Launched three years after the first 911 GT3 RS, the 997.1 RS uses the same approach as its predecessor-start with a GT3, make it more track-focused-but it takes things further. The bodywork and rear track are wider, it’s lighter thanks to more carbon-fiber and plastic in place of glass, and the suspension was revised. The contemporary GT3’s 3.6-liter 415-hp Mezger engine was retained too, and for the first time in a GT3 RS, adaptive dampers, a switchable sports exhaust, and traction control were fitted. The ultimate track weapon, easily adaptable to everyday street use.
“RS is 911 distilled, a concentrated hit of rear-engined Porsche adrenaline and we are absolutely hooked.” âCar magazine, October 2006
One of the finest GT3 RS’s we have seen!
