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.
