New Porsche 911 GT3 RS

The Most Sporting Road-Going 911

- 443 bhp (331kw)
- extra-large carbon-fibre rear wing
- wider track
- PASM
- New Tyre Sizes


Porsche GT3 RS Microsite
http://www.porsche.com/microsite/911gt3rs/uk.aspx

Stuttgart. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is sending the new 911 GT3 RS to the starting line: Delivering even more engine power, offering lower weight, and featuring shorter transmission ratios as well as body and suspension elements upgraded to an even higher standard, the new 911 GT3 RS sets the foundation for homologating the racing version of the 911 GT3 and therefore offers everything it takes for ongoing success on the race track, continuing the series of absolutely uncompromising, sporting 911s homologated for the road.

The heart of the new 911 GT3 RS, the power unit, is based on the engine already featured in the 911 GT3. Like the latter, the RS power unit now displaces 3.8 instead of 3.6 litres, delivering even more power and revving up even faster and more dynamically.

The engine featured in the new 911 GT3 RS delivers 15 bhp more than its counterpart in the 911 GT3, that is maximum output of 450 horsepower from the fast-revving naturally-aspirated power unit. This means specific output of more than 118 bhp per litre from the six-cylinder, an extremely high figure for natural-aspiration technology even in the strictest worldwide comparison. And unlike many other high-performance engines, the power unit in the new 911 GT3 RS remains fully suitable for everyday use.

The new 911 GT3 RS comes exclusively with a six-speed manual gearbox optimised for short gearshift travel, low weight and high efficiency. To enhance the level of performance throughout the entire range of engine and road speed, the gears come with a shorter transmission ratio than on the 911 GT3, deliberately making concessions in terms of even higher top speed.

To further improve its sporting behaviour, the new 911 GT3 RS comes for the first time with a purpose-built and specially set up PASM suspension, with wider track not only at the rear, but also on the front axle. Accordingly, the body of the new 911 GT3 RS is wider not only at the rear, but also at the front through the use of additional wheel arch covers.

The front axle comes with nine-inch-wide wheels running on 245/35 ZR 19 sports tyres, the rear axle features twelve-inch-wide wheels incorporating 325/30 ZR 19 sports tyres.

The dynamic engine mounts featured as standard also serve to improve the car’s driving dynamics to an even higher level. Depending on driving conditions, the mounts change in their stiffness and damping effect, improving the connection between the engine and the body when driving under very dynamic conditions.

As yet a further point the car’s aerodynamics develop even more downforce than on the GT3, again benefiting the qualities of the car on the race track. Racing qualities are also why Porsche is introducing another new option in 2010, a lithium-ion battery delivered with the car and, replacing the conventional lead battery, reducing weight by more than 10 kg or 22 lb.

The new 911 GT3 RS shows its close connection to motorsport also through the dynamic looks of the car borne out in particular by its low ride height, the new, extra-large carbon-fibre rear wing with its specifically designed wing supports made of aluminium, the characteristic dual tailpipes on the extra-light titanium sports exhaust, as well as special front and rear parts exclusive to this model.

Sales of the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS are starting in Germany in January 2010. The Euro base-price is Euro 122,400.- without value-added tax and national specifications.

Phew, thought I'd be upset I'd gone for the GT3 but not sure I like any of those colour combos!

Oh, and on the microsite the picture for the PCM option shows heated seats buttons Smile

Not keen on the graphics, door-pull, nor the blue/gold (Subaru?) color combo.

I like the duck-tail rear spoiler tho. Don't mind having that on my C2S. Very Happy

...somebody tell them(Porsche GB) that the car looks brilliant(exc rear spoiler) and those graphics are just horrendous Sad

What on earth were they thinking about...eh! Whoever did/allowed this on a GT should get a severe bollocking at HQ and sent back to design school.

That rear spoiler is dodgy looking too....straight out of the Halfords order book Surprised

Have they lost the plot with this one or what?

I wish I could drive like him, brown paper bag or not. Mr. Green
The way he holds the car sidways threw corners is amasing Thumb

The two living sportspersons I admire the most are:

Lance Armstrong and Walter Rohl worship worship

It will be a sad day when both decide to take up the easy life...ie doing the garden, playing golf, wearing lots of beige and mystery tour bus trips Grin

I'd take the dark grey, have all of the graphics removed, have all of the accent colours (mirrors, end plates on the wing, hideous nose) replaced with black and have the black side graphics from the gen 1 RS put on it.

Sorted.

Interior looks great but those front wheelarch extensions are straight off a mondeo st220, they do not look right, be better off going the pop-rivetted look like the 993 gt2!
