The teamwork between Pirelli and Porsche has resulted in four sporty tires for the Stuttgart manufacturer’s emblematic 911: P Zero Trofeo RS and P Zero Corsa for the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, as well as P Zero Trofeo R and P Zero Corsa for the 911 GT3.

These new tires have all been specifically designed to offer pleasant driving on the road as well as on the track. Among them, the P Zero Trofeo RS—the most performance-orientated product in the Pirelli range—has just been judged the best street-legal semi-slick tire for track driving by German magazine Auto Bild Sportscars, which recently compared several tires on a 911 GT3 RS.


The Porsche 911 GT3 RS posed several technical challenges in terms of tire development. The tires have to enhance the characteristics of the car on the road but also deliver performance close to that of a racing car, thanks to the extreme aerodynamics and lightness of the vehicle. These quite opposite demands are met by two new dedicated Pirelli tires, both in 275/35R20 size at the front and 335/30R21 size at the rear. The P Zero Trofeo RS is a semi-slick tire designed to achieve high performance on a circuit, while the P Zero Corsa is more road-oriented. The P Zero Trofeo RS for the Porsche 911 GT3 RS has an even wider working range than the P Zero Trofeo R, which derives mainly from Pirelli’s experience at the highest levels of world motorsport. The new tire allows drivers to push to the limit on the track right from the very first laps, thanks to its fast warm-up capability that offers immediate grip. It also resists stress even during the most demanding driving sessions, due to the reduced wear rate. This is thanks to a strengthened internal structure, which provides support even under significant aerodynamic loads, as well as a tread design that has been optimized through virtual simulation, not to mention dedicated materials derived from an asphalt rally compound. On top of its impressive performance in the dry, the P Zero Trofeo RS is designed to offer safe driving even in wet conditions.


The P Zero Trofeo R for the Porsche 911 GT3 also features technologies and processes that were born in the world of motorsport. It’s a tire that has continuously evolved, reaching its development peak in this latest version dedicated to Porsche, which also served as a basis for the P Zero Trofeo RS applied to the 911 GT3 RS. Both the P Zero Trofeo R and the P Zero Corsa for the 911 GT3 are available in 255/35R20 and 315/30R21 sizes.
