Is This The New Porsche 911 GT3 RS And Is It Turbocharged?

With the recent bruhaha surrounding the engines of the Porsche 911 GT3, we seem to have forgotten that there's a GT3 RS coming. Is this it leaked in scale model form? Because it looks damn amazing. And wait, are those intercooler inlets we see?

The RS is always the finely tuned, track honed version of the already finely tuned and track honed GT3. That means we get more aero improvements, more weight reduction, more cooling, more power, and more aggressive everything.

But here's something interesting: This GT3 RS, if that is its real name, has inlets for an intercooler which means turbochargers. TURBOCHARGERS. The GT3 RS has always been about revving, not whooshing, but there have been some recent rumors about the RS going the snail route.

Perhaps the question we should be asking here is if this is actually a 911 GT2 leaked in model form. Because if the GT3 RS goes turbocharged, I'm sure my head will explode.

We've asked Porsche what the hell this is.

The most notable changes seem to be outlets on the front quarter, Turbo-style inlets in the rear and the lack of typical stickers/graphics. A new direction apparently, maybe even a turbo engine if the rumours are true.
