Porsche 911 GT3 RS revealed, on sale from $416500

Porsche 911 Turbo S up the slope in Glenshee

Porsche quotes a 3.0-second sprint to 60 miles per hour for the new GT3 RS, but that's not the impressive number here.

As with all current GT sports cars, the Clubsport package is also available for the 911 GT3 RS at no extra cost. We expect the 4.0-liter motor of the 991.1 model to have been retired in favor of an evolution of the all-new 4.0-liter that debuted on the 2018 GT3. The GT3 is the only 911 to be powered by a naturally aspirated engine. They include new LED indicator lamps set within a re-profiled front bumper featuring new vertical air flow guides within the outer air ducts to more efficiently channel air to the front mounted radiators and brakes. Porsche is using a larger lip on the front spoiler, more massive side skirts, and a reworked rear diffuser. Order books for the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS are open now. Hence the cabin also feature3s some of the unique stylings like the racing seats in carbon fiber and steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara.

German performance carmaker, Porsche, has launched its new 911 GT3 RS sports auto in India with a starting ex-showroom price tag of Rs 2.75 crore. The new high-performance sports auto is based on the 911 GT3, which has been refined still further to combine the performance-enhanced engine with a running-gear setup that features re-calibrated rear axle steering designed for maximum dynamics and precision. In that respect, the ability to rev to 9,000rpm and enjoy the immediate response of an engine that doesn't rely on turbochargers is likely to ensure the ultimate 911 remains as desirable as ever to petrolheads.

This blistering pace in the absence of turbos is further helped by the Porsche's PDK dual clutch transmission which helps to get the power down to the rear wheels. There's also a lightweight engine cover and reduced sound proofing.

Porsche Motorsport began development of the new 911 GT3 RS not long after it started working on the GT2 RS, and it shows.

Based on the existing GT3, further weight saving measures have been applied to the RS for added performance. As is customary for a Porsche GT model, the ride height, toe, camber, caster and sway bar settings of the suspension can be adjusted to suit individual driver preferences. Traction is also improved thanks to 21-inch wheels with 325/30 tires at the rear axle. With all of these boxes ticked and equipped with carbon-ceramic brakes, the GT3 RS has a curb weight of just 3153 lbs.

Porsche says that the auto starts at $187,000 and if you add the Weissach Package that will tack on another $18,000. Magnesium wheels as well as additional carbon components for the chassis, interior and exterior.

A year has since passed and now, Porsche has officially introduced the updated 911 GT3 RS.

The new 2019 911 GT3 RS is available to order now and is expected to reach USA dealers in fall 2018.

And if you're looking to adorn your driveway or garage with such a slab of Germany, you should know that the starting price of the thing sits at $187,500, plus a $1,050 delivery tax. The auto will be available in the fall of 2018 with the magnesium wheels and Weissach Package available later. Optional forged magnesium wheels, weighing around 25 pounds less than the standard wheels, are available as well.
