LEAKED: The 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Now Gets 520 HP From Its Naturally Aspirated Flat Six


The 911 GT2 RS may be the top of the 911 pecking order but Porsche hasn’t forgotten about the equally drool-worthy 911 GT3 RS.

The German firm has been developing a few tweaks for its naturally aspirated track star, and now the updated car has been revealed via a leak. The leak comes via Drive, which has since removed the photos from its website although not before they were saved by Motor1.

They reported the GT3 RS’ 4.0-liter flat six now makes 520 horsepower, up from 500 HP last year. The engine also redlines to 9,000 RPM !!

Other updates include a retuned rear-wheel-steering system and some aerodynamic and cosmetic tweaks.

The downside: still no manual for the RS, only a PDK dual-clutch gearbox 🙁

If you order the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS with the Clubsport package, you will receive an aluminum roll cage, a fire extinguisher and a six point harness. And check that green interior, beautiful counterpart of the bright red interior of the Porsche 911 GT2 RS .

Anyways, it looks awesome. I’ll take 5 🙂
