Adapting to the new times is one of the great challenges that exist in the automotive market. There are many brands that have been working for months to achieve a sustainable mobility model being faithful to its essence and history. This is the case of Porsche that have not left behind their principles and have done so by adapting to a changing society. Now, with the launch of the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS they have not been afraid and have shown their intentions, being designed without compromises to obtain the maximum performance.
It is a high-performance model that has 525 horsepower (386 kW) and approved for use on the road, benefits from technological advances and concepts developed in the world of competition. To do this, it inherits the atmospheric engine of the 911 GT3 R, with aerodynamic and cooling systems very competitive.
The various continuously adjustable baffles at the front and on the two-piece rear spoiler, in combination with another series of aerodynamic components, provide 409 kilograms of total downforce at 200 km/h. In the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS incorporates an air reduction resistance system, enhancing aerodynamics.
At Porsche they have been working hard to ensure that air resistance is not jeopardising their stability. To do this, they have achieved maintain the aerodynamic balance between the front and rear axle under braking, managing to reduce pitch or oversteer when braking. This has been achieved by incorporating the front ball joint of a lower arm has been placed lower. And the multi-link rear axle has also been adjusted with springs of different hardness.
Smart lightweight construction has been a basic principle of all RS models since the legendary 911 Carrera RS 2.7. Thanks to a number of measures such as the extensive use of carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP), the 911 GT3 RS weighs only 1,450 kilograms (weight in running order, according to DIN approval) despite carrying many larger components. The doors, front fins, roof and hood, for example, are made of CFRP. This lightweight material is also used in the standard baquet seats.
