There’s good and bad news for the 991-based Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Let’s get the bad news out of the way first. The rollout of the RS will most likely be delayed thanks to the engine replacement scheme for the flame-happy 911 GT3. Originally due for unveiling in the next few months it’s now uncertain when the RS will be launched.
Now for the good news. After initial reports suggesting the GT3 RS would be a PDK-only affairâ€”as the regular GT3 proved to beâ€”there is now talk that a manual ‘box may be offered after all. At least that’s the word from Car & Driver who claim sources have told them Porsche is “strongly considering” a manual transmission for the RS.
