Porsche 911 GT3 RS Could Get Turbo Power

First there’s no manual transmission for the Porsche GT3 RS, and now it could be turbocharged?

Porsche is looking to turn away from tradition with its next 911 GT3 RS model with a turbocharged engine. Following the high-profile engine fire recall on the 991 generation GT3, Porsche is reportedly examining other, more reliable options to offer a more powerful engine for its even faster GT3 RS model.

As a result, a turbocharged powerplant is under consideration to help deliver the extra power needed without compromising reliability. The use of such an engine would also fit into the growing segment of supercars that employ turbochargers.

Additionally, the 911 GT3’s rear-wheel steering system is under consideration for the Cayman later in the model’s life cycle.
