It’s the most powerful Porsche in the current 911 lineup. It’s 5 seconds faster around the Nuerburgring than the 911 GT3. And, best of all, it’s completely street legal.
Officially unveiled at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show, the 911 GT3 RS features a four-liter six-cylinder engine capable of creating 500 hp and 338 lb-ft. As a press release issued today states, it can fly from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds, and can travel a quarter mile in 11.2 seconds.
It is undeniable that this new generation off the 911 is worthy of the name while featuring some highly unique design cues. The first 911 to bear an RS designation was released in 1973, making this the 43rd year of 911 road cars meant for the racetrack.
A magnesium roof lowers the car’s center of gravity and assists in pushing weight savings to 22 pounds over the 2014 911 GT3. Its body is an evolution of the 911 Turbo, and it features RS-specific aerodynamic enhancements.
This road-going race car is currently available for order, with its MSRP in the United States set at $175,900, which does not include the $995 destination charge. Its official launch in the U.S. is set for July of this year.
