2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS spied for the first time

Here we have our first spy shots of the hottest 911 for the track and road, the new 911 GT3 RS.

The prototype is largely undisguised, revealing a large fixed rear wing, aggressive aerodynamics, widened track, larger lip on the front spoiler, modified bumpers and huge wheels.

Other changes we can expect compared to the standard 911 GT3 include weight reduction, updated chassis and of course extra power.

The standard 911 GT3 packs 468bhp from a naturally-aspirated 3.8-litre flat 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.

The new RS model is expected to produce at least 500bhp.

The rear fender air intakes are also a bit confusing, so some have pointed out what if this is the new GT2, while the centrally placed air-exhaust clearly suggests it is the GT3 model. We’ll see soon!

Porsche 911 GT3 has been on the market for some time now and recently there have been issues with some of them catching fire. Porsche has now informed the owners of the affected vehicles directly and is recommending that they stop using their vehicles, offering to pick up the vehicles and take them to a Porsche Centre immediately.

Hopefully the hot RS model won’t be having any of these issues when it arrives in the near future.
