    Re: Limited edition GT3 RS rumor

    ...rumours suggest Porsche's new road-racer may be launched as the Porsche 911 GT3 RSR...

    In 2006/07, the Porsche 911 GT3 RSR race-car produced 485bhp from a 3.8-litre GT1-derived Mezger flat-six...

    Porsche 911 GT3 RSR (MY2007)

    Based on the current 911 GT3 RS, a particularly light and sporty derivative of the 911 GT3, the new GT3 RSR is designed to comply with the A.C.O (Automobile Club de l’Ouest), the FIA-GT and IMSA (International Motorsports Association) as well as VLN (Veedol Langstrecke Nuerburgring) regulations. Porsche decided to build the new GT3 RSR after analysing the A.C.O. and FIA regulations in a specification which allows a minimum weight of 1,225 kilograms (predecessor: 1,125 kgs) and permits the tyre width to be increased by two inches to now 14 inches. 35 kilograms of the required additional weight may be placed as ballast in the vehicle, contributing to a lower centre of gravity. 

    For the normally-aspirated Porsche engine this specification allows a capacity of 3.8-litres with two 30.3 millimetre air restrictors (predecessor: 3.6-litres, two restrictors with 29 mm diameter). The increase in displacement was achieved through the enlargement of the bore to 102.7 millimetres with the unchanged stroke of 76.4 mm. With the mandatory air restrictors, the unit delivers 359 kW/485 hp at 8,500 revs per minute. Maximum torque increased to 435 Nm. Top engine speed is reached at 9,000 rpm. Thanks to the increase in capacity and the corresponding reprogramming of the electronics the top performance as well as the response and driveability have further improved. The efficiency of the mid-front radiator was increased while the radiators flanking the centre unit on each side are the same as in the high performance Carrera GT.

    The latest GT3 RSR features the proven sequential six-speed gearbox with ignition cut of its forerunner. 

    The bodyshell of the GT3 RSR with the welded-in safety cage is ten percent stiffer than its predecessor. Distinctive wheel arches widen the body by 50 millimetres on each side. The track is enlarged correspondingly; wheels and tyres of the maximum allowable dimension can be fitted. 

    The relocation of the supplementary oil tank (option), the power steering and the battery to the front improve the weight distribution. The front and rear lids, the front mudguards, the wider rear, the doors as well as the front and rear panelling and wing consist of carbon-fibre composite material. The rear and side windows are manufactured from light polycarbonate. 

    The newly-developed aerodynamic package improves the aerodynamic efficiency compared to the forerunner (type 996 GT3 RSR) by around seven percent. Airflow to and from the radiators, the brakes and the engine were further optimised. In compliance with the FIA and A.C.O. regulations the new GT3 RSR features a flat underbody.

    The suspension with Porsche-optimised struts at the front and the Porsche multi-link axle at the rear corresponds to the configuration of the standard car. The modified kinematics are set-up for the wider tyre footprint and for the lowest possible camber change in rebound and compression. The new ZFSachs shock absorbers feature the Through-Rod-System with considerably lower chamber pressure and hence less friction than conventional dampers. As a result they offer a significantly improved response characteristic. The position of the rear axle was optimised. The axle features a new anti-rollbar, an adjustable upper link and an optimised lower link.

    The brake system features six-piston aluminium callipers and 35 millimetre thick brake discs measuring 380 mm in diameter at the front and 30 millimetre four-piston aluminium callipers with 355 mm diameter discs at the rear. 

    Over the 2006/07 winter, 35 units of the new racing sportscar will initially be built.

     The German price is Euro 203k incl. VAT.

    That means it'll cost around $185k USD if the typical ratio is maintained.

     

    I think I'm not saying anything by pointing out that the "typical" ratio is not maintained.

    Hint: Look at the GT2 RS prices in Europe and the US.  Smiley

    I also think that I can say without a problem that the last GT3 RS engine will also be the last Mezger derived engine in a Porsche 911 street production car.

    If you are a car collector, this car is definetely the one you want to have, trust me. Smiley

    P.S.: Thanks, Markus. Smiley

    On that basis, the 4.0L would cost $209k USD.  That's pretty expensive (more than double a Carrera GTS and almost double a base GT3 3.8), but I would LOVE to have this car.

    Re: Limited edition GT3 RS rumor

     That daft level of pricing, might just keep the 3.8 RS and GT3 prices up and negate the worry that this new car would result in prices of the existing cars being hammered. 

    The limited run will also help to ensure this.

    IMO I don't think any current 911 is worth that sort of money.

    RC,

    Given that the next generation GT3 should be out in c. 2 years (with significant technical improvements as always I imagine), and considering the price of this limited edition version, do you still think this 4.0L GT3 would be worth buying ?

    Thanks for the advice.

     Depends on what you are after ? 

    If you view PDK on the GT cars  being a technical improvement and only care about fast lap times then wait. 

    If you want an 'involved' pure  mechanical driving experience, which in my opinion is what makes the GT cars special then get a gen2 3.8 RS or GT3.

