With 518 horsepower and top aerodynamic elements, the 2023 road-legal racer has proved to be a force to be reckoned with, redefining the meaning of power amongst its turbocharged competition. By manipulating the airflow outside of the engine, engineers have created a more aggressive aerodynamic 911 GT3 RS that adjusts performance based on how efficiently the body moves through the environment around it. Different from previous models, the 911 GT3 RS relies on the large, angled center radiator at the car’s nose. The adjusted silhouette allows for more room around the sides to accommodate more active aerodynamic elements.
For the first time for a Porsche, a drag reduction system (DRS) is fitted, allowing the vehicle to achieve a low drag and higher speeds on straight sections of a track. With DRS, the wings are flattened out with just a push of a button, activating a broader range. The aesthetics of the new model is heavily reliant on the functional aerodynamic elements. Perhaps the most prominent feature of the vehicle is the rear wing, evidently larger due to it consisting of the main wing and an upper, hydraulically adjusted wing element.

The new 911 GT3 RS is now available for order and starts at €229,517 EUR or approximately $233,525 USD.
