A real beast of a race, this Porsche 911 GT3 RS is driving its last tests on the Nürburgring circuit with a bang. Imposing spoiler, good-sized spoiler at the front, body-built wings, everything is made for performance. It is in particular its rear spoiler which is the most significant element of this new Porsche GT3 RS. It is mobile and its opening is modified according to what the driver is doing. Open when accelerating like a Formula 1 DRS to improve speed, closed when braking to get as much downforce as possible, also closed when cornering.
If the Porsche brand is actively working on its future electric cars by developing with Audi a PPE (Premium Platform Electric) platform dedicated to these vehicles, there is no question of 100% electric for the Porsche 911 and its variations at first. This icon could go through a hybrid episode (a prototype with this type of engine was surprised during tests on the Nürburgring) before being 100% electric, but this all-electric will probably not arrive before 2030. this is why the engine of the GT3 RS (type 992) that you are looking at runs on gasoline and it is still an atmospheric flat six. This new generation of GT3 RS has probably seen its engine undergo some changes so that it exceeds the 520 hp of the old Porsche GT3 RS (991) with a 4-litre engine. There is even talk of a rebore to 4.2 liters to allow the engine block to develop up to 580 hp.
As can be seen in the photos, Porsche does not skimp on the means to supply the engine with as much air as possible with air intakes in the rear fenders and above the engine cover and also to manage the downforce as well as possible. of his racing car so that it stays glued to the ground at any speed. There are large fins on either side of the car to improve directional stability, large clearance vents above the wheels to reduce the overpressure produced by the rotation of the wheels and thus increase downforce. on the front axle, air intakes on the hood to improve the ventilation of the braking system without disturbing the aerodynamics. And of course we also found the spoiler, spoiler, spoiler which are there to keep this car on the ground, which will easily exceed 300 km/h.
Like the previous generation, the chassis will adopt aggressive suspension settings, an active damping system, a fully variable electronically controlled rear differential lock, composite disc brakes, special sports tires and more. There will be everything to enjoy driving on the road and even better on a circuit. There are only a few weeks left before we discover the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS, this car could be unveiled this fall.
