Porsche 911 GT3 RS: ultimate 911 spied

The 992 has arrived, but we're still waiting to see the latest 911 in its final form. Porsche has been teasing its design since 2019 - but now our spy photographers have caught a glimpse of the ultimate naturally-aspirated 911.

These pictures show the most extreme version of the 992 you’ll find – and the prototype shown seems to feature some RSR DNA anyway. 

The car shown features classic GT3 signatures such as centre-lock wheels and central-exit dual exhaust; but it also boasts some serious aero bits: At the front, Porsche engineers have given the RS huge bonnet-mounted outlets, and at the rear a rear diffuser combines with a racing-style swan-neck mounted rear wing. 

Further pictures have revealed more interesting details about the forthcoming RS; Porsche appears to have moved towards horizontal cooling louvres behind the front wheels, and Stuttgart has dispensed with the air-intakes usually found in front of the rear-wheels. 

Still, it looks much more extreme than its predecessor, also shown in our gallery.

Add the wider-than-stock body, and this GT3 RS looks to be an unpainted RSR. 

We’re expecting the flat-six in the GT3 RS to put out something north of the Speedster’s 503bhp, and channel it through a PDK-only box, like the current car.
