Porsche continued its new-model offensive with a further version of the 911. With a launch in October of 2003, the 911 GT3 RS is an extremely sporty model with the power and purist qualities of a thoroughbred circuit racer, but legally qualified in every way for road use.

The 911 GT3 RS is a homologation model intended to serve as a basis for motor sport activities in accordance with the new international GT rules. Total production is estimated at just over 300. The RS in the model name will cause the hearts of all Porsche enthusiasts and motor racing fans to beat faster. Models such as the Carrera RS 2.7 of 1972 and the 911 SC RS (1984) were also built under the homologation rules, and not only represent proud chapters in Porsche's heritage but often rewrote motor-sport history as well. The new 911 GT3 RS is intended to continue this tradition.

When the RS was developed, the emphasis was on achieving the best possible power-to-weight ratio. A figure of 4.86 kg/kW has resulted - a further improvement of four percent compared with the Club Sport version of the GT3. The new model is 50 kilograms lighter, and tips the scales at 1,360 kilograms with a full load of fuel (90 liters) in the tank.

The RS, like its motor-sport predecessors, is only available with a full roll-over cage installed. All cars have a white paint finish, with the inscriptions only in blue or red, also in the tradition of its famous forbears.

The road version of Porsche's new top sports car has various technical features that will also appear on the racing version, for example the complete wheel hub assemblies, divided front-and rear lateral suspension control arms, optimized rear-axle geometry, a special weight-saving rear window made of acrylic material and a carbon-fiber reinforced front hood and rear wing.

The engine is an extremely free-revving unit that develops 381 bhp at 7300 revolutions per minute from a swept volume of 3.6 liters. The maximum engine speed is 8200 rpm and the specific output 105.8 bhp per liter. These values are also applicable to the current GT3 model. An air collector located under the rear wing uses pressure build-up there to supply extra intake air to the engine at high speeds, so that the RS reaches its maximum power output even more easily, as borne out by its performance figures. For the classic sprint from 0 to 62 mph the GT3 RS needs 4.4 seconds, and goes on to reach 124 mph in 14 seconds. Its top speed is 190 mph. This abundant power is transmitted via a close-ratio six-speed gearbox. Between the engine and the gearbox the RS has a single-mass flywheel with a lower rotating mass than the double-mass version.

The list price for this truly authentic RS driving feeling is 104,000 Euro (plus specific national-market charges). In Germany, for instance, the 911 GT3 RS costs 120,788 Euro including value-added tax. The GT3 RS is to be sold worldwide with the exception of the USA and Canada.

It's FROZEN!

I'm a little disapointed that it still weighs more than the standard carrera 2...I would have loved to see a 996 RS simmilar to the 964 RS or the 993 RS, a standard carrera 2 with light door cards, no stereo, light body pannels, the turbos hollow aloys and brakes, with a neat rear spoiler.

I guess that was what the GT3 MKI was susposed to be, but it still weighed almost the same as a standard carrera 2...they could have done so much more with it...by getting rid of the door cards, and using light wieght body pannels...

so im kinda on the fence...as a RS, meant to sit along side the original 2.7L carrera RS, 964 RS and the 993 RS, i think its a disapointment...however as a homoligation model...allowing the 996 RSR to race...very cool

The blue is better...

Pure mechanical simplicity that successfully harkens back to the golden age of motorsport while also being blindingly fast...how could that not be frozen?
DakianDelomast
But its a nerdish car!

How can it be nerdish? It's an engine, 4 wheels, a stick shift and a stripped out interior. I mean, it's got ABS...but if you think that's nerdish, then you still need to be introduced to the 21st century.
DakianDelomast
Ugh. Moving on.
clarkma5
So I'm assuming you voted MJU?
DakianDelomast
No. I'm not voting at all.

I think it's frozen, and yeah I like the blue. And they look amazing in real life:

soarer
red is faster and better looking i forgot to say in the first post i think its frozen and thoes photos are frozen to!! blue= bleh
Viper007Bond
I like it in red as well.
Jordan
red may look faster, but i really hope you don't think it actually is faster... sad.gif
soarer

is there an option for absolute zero?

what?
Dylan
The point where there is no molecular movement. It's not posible though.
Jordan
well ok, but what does that have to do with a 911 GT3RS? laugh.gif

Colder than frozen is what he means.

yep there isnt even a word for it yet

Don't forget that the emblem on the front is a sticker, that is amazing in itself plus you get a fire extinguisher.
porschedream
Who the fuck voted MJU?!? Tehy should be shot on sight! angry.gif
DakianDelomast
Yes because they have a different opinion on a car than you do. Right dentist?
porschedream
No, because other people have said the same thing without being harassed.
DakianDelomast
Yes but they're all much much much younger than you are. ;D
350Z
Its pretty clear that you guys do not rate a car cool in the same way i do. For me a car that works that hard to be quick can never be cool.
DakianDelomast
Damn the 350Z guy gets it.
350Z
I see it like this. Could anyone ever explain their car has a sticker instead of the regular Porsche badge to save weight and sound cool?
clarkma5
By that token, nissan, no fast car is cool...every fast car requires some level of effort and engineering to make it fast.
DakianDelomast
Well who ever said the 350Z was cool?
350Z
I dont remember saying that the 350Z was cool i just like it is all, and Clark i just said that trying too hard to be fast makes it uncool i didnt say that speed was uncool.
