    If this is in fact the GT3RS then why does it have the side intake scoops like a turbo car, could it be possible the new GT3Rs will have a turbo engine??

    Normally aspirated 991 RSR has these too...

    Not so large but at the same spot, covered with mesh.

    Wouldn't it make sense to be turbocharged with future GT3-regs in mind? Not saying I'm praying for it, quite the opposite.

     It's been suggested and debated, but I think normally aspirated.

    The question is how much more power are they going to extract from the naturally aspirated 3.8 liter engine safely for a production road car. After all they keep on adding power with every gen car. Its a matter of time they either increase the engine size or go turbo.

    Some rumors suggest 4.0L with over 500hp...

    Re: 2015 Porsche 991 GT3 RS spy photos

    4.0 would be nice, the old 4.0 is still my dream car.


    Re: 2015 Porsche 991 GT3 RS spy photos

    Since there is no more GT2 (Turbo S is too fast) and given that the new RS looks crazy over the top... I know for sure it will be a great 4.0L machine with at least 550hp.

    Any thoughts on the fuel access door?  Is that final, or just a result of cammo/non-final part fitment?


    Re: 2015 Porsche 991 GT3 RS spy photos

    By the way, Porsche, I'm really liking the newer side intake shape.  Less bling, and reminiscent of the '98 993TTS.  I hope this is final.

    Personal taste here, of course.  YMMV

    I keep thinking, that fuel door is a fake, there will be a central tank filler door right in the middle of the hood.

    Re: 2015 Porsche 991 GT3 RS spy photos

    Does the front fender look more flared compared to the current turbo car? I think it is and that is why the fuel door is sunk in.

    That would be cool, but not so practical for a road car, I think.  Of course, the GT3RS is not so practical for a road car in other ways too.  Good suspicion there...

    4.0L and 550hp would mean 137.5 hp/L.  That is a pretty difficult target to meet - would be a new world record for specific output by naturally aspirated road-legal motor.  I think the current champion is the 458 Speziale with 133.  Porsche is at a big disadvantage by having to use 6 large displacement cylinders - easier to make high specific output with smaller cylinders (and smaller/lighter moving parts like pistons, valves, etc.).

    Re: 2015 Porsche 991 GT3 RS spy photos

    550 hp out of 4.0 L naturally aspirated, the car would scream If it reved Over 8000 RPM.

    It would likely need to rev over 9,000 rpm to make that much power
