Exploring the 2024 Porsche 911 GT3 RS in detail.
Aerodynamics and design
The 2024 911 GT3 RS features a state-of-the-art aerodynamic design that plays a pivotal role in enhancing its high-performance capabilities. Each contour and element of the car’s exterior has undergone meticulous crafting to optimize aerodynamic efficiency and elevate its prowess on the track. Porsche explains: “The new 911 GT3 RS is set up for performance – thanks to increased downforce and revised aerodynamics. Using all vehicle data, including longitudinal/lateral acceleration, accelerator/brake pedal position and friction values, even the position of the rear wing and front diffuser are automatically adjusted to the driving situation in split seconds by Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA) with DRS. Best prerequisites for the next flying lap.”
Additionally, the front axle’s new aerodynamic wishbones enhance downforce by minimizing turbulence and optimizing the flow rate behind the bars, “by up to 88 lbs at top speed”, states Porsche. According to Porsche, the wide turbo body with an air intake panel plays a pivotal role in optimizing the aerodynamics of the 911 GT3 RS, simultaneously accentuating its athletic aesthetics. It also creates room for wider wheels, enhancing the overall handling capabilities of the vehicle.
The latest Porsche GT3 RS exemplifies the pinnacle of lightweight construction. By incorporating carbon fiber reinforced plastic, it attains a remarkably low curb weight of only 3268 lbs. Porsche goes on to add, “The CFRP rear wing with active aerodynamics, CFRP doors for optimized wheel arch vents, and aluminum and magnesium lightweight forged wheels also yield significant advantages on the race track.”
