Porsche has thundered into the 2018 Geneva motor show with its updated 911 GT3 RS, injecting extra power, a revised chassis and tweaked aerodynamics into its a lot of track focused 911 offering. prices will start from £141,346.
The exterior styling hasn’t changed all that much, with similar tweaks to the front and rear light designs as seen on the current 911s. A redesigned front bumper made from lightweight polyurethane features as well, although the evolution of the car’s look has been informed by aerodynamic optimisation and additional performance, rather than style.

Further new touches on the Porsche 911 GT3 RS include brake cooling louvres in the front bootlid, while the huge rear spoiler is borrowed from the GT2 RS and sits higher than before. new forged alloy wheels are fitted, shaving 100g from the wheels found on the outgoing GT3 RS. Elsewhere, a tweaked rear diffuser contributes to an eight per cent improve in downforce, but a slightly reduced drag coefficient.
However, the bulk of the GT3 RS’s changes aren’t visible to the naked eye. due to air intake revisions and a new titanium exhaust, Porsche has squeezed an extra 20bhp and 10Nm of torque out of the 4.0-litre naturally aspirated flat six, taking it to 513bhp and 470Nm.
