New Porsche 911 GT3 Rs To Continue With Naturally Aspirated Engine Team / Posted On - August 23rd 2022

It's only been a few weeks since the 992-generation Porsche 911 was unveiled, and its maker is already divulging details on its subsequent iterations. Porsche confirmed that a 911 GT3 RS is in the making (of course) and that it is not going down the forced induction path.

When can we expect hotter versions of the 911?

Patience is the key here, for it is inevitable that hotter versions of each new generation of the Porsche 911 are inbound. So far, we have been treated to a 911 Carrera, 4S, and a 911 Cabriolet. Australian magazine Wheels just published an interview with 911 product line chief August Achleitner that gives us some insights into the full range coming our way.

The soon-to-retire Porsche official confirmed that the upcoming 911 GT3 RS would use an evolved version of the 4.0-litre flat-six motor. Engineers at Stuttgart are steering well clear of forced induction. The engine will be slightly bored out to unlock a couple more horses, but the number will be insignificant.

What will be different in the new 911 GT3 RS?

For one, Porsche intends to achieve the same weight of the GT3 RS as before, at 1,430kg. However, it could be slightly lighter, because Porsche believes in continuous, relentless development. To keep such a light sports car that is so powerful stuck to the asphalt, some aerodynamic updates are in order.
As for engines, Porsche could adopt its race-spec 911 GT3 R's 4.0-litre boxer motor and redo it for the street. Achleitner revealed that there will be a connection between the GT3 RS' engine development and the race-spec powertrain. Coming to transmissions, the Carrera S and 4S both get an eight-speed automatic that is lifted from the Panamera. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS, however, will stick to the dual-clutch PDK gearbox. Porsche will also offer a manual transmission in the GT3.

When is the GT3 RS coming?

It's too soon to tell, seeing as customer deliveries of the Carrera S and 4S haven't even commenced yet.  A safe bet would be the year 2020 when the first of these race-derived machines would start hitting the roads.
