Porsche's RS road-racer tweaked

2009-01-02 07:28

These images prove that the facelift handed down to Porsche's 911 range and given to the Coupe, Cabriolet, Targa and Turbo models recently, will soon become available for the high-performance GT3 RS, too.

The new GT3 RS was snapped in the French mountains were it was testing alongside the current model.

Cosmetic changes, in typical Zuffenhausen fashion, have been limited and the car will retain its "GT3 RS" side decals, coloured wheels, decorative strip and side mirrors finished in contrasting paint. Also, look out for the imposing rear wing endplates and race-ready roll cage.

RS's weight-saving components will include a polycarbonate rear window, and carbon fibre bonnet and rear wing.

Once again, the 3.6-litre flat-six, which it shares with the GT3, will be required to pound out 305 kW. This will propel the car to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds before it goes on to hit a top speed of 310 km/h.
