Bridging the gap between Porsche 911 GT3 Cup and GT3 RS – Click above for high-res image gallery

Rumors of a more powerful, special edition Porsche 911 GT3 RS have been circulating for months, and now the spec sheet has purportedly been leaked online. The order form is ostensibly for what's being dubbed the GT3 RS 4.0, packing a bored-out flat-six with 500 horsepower – a 200cc increase in displacement and 50 horses more than the existing GT3 RS, which itself already packs 15 more ponies than the standard GT3.

The price sheet also lists a €150,000 sticker before tax (equivalent to $217k), or €190,000 with a 20-percent value-added tax attached, and details options like a nav system, ceramic brakes and a nose-lift apparatus. The sheet was posted on the Teamspeed forum, but while the intrepid poster claims its authenticity, a debate is raging over its potential falsification, pointing out, for example, certain discrepancies (such as the 2011 model year instead of 2012, output listed in BHP instead of Porsche's usual PS, and "breaks" instead of "brakes") that have raised doubts.

Whether the spec sheet is authentic or not, we should be finding out soon enough, so stay tuned and watch this space for more.

      I hope this turns out to be legit. Or least the specs end up being correct. 500hp all-motor flat-six?? Yes, please.

      Finally Porsche shows what a bored out N/A pancake motor can really put out!! From a factory tuning standpoint this is great news!

      I'm looking forward to seeing it tested against the best the worlds N/A cars have to offer including the revised 2012 Z06, V12 Vantage, and any other 500hp factory tuned N/A car!!!

      They have been talking about this forever on TeamSpeed. I doubt we will see anything until the end of summer.

      Pure hottness, but these prices are coming dangerously close to McLaren MP4-12C, Ferrari 458 and Lamborghini Gallardo prices.

      I hope so! It's going to need some serious cams for that ambitious HP/liter

        Chris Harris is surely already going nuts over this.
        Car of the year 2011/12 here we come.

        Imagine that flat six screaming at WOT. Call me crazy but I'd rather have this naturally aspirated monster than the GT2RS.

      Is it just me or is the GT3's paint job EXACTLY the same as the limited edition Ford mustang Boss?

        They called the Boss Gaudy, but this, it will be a beautiful car.

        Don't worry they are both gaudy in my eyes.
