Porsche 911 GT3 RS, Ferrari 488 Pista, BMW 1-Series Hatchback”

The new Porsche 911 GT3 RS is out.

Don't worry: the lime green in these first official 991.2 GT3 RS pictures is definitely an option.

Hosted by race driver Derek Bell and two grid girls - take that, Formula 1 - this video looks at Porsche's most significant motorsport creations. It's largely a carryover from the new GT3-where it debuted last year-but a new intake, titanium exhaust, plus a revised spark curve and camshaft timing give it 520 hp. As with all previous GT3 RSes, ride height, camber, caster, toe can be adjusted manually. That's a tenth faster than before, although 2mph has been sacrificed from the car's top speed, which is now "just" 194mph.

Autocar reports that the engine actually develops more power than is claimed and could have been homologated at 530 hp, but Porsche made a decision to err on the side of caution, quoting Porsche GT boss Andreas Preuninger. The flat-six engine delivers 20 horsepower more than its predecessor and the 911 GT3. The conventional elastokinematic bearings are ditched for ball joints on all suspension arms for increased precision, says Porsche.

The chassis also gets minor tweaks with minor tuning given to the rear-axle steering for better performance. Furthermore, the new 911 GT3 RS features new helper springs at the front axle, in addition to the rear.

This generation of 911 GT3 RS courted controversy for not being available with a manual gearbox.

Aerodynamics and interior based on the race trim Aerodynamics have determined the design of the wide, weight-optimized body with its classic rigid rear wing. Lightweight door panels with storage nets and opening loops, reduced sound absorption and the new lightweight rear lid further emphasize the consistency of the material choices.

In front, notice a more steroidal fascia with massive intakes and a bigger lip spoiler; the front fenders and hood - complete with brake cooling ducts - are carbon fiber.

Alternatively, the optional Weissach package adds additional carbon components for the chassis, interior and exterior, as well as optional magnesium wheels. Following the launch of the 2018 911 GT3 and the 2018 911 GT2 RS, the new 911 GT3 RS represents the third road-legal GT model to be unveiled within a year. To further that, you can also add a no-cost Clubsport package, which gets a roll-over bar, manual fire extinguisher, provision for a battery-disconnect switch, and six-point safety harness.
