New Porsche 911 GT3 RS Teased, Will Debut 17 August 2022
A new Porsche 911 GT3 RS is coming next month.
When it comes to supercars, few brands come close to perfection as Porsche. And when it comes to Porsche, few models come close to the desirability of the 911. And when it comes to variants of the 911, nothing is as fast as the 911 GT3 RS. This is the most track-optimised version of the 911 that first debuted in 2003 on the 996-generation. The RS moniker stands for RennSport or ‘racing sport’. These models tend to get lightweight parts, better brakes and a revised engine.
While the current 992-era Porsche 911 already has a GT3 model out and about, there still isn’t a GT3 RS model. That will change on the 17th of August 2022. The 2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS was teased ahead of this global reveal. Not much was revealed besides a few photos of the car under a black wrap but Porsche says this new version takes inspiration from the 911 RSR and the 911 GT3 R GT racing cars.
Porsche also indicated that the vehicle will have an output of approximately 500 horses, which they say is ideal for track days. The engine powering the 2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS will be a 4.0L 6-cylinder boxer. High responsiveness and high revs are being promised. The biggest focus this time around was on aerodynamics and chassis development.
Stay tuned on the 17th of August 2022 when Porsche will drop all the details on their latest ‘ultimate performance machine’.
Here’s the press release with more.
The Porsche 911 GT3 is getting a big brother: the 911 GT3 RS, the new top of the 911 line in terms of performance will celebrate its world premiere on 17 August. The development of the high-performance sports car was inspired by the successful 911 RSR and 911 GT3 R GT racing cars.
“The new 911 GT3 RS is even more optimised for track use than its predecessors. The spontaneously responsive, high-revving four-litre, six-cylinder boxer engine with approximately 500 PS has proven ideal for use at trackdays and club sport events,” says Andreas Preuninger, Director GT Model Line. “That’s why we focused primarily on aerodynamics and chassis questions in the development of the new 911 GT3 RS.”
