As I’m a complete sucker for any Porsche that has the famous “RS” badge stuck on, I couldn’t not post this great little video up gleaned off the Porsche youtube channel.
The reason for the video is that the all new 911 GT3 RS is quite possible the most viscous and potent track car ever built for the street by Porsche. Gladly it looks as if Porsche have gone back to the early air-cooled RS roots by building a track car for the road; rather than a road car for the track. As you may already now the RS history stretches back pretty much all the way back into the 60′s and then appeared on a production car in official form in 1973 with the 911 2.7 RS.
The RS nomenclature then continued through the epic 964, beautiful 993 and dodgy 996 model years, all the way through to today’s second generation 997 model recently introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
So click on and enjoy this vid as much as I did…I badly want to head out in my car now!! Must finish the garden first though…
