Porsche has been taking its time developing the most hardcore 911 models for the latest 991 chassis. While the GT3 has been on the market for a little while, it suffered from some teething issues. The 911 GT3 RS is certainly on the radar since being spotted testing, but it's always better to get a look at a new car without all of the camo to hide the coolest parts. Thankfully, Car in the UK has some patent photos of the RS ahead of its debut, and they show off one mean-looking 911.

The first thing that you notice about the RS is that Porsche clearly isn't afraid to rework the latest 911's shape for its track-focused version. Each piece is slightly resculpted to squeeze the most out of it. Up front, the air dam has the same shape to the earlier photos. They also both highlight the upcoming model's tiny air inlet at the tip of the hood, the massive intakes in the rear fenders and general design of the rear wing with a ducktail underneath. The bubbled roof is much clearer here, where it was disguised in spy shots. You can also spot the slashing fender gills behind the front wheels that are a completely new feature.

The GT3 RS is the ultimate naturally aspirated 911 for the street, but according to Car, Porsche aims to take that even farther with the latest model. If these are the looks, then it's working. Unfortunately, the new version's powerplant remains a mystery. Though, given all the changes to the bodywork, the engine is almost surely getting tweaked over the 475-horsepower GT3. The RS is rumored to hit the road and be screaming down the track in 2015.

      I like it. It looks very nice. So I assume they are going to reveal it soon. What was the German auto show in the Autumn? Frankfurt?

      Delicious! Looks like it wouldn't be road legal.

        Why do you say that? The GT3RS has always been street legal.

          Of course it will be road legal, I'm saying it looks as if it wouldn't. Looks like a straight up GT3 car from Le Mans.

      In before the 'purists' get butthurt about the lack of manual.

      Looks like every other 911 from the last 40 years

          He has a point though. It looks like a 911 with some mild aesthetic modifications, and it's hardly worth getting upset about either way. It's a 911 - they look how they look, and it's what's underneath the staid exterior that counts.

      more than likely that small slot at the tip of the front hood (trunk or boot, since the engine is out back) is an air outlet, not inlet. It reduces the back pressure on air flowing through whatever radiators or intercoolers are riding behind the massive rectangular intake in the center below the bumper, and fills air into a low-pressure zone.

      Hopefully those inlets on the rear fenders are for aerodynamics and not turbocharging.
