Porsche’s 991.2-Gen 911 GT3 RS Is Set To Become A Future Classic

Whenever Porsche releases a new GT-badged model, you know it is going to be good and as Matt Farah recently discovered, the 991.2 GT3 RS is exactly that.

Powering the car is Porsche’s truly intoxicating 4.0-liter naturally-aspirated six-cylinder engine mated to a quick-shifting PDK transmission. As anyone who has been in a GT3 or GT3 RS will tell you, it is hard to beat the mechanical symphony produced by this motorsport-derived engine. You can keep your Lamborghini and Ferrari V12s; we’ll have a highly-strung flat-six from Porsche thank you very much.

The 911 GT3 RS is Weissach’s most track-focused 911 alongside the GT2 RS, and that means its ride can beat you up a little bit if you’re driving in the city or roads that aren’t crisp and smooth. It would take a brave person to daily drive a GT3 RS, and those looking to buy a fast 911 that can be driven day in, day out, would be better off with a Carrera T or the GT3 Touring, Farah says – or a Turbo, we might add.

An all-new 911, code-named 992, has already been launched, and we know that an new GT3 is just around the corner, which means an RS is almost sure to follow. Since the previous car, which is driven here, delivers 512 HP, the next model will inevitably have a little more grunt. How much? Well, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a figure closer to the 540 or 550 HP mark. It’s even possible the car could feature a larger 4.2-liter engine, just like the latest mid-engined 911 RSR racer, though for the moment, that’s mere speculation.

    This is the best car Porsche makes. You cannot change my mind.

    • ksegg

      This is the ONLY car Porsche makes in my mind. The rest don’t matter.

      • Rahul Mandala

        I’d personally say every car Porsche makes matters to me.

        • Nastinupe1911

          No they don’t. Ever since the 911 went to turbo they are dead to me. They could have at least kept the GTS naturally aspirated. bastards.

          • Rahul Mandala

            Sure, but it is what I feel. There’s the 991.2 C4S that’s still naturally aspirated. Porsche still reserved the naturally aspirated engines in their lineup.

  • Bash

    In my mind, every Porsche is a future classic, except those early boxters, those were lousy af.

  • GobbleUp

    Laff….as if it sounds half as good as a v12 ferrari. Lmao.

    • Rahul Mandala

      What? It sounds very godly in person. Sure, it may not be a whole V12, but the 4.0L N/A Flat 6 is plenty capable and still has tons of charisma.

  • You didn’t mention the most important thing: new 911 GT3/GT3 RS will still be naturally aspirated

  • HTC ONE

    I am still wandering why there was no reference to the 991.2 GT3RS becoming a future classic (As per headline) when the 992 GT3RS will replace it with a naturally aspirated and sharper version as Porsche always does?

  • Nastinupe1911

    Shut up. The prices are tanking. I’ve watched them drop $100,000 in the past 12 months. Once they hit $150k I’m biting.

    • Rahul Mandala

      They didn’t say it would instantly be a classic. When in the distant future, where everything is an EV, then we could see the prices of the naturally aspirated classics rising. I know, its simply sad.
