Report: The Porsche 911 GT3 RS gets supposedly leaked, to sport 500hp

Axis of Oversteer claims it’s got its hands on a leaked spec sheet for the upcoming 911 GT3 RS. The most significant difference between this and the standard GT3 appears in the form of Stuttgart’s new, all-aluminum, naturally-aspirated flat six, purported to deliver 500 horsepower and 339 lb-ft of torque at 8800 rpm, if the rumors are to be believed. While this makes for only a slight improvement of 25 horsepower and 14 lb-ft over the existing GT3’s mill, the RS’s 1.6-inch wider track, beefier tires (265 in the front and 325 out back), and lighter materials all around should help the car get the most out of the new powerplant.

According to the leak, those weight savings will come in the form of a magnesium alloy roof, as well as a hood, rear lid, front fender, and spoiler made out of carbon fiber reinforced plastic. Inside, the seats and interior trim will be made of the same blend of carbon fiber and plastic. Combined with the RS’s flared arches and liberal venting throughout the body, this should not only make for one of the fastest 911s ever, but one of the meanest-looking as well.

The only news that may receive some grumbles from the clutch faithful concerns the lone transmission option – an auto-shifting, seven-speed PDK. The new RS is expected to be unveiled at Geneva early next month. See the spec sheet for yourself below (the differences over the standard GT3 are bolded), and let us know what you think in the comments.
