911 GT3 RS

Drivers. Fans. Lovers of the true motorsport. Brace yourselves. And get ready. The race track is calling. More loudly than ever before. And with an intensity not felt for quite some time. Defensive? Routine? As if. Better to go on the attack. A challenge awaits, one that will push you beyond your comfort zone for a change. Where unfiltered fascination feels at home: in the chicane, in the banked turn, on the long straights.

Come on out, if you dare.

Before you stands a sports car of flesh and blood. Boasting a voluminous 4.0-litre six-cylinder horizontally opposed and naturally aspirated engine packing 383 kW (520 hp), mounted in the rear.

Its race track chassis will show you what it means to confront the tarmac head on. Eye for an eye. Lap after lap. The fixed rear wing is a flagrant provocation to do battle. To the opponent. And to the opposing headwind. The rear silencer as well as the tailpipes in titanium are a visible sign of what the new 911 GT3 RS is promising: unadulterated sound, pure performance, and a challenge that nobody whose heart beats for sports cars can shy away from.

So, what it is to be? Chicken out – or fight?
The new 911 GT3 RS. Challengers wanted.

Interior

Interior

You feel awe before you get in ... then satisfaction afterwards. In the cockpit of the new 911 GT3 RS, it soon becomes clear what it’s all about. Optimum ergonomics. Information that is quick to process. Sporty purism – of the kind that does not prohibit the driver from concentrating on the road ahead.

Instruments
The instrument cluster speaks a clear language. Porsche language, to be precise. Five round instruments with the rev counter in the centre. The dial of the titanium-coloured rev counter is marked with the ‘GT3 RS’ logo. The other dial faces are in black, with needles and increment markings in yellow.

Directly next to the rev counter is a high-resolution 4.6-inch touchscreen display. Its multifunction display lets the driver see data from the on-board computer. Viewable information includes engine power, longitudinal and lateral acceleration (g-force), Tyre Pressure Monitoring (TPM) values, information on communication and audio settings, or the map of the navigation system.

Engine

Engine

Time and time again, the cynics would have you believe that the potential of a six-cylinder horizontally opposed and naturally aspirated engine mounted in the rear has been exhausted. And our engineers? They smile. And prove over and over again the exact opposite.

For the new 911 GT3 RS, the specs read as follows: naturally aspirated engine, 4.0-litre displacement, high-revving concept. A maximum power output of 383 kW (520 hp) – 20 hp higher than that of the predecessor model. Maximum torque 470 Nm, i.e. 10 Nm more than before. Up to 9,000 rpm on the rev counter makes it clear what we mean by a high-revving concept.

As a result, the new 911 GT3 RS with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds and top speed isn’t reached until 312 km/h.

Especially robust and high-performing, the engine is based on that of the 911 GT3 Cup. Also derived from motorsport is the oil supply principle, which uses a separate engine oil tank, fully variable oil pressure pump and an additional supply of oil via the crankshaft.

Four valves per cylinder with cam followers and a rigid valve train is another concept matured on the race track. The engine block and cylinder heads are made of aluminium, the titanium connecting rods have been forged and, thanks to VarioCam, the camshaft timing is precisely matched to the engine speed and load.

Direct fuel injection (DFI)
As far as the efficiency of the engine – and its power output – is concerned, direct fuel injection (DFI) makes a decisive contribution. And it does so with millisecond precision and a pressure of up to 200 bar. For optimum mixture formation and combustion in the combustion chamber.

High-revving concept
The valves are operated by cam followers – another principle from motorsport. Clearance compensation between the camshafts and valves of the new 911 GT3 RS is realised not by hydraulic means, but by shim plates as part of a solid arrangement. This provides greater robustness as well as enabling remarkably high engine speeds and hard use on the race track.

Dry-sump lubrication
The way in which oil is supplied to the engine is also successfully proven in motorsport. Continued lubrication is vital, especially at very high engine speeds of up to 9,000 rpm and under the effects of the extremely high lateral and longitudinal acceleration that can be experienced on the race track. Seven scavenge pumps in total return the engine oil quickly and efficiently to the external oil tank.

Together with the oil pressure pump offering fully variable displacement, optimum oil pressure is assured in all operating conditions. This system provides reliable lubrication of hard-working components and increases the robustness of the engine under hard use on the race track. The efficient defoaming of the oil by a centrifuge before it is delivered to the separate oil tank is a solution originating in high-performance motorsport and is also used in a similar form in the Porsche 919 Hybrid, an LMP1 class competitor.

Intake manifold
In interaction with the sports exhaust system, the variable intake manifold in synthetic material and featuring two switchable resonance flaps helps to ensure efficient gas cycles. This results in an impressive torque curve, a high maximum torque and high power output across a broad engine speed range.

GT3 RS Steering wheel

GT3 RS Steering wheel

Change gear like a motorsport professional – the GT3 RS Sports steering wheel is manually adjustable for height and reach and its gearshift paddles offer short, sporty shift actions. Gearshifts are even more direct and precise as a result. The steering wheel rim in black Alcantara® is easy to grip and remains in firm hands even on sporty drives. Pointing the way: the coloured top centre marking.

Seats

Seats

Part of the standard specification: full bucket seats in carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) with a carbon-weave finish. Not only do they look sporty and provide good lateral support, they also offer a height adjustment function, enabling the full bucket seat to be positioned 30 mm lower or 20 mm higher. Height adjustment is electrically powered, while the fore/aft position is manually adjustable. These seats are upholstered in black leather with perforated seat centres in black Alcantara® – or, as an option, Lizard Green. Through the aeration holes in the seat centre shimmers a second layer of fabric in black. The ‘GT3 RS’ logos embroidered on the headrests are in GT Silver.

Sports bucket seats*
An optional alternative: bucket seats with folding backrest for easier access to the rear compartment, integrated thorax airbag and manual fore/aft adjustment for the driver and passenger. The seat shells are made from glass- and carbonfibre reinforced plastic with a carbon-weave finish. The backrest pivot points are positioned high in the side bolsters – allowing very good lateral support even in the pelvic region.

The seats are upholstered in black leather with seat centres in perforated Alcantara® in black or, alternatively, Lizard Green including headrests with the ‘GT3 RS’ logo in GT Silver.

Adaptive Sports seats Plus
Available as an alternative, adaptive Sports seats Plus blend sport with comfort and are suitable for everyday driving or the race track. They feature side bolsters in leather, seat centres in black Alcantara® and the ‘GT3 RS’ logo embroidered on the headrests in GT Silver. Here, again, seat centres in Lizard Green are available on request. Offering 18-way electric adjustment, the seats can be optimally adapted to meet your needs in terms of seat height, squab and backrest angle, seat depth, fore/aft adjustment and four-way lumbar support. The side bolsters on the seat surface and backrest can be individually adjusted for precision lateral support on winding roads and added comfort on long journeys.
