2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS offers more engine power, lower weight
and shorter transmission ratios, as well as upgraded body and
suspension components than all previous GT3 models.
Like the engine featured in the 911
GT3, the naturally-aspirated RS power unit now displaces
3.8 liters and delivers even more power, while revving up even
faster to its 8500 rpm redline. It now delivers 450 horsepower,
15 more horsepower than its 911 GT3 counterpart.
The new 911 GT3 RS comes exclusively with a six-speed manual
gearbox optimized for short gearshift travel, low weight and
high efficiency. To enhance the level of performance throughout
the entire range of engine and road speed, the transmission
comes with shorter ratios than found in the 911 GT3, deliberately
conceding an even higher potential top track speed.
Dynamic engine mounts are standard and serve to improve the
car's handling to an even higher level. Depending on driving
conditions, the mounts change in their stiffness and damping
effect, improving the connection between the engine and the
body when driving under very lively conditions, yet allow for
more comfortable conditions during everyday street use.
Porsche is also introducing another new option in 2010 for the
GT3 RS, a lithium-ion battery. Delivered with the car and, when
replacing the conventional lead-acid battery, it reduces the
weight by more than 10 kg or 22 lb and is mainly intended for
To further improve its sporting behavior, the new 911 GT3 RS
comes with a purpose-built and specially set up PASM suspension,
a wider front and rear track and corresponding bodywork.
The front axle comes with nine-inch-wide wheels running on 245/35
ZR 19 sports tires while the rear axle features twelve-inch-wide
wheels incorporating 325/30 ZR 19 sports tires.
The new 911 GT3 RS shows its close connection to motorsport
through its dynamic looks, in particular by its low ride height,
the new, extra large carbon-fiber rear wing and titanium exhaust
