2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0
Porsche launched the RS version of the outstanding 911 GT3 at the Geneva Motor Show in 2015. The 3.8-litre unit found in the 911 GT3 was replaced with a normally aspirated 4.0-litre unit with 500 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is a seven-speed PDK. The upgraded drivetrain delivers 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds and 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) in 10.9 seconds.
Compared to the 911 GT3, the front fenders are now equipped with louvers above the wheels and the rear fenders now include Turbo-like intakes, rather than an intake below the rear wing. The roof is made from magnesium, and the decklid and trucklid are carbon fiber. The interior includes full bucket seats (based on the carbon seats of the 918 Spyder), carbon-fiber inserts, lightweight door handles and the Club Sport Package as standard (a bolted-on roll cage behind the front seats, preparation for a battery master switch, and a six-point safety harness for the driver and fire extinguisher with mounting bracket).
The 991 GT3 RS also comes with functions such as declutching by "paddle neutral" - comparable to pressing the clutch with a conventional manual gearbox - and Pit Speed limiter button. Fitted to the RS are bespoke Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires-the widest fit to any 911-on center-lock wheels. As with the 911 GT3, there is rear-axle steering and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus with fully variable rear axle differential lock. The Nurburgring Nordschleife time is 7 minutes and 20 seconds.
