Porsche isn’t bothering to hide anything on its facelifted 911 GT3 RS sports car.
Set to make its debut in a few weeks at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, photos of the updated 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 RS actually leaked earlier this month. But this is the first time spy photographers have caught it on camera completely undisguised, while it undergoes winter testing in Scandinavia. Now sporting its production front and rear ends, we can see the 911 GT3 RS receives a sportier front bumper along with a new lower front lip, air intakes, and vents on the hood.
Overall, the changes aren’t significant, as expected for a facelift. The rear fascia has been updated and the large rear wing remains.
There has, however, been a slight bump in performance from the naturally aspirated 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine. Power output is now at 520 horsepower, a gain of 20 hp, and the powerplant will continue to be mated to a seven-speed PDK transmission. Look for a zero-to-60 time of 3.2 seconds, and a top speed of around 192 mph.
More details will be announced when the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 RS makes its official debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, so check back with AutoGuide.com as we will be reporting live from the show floor.
