Here it is, the 2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS. And it’s a beast. It’s built on a race-bred chassis and powered by a high-revving four-liter, naturally aspirated engine that produces (wait for it…) 520 horsepower and 346 lb.-ft. of torque. Based on the 911 GT3, the RS has been kicked up a notch, combining the most powerful naturally aspirated engine ever fitted to a road-legal 911 with a suspension that features recalibrated rear axle steering tuned for maximum dynamics and precision.
This new 911 GT3 RS accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 3.0 seconds, which is 0.2 seconds quicker than the current 911 GT3 with PDK, and 0.1 seconds quicker than the previous 911 GT3 RS.
How’s the top end? Well, top track speed is 193 mph. Following the launch of the 2018 911 GT3 and the 2018 911 GT2 RS, the new 911 GT3 RS represents the third road-legal GT model to be unveiled within a year.
And OMG does it looks gorgeous. The classic 911 lines, the low stance, the vents over the front wheels…everything about this car screams fast and sexy.
Of course, all that speed and sexiness doesn’t come cheap. Expect it to hit dealers this fall with a starting price of $187,500.
