Porsche's next GT3 RS spied

2009-04-17 07:58

The facelift rolled out across the Porsche 911 range and given to the Coupe, Cabriolet, Targa and Turbo models is now being extended to the GT3 RS performance model, too.

Recently snapped testing alongside the current model at the Nürburgring race circuit in Germany, these images provide some key details about the new big hitter.

With the aid of its 305-kW 3.6-litre flat six engine, the GT3 RS will retain its top speed of 311 km/h and 0-100 km/h sprint time of around four seconds.

Weight saving measures again include a polycarbonate rear window, and a carbon fibre bonnet and rear wing.

GT3 RS will keep its distinctive "GT3 RS" decals, special coloured wheels, contrasting side mirrors, roll cage and imposing rear wing.
