has unveiled the new 911 GT3 RS in India at the Porsche Centre Bengaluru. With
a lap time of seven minutes and 20 seconds, the new model beats the historic
record achieved by the Carrera GT super sports car on the North Loop of the
Nürburgring by nine seconds. This is a limited edition car and the only one in
911 GT3 RS is powered by a four-litre six-cylinder engine with 500 hp and 480
Newton metres of torque, combined with a specially developed PDK transmission.
The car with the naturally aspirated engine with direct fuel injection
accelerates the car from zero to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and to 200 km/h in
10.9 seconds. Functions such as declutching by "paddle neutral" –
which is comparable to pressing the clutch with a conventional manual gearbox –
and speed limiting by the Pit Speed button have been customised for motorsport
use. They give drivers more freedom in terms of driving dynamics, while also
providing them with more assistance when driving on a circuit racetrack.
911 GT3 RS roof is made of magnesium; carbon fibre is used for the engine and
luggage compartment lids, and other lightweight components are made of
alternative materials. This makes the RS model around ten kilograms lighter
than the 911 GT3. In addition, the lightweight roof lowers the sports car's
centre of gravity which improves its excellent lateral dynamics. The body comes
from the 911 Turbo, and it signifies the model’s status as the closest
road-legal race car with its RS-specific aerodynamic add-on parts. The front
spoiler lip, which extends close to the road, and the large rear wing reinforce
its dominant look.
30 centimetre wide recess extends centrally over the Carbon Fibre Reinforced
Plastic (CRFP) bonnet and the magnesium roof. This feature is a stylish
reference to the recess on the luggage compartment lid of the classic 911
models with air-cooled engines, and today it identifies the two largest
lightweight components in the 911 GT3 RS. Another characteristic is the unique
front wheel arch air vents that extend into the upper section of the wings –
just as in purebred motorsport cars, they increase downforce at the front axle.
chassis of the 911 GT3 RS has been tuned for maximum driving dynamics and
precision. Rear-axle steering and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus with fully
variable rear axle differential lock increase agility and dynamics, and the
wider front and rear track widths enable even better roll stability than in the
addition, the 911 GT3 RS comes with the widest tyres of any 911 model as
standard. The results: even more agile turn-in characteristics and even higher
interior design of the 911 GT3 RS with Alcantara elements is based on the
current 911 GT3. One key new feature is the full bucket seats, which are based
on the carbon bucket seats of the 918 Spyder. Other standard features are the
Club Sport Package with a bolted-on roll cage behind the front seats,
preparation for a battery master switch, and separately provided six-point
safety harness for the driver and fire extinguisher with mounting bracket. The
standard Sport Chrono Package, which features – in addition to its integrated
timers – the Porsche Track Precision app for a smartphone.
Track Precision app can be used to automatically measure lap times via GPS, and
to log data on a smartphone for a range of driving parameters such as vehicle
speed, lateral acceleration as well as acceleration and deceleration in the
driving direction. It manages this data and lets the driver share and compare
it with other drivers.
