No music. No British car reviewer screaming in your ear about steering feel. No commentary whatsoever. It’s just the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS, flat out.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is one of the most hyped cars of 2015, but I’m not buying this whole idea.
You can only drive a 911 GT3 RS properly on a public road if you manage to wake up earlier than the people who start bloviating on the radio at 6 AM. But Evo’s latest proves that it’s worth doing for the sound alone.
The scene is Weissach, Porsche’s legendary and also intimidating proving ground. There’s a 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and inside is Chris Harris—a man who hates flappy paddles and has just two hours to distill the essence of Porsche’s most evolved 911. It’s is a brutally fast machine, considering it is a hold-out…
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It’s one of the most anticipated cars of the year. Just how great is it? It’s really great, as our man Chris Harris just found out.
[Yes that’s Mark Webber of F1, Le Mans, and helmet-puking fame caning a new 991 Porsche 911 GT3 RS around the Nürburgring. Bridge To Gantry got this shot and has more pictures right here along with some extra info.]
The 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS has a 4.0 with 500 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque, a lighter body and a top speed of 198 mph. The 2016 Ruf RGT has a 4.2 with 525 horsepower and 369 lb-ft, a lighter body, and a top speed of 200 mph. Plus a manual, and the widest rear tires Michelin makes.
The 997-generation Porsche 911 GT3 RS is one of the cars that makes us drool on our pillows at night. Sharkwerks does a conversion that gives it a 4.1 liter engine and a ton more power. Here's what that looks like when drifting.
4.0 liters. 493 horsepower. 3.3 seconds to 60. 198 MPH top speed. This is the lighter, faster, louder, and more raucous 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Just look at how cool this is.
The new 4.0 liter, 493 horsepower Porsche 911 GT3 RS is here, in all of its glory.
No, we don't have pictures of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS (though we have seen it before). But what we do have are the specs. How does a 4.0 liter flat-six with 500 horsepower, seven-speed PDK, wider wheels, a wider body, and lightweighting sound to you?
Porsche is looking forward to the official launch of the 2015 911 GT3 RS, likely after stuffing car writers with so much wine and shrimp that they think going automatic-only makes sense. Screw that. Here's how the car looks in the raw, unfiltered wild.
Joe Rogan doesn't just own a Porsche 911 GT3 RS, he owns a Sharkwerks tuned GT3 RS, and there's one detail about it that gets sports cars so very right.
Just look at this. This is a road car. But if you didn't know that, seeing and hearing it going around a race track would make you think it's a pure bred race car. But instead, it's the 911 GT3 RS. It has a PDK transmission, it doesn't sound turbocharged, and it'll be incredible.
With the recent bruhaha surrounding the engines of the Porsche 911 GT3, we seem to have forgotten that there's a GT3 RS coming. Is this it leaked in scale model form? Because it looks damn amazing. And wait, are those intercooler inlets we see?
The small North Carolina town of Weddington lives its days cowering in fear, listening intently for the onslaught of a local villain. A monster is on the loose, terrifying all who come upon it. Yes, friends, it is that which we are all afraid of – a random dude in a Porsche 911 GT3RS. Repent! Repent!
There are two reasons why you have to get a loaner vehicle: Either you're far away from your own car, or something's happened to said car and it's in the shop. Chances are, if something's happened to your car, you aren't in good shape, either. Thus, an ouch loaner is in order.
