first_imgThe current GT3 RS is out in the open and immediately we have a problem. The current gen GT3 has almost the same power from the 4.0-litre flat-six churning about 490 odd horses. Thankfully, Porsche has understood the issue and has come out with a refreshed GT3 RS.The 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is now the most powerful 911 in the lineup. Under the hood is nothing new, or so it looked. It still has the same 4.0-litre flat-six naturally aspirated motor but now it belts out a whopping 520 horses with 346 pound-feet of torque.The 2019 GT3 RS will also beat the current GT3 RS in the 0-62mph race by 0.1 sec. Top speed is 193mph and transmission is the standard dual-clutch PDK transmission which is the only one available for the GT3 RS. The chassis also gets minor tweaks with minor tuning given to the rear-axle steering for better performance. Porsche has also added a new set of helper springs on the front axle to go along with the ones which are already present. Brakes are cast iron, but track enthusiasts can opt for carbon-ceramic discs.We can see Porsche did not bother itself with many changes when it shifted from the 991 generation to the 991.2 refresh, but there are slight changes in the latest GT3 RS. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 991.2 now gets notched taillights and NACA ducts on the hood. Borrowed from the GT2 RS, the ducts help improve brake cooling. The interior is also in line with the refreshments, meaning very little changes. You get racing bucket seats with carbon fibre backrests, the door gets vinyl loops instead of regular handles, lesser sound insulation (weight reduction), no rear seats, and the signature 12’0 clock stripe on the steering wheel.advertisementEven though the 911 GT3 RS is rear engined, because of the dynamics and dimensions of the car, the engine sits on top of the rear axle and hence is like a mid-mounted rear wheel drive sports car. This translates into the mammoth grip on the track whilst accelerating to 100kmph in just 3 seconds. Yeah, we sure want to pop some eyeballs!last_img
