Porsche has officially announced its plans of introducing a new track-oriented model, which is still road-legal, at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, next Tuesday, and this is said to be the new 911 GT3 RS.
The German based automaker Porsche couldn’t have missed out on the 2015th edition of the Geneva Motor Show and the company will be introducing a new track-oriented toy, which is still road-legal. The model in question has been officially confirmed but we have no clue exactly on what it is. However, some reports are suggesting that this might actually be the highly anticipated 911 GT3 RS, which will share the same space with the recently unveiled Cayman GT4.
“The second new model is another exceptional Porsche that sets new standards on the racetrack. The world premiere will take place during the Porsche press conference at the Palexpo Arena in Geneva at 11:30 (CET) on March 3, 2015”, says the carmaker in its official press release.
The brand new Porsche 911 GT3 RS is expected to be taking its power from a newly developed 4.0 liter naturally aspirated flat six-cylinder engine, which should be capable of producing a total of 500 HP (368 kW) and 460 Nm (340 lb-ft) of torque. The unit will be connected only to the 7-speed PDK transmission and the carmaker will not be offering any manual selection. Weight saving measures will be applied, along with an updated body style and 20- / 21-inch, front to rear, covering the larger braking system. More details on the sports car are limited at this time.