    If you want a garage queen 'involved' pure driving experience that you will never experience through fear of harming the cars value then register your interest and buy the 4.0 RS.  

    Sorry, but i see the 4.0 RS's being bought by collectors that will lock them away in heated garages, or speculators looking to turn an easy £25k to £30k. Just look at the GT2 RS cars listed in the UK market.

    If you are the sort of person looking to buy a 4.0 RS for a track weapon that will beat the 3.8RS, why not buy a cup car ?

    Thanks cdixon. Actually I currently have a gen2 GT3 RS, and I have to say I absolutely love it ! Everything is perfect about that car, the feeling, the chassis, the engine, the noice... And I regularly drive it on racetracks. That's why i am seriously considering this 4.0L car. But I wonder if the 50hp difference is really worth investing another 70-80k ...

     


    Re: Limited edition GT3 RS rumor

    I did give it some thought myself as i have an LOI in for the 991 RS (Just in case !).

    However i Love my Gen2 GT3 so much and cannot justify what will probably amount to £90k extra over my car for the 4.0 RS.... Change for the sake of it, as i cannot yet drive beyond the abilities of my GT3.

    Re: Limited edition GT3 RS rumor

     I hope they build less than 500. 500 is a LOT of cars considering how many standard 997s are built a year. They should build 100. I hope this car turns out like one of the coveted Porsches 10 years down the line (i.e 964 Turbo 3.6, 993 GT2, RS 2.7).

    And I'm not addressing anyone particular here, but I hate it when tuners get 800hp out of a 911, and everyone complains why Porsche can't do it too. Don't people realize it's not easy to produce such a heavily modified car on a 500 unit scale? I'd like to see a tuner do that. Smiley

     

     


    Re: Limited edition GT3 RS rumor

    The Cup car is too raw for street driving and can't be driven on road anyway.

    Different beasts.

    I think this RS 4L or whatever will be amazing, the ultimate 911 and the last one ever produced with the GT1 unit.

    A collector and a fantastic driver's car in one purchase.

    I would give it some thought if you'd already owned a 3.8L RS, but otherwise, it should be a great purchase, value should remain high in the long run.

    Stefan, you don't understand: I don't necessarily view these cars from a collector's/value point of view. These cars would be in my garage as keepers if money wouldn't matter (or not matter that much).   I don't have a clue about collector values/etc., cars are for driving and I think you share the same opinion.  

    The 430 Scuderia is just some mean piece of metal, I just love it but I can't afford it (money, social acceptance, maintenance, etc. etc. etc.).

    Have you read my post regarding the official data, release, design and price tag? As far as I heard, the new GT3 RS won't look much different than the old one. A decision which has raised some concerns within the Porsche marketing department, so there could be last minute changes but I doubt it. There also seem to have been technical issues with the engine development.

    I agree with the view that the 997 GT3 RS(R) 4.0-litre really needs to look distinctively different from the GT3 RS 3.8-litre, rather than just borrowing a few parts from the GT2 RS and offering a new paint scheme and decal...

    I wonder if Porsche's marketing department has acknowledged that Porsche owners' general reaction to the Porsche 918 Spyder has shifted significantly between (i) the original concept show car (e.g. "absolutely stunning, we all want one") and (ii) the order-book launch with a few dubious "design sketches" (?) and an overly ambitious price point, where most who originally expressed an interest now seem to be considering the alternatives...

    ...the 4.0-litre 500bhp (Mezger GT1-derived) motorsport engine in the new GT3 RS(R) will be awesome, but let's hope the rest of the package can meet Porsche owners' expectations!

    Apparently the GT3 RS 4-litre price list has been leaked... Smiley

    ...but is it the genuine article?

    Re: Limited edition GT3 RS rumor

    I don't have a clue, to be honest. The price tag doesn't seem to be right but my dealer just told me yesterday that there were some issues with customers who ordered the "Limited Edition" blindly and apparently all were shocked with the unofficially leaked 206000 EUR price tag. Another theory is that Porsche wanted to charge that much money for a really special edition model with a different body and even PDK but due to technial/approval issues, this project had been abandoned and the customers get practically the same GT3 RS, just with the 4.0/500 hp engine and a few chassis tweaks.

    I wish I knew more but something weird is going on because first cars are supposed to go to customers in May. Not much time left to officially announce the car.

    Re: Limited edition GT3 RS rumor

     Almost sure that list is fake, or altered in some way.Member "wtdoom" on TS says "breaks" is spelled wrong, the car will be a MY2012, not MY2011, the only Euro country with a 20% VAT is Italy, and Porsche always uses the PS and not BHP for Germany releases. (all thanks to "wtdoom" of Teamspeed for clearing that up!)

     


    Re: Limited edition GT3 RS rumor

    As ar as I know, GB also charges 20% VAT on cars. If someone considers, what companies such as Manthey charge for an engine upgrade with increased displacement on the GT3, the above price would be somewhat reasonable. To get one of the last GT3 with a genuine Mezger engine, with increased displacement that is, would certainly get me interested. Now where is my change...
