Porsche GT4 RS Speculative

Here's our interpretation of the RS version of the recently unveiled GT4. In a few words, we tweaked the aerodaynamics a little, rear bumper features side vents, side skirts are slightly lower and more aerodynamic, engine scoop behind the door is now carbon fiber for weight reduction. Front fender got the same treatment as the rear one, slightly enlarged, while the front one is ventilated.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Porsche has finally revealed the most hardcore, road going, 911 variant, the GT3 RS. The pinacle of this model is it's weight, it sums up to 1420kg, due to it's aluminium body, combined with magnesium roof and carbon fiber inserts.
 
It also features all sorts of aerodynamic gimnicks, like proeminent vented front fenders, ducktail like spoiler, which pushes the car even more at high speeds, front lip and rear apron were modified.

2015 Ford Focus RS


Let's face it, we've been expecting it ever since they announced the ST model and Ford didn't let us down, here's what the "new kid on the block" can do. 

Engine, yes, there's EcoBoost, the same 2.3L unit that powers the Mustang and it develops 315HP and it's AWD and it has a 6-speed manual gearbox, which was updated to match the new torque - an exact figure hasn't been released yet.

2013 Renault Clio Cup


Based on the recent released RS, the Clio Cup comes with a welded roll cage, a strong monocoque chassis and an aerodynamic package that helps it handle better at high speeds. It came to replace the old Cup model, that's been participating in competitions since 2006.

The new Clio Cup is powered by the same 1.6-liter direct-injected turbo unit, tuned by Oreca Magny-Cours that produces 220 hp and a constant torque of 270 Nm. Gear changes are done by a Sadev six-speed sequential transmission that shifts gears in just 100 milliseconds.

2014 Range Rover Sport RS


After months of inactivity on the speculative scene, we're back! There's plenty of cars and models to speculate, but our artist, Nik Pakiz, chose to give this rather interesting car a go.

There has been some rumors and spy shots of an even hotter version of the recent released Range Rover Sport, which will probably be powered by the supercharged 5.0 L V8 unit we find on the XKR-S, XFR-S and XJR.

The render features a different front bumper, with lower air inlets, new, redesigned side vents, which  help the engine breathe easier.

We could probably see the car in showrooms, next year.

2013 Renault Clio RS


Of course we couldn't stay away from speculating the new Clio RS, because the normal version is so cool!

Here is our interpretation, what changed? Lower ride height, bigger wheels, sportier aero kit - more aggressive front bumper, with plenty space for the intercooler and rear diffuser with rectangular exhaust tips. Added a bigger rear trunk wing, also removed chrome trimmings from the doors and the rear hatch.

As for performance, after a long period, it seems the car might be powered by the 1.6 turbo charged unit, developing around 220HP.

The entire new design has been inspired by the spy shots floating around automotive blogs.
