Porsche 911 GT3 RS: the ultimate 911 uncovered

The 992 has arrived, but we’re still waiting to see the latest 911 in its final form. Porsche has been teasing its design since 2019 – but now our spy photographers have caught a glimpse of the ultimate naturally-aspirated 911.

These pictures show the most extreme version of the 992 you’ll find – and the prototype shown seems to feature some RSR DNA anyway. This is the most undisguised we’ve seen the new 911 GT3 RS.

The car shown features classic GT3 signatures such as centre-lock wheels and central-exit dual exhaust; but it also boasts some serious aero bits: At the front, Porsche engineers have given the RS huge bonnet-mounted outlets, and at the rear a rear diffuser combines with a racing-style swan-neck mounted rear wing. Look at those endplates!

Add the wider-than-stock body, and some significant aero around the front and rear-wheels, and this looks a lot like the RSR that just won Le Mans’ GTE class.

We’re expecting the flat-six in the GT3 RS to put out something north of the Speedster’s 503bhp, and channel it through a PDK-only box, like the current car.
