Banking left-hand corner ahead. That means rebounding from the compression experienced in the dip on the right-hand side of the tarmac. Approaching the imminent left-hand corner from the outside and turning into the apex to ride the kerbs. Preferably not just the once. But again and again and again. That’s exactly what the chassis of the new 911 GT3 RS has been engineered for.
In conjunction with a series of specifically tuned chassis components, this means that the new 911 GT3 RS offers extraordinary agility, a high degree of driving safety in the high speed range and extremely stable handling.
The lightweight, independent front suspension combines McPherson-type struts with helper springs and longitudinal and transverse links. The rear axle has a multi-link suspension with helper springs and chassis subframe following the LSA concept (lightweight, stable, agile). Camber, track and the anti-roll bars can be individually adapted for use on the race track.
Our engineers spent plenty of hours fine-tuning the driving dynamics setup. Based on established racing strategy, the ride rates of the springs at the front and rear axles of the new GT3 RS have been significantly increased. At the same time, the roll rates have been reduced by the use of a softer antiroll bar. Damping characteristics have been optimally adapted to these new parameters.
Positive result: a significant increase in traction and stability when cornering at speeds of over 155 mph.
For the absolute maximum level of performance possible, all suspension joints have also been replaced by ball joints. These provide a particularly firm connection between the suspension and the body. For precise, sharp and direct handling.
Result: a further increase in dynamic performance – and precision. The nicest challenges are still the ones we encounter time and time again.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
