The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is now in Sweden for cold-weather testing. Our spies have 35 pictures of it, and the shots provide a comprehensive look at the upcoming performance model’s current state of development.
The development team is putting a clear emphasis on the way the RS cuts through the air. The front fascia is similar to the one on the standard GT3. There’s tape over each corner, so the company has something to hide. In addition, the vents in the hood are significantly larger than on the regular model.
Things get even more complicated along the side, and Porsche tries hard to hide the pieces there. There appear to be vents along the top and a vertical flying buttress. Our spies note that the RS has doors with revised sculpting along the lower portion. Look closely at the rear fenders, and you can notice a large panel that is hiding inlets.
At the back, there’s a swan-neck wing, and the engineers put material on the uprights to conceal their actual design. Videos show that it’s capable of active adjustments to switch between high- and low-downforce configurations. Strakes guide air into the rear deck, and there’s tape on the section in the center.
