If I had to give you a listing of my all time favorite track cars, the Porsche 2011 GT3 RS would be numero uno. The GT3 RS was developed by Porsche as a harder edged track version of their famed 911. It’s got the speed of a feather weight boxer and the reflexes of an aerobatic stunt pilot. Simply put, the car is astounding. The standard (if you can call it that) GT3 RS produces 450 hp from it’s 3.8-liter naturally aspirated flat six, and is good for a 192 mph top speed, but straight line speed isn’t what the GT3 RS is all about. What this car does is provide to their owners the greatest melding of man and machine that one could ask for. The feedback through the steering wheel is superb, the levels of cornering grip are amazing and unlike cars like Nissan’s famed GT-R, the GT3 RS is a true drivers car with a traditional 6-speed manual gearbox.
For 2011 it’s now rumored that Porsche is going to release a GT3 RS Limited Edition with a 4.0-liter flat six engine that is similar to that of the Porsche 911 RSR. Power output is said to be around 500 hp, with power being put to the pavement by way of Porsche’s new PDK-S double clutch gearbox. Right now the 2011 GT3 RS Limited Edition is still very much a rumor, but stay tuned because we’ll bring you more information on Porsche’s newest hot rod as soon as we get it.
