2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS teased for August 17 debut

2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS teased for August 17 debut
  • Porsche has announced that the 2023 911 GT3 RS will be unveiled on August 17.
  • The accompanying teaser image shows a prototype with a huge rear wing and many vents and air intakes in the body.
  • The GT3 RS should also bring more power and a standard PDK dual-clutch automatic.

    The Porsche 911 GT3 is already a visceral, breathtakingly fast track machine. At our annual Lightning Lap competition, the 2022 GT3 made the most of its 4.0-liter flat-six and sticky 502-hp Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tires to set a blistering 2:40.6 lap on Virginia International Raceway, finishing seventh in Lightning Lap history. But Porsche is ready to take the GT3 one step further. Porsche announced today that the 2023 911 GT3 RS will be unveiled on August 17, heralding the return of the Rennsport name, carried only by Porsche’s most extreme street-legal track toys.

    The teaser image shown at the top, along with previously published spyshots, gives a good idea of ​​what to expect from the new GT3 RS. The new track car is said to be inspired by the 911 RSR and GT3 R race cars, as evidenced by its radically new bodywork. Porsche appears to have attacked the sheet metal with a saw, cutting out two huge vents on the hood and cutting air outlets over the front wheels. Tape seems to obscure aerodynamic doodads just in front and behind the front wheels, while a huge rear wing sprouts from the rear of the car.

    As with previous versions of the GT3 RS, we expect the naturally aspirated 4.0-litre six-cylinder to get a slight increase in power and torque over the GT3; the previous version had an extra 20 horsepower and 7 pound-feet. The GT3 RS should remain rear-wheel drive and will probably come exclusively with the fast-shifting seven-speed PDK automatic. The 2019 GT3 RS set a Lightning Lap time of 2:41.6, over five seconds faster than a 2018 GT3. As the 2022 GT3 already beat the old RS, the new 2023 GT3 RS should be capable of absolutely insane track performance.

    The 2023 GT3 RS will be unveiled on August 17 at 11:00 a.m. EST via a livestream on newstv.porsche.com.
