Porsche 992 GT3 RS – Launch on August 17, 2022

The rumor mill has been bubbling for a long time, but now the launch date has been set: Porsche will present the 992 GT3 RS to the global public on Aug. 17, 2022. Andreas Preuninger, Head of Porsche’s GT department, gave the first hints about the development direction of the new trackday king from Zuffenhausen.

The development of the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS was inspired by the 911 RSR and GT3R racers

According to Preuninger, the Porsche 992 spearhead’s development focus was shifted even more on aerodynamics and chassis. We are curious to see what surprises the Porsche 992 GT3 RS will offer. After all, the normal GT3 with the newly designed double wishbone front axle was already a real revolution.

On the engine side, no major leaps are planned. The proven 4.0-liter boxer engine from the GT3 with about 500 hp proved to be the perfect basis for trackdays and club racing anyway. With its extremely fast response and what is currently probably the best sounding engine in a production vehicle, it leaves nothing to be desired in the Cayman GT4 RS as well.

The aerodynamics are very reminiscent of GT3 racing cars

In the pictures shown so far, we are treated with some extremely racey features. If the already mighty 992 GT3 rear wing with its distinctive gooseneck wasn’t enough, it is likely to be even larger on the Porsche 992 GT3 RS. The air scoops in the front hood also look like they have been taken directly from the GT3 paddock.

The front fenders are also particularly striking. As it seems, these are not only extremely widened, but in combination with the air scoops in the upper area and the outlet in front of the doors also provide great aerodynamic importance.

The Porsche 992 GT3 RS launch will be broadcast live

Porsche will take account of the great media interest in what is probably one of the last genuine naturally aspirated sports cars. The presentation will start on Wednesday, August 17, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. CEST. it will be broadcast live at Porsche News TV.

We are extremely excited about the latest creation from the Porsche GT department. Especially since the end of an era could be heralded anyway in view of the possible ban on combustion engines in 2035.
