Times of India reported that German performance carmaker, Porsche, has launched its new 911 GT3 RS sports vehicle in India with a starting ex-showroom price tag of Rs 2.75 crore. The new model comes with 20 more horsepower than the last GT3 RS - 520, and with a 346 pound-feet of torque.

The refreshed Porsche 911 GT3 RS hasn't even been available for a week, but already it's time to take a peek at the future of Porsche's half-century-old sports vehicle.

Achleitner added that although he still "clings to the flat-six engine" he could now imagine an electric motor in a 911. But we already know that the price at the dealerships later this year will be around $187,500.

Porsche claims the new GT3 RS handles better than before thanks to recalibrated rear-axle steering, while front-end grip and response through the steering wheel are improved courtesy of newly developed Michelin tyres. "Two years ago I'd have said no way".

"I drove the prototype of our coming electric sports auto, the Mission E", said Achleitner, "and it was a very compelling experience". "Today I wouldn't categorically rule it out".

The new 911 will also feature new driving assistance technologies, but don't worry a fully autonomous 911 isn't in the cards.

There's no doubt the 911 will be more advanced than its predecessor but Achleitner said its driver assistance systems will have to fit with the character of the auto. "What's crucial, rather, is that every innovation be offered in a typical Porsche manifestation".

An official sneak peek at the next-generation Porsche 911 (992) has been released by the German automaker.

The Cayenne, Macan and other cars might keep the lights on, but the 911 is and always will be the automaker's centerpiece. Pricing is yet to be announced, but the existing range starts at £77,891 for the Carrera model, and culminates with the ballistic, limited-edition GT2 RS at £207,506.
