The Porsche 911 GT3 is a high performance version of the Porsche 911 sports car primarily intended for racing. It is a line of high-performance models, which began with the 1973 911 Carrera RS. The GT3 is named after the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) Group GT3 class in which it was designed to compete. A number of variations, designed for road and track duty, have been introduced since its launch in 1999. More than 14,000 911 GT3 cars have been produced.
Porsche launched the Porsche 911 GT3 RS at the Geneva Motor Show in 2015. Compared to the 991 GT3, the front fenders are now equipped with louvers above the wheels and the rear fenders now include Turbo-like intakes, rather than an intake below the rear wing. The roof is made from magnesium. The interior includes full bucket seats, carbon-fibre inserts, and the Club Sport Package as standard (a bolted-on roll cage behind the front seats). The 3.8-litre unit found in the 991 GT3 is replaced with a 4.0-litre unit with 500 hp (373 kW) and 339 lb·ft (460 N·m) of torque. The transmission is PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung, dual-clutch transmission) only. The drivetrain delivers 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.3 seconds and 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) in 10.9 seconds. The 991 GT3 RS also comes with functions such as declutching by "paddle neutral" — comparable to pressing the clutch with a conventional manual gearbox –- and Pit Speed limiter button. As with the 991 GT3, there is rear-axle steering and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus with fully variable rear axle differential lock. The Nürburgring Nordschleife time is 7 minutes and 20 seconds.
