We got a new Porsche 911 GT3, a new GT2 RS, and we’ve come circle back to the new 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, which is now the most powerful naturally aspirated road-legal 911 ever painted this alarming shade of lime green.
The 2019 GT3 RS has been upgraded to 520 horsepower and 346 lb-ft of torque from the same-old flat-six engine good for up to 9,000 rpm. The car is 0.1 second quicker than the old GT3 RS to 60 mph, which now happens in just three seconds. It’s only available with a PDK transmission. The car also gets front brake cooling and new ball joints inspired by the GT2 RS, and a tweaked rear-steering system.
The news today just basically confirms everything we found out about the car last week here, but now with pricing details!
The starting price for the 911 GT3 RS is only $187,500, but then there’s a $1,050 delivery charge, so that’s $188,550.
And then, if you want, you can option the Weissach package, which swaps the roof, steering wheel trim, shift paddles and front and rear sway bars and coupling rods with carbon fiber bits for reduced weight, costing an additional $18,000. So that’s now $206,550.
And then, if you want to spend more, you can option the the magnesium wheels that will save 25 pounds of weight for just $13,000. Fully kitted, with no mention of any special paint cost to replace the lime green pictured, is so far around $219,550. Orders are open and deliveries are expected to begin in the fall.
