And the future sounds good as Porsche R&D boss Wolfgang Hatz stated for AutoExpress that ”Performance has to be the main objective. Customers love the current GT3. The RS has to be the peak. The 991 GT3 was very much a surprise for everybody because it’s a very useable car for every day. The GT3 RS will be more extreme.”
According to Hatz the 911 GT3 RS will be drived by a completely new naturally aspirated six-cylinder unit. As far as power goes it’s important to say that the 4.0-liter unit will be generating 500 bhp (373 kW).
