There are brands that have not been stagnant at any time thanks to the evolution of their models, adapting to new opportunities without forgetting at any time of the users. The Porsche firm has not left anyone indifferent with its most avant-garde models, as is the case of the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS, in which they have opted for the best technology of the moment that introduces the best features to very demanding customers.
It all started fifty years ago, when the firm launched the 911 Carrera RS 2.7 as the fastest sports car in Germany. All this started as a special series that was going to be homologated for the competition so they were pioneers in technology. With an engine of 210 hp at 6,300 rpm and 255 Nm at 5,100 rpm of its air-cooled six-cylinder boxer developed by Hans Mezger and Valentin Schäffer.
This model had a powerful engine that was the first part of history, thanks to the tests that were made in the wind tunnel and an aerodynamic efficiency did not leave indifferent. Therefore, they incorporated a ducktail spoiler, being an icon of this model, offering the best stability at high speeds without jeopardizing the safety of users.
Now, with its latest major release, the 2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is the most extreme 911 model homologated for the road. Counting on a 4.0-liter six-cylinder boxer engine has 525 horsepower and reaches 9,000 rpm. With a rear-wheel drive, it features a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission. Through extensive aerodynamic work derived from the competition, it generates 409 kilograms of total load at 200 km/h and 860 kg at 285 km/h.
It is also the first 911 GT3 RS with active aerodynamics, a feature that is used to deliver incredible load levels, provide deceleration assistance by creating an aerobrake and reduce drag resistance (DRS), which can reposition aerodynamic elements in certain conditions if the driver wishes.
