Since the Type 996, the name "GT3" had been given to Porsche 911 road cars with a strong emphasis on motorsports, developed with FIA GT3 race regulations in mind. For the 996 and the later 997, there exists a "GT3 RS", which further refines the GT3 and improves its performance. At the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the successor to these, the Type 991 GT3 RS was announced.
The model is said to be based on the Type 991 GT3, but on the inside it is something that looks like it has been developed from scratch using all the know-how they have gathered over the years.
The body takes the widest 911 Turbo model, with track widths in the front and rear widened even further. The roof is made of magnesium, the front fenders and bonnet/engine lid are carbon fibre. The rear and rear side windows are acrylic, giving a total weight reduction of 10 kg.
Aerodynamic parts have also been updated. The front spoiler is even lower and wider, and the rear wing stands much higher and is larger. Behind the front fenders are air outlets for drawing air out from under the car. As a result, the downforce is more than double that of a standard 911.
The engine takes the 3.8-litre engine of the GT3 and extends its stroke, making it 4.0 litres in displacement. The tuned engine now produces 24 BHP / 2.0 kgfm more, at 493 BHP / 46.9 kgfm. And the dampers, springs and stabilisers for both the front and rear have been newly developed for this car. As a result, the car lapped the Nürburgring at 7 minutes 20 seconds, a full 5 seconds faster than the base 911 GT3.
