2016 991.1 GT3RS


Continuing on the path of its predecessors, the newest 911 GT3 RS arrives packing 500 horsepower and 338 lb-ft of torque courtesy of a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six hanging off the back end, where God and Ferdinand Porsche intended. Sharp-eyed aficionados will be quick to point out that those numbers are nearly spot on with those of the 2012 GT3 RS 4.0, matching it in displacement and horsepower while losing a single pound-foot somewhere along the way. This, we can live with. More disconcerting, however, is that a seven-speed PDK is the only available transmission in the 2016 car, at least at launch. (As we have reported, however, a manual is being seriously considered for later.) On the upside, a paddle-neutral feature and a button for limiting pit-lane speed are standard, and the RS also gets a shorter rear axle ratio than the standard 911 GT3, which should provide for hastier takeoffs.
