Porsche 911 GT3 RS - racing car for ordinary roads.

When the 1999 Porsche 996, the next generation of the 991st water-cooled engine, was all puzzled: would it really be a good race car? But there was no reason to worry, 911 GT3 (and later RS and RSR) were the most successful cars of the company. He took first place in Grand American, ALMS and many more European races. In addition, he is one of the main contenders for victory in LeMans.

Like the real 1973 Carrera RS, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is lightweight, powerful, with a luxury cabin, improved suspension, with special wheels, tires and brakes.

Technical specifications Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Create a car that will allow you to reach a new level of performance - this task was faced by the developers of Porcshe GT3 RS. To maximize the efficiency of the engine, the optimization of the air supply and air filter system, as well as the revision of the injection system, were possible. Due to this, the car accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in just 3.5 seconds, reaching a speed limit of 309.6 km / h.

The brake system was equipped with discs made of ceramics. The ratio of mass to power plays an important role: 3 to 1, respectively.

Recently, in the autumn of 2010, a new racing model of this car was presented, which received the prefix "Cup". There is information about the participation of this car in the Porsche Cup, which is held in the United Kingdom. After which she will participate in the championship of Porsche MobilOne Supercup.

Appearance Porsche GT3 RS

For the first time, the Porsche GT3 RS was seen in the US when it was tested in the state of Georgia. But at that time, the camouflage was so dense that the cars hid under it almost completely. But testing in the winter time was almost "naked" for new products.

You should pay attention to the rear spoiler, which is likely to go into mass production. Also, new "pit" cooling air ducts of the brakes located on the front wings will be added, and rough lateral air intakes, expressing aggression.

The main difference between the RS version and the previous models will be the seven-speed sports car gearbox with no alternative gearbox. Specially for this model were produced tires Michelin 265/35 ZR 20 for the front wheels and 325/30 ZR 21 for the rear.

Test Drive

Machines "Porsche" has always been famous for its high quality and fast ride. Studying rumors, you can find out that according to the assumptions the new GT3 will be able to round the Nurburgring in just 7 minutes and 20 seconds. And it turned out.

After the ride, you can say that the compartment has become very obedient: this is indicated by the latest technology of turning the rear wheels. Under it, it means turning in the direction opposite to the front wheels, which makes it very easy to maneuver both in the city and on the track. The steering is perfectly tuned and equipped with an electric booster, demonstrating accuracy and "transparency". Pottery on the brakes is very noisy, but gives an excellent slowdown to the car.

Porsche planted this car on a carbon-fiber "diet" and equipped with magnesium roof, which allows to reduce the load on the center of gravity. Now it becomes clear how the compartment with a body length of 4.545 mm weighs only 1.420 kg.

Work on weight loss was reflected in the salon. Door handles are replaced with fabric loops, and the seats are highlighted thanks to red seams and inserts. The dials are traditionally marked with yellow arrows and are in five separate wells. In the middle we see a white and a large tachometer, in which a digital speedometer is inserted. On both sides are located sensors for the temperature of the coolant and the remainder of the fuel in the tank.

This model once again showed that the "Porsche" does not change the principles of these "fighters".

It's like she feels the owner and the road: in case the driver overdo it anywhere, always "Traction control" will come to his aid and correct the situation.
