PORSCHE 911 GT3 RS LIMITED EDITION
Various reports are suggesting that Porsche is preparing to launch a limited edition of the new generation 911 GT3 RS. Although details are scarce at the moment, we did learn that the future Porsche 911 GT3 RS Limited Edition will have a 200 cc larger engine in comparison to the standard engine. Don’t you just love Porsche? When other car makers release a limited edition, it’s usually about a few badges, go-faster stripes and new rims. When Porsche does it, they just go for more “power!”.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS Limited Edition is have a 4.0-liter engine developing 500 hp, which is an 50 horsepower over the base model. The regular 2010 911 GT3 RS is already developed with the race track in mind, so what could a performance imited edition offer in addition to that? Apparently, the limited edition 911 GT3 RS will have an even more extreme suspension setup, will be lighter and some speculate that it will get a double-clutch transmission. If this will be the case, we could also add bigger brakes, and possibly some aerodynamic enhancements for increased downforce.
