This is what happens when you combine Porsche's most extreme road car with its motor racing know-how.
For most, the Porsche 911 GT3 would surely represent the ultimate road car. Packing a generous 350kW punch and weighing just 1430kg, it will fire you from 0-100km in 3.5sec on the way to a top speed of 315km/h. And that's before you so much as mention its wonderfully direct steering, deliciously responsive handling or its magnificent brakes, which are so powerful they tend to outshine its ferocious accelerative ability.
For some hardy souls, though, the 911 GT3 is perhaps a little too cultivated. And these are the admittedly wealthy enthusiast drivers at whom the new and more heavily focused 911 GT3 RS is squarely aimed. To be produced in a limited run of 2000, it is the latest in an illustrious line ofRennsport models developed by Porsche Motorsport to homologate go-fast components for its dedicated race cars, in this case the recently unveiled 911 GT3 R.
True to its motorsport roots, the 911 GT3 RS is all about function. Nothing is superfluous. Every development adopted over the 911 GT3 is dedicated to elevating it on to a highest possible performance plane in the search of faster laps times. Like so many of the more memorable road going Porsche models down through the years, it has been conceived first and foremost as a race car, complete with optional roll cage, six-point harnesses and fire extinguisher. And yet it is completely road legal; you can drive it to your race circuit of choice, run hot laps all day long and then head back home in it.
