet, Porsche did not completely rule out the idea of a manual transmission. Hatz said that the turbocharged engines will be used on models like the Cayman, the Carrera, or the 912, but the GT3 RS is to keep a naturally aspirated engine.

There are noticeable changes on the body, the car has larger intakes for instance, a new front splitter, big fender grill, an improved rear spoiler as a bigger rear wing and heat extractors will be all part of the new aero kit the GT3 RS will be receiving. It is certain that the car will go in a severe diet to lose weight, in order to improve power-to-weight ratio.

The Porsch GT3 RS will be going after two main records, one made by the old model 7 min and 25 sec, and the other is made by Porsche Hyper-insanely-beautiful-car the 918, 6 min and 57 seconds, all around the all mighty Nürburgring. We will have to wait until March to have the GT3 RS revealed completely.
