Top 3 Things to Look Forward to in the New Porsche 911 GT3 RS
After unveiling the new Porsche 911 GT3 at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, we are in for another treat again from the German automaker. Latest spy shots reveal that a Porsche 911 GT3 RS is in the works.
What have we learned so far and what can we expect from the upcoming sports car? Here are the top three things to look forward to when it comes out in the market:
1. Design Changes
From the looks of it, the next 911 GT3 RS is just a cosmetically enhanced version of the 911 GT3. The car has wider fenders with new air intakes at the rear part, revised front bumper, updated headlamps and added vents on the hood.
The interior of the 911 GT3 RS might see subtle upgrades compared to the standard 911 GT3. It’s hard to tell for now basing from the angle the spy pictures were taken. It should get new sporty leather trims as well as new pedals and steering wheel.
2. Engine Boost
The major change should come from the sports car’s power unit. Currently, the 911 GT3 is packing 500 hp. The 911 GT3 RS is expected to get an extra 20 hp to 40 hp in its flat-six engine compared to its standard version. The power of the car will probably be complemented with a manual transmission gearbox to attain optimum performance.
Looking at the spy images, the prototype is almost in its final stage of development. Therefore, the possible debut of the vehicle is in September of this year. The likely venue for its world premiere is at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, since that is the major auto show coinciding with that period.
