Et en marge du Mondial de Paris 2022... - La nouvelle Porsche 911 GT3 RS impressionne

And on the sidelines of the 2022 Paris World Cup…


“And on the sidelines of the 2022 World Cup”…

Why this section? Because there are many new products this fall, and you certainly expect to see them all on our mini “Mondial de l’auto” site, where you traditionally find new models from all manufacturers.

However, several manufacturers having chosen not to be present at this edition of the Paris Motor Show 2022, a certain number of new products will not be exhibited at Porte de Versailles in Paris, and in particular the one presented in this article. In order to give you an exhaustive view and meet your expectations, we have nevertheless chosen to publish them on the Caradisiac mini-site dedicated to the Paris Motor Show, but in a special section “And on the sidelines of the Paris Motor Show Auto”.

The favorite Porsche of purists and true driving enthusiasts has had a facelift. And the least we can say is that it really sets the bar very high. The recent 911 GT3 type 992 already did as well as the old 911 GT3 RS type 991 thanks to its new double wishbone front suspensions, its interesting aerodynamic downforce and its optional Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tires. But after a particularly exciting Cayman 718 GT4 RS to drive, the all-new 911 GT3 RS Type 992 has everyone in agreement with an extraordinarily radical technical approach.

Impossible not to notice the gigantic rear wing, higher than the roof, the upper part of which can be lowered on the straights via a “DRS” button to increase the top speed on the circuit (also serving as an airbrake). A spoiler that helps provide 409 kilos of downforce at 200 km/h and even 860 kilos of downforce at 285 km/h. Unheard of for a road Porsche (even compared to the old 991 GT2 RS), with values ​​almost at the level of racing GTs! The comparison with racing cars is not just a stylistic effect. The GT3 RS sacrifices the front trunk to place a large radiator, exactly like the recent 911 GT3 R competition. Its suspensions also offer a range of settings worthy of Porsches banned from the road: shock absorbers whose compression and rebound can be modified separately, and even a configurable differential via one of the buttons on the steering wheel. As for the front suspension wishbones, they also provide aerodynamic support.

Instead of the 520 horsepower of the old 911 GT3 RS type 991, the new version boasts 525 horsepower. This is 15 more than the 911 GT3 type 991, thanks mainly to a revised high engine. The 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox benefits from a shortened ratio (296 km/h only at top speed) and the car claims an empty weight of 1,450 kg (15 more than the 911 GT3 despite the aerodynamic parts in addition). The 0 to 100 km / h is dispatched in 3.2 seconds but it is above all the driving experience that promises with such a sharp chassis on paper. Alas, it will cost €50,000 more than the GT3: €234,977 in France, without the optional Weissach pack to reduce the mass as much as possible!

Caradisiac, partner of the Paris Motor Show

As in 2018, Caradisiac is once again a partner in 2022 of the Mondial de l’Auto which will take place in Paris from October 17 to 23. The Caradisiac editorial team will thus be relocated to its own stand for the duration of the show to analyze, dissect, photograph and film all the new models. And this will of course also be an opportunity for you to come, as you are used to, to meet our journalists. Which new or used car to buy? They will answer all your questions.

Until then, we will give you on Caradisiac all the information that we could have obtained from the manufacturers on their new models.
