For Porsche fans, the wait is over: the new 911 GTS RS has been officially revealed at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Boasting a new developed flat-six, 4.0-liter naturally aspirated engine, this infamous roadster can put out 500 HP and 340 lb-ft of torque, which allows it to hit 62mph in just 3.3 seconds before topping off at 200 mph. Power is channeled through to the rear axle via a revised 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission system that works with a fully variable locking differential. In terms of styling, a new aluminum body combines with a magnesium roof and a carbon fiber hood and other lightweight additions to shave off another 10 kg from the last generation 911 GT3. Newly updated front wings with air ducts, a prominent splitter, and a big wing at the back are also very noticeable additions. Inside the cabin, things look a bit more familiar with body-colored upholstery and stitching, an Alcantara-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel, and carbon fiber accents on the dash. Expected to arrive at dealerships in a few months, now is the time to start counting your change. €181,690 to be exact.
