Mega photo gallery of Porsche 911 GT3 RS and GT3 Cup from Frankfurt

What you have here is a huge photo gallery showing live pictures from Frankfurt of the new Porsche models. All the Porsche fans out there must be thrilled by the fact that the German automaker has presented a couple new models at the 2009 edition of the Frankfurt Auto Show, including the second generation of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS and the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup that is a factory prepared racing car. Thus, all real Porsche fans will be thrilled by the below photo gallery.

As you all well know, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is considered to be the most powerful and hardcore Porsche 911 in history. As a short reminder, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS gets its power from a 3.8 liter flat six cylinders naturally aspired engine that has an output of 450 horsepower. Thanks to this powerful engine, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS manages to reach a maximum speed of 312 km/h while accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds. Other very interesting features include pronounced wheel arch covers that increase the span across the nose and that house 19 inch alloy wheels with 325/30 ZR19 tires at the back and 245/35 ZR19 tires at the front.

Porsche claims that the aerodynamics of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS develops even more downforce in comparison to the standard GT3. The conventional battery of the car was replaced with a lithium ion battery that is lighter by 10 kilograms than a conventional lead battery. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS also benefits from a huge rear wing with aluminum supports that obviously has the role to improve the aerodynamics and downforce of the car.

The German automaker has stated that the Porsche 911 GT3 RS will hit the European market (or at least most of it…) until the end of this year while the potential buyers from the USA and the UK will have to wait until the first months of the next year.
