RS models are always a little more eye-catching, so expect some special centerlock wheels and vibrant paint options. Under the hood, there’ll be a tweaked version of the 911 GT3‘s 4.0-liter boxer-six that produces 502 horsepower and 346 lb-ft of torque, an incremental increase over the last GT3, and revs all the way to 9,000 rpm.
Typically, the GT3 RS is focused on improving handling, so expect little more than a 20-horsepower gain from the new RS. A sub-four-second 0-60 mph time will be easily achievable thanks to a PDK dual-clutch automatic. Will a manual be offered? It wasn’t on the last version, and conflicting reports lean in both directions, so we’ll have to wait to see if Porsche returns to offering the engaging gearbox or if the RS will be exclusively focused on quickness and speed.
