About This Car
“The 2016 GT3 RS looks utterly intent, dedicated to nothing other than dismantling treacherous racetracks with total focus and peerless disdain. And it now produces more downforce at 125mph than the previous GT3 RS did at 186mph”.
The 991 series GT3 RS broke cover at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show with updated styling and technology, four years since the last RS rolled off the assembly line in Zuffenhausen.
At the time this was the most track focused 911 that Porsche built and it certainly looked like it had absolutely no place on public roads, even though it is very much road legal. What’s most impressive is that nothing you see on this car is just there for show. Porsche’s approach to constructing these highly specialized editions of its legendary 911 sports car has always been to reduce weight, add power and sharpen cornering capability in the time honoured quest for faster lap times.
With this version, it’s aerodynamics that play the key role. That huge, unmistakable rear wing is fabricated in carbon-fiber and manually adjustable across three angles of attack. More importantly, it delivers a confidence-boosting 220kg of downforce at 187 miles per hour.
There’s more aero mastery up front too; the heavily pronounced front splitter working in concert with the louvered front guards, generates another 110kg of stability-inducing downforce at the same speed. Like almost everything else on this car, weight saving measures have been taken to the extreme. Much of the bodywork is exotic. The bonnet, engine lid, and front guards are carbon-fibre. The roof goes one step lighter – it’s a specially sculptured, one-millimeter thick slice of super lightweight magnesium, which shaves 794 grams off the carbon fiber equivalent. Weight saving measures have also been applied to the car’s exhaust system, which is made of titanium, resulting in another saving of around 8 pounds.
Out back, a 4.0 Liter all-motor flat-six spins up 500 license threatening horsepower that explode to life in the upper end of the tachometer through 7 tall gears just a paddle-shifted blink away from each other. The GT3 RS is loud, even at 4,000 rpm. But the real symphony begins as the needle climbs above 7,000 – 8,000 rpm, where the exhaust note morphs into a serious acoustic assault.
Typical Porsche driving dynamics are on offer. Driven with respectful intent, this road going missile doesn’t frighten, overpower or overwhelm. The engine sound towards redline is daunting, and though it’s over the top, haywire and excessive in any measure of speed or grip, it’s all delivered in a way that doesn’t frighten, and with a feel that inspires confidence, and even flatters.
The race inspired treatment of the GT3 RS runs a lot more than just skin deep. There’s a significant level of hard core racing technology underneath this car to help keep it nailed to the tarmac, even when driven at ferocious pace. For starters, it uses the same springs and anti-roll bars from the GT3, though the electronic dampers have been specifically tuned for higher loads for the GT3 RS. The front suspension is fully-adjustable across camber, castor and ride height, as it would be in a full blown Porsche Carrera Cup car.
Almost the entire cockpit is upholstered in high-end Alcantara and supple leather, as well as plenty of beautifully finished carbon fiber inlays across the dash and centre console. The carbon fiber backed seats are truly race car-like, with a look and feel that suggests custom moulding. Despite the heavy bolster, they’re trimmed in a blend of body hugging Alcantara and premium soft touch leather and offer a good deal of comfort, even after a few hours behind the wheel. The same such quality applies to the 918 Spyder inspired three-spoke steering wheel – again in Alcantara, but with the mandatory center marker in contrasting yellow. Despite its fantastic performance, the 911 GT3 RS keeps a modicum of comfort and luxury including the usual tech suite, like climate control air conditioning, satellite navigation and a quality sound system.
