Upcoming Porsche 991.2 GT3 RS Coming With GT2 Aero Bits And More Power

We live in an era where Porsche keeps churning world-class performance cars and the upcoming 991.2 GT3 RS is the living proof.

Following the popular but limited 911 R, Porsche has since been launching models like the 991.2 GT3 and the fresh-off-the-oven GT2 RS, giving rivals a headache and customers what they really want: more exciting cars.

Enter the new 991.2 GT3 RS. Since the latest GT3 matched the numbers produced by the pre-facelift 991 GT3 RS, courtesy of the new 4.0-liter flat-six engine, the new version will offer more than 500hp, with reports suggesting close to 520hp coming out of the normally aspirated engine.

There is also a strong chance of Porsche offering a free manual gearbox option again with the GT3 RS, following the example of its little GT3 sibling, in addition to the standard PDK transmission.

Other revisions will of course include a more aggressive aero agenda with additional NACA cooling ducts on the hood, the new-look front bumper and other smaller tweaks to allow Porsche to claim some significant gains in downforce over the model it replaces.

There is even the chance Porsche to offer an optional Weissach package, just like in the GT2 RS, which will add a bundle of stuff made out of carbon fiber and magnesium for those looking for the lightest GT3 RS possible and are willing to spend some extra money to get it.

Expect to see the new Porsche 991.2 GT3 RS making its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September.

    This thing is going to be amazing. I just hope that the guys that have allocations for the GT3 change their mind and get on the list for this vehicle instead.

      Two things: one the GT3 will have a manual option while this most likely won’t, and then as far as i know getting on the GT3 RS’ list isn’t the easiest thing to do… Some just accept it and go for the “lesser” GT3 instead really.

        Also, the GT3 is a tiny bit more civilised and maybe some prefer that.

        Well the issue I have been facing is that there was nothing else to get so all of the 918, 911 R, and GT3 RS owners all wanted the GT3 because that was the best Porsche had to offer. Now that the GT2 RS is out along with the GT3 RS I’m just hoping that they jump off one allocation list and hop on on of the other two. I’m pretty far down on the pecking order so this is my only chance.

    GT3RS is the most impressive in Porsche’s performance 911 range, in my opinion. I mainly feel this way because it runs the highest output N.A. engine they make and it always seems to sound incredible! To me, this car oozes more charm, character, and excitement than even the new GT2RS with its 700 turbo’d horses. I’d be more excited to get a chance to drive this. Sadly, these are also never really affordable either. I wonder if you can rent one for a day?
