Porsche 911 GT3 RSR refreshed, unfortunately no 991

Porsche 911 GT3 RSR 2012

You did not expecting! Despite the introduction of the brand-new  Porsche 991 is still secretly a while with a 997 version at this time. And this is like the most expensive 911 version you can currently buy.

For the record: This Porsche is unsuitable  for road use. This 911 GT3 RSR you can still participate in races like the 24 hours of Le Mans and the FIA ​​World Endurance Championship. The 911 GT3 RSR to meet the latest ACO “LM” GTE regulations was it necessary for the RSR up to 48 millimeters wider than last year’s version.

The GT3 RSR is based on the 997 GT3 RS and the back is a 4.0 liter six cylinder boxer who squeezes 460 horsepower. That ability is so “low” because the rule for a restrictor in the air intake is placed. It’s like breathing through a thin straw.


Furthermore, Porsche compared to last year changed the air. Last year there was an air intake on the hood, but for 2012 there are vents in the hips. Like the 911 Turbo 911 GT2 RS.

It was, however, very necessary that Porsche came with an update for the 911 GT3 RSR, because this season they were truly humbled by the brand-new  Ferrari 458 GTC Italia. A racing version of the Porsche 991 we will expect until next year.

And what all the goodies should cost? If you 498,000 euro (+ taxes) leaves at Porsche Motorsport allowed you to pick one. And that is considerably more expensive than the version of this year. In 2011, the price is 410,000 euros and in 2008 he was quite cheap, because when you pay “only” 349,000 euros.
