Porsche could be ready to introduce a new 911 GT3 RS Limited Edition which is rumored to feature a 4.0-liter flat six engine.

The redesigned Porsche 911 is set to be unveiled later this year, but that hasn't stopped the company from launching an assortment of special editions for the current model.

If recent reports are correct, the ever expanding lineup will gain another variant dubbed the 911 GT3 RS Limited Edition. The specifics are still kind of murky, but the car will reportedly feature a new 4.0-liter flat-six engine with 500 PS (368 kW / 493 hp) which is 50 PS (37 kW / 49 hp) more than the standard model. Furthermore, the vehicle could be outfitted with the new PDK-S transmission which promises near instantaneous gear shifts.

The GT3 RS LE will reportedly be unveiled on April 7th, so stay tuned for more information.
