2022 Porsche 911 GT3 RS prototype spotted on tests

August 26, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Test photos of the new 992 generation Porsche 911 GT3 RS have been posted online, and this is our very first look at a prototype. The powerful version of the sports coupe received an aggressive aerodynamic body kit.

The current GT3 RS can rightfully be called a very powerful car, but it looks like its successor will “push the boundaries of what is possible” in every sense. Here are the first photos of the next-generation 911 GT3 RS, which looks meaner than ever as a test prototype.

Note the giant fixed rear wing that looks like it was stolen from a real Porsche race car. At this stage of testing, the car looks rather raw.

The giant wing is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the aerodynamic body kit of the new 911 GT3 RS.

We can also notice the huge air intakes and exhaust vents in the front hood, a “sharp” splitter attached to the more aggressive front bumper, air vents on the front fenders, and a massive rear diffuser, which is almost as wide as the rear bumper.

Combined with the wide body kit, the aero package makes the 911 GT3 RS look like a racing car that is allowed on public roads. Expect a naturally aspirated six-cylinder engine ranging from 530 to 580 horsepower under the hood. Like the current 911 GT3 RS, the new version of the model will be offered exclusively with the PDK dual-clutch robotic transmission.

Porsche is expected to unveil the GT3 RS following the debut of the “regular” 911 GT3 and 911 GT3 Touring models of the 992 generation. So the presentation can be expected in 2021. Accordingly, the new 911 GT3 RS will go on sale as a 2022 model year vehicle.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Porsche is conducting an internal investigation into the manipulation of the motors. The Porsche Corporation has been conducting an internal investigation since June, in the center of which are possible manipulations aimed at underestimating the harmful emissions of cars with gasoline internal combustion engines. This information was shared on Monday, August 24, by the Bild am Sonntag portal.
