2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

The 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is arguably one of the best cars to be unveiled at this month’s Geneva Motor Show. The track-focused power horse has been highly anticipated and looks like it was worth the wait. It features a 4.0-litre flat-six engine that revs out to 8,800 rpm and delivers 500 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque in the process. It’s mated again to a refined PDK transmission as standard and goes from 0 to 62 mph comes in just 3.3 seconds, 0.6 seconds faster than the 997 GT3 RS. Oh, and it can slow down too with the help of the Pit Speed button on the center console which activates a safety-oriented speed limiter, helping to cool the car’s temperament at a single stroke. Light alloys and carbon fiber has been leveraged throughout the vehicle to keep this car as nimble as possible while still taking into account a wider track, a 100 mm longer wheelbase and the rear-axle steering. And look how aggressive this thing looks. The new panels feature bigger air ducts for some much needed ventilation and air flow while the carbon fiber wing in the back creates more downforce, almost as much as a Cup car. Did we mention the GT3 RS is street legal? Unreal. Oh, and the interior’s been gutted as well with only the necessary bits left to work with. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS will hit showrooms in the months ahead with the MSRP set at $175,000.
