Porsche 911 GT3 RS 2018 pricing and specs revealed

The most powerful naturally aspirated engine at 520 hp The four-liter, six-cylinder naturally aspirated engine from Porsche in the new 911 GT3 RS pushes the sports auto to new limits: The flat engine delivers 15 kW (20 hp) more than the engine in the previous model and the 911 GT3. The same engine in the previous GT3 RS and current standard GT3 is rated at 500 hp.

It is said to be lighter that the regular 3.9-litre unit, by using new exhaust manifolds, a lightweight crankshaft and flywheel, titanium con rods and carbon-fibre intake plenums.

Unlike the GT3, there will be no manual, but as it's been said and proven in the past, the 7-speed PDK is more suited for the kind of track work this vehicle is aimed at. As with all previous GT3 RSes, ride height, camber, caster, toe can be adjusted manually. The 911 GT3 RS can "only" manage 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds and its top speed is a mere 193mph.

We'll work with, obviously, anyone who can answer that question, but I cannot, at this time. There are no Russian military servicemen in that area, Russia's Defense Ministry said.

Autocar reports that the engine actually develops more power than is claimed and could have been homologated at 530 hp, but Porsche chose to err on the side of caution, quoting Porsche GT boss Andreas Preuninger. The current gen GT3 has nearly the same power from the 4.0-litre flat-six churning about 490 odd horses.

Porsche Motorsport began development of the new 911 GT3 RS not long after it started working on the GT2 RS, and it shows. Sadly, the new auto is expected to drop the rear-wheel-drive layout of its predecessors. Preuninger also told me his team spent a lot of time recalibrating the GT3 RS's electronically locking rear differential to give better performance on corner entry and exit. The RS's top speed is quoted as 312km/h.

The main aero changes involve the GT3-like front apron with a deeper chin spoiler, redesigned air intakes on the rear fenders, more aggressive rear wing side blades, along with a new rear bumper. To help shed weight, Porsche claims to have benefited from all kinds of weight reduction such as carbon fiber seats, lightweight door panels and a new carbon bootlid. Super light and ridiculously pricey magnesium wheels (US$13,000) can also be added to the Weissach equation to bring the ultimate 911 GT3 RS package down to 1,430kg. The new 911 GT3 RS will land at dealerships this fall.

There's Another iOS bug Crashing iPhones, iMessage and Other Apps
As soon as the message is received, Apple's operating system crashes and you have no way of resurrecting your messaging apps. This is apparently to enhance adoption of new features, such as Core ML, SiriKit, and ARKit, that all are a part of iOS 11 .

As with all current GT models, the Clubsport package is also available at no extra cost. The result: The 2019 911 GT3 RS produces more than twice as much downforce as the regular 911 GT3 at 124 miles per hour.

The GT3 RS is already available to order in South Africa and it's priced from R3 220 000, which is a R470 000 premium over the normal GT3.
