Although the 911 GT3 RS wasn’t engineered for top speed, it demonstrates impressive straight-line performance. Powered by a naturally aspirated 6-cylinder engine generating 525 horsepower and 465 Newton meters of torque, Porsche claims the GT3 RS accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, with a top speed of 296 km/h.
AutoTopNL took the Porsche 911 GT3 RS to the Autobahn to test its limits. Few performance vehicles allow a rev limit of 9,000, producing a distinctive sound unmatched by turbocharged engines. The car achieved a speed of 301 km/h, slightly exceeding its official top speed of 296 km/h. However, modern speedometers tend to show a slightly higher speed than the real one. The speedometer showed 301 km/h, but according to GPS it was actually 290 km/h.
