Porsche_911_GT3_RS_rear_20090521

Want to know what to expect from the next Porsche 911 GT3 RS? The Internet has delivered a few spec sheets to satisfy your curiosity.

According to Axis of Oversteer, the spec sheets provide substantial information on the new GT3. Per the specs, power is derived from a 4-liter flat-six pumping out 500 horsepower and 340 lb-ft of torque to the back through a seven-speed PDK unit linked to an electronically controlled rear differential with torque vectoring.

Suspension and chassis components include McPherson spring strut axle on a 36 mm widened track up front, a multi-link rear with integrated auxiliary spring, active suspension management, and 20- and 21-inch GT3 RS forged alloys mounted over compound discs with 6- and 4-piston aluminum monobloc calipers.

Carbon-fiber reinforced plastic is the order of the day for most of the bodywork, as well as the full bucket seats and some trim parts. An optional Clubsport package adds a bolted cage in the back, battery disconnect switch prep, and a HANS-compatibile six-point belting system for the driver, while the new Pit Speed system handles the speed restriction of a given pit lane at the press of a button.

The 911 GT3 RS is due to go on sale in Europe next month.

    I realize the picture is a 997.1 GT3 RS and there are people questioning how authentic this leak is, but …yes please!

    The leak is very likely authentic; the details corroborate official previews of the car that select Italian and Middle Eastern clients have received prior to Geneva.

    Interesting that the GT3 is automatic only and the newly announced Cayman GT4 is stick-shift only.

      My understanding is that 911 GT3 is a car that’s meant be as close as possible to the purpose-built 911 competition sports cars competing in IMSA, FIA, and ACO GT classes, and have paper specs to back it up. And all top levels of motorsports competitions have switched to using semi-automatic shifters a long time ago.
