Porsche has taken the wraps off the new 911 GT3 RS, and it generates twice as much downforce as the outgoing model. Road-legal was the first term in Porsche’s press release announcing the debut of the 992-Generation 911 GT3 RS, aptly so because, at first glance, the new GT3 RS looks like a track-only monster from all perceivable angles. It looks obviously 911, but almost every little detail about its exterior screams excess.

The rear wing is the most significant visual differentiator of the 911 GT3 RS from the other mere mortal 911s. In this generation, the wing has grown considerably in dimensions, making it the largest one to be put on a 911.

There is a lot of aero trickery happening on the with the RS. Porsche has removed the three radiators from the car and replaced them with a single sizeable tilted radiator, which now sits under the hood, nullifying luggage space.

The car now gets enormous nostrils. This has freed up a lot of real estate along the car’s sides, allowing space for active aero bits, which all contribute to adding overall downforce and enhancing cornering ability. And since that was not sufficient for Porsche, they have also designed the wishbone suspensions to have a teardrop-like shape since a lot of air flows through the wheel arches, and according to Porsche, this only has added as much as 40 kgs of downforce.

The GT3 RS has a radiator under the hood, giving it huge nostrils and creating an exclusive look.

Speaking of the rear wing, it is a groundbreaking unit. For the first time in the history of Porsche, it has fitted a rear wing on a production car that is even taller than the roof of the car itself! The large wing adds a lot of downforces and takes the total downforce figure of the GT3 RS up to 409 kg at 200 kmph and a whopping 860 kg at a full chat of 285 kmph. At these speeds in a straight line, the wing is more of a hindrance than an aid, which is why Porsche has equipped the rear wing with a Formula 1 style DRS (Drag Reduction System). For all the non-F1 fans, what this does is it flattens the back wing at the push of a button with the top mutable element opening up, allowing air to pass through the wing and dropping drag.

The GT3 RS generates up to 409 kg downforce at 200 kmph & 860 kg downforce at 285 kmph.

Under hard braking, the wing automatically closes, creating an airbrake, similar to what an airplane does when it lands. Not that the 408 mm diameter front brakes and the 380 mm back brakes are not effective on their own. Moreover, Porsche also sells Ceramic brakes as an option, which is also larger in diameter (410 mm front & 390 mm rear).

Pushing the 1,450 kg carbon-fiber cladded vehicle is a 4.0-liter six-cylinder naturally aspirated boxer engine which spools up to 9,000 rpm and develops 518 bhp in the process. It is mated to Porsche’s PDK dual-clutch seven-speed auto gearbox. A manual gearbox is not offered on the GT3 RS, as the tracking tool is about lap times, and a manual would slow it down compared to the typical 911 GT3 to aid rushing in all seven gears. This helps boost the car to 100 kmph from a standstill in just 3.2 seconds and to a top speed of 296 kmph.

The new GT3 RS delay is electronically adaptable on the go and can be controlled using the rotary dials on the steering wheel.

The 992-generation 911 GT3 RS is predictable to launch soon in India, and the prices for the car will begin upwards of Rs. 3 crore (Ex-showroom). The car also gets an elective Weissach package, which includes a carbon-weave finish on the front lid, roof, parts of the back wing, & upper shell of the outer mirrors.
