The 911 GT3 RS brings out more detailed dynamic performance

The 911 GT3 RS, the first track car of the 911 series, has many outstanding performances in motorsport, and at the same time it can be driven legally on the road. The 911 GT3 RS lapped the 20.8-kilometer Nordschleife circuit in 6:49.328, 10.6 seconds faster than the current 911 GT3. Compared to the 911 GT3, the engine has been further developed in a 4.0 rev design, increasing output to 386 kW (525 PS). The 911 GT3 RS accelerates from zero to 100km/h in just 3.2 seconds, and can reach a top speed of 296 km/h in 7th gear. The 911GT3 RS offers three driving modes: Normal, Sport and Track. In track mode, the basic settings, the rebound of the front and rear axles and the rear drive differential can all be adjusted individually.

The 911GT3 RS pays homage to active aerodynamics

For the first time, Porsche has installed the adjustable rear wing function (DRS) on a series-produced sports car. For low drag and higher speeds on the track’s straights, DRS allows the rear wing to be flattened at the push of a button within a specific operating range. When braking hard at high speeds, the airbrake function is activated: the front and rear adjustable aerodynamic components are set to their maximum, creating an aerodynamic deceleration effect that significantly assists the wheels in stopping.

The design of the 911 GT3 RS offers functionality and agile handling, both externally and internally. The interior is in typical RS style: black leather, Racetex fabric and polished carbon fiber panels give it a pure sporty vibe. The 911 GT3 RS is already equipped with the Clubsport package, which includes a steel roll cage, a portable fire extinguisher and six-point seat belts for increased driving safety.

The 911 Sport Classic adopts the legendary Porsche crest from 1963, and the golden “PORSCHE ” Logo and orange stripes complement each other.
