It’s time for a new GT3 RS, that’s what. Though you might suspect a marketing hand in here, I’m pleased to say it’s all to do with racing. More specifically Porsche needs to build this car to homologate the track-only RSR model for GT racing.
How perceptive. But did you notice the wider rear track? The stock GT3, in common with all two-wheel drive 911s, is 44mm narrower across the back than its all-wheel drive cousins. For extra grip and stability on track though, the RS version gets the wider arches allowing a wider track. The rear spoiler is unique too, the rear cage has more cross bracing and the rear window is made from plastic. All in, the RS cuts 20kg from the GT3’s weight for a 1375kg total.
