In this paper, we consider the following Schrödinger-Poisson system
$ \begin{equation*} \left\{ \begin{array}{ll} -\triangle u+u+K(x)\phi(x)u = a(x)|u|^{p-2}u, \ \ \ \ x\in { \mathbb{R}}^{3},\\ -\triangle \phi = K(x)u^2, \ \ \ \ x\in { \mathbb{R}}^{3}, \end{array} \right. \end{equation*} $
where
$ p\in [4,6) $
,
$ a(x)\ge \lim_{|x|\to\infty}a(x) = a_{\infty}>0 $
and
$ \lim_{|x|\to\infty}K(x) = 0 $
. Lack of any symmetry property of
$ a $
and
$ K $
, we present some new sufficient conditions to guarantee the existence of a positive ground state solution of above system. Our results extend and complement the ones of [G. Cerami, G. Vaira, J. Differential Equations 248 (2010)] in which
$ p\in (4,6) $
,
$ a $
and
$ K $
need to satisfy additional integrability conditions.
