    The first patent photos of the 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS have surface online.
    Discovered by Car Magazine, the pictures reveal the model will follow in the footsteps of the 911 GT3but adopt a muscular hood and wider, ventilated front fenders. Moving further back, there's double bubble roof, lightweight wheels and rear fenders from the 911 Turbo. The model also has a new engine cover and a sporty rear wing.
    Inside, there's sports seats and a roll cage that resides where the rear seats would normally be located.
    Porsche has been relatively coy about the model but it could use a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that develops more than 475 PS (349 kW). It will likely be paired exclusively to a PDK transmission which has been specifically tuned for use in the model.

    Patent photos leak out the design of the 2015/2016 Porsche 911 (991) GT3 RS and it will have rear engine intakes

    It looks like some of the questions about the upcoming 991 GT3 RS have been settled thanks to these leaked patent photos. The first question was whether for the first time ever a production 911 GT3 RS model would have Turbo inspired engine intake at the rear. The answer is year. It looks like Porsche wants to make sure the engine gets cool air so that no embarrassing engine fire issues pop up again.

    The cosmetic items are easy to spot. The intakes, the roll cage, the wider body work, the aggressive wheels, etc. The question remains as to what is under the hood. It likely is a mildly tweaked version of the 991 GT3 3.8 liter flat-6.

    Rumors persist about a turbocharged powerplant but spy videos of the test car on the 'Ring sound like the high revving GT3 mill is under the hood. It is unlikely Porsche will turbocharge the GT3 RS as they never have before and where would that leave a potential 991 GT2?

    Expect the official reveal with more details in the next few months.

    I'm very excited for this thing. I will bet any amount of money that it will be NA...anyone wants to take me up on that, I will gladly take the other side.

    I think it's going to be NA. The turbo stuff is just people pulling stuff out of thin air.
