2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, All you want to know & watch about a Great Car

 

2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS Weissach Pack Sets a Windy Nürburgring Lap Time

Strong winds and cooler temperatures didn’t stop the new 992 911 GT3 RS from achieving an impressive time.

The 2022 Porsche 911 GT3 was the 2022 MotorTrend Performance Vehicle of the Year, but the newer, track-focused and aero adorned 2023 Porsche 911 GT3 RS is now even faster. To prove the RS was worth all of the engineering trouble and investment, Porsche has taken its new RS to the Nürburgring to set a blistering quick new lap time.

Porsche brand ambassador Jörg Bergmeister, who was heavily involved in the vehicle’s development, piloted the new 992 911 GT3 RS around the nearly 13 mile stretch of the ‘Ring in a rapidly quick time of just 6:49:328 minutes, witnessed by a track official. Andreas Preuninger, Porsche’s director of its GT car program, said the RS faced some tough challenges setting its time, including a “strong headwind on the long straight of the Döttinger Höhe and cool asphalt temperatures.”

“We lost a little downforce due to the strong, sometimes gusting wind, but I’m still very happy with the lap,” says Bergmeister. “In the fast sections in particular, the 911 GT3 RS is in a league of its own. Here it’s on a level usually reserved for top-class racing cars. The car is also setting new standards in braking. Fast laps on the Nordschleife are simply so much fun in this car.”

The new lap time places the GT3 RS 10.6 seconds faster than the 911 GT3 it’s built from. It’s about one second behind the (turbocharged) Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series, and just ahead of the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ—and quite a bit ahead of the 918 Spyder.

Adapting a lot of equipment from Porsche’s motorsports background, the GT3 RS that lapped the ‘Ring features the optional Weissach package including Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R 275/35 R20 front and 335/30 R21 rear tires, lightweight magnesium wheels, and the tallest swan neck wing ever mounted on the back of a 911.

It’s powered by the GT3’s 4.0-liter flat-six naturally-aspirated engine with new camshafts, and power rises from 502 horsepower on the GT3 up to 518 hp on the GT3 RS. It’s linked to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with a shorter final-drive ratio, and weight sits at 3,268 pounds. Porsche says the GT3 RS cranks up to a total downforce of almost 1,900 pounds at just over 180 mph, which is three times as much as the standard GT3.
