The Porsche 911 GT3 RS made a big splash debuting at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, but now it seems not everything with the car’s performance is perfect.

 

An owner of a 911 GT3 RS has disclosed a surprising problem with the aerodynamic body kit of the car. He is reporting that it is generating a massive amount of downforce that can’t be coped by the suspension.

 

Using a stock version of the car on the Nnurburgring, he explains the downforce on the front axle is so high the front wheels are kissing the fenders and the bumper. After a few laps, the front indicators, downforce grille and inner wheel arc were completely destroyed.

 

 

The GTR RS is 10 kg lighter that the GT3 and needs 7:20 min to lap the famous German track. The 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration takes only 3.3 seconds, while top speed reaches more than 322 km/h (200 mph).
