> Hardest of hardcore 911s spotted testing
> 911 GT3 RS gets massive active rear spoiler
> 4.0-litre engine expected to produce north of 530bhp
> Prices expected to be around £150,000
Spoiler alert: the GT3 RS has been spotted testing, which makes sense considering the ‘standard’ GT3 went on sale recently. The RS is an even more hardcore version of the GT3, which is essentially a race car you can legally drive on the road. Think low on weight, big on power.
The most noticeable addition to the RS is that gargantuan rear wing, which will close when cornering to improve downforce and open up on straights to allow cleaner airflow. Note the Porsche racing car-inspired swan neck mounts.
As well as active aero at the back the RS appears to have a wider track, and we can see a new splitter at the front.
The same 4.0-litre naturally aspirated flat-six engine found in the GT3 will also appear in the RS, but power will be hiked. Although Porsche has not revealed any official figures it’s expected to pack at least 530bhp.
Porsche’s super-slick eight-speed PDK gearbox will be fitted, with no option of a manual expected, as was the case with the previous RS.
Judging by the size of those carbon-ceramic brakes the RS is going to be every bit as track-focussed as before and will boast a 0-62mph of around 3-seconds.
The full reveal of the 911 GT3 RS is expected to happen before the end of the year, which means early customers can expect their car in the first quarter of 2022.
A lot. But how much a lot we don’t know for sure, Porsche hasn’t let the cat out of the bag yet, but an educated estimate would say £150,000, based on the standard GT3’s £123,100 asking price.
