2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS patent photos unveil the real deal

The new 991 generation Porsche 911 GT3 has been on the market for some time, but due to some major engine issues, the hot RS has been delayed a bit and is expected to arrive later this year or in early 2015.

We have seen plenty of spy photos and now we are bringing you patent photos, courtesy of CAR, showing the track-oriented GT3 RS without all the camouflage.

Previous prototypes have been spotted with very little disguise, but the patent photos give us a very good look at the little details like the front air dam, small air inlet on the bonnet, big air intakes in the rear fenders and a good look at the rear wing with a ducktail underneath. Also the bubbled roof is clearer and there are also fender gills behind the front wheels that we haven’t seen before.

The standard 911 GT3 is powered by a naturally-aspirated 468bhp 3.8-litre flat six engine mated to 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.

The RS version will obviously pack more power, but how much more is something that very few people outside Porsche probably know. Our guess is around 500bhp. Not bad for a naturally-aspirated engine.
