Here’s a fresh take on the Porsche 911 GT3 RS during its testing at the Nüburgring Nordschleife. There is still a bit of coating on the body, but that can’t hide how aggressive the machine looks.
From the front, the RS gains massive openings on the hood that are even more prominent than the slits on the nose of the standard GT3. In addition, there is black tape on the corners of the fenders in front of the brakes. This suggests the presence of brake cooling ducts.
Engineers install large air vents on the front fenders. At first glance, they are even bigger than those of the previous generation RS.
There is more black tape on the rear fenders. The location indicates that the company is trying to hide entries there, such as those for the current 911 Turbo.
The back of the roof has two vertical bands along the edges. These parts are likely to aid the aerodynamics of the vehicle, possibly by channeling air to the fender.
Speaking of which, the massive fender on the rear deck is one of the GT3 RS’s most obvious styling cues. A previous spy video shows he’s capable of active adjustments to maximize the efficiency of the room. The ribs on the trunk lid direct air to the engine.
Under the tail there is a large diffuser. A pair of circular exhaust pipes come out of the center.
There is a heavy safety cage visible through the window. The driver is in a heavily reinforced Recaro racing seat.
The GT3 RS would use a 4.0-liter flat-six engine. The previous generation RS develops 520 horsepower (383 kilowatts) and the new one is said to have a small power bump. The mill would run at 9500 rpm.
We expect the new GT3 RS to debut in late 2021 or early 2022. Deliveries are expected to begin in 2022.
