2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS continues testing on the Nürburgring

Back in February we brought you the first spy shots of the new Porsche 911 (991 series) GT3 RS.

Testing continues and here are the latest spy shots, showing the new 911 GT3 RS where it really belongs – a race track.

Spied on the Nürburgring, the 911 GT3 RS prototype reveals a huge fixed rear wing, larger lip on the front spoiler, modified bumpers and updates to the bonnet and roof.

The side air intakes look like they are straight from the 911 Turbo and will be changed once the production model is revealed.

Compared to the standard GT3, the RS model rides on a wider wheelbase with a harder suspension, while also being lighter thanks.

The 911 GT3 is powered by a naturally-aspirated 468bhp 3.8-litre flat six engine mated to Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) double-clutch gearbox, with power sent to high-traction rear-wheel drive, enabling it to hit 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds, while the top speed is 195mph.

In the 911 GT3 RS the same engine is likely tuned to around 500bhp.

The new 911 GT3 had some major issues with the engine as some of the cars caught fire and Porsche will fix the issue with a complete engine swap, meaning the launch of the new RS model could take little longer.
