Engine power increased. Weight reduced. Outstanding lap times in every test going – our engineers could well have settled for the advancements achieved by the predecessor to the new 911 GT3 RS. Instead, they have honed the character of the new 911 GT3 RS once more. With the optional Weissach package.
Since the Weissach package was first offered in a similar form for the
Aesthetics and lightweight construction here form a real synthesis in which the particular focus is on saving weight. As a result, the Weissach package will reduce the weight of your 911 GT3 RS by approximately another 18 kg. That's because, for example, the anti-roll bars on the front and rear axles, their coupling rods and the roof are made of carbonfibre reinforced plastic (CFRP). The Weissach package can optionally also be fitted with forged magnesium wheels painted in
Visually, on the other hand, there have been gains. With the front lid and roof in carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) with a carbon-weave finish, and the large ‘PORSCHE’ logo on the rear wing.
The principle of lightweight construction continues in the interior. The bolt-in roll cage is made of titanium and is approximately 12 kg lighter than the steel roll cage of the Clubsport package.
Every gramme counts, and so does every detail. For this reason, the ultra-light gearshift paddles and the steering wheel trim are in carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) with a carbon-weave finish. In their search for further weight savings, our vehicle developers have even made the carpet trim lighter.
There were two things that we didn’t want to do without: the Weissach package logo on the headrests and the plaque on the cupholder cover. Their one and only function: to express the pride we have for the Weissach package.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO2 emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
