In what could be a remarkable move from the past, Porsche is reportedly considering turbocharged induction for the next generation 911 GT3 RS. The most hardcore and track-focused of Porsche’s 911 line-up, the GT3 RS was originally supposed to be revealed this summer but has been delayed now. Porsche have discovered a fault with the current 475 PS 3.8 litre flat-six engine that the GT3 RS was originally supposed to share in an uprated form.
If Porsche does indeed consider turbocharging for the GT3 RS, it will definitely augment power and torque figures without placing too much strain on the engine. This would also fit in with the current trend of turbocharging in the supercar segment.
In other news, the 911 GT3’s rear-wheel drive system is being considered for a future iteration of the Cayman. The new Cayman will also be the first Porsche to get the firm’s new four-cylinder turbo petrol engine, which is expected to have a maximum power output of over 400PS.
