Few subjects are as sore among the Porsche faithful as the company’s refusal to put a manual transmission in the current 991 generation of their mad track weapon, the 911 GT3 RS. Now one heroic owner is doing what Porsche should have done from the factory by putting a manual transmission into his own 991.1 GT3 RS.
It’s the worst nightmare of car enthusiasts everywhere. A member of the Porsche forum Rennlist left his 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS at the Bob Hindson Racing shop in Kansas City, Missouri, to have new headers, exhaust and a tune installed, but the shop owner hit a building while out on a drive and totaled the prized…
Porsche 911s are known for being good in foul weather thanks to the weight of the engine pressing down on its rear drive wheels. However, that unusual engine placement also makes the car one big pendulum that wants to go butt-forward all the time. Here’s how tough it was to drive on the ice of this year’s Rallye Monte…
I, once upon a time, got stuck watching a SEAT chase down an Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio mule on the Nürburgring for three and half days. I only snapped out of it when my roommate invited me to Taco Bell. Now there’s video of a McLaren 675LT chasing down a Porsche 911 GT3 RS, so I guess I’ll be busy.
We already knew Lego’s new Porsche 911 GT3 RS Technic set weighed in at a whopping 2,704 pieces, and measures almost two feet long when fully constructed. But the complex build takes so long that even an accelerated timelapse video of it being assembled is still over 25 minutes. But it’s not like you have anything…
Lego just officially confirmed that its massive 2,704-piece Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS set will be available on June 1 for the hefty sum of $300. Originally teased at the Nuremberg Toy Fair wearing dazzle camo to hide its curves and final design, the creation is quite simply a work of art.
When I first saw the picture, I just assumed that the Gulf-liveried Porsche 911 GT3 RS was getting a little drink since, you know, Porsches are water-cooled now. Apparently, that’s not the procedure for filling the radiator tank, though, and this brand-new €250,000 car somehow just rolled into the water. Oops.
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?
