Both cars are powered by a normally-aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine, sending power to the rear wheels via a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The ‘old’ GT3 RS is more powerful, though, making 513 horsepower (382 kilowatts) and 347 pound-feet (470 Newton-meters) of torque. The new GT3 only makes 503 hp (375 kW) and the same amount of pull.
In terms of weight, the new 911 GT3 is also a bit heavier than the GT3 RS – and when we say a bit, we mean their difference is only 11 pounds (5 kilograms).
Then again, 0-62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour) time for both differ slightly as well, with the 911 GT3 RS rated to do it in 3.2 seconds. The GT3 is slower by only 0.2 seconds.
With all the numbers laid down here, it seems like there’s one way to settle the dispute between the two – a drag race. And of course, what other YouTube channel does straight-line races most frequently than carwow.
