Finally we have a glimpse of the next Porsche 911 GT3 RS in all its naked, camouflage-less glory, double-bubble roof and all.
The images can be seen at Total911, whose spies caught four of the cars playing in the snows of Northern Sweden. That double-bubble roof – a direct trickle-down from bona fide race cars – is just one of several notable, racy aerodynamic features on the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The same double-bubble is echoed on the car’s hood, as well.
Of course, probably the most obvious race-derived piece of aerodynamic wizardry is the impending rear wing, which would look quite at home on a GT3 Cup car. And then there are the subtler touches, like the extraction vents perched atop each of the front fenders, intended to create low-pressure areas over the front wheels for added downforce. Additionally, the rear bumper has gained two more extraction slits than on the standard 991 GT3 (pictured above).
Some details remain unknown, however; Total911 asserts that recent testing videos put to rest any turbocharging rumors, but they can’t so definitively rule-out the possible return of the 4.0 liter Mezger flat-6 mill found in the Type 997 GT3 RS.
For now, we can’t rule anything out. And frankly, we don’t want to; let it be a nice surprise for us, eh?
