The New 513bhp Porsche 911 GT3 RS Has Been Leaked

Leaks are fast becoming a fact of business life for car makers, but let Porsche's chagrin be your early morning bonus with the first leaked details of the next GT3 RS

This is the next Porsche GT3 RS; the final version of the 991-era car. It’s very fast, very green… and revealed before Porsche would have liked.

It’s yet another leak, picked up when Australian web magazine Drive posted these images along with details of the new 520-horsepower, 9000rpm monster. Apparently they weren’t supposed to, because the article was taken down – but not before the rest of the world got their grubby mitts on the contents of the piece.

The Internet is a Pandora’s Box, and once it’s open and something is out there, there’s not much you can do to keep it secret. Ah, well. Porsche’s frustration is your gain, this time, because the details are juicy.

The 4.0-litre flat-six has been tickled into coughing up an extra 20 horses courtesy of a higher rev ceiling, and that 513bhp peak shaves a tenth of a second off the car’s 0-62mph launch time. It’ll now smash through that barrier in just 3.2 seconds. You’d imagine the noise will be almost as explosive as the launch, too…

It’s still PDK-only, because lap times, but the rear-wheel steering has been revised after feedback from all the cars out there in the real world. More minor tweaks surface in the shape of slightly altered front air ducts and larger rear air extraction ducts in a revised rear bumper.

Normal seat belts come as standard but the Clubsport Package swaps them for six-point harnesses, a fire extinguisher and a roll cage. There’s also less sound insulation than you’ll find in a bag of crisps. We wonder whether someone will build a manual version…



Hmm, I wonder how much more it’ll cost over the 991.1 GT3 RS? 🤔

No this is the 991.2 but the 992 will have the new turbo engine

As the Tesla rocket floats away as the earth goes up in flames,
May the last glimpse it takes be of a green Porsche GT3RS doing what it does best - go fast

The want is strong with this one.
