The 992 generation Porsche 911 entered production two years ago, but the German automaker has yet to close its lineup. One model that is still in the testing and development phase is the 911 GT3 RS, which will pretty much be a powerful track-focused vehicle.
Discovered on the roads in Europe, the latest prototype, which became the focal point of the spy camera lens, has practically lost its camouflage on the outside, showing off to casual viewers a stunning aerodynamic body kit. As a result, the aggressive styling of the sports car, from the air vents on the hood and front fenders to the massive rear wing that looks slightly different than before, is more visible.
That said, it still boasts active aerodynamics as the top still closes when braking and opens at high speeds. In addition to a racing car look designed to improve downforce, the upcoming 911 GT3 RS will feature a lighter, stiffer chassis and reinforced brakes. It is expected to retain the 4.0-liter naturally aspirated six-cylinder of the latest 911 GT3, albeit with more power.
The exact figures of power and torque are, of course, kept secret by Porsche, but the 911 GT3 RS will produce over 503 hp. and 470 Nm, which the 911 GT3 has. Some believe that it can produce from 530 to 570 horsepower, but still it is worth taking these numbers with the notorious degree of skepticism.
The new 911 GT3 RS was originally thought to premiere sometime this year, but its unveiling date appears to have been pushed back to 2022 due to certain setbacks, such as engine certification issues. So it won’t be available for order until the first half of next year, and deliveries may start next summer.
