Porsche 911 GT3 RS – Click above for high-res image galley

We've been hearing quiet whispers for a while now of an upcoming super 911 GT3 RS from Porsche. Now more rumors are surfacing that say the monster coupe will show its face on April 7th. Word on the virtual street is that this super RS will be powered by a 4.0-liter engine producing 500-horsepower. That's 50 more than the currently-crazy 2011 GT3 RS.

The new car is also said to be lighter than the current RS. This means the extra power will push the car harder than our brains can comprehend. Expect a super price-tag to go along with this super sports car when it finally makes its entrance... assuming, of course, that this rumor is accurate.

        i instantly got that tingly feeling James May was talking about. i was hoping for the 991 GT3 to be 4.0l, but this is beyond cool because it's the old GT1 block.

        The current GT3 3.8 is also the old GT1 block...

      Hey guys. Imagine this car without that crazy metal wing. I bet that this car would be sick with just that duck tail that it has.

      Give it to me sans the metal tail, but with the duck tail in Guards Red with Black interior with black rims with red touches in the interior. Hotness!!!

        I'm sure that it is, however, will I miss it? Probably not. I will probably never get the car up to speeds where I will feel like a wing is needed. I rarely hit 130 in my Carrera now, and if I do, it's at 2:00 AM on a barren straight stretch for like 5 seconds. The other 99% of the time, I'm either driving regular or on the weekend, just enjoying the curves and some mountain driving.

        a standard carrera and a GT3, let alone a GT3RS are totally different cars.

        you don't need a pumped up gt3rs if you don't need the wing.
        • 3 Years Ago
        If you aren't going to get up to speeds where the wing is necessary, this is not the car for you.

        I actually think it looks better with the wing to be honest, because it balances out the car, but that might just be me.

      yet another tweaked porsche....enough already! people saying they'd give their nut or kidney for this one-why? next month they'll be putting lipstick on yet another variation.
      get a new nissan gtr and you can bury 99% of the porsches out there for under 100k.

      looking at the color combo i expected to see clowns coming out of their circus car.

      keep your nuts and kidney, and save the drool for when you see a bugatti, the only real technological marvel worthy of such adoration.

      same tired style,an engine buried in a trunk,the exaggerated whale tail, and a goofy color scheme. hurry and get one while they last,well at least until the next tweaked version next month!

        And then the McLaren MP4-12C waltzes in and handily trounces them both. Ultimately, the Nissan GT-R (including V-Specs) whole of the Porsche 911 range are sporty GT cars, and there are MUCH faster ways around a circuit, so it's a bit silly to argue over which is faster around which track. Plus, there's been as much controversy over the way Porsche and other manufacturers achieve their lap times compared to Nissan: lapping a huge circuit like the Nürburgring is not a completely exact science, and variations in individual cars, tire conditions, road conditions, weather, temperature, drivers, and the like can easily add or subtract over the course of a 7+ minute lap.

        the GTR is like a porn star with the newest high tech implants. it's too easy.

        the GT3 is the girl worth fighting for, the girl who will make you smile every day. and it has a great ass.
        • 3 Years Ago
        get a clue. the GT-R weights more than 1800kg, that's everything but sporty. drive 2 hot laps around the ring and the car, especially the brakes have to cool down for half an hour.

        a stock gt3rs attended the 24h of the ring and finished 13th, hell nissan doesn't even dare to attend it with a gt-r in race trim, cos they know that their car is only good for one hot lap.

        porsche offers driver trainings on the ring for gt3 customers and Nissan...well, they take away your warranty as soon as you take your car to a track.

        btw, did any independent source confirm Nissan's fairytale laptimes (without slicks)? the GT3RS is indeed faster according to independent sources

        You do realize that a GT3 RS only cost $135,000. That's a bargain for what you're getting. This car will probably cost around $170,000 and will still be a bargain. It will be able to run against almost every other car in the world on the track, and do so for a fraction of the cost and with a lot more reliability.

        I am ready for the next generation of 911's to bow, however, I'm enjoying these extra models that we are getting at the end of this run. It's making you think twice about waiting. Because I am definitely waiting to see what I am going to do.

        I'm waiting for a 400 + horse power C4S to be born. Then all will be right with the world. I'll add the X51 kit to the mix and be in heaven for the next 7 - 10 years.

      i'm just glad that porsche is still making these "crazy" limited edition 911's,...they could so easily do what most other car companies do,...and just make one or 2 variations on a model,..but the 911 now has i think i heard 38 variations now,...if you include this!,... that's just wild!....and i knew we'd get the same old tired argument about "911 versus gtr",...for god's sake,...each of those cars are magnificent in their own way and serve different purposes,...911 for the driver who perhaps wants more driving involvement maybe at the sacrifice of some speed,...and gtr driver wants blistering front line performance at the sake of a little steering feel,...to each his own i say!,..i'm just glad porsche still makes the 911,...what with so-many so-called "experts" always deriding it's engine placement!,...doesn't seem to hurt them much in winning motorsports events now, does it?!,...i think i read somewhere the the 911 has won MORE motorsports events than ANY other car in history,...how's that for engine in the wrong place, huh?!

      How bout dropping that into the Cayman???

      I would give my left nut and right kidney for this car.

      This thing ought to give a GT2 a run for its money. Not the GT2 RS tho..

      GT3 by far my favorite modern Porsche.
        • 3 Years Ago
        if it's faster than the GT2, then Porsche will stop building the current GT2, they always do that.

        the current GT3 RS is faster than the F458 on twisty tracks. and we all know Ferrari's cheap tricks when it comes to their "official" track times.
        • 3 Years Ago
        Hell, I'll bet it gives the 458 Italia a run for it's money, whilst being one of the most reliable and durable track cars you can buy.
