Porsche 911 GT3 RS
There is No Substitute
Where to begin with the new 911 GT3? The chassis has been fully recalibrated to accept the 500 horsepower from the 4-liter, naturally-aspirated flat-6 engine driving the rear wheels. The suspension’s updated active shocks keep the wheels fully controlled whether that’s riding the bumps in the road, or confronting lateral g-loads. The body has been sculpted to retain the quintessential 911 shape, yet harness the air around it to even greater affect. read more >
So where to begin? The ignition start button would be best.Once you do, the feral howl coming from the sport-tuned exhaust acts like a cheerleader exhorting you to go faster, and push a bit harder. The steering is light, yet remarkably direct. Feedback is precise, almost prescient. Grip is prodigious, but not in a sticky, gummy way. It’s the kind of grip that gives you the confidence to point the car into corners with the least amount of speed scrubbed, or if lap times aren’t important, to go just a touch over the slip angle purely for laughs. Soon you’ll discover that purpose and pleasure become one and same when ensconced in the 911 GT3’s carbon-shelled racing seats.
Ask more of the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3, and it delivers. Every car has its limit, but finding it in the 911 GT3 won’t be easy. It simply likes to go, and keep going. The carbon ceramic brakes won’t fade even under the most intense lapping session. The chassis just seems to sharpen the more its pushed.
With a dry-sump lubricated engine, taken straight from the 911 RSR, with a stiffened crankshaft and updated valves with lower spring rates for better response, will run up and down its rev range until the fuel runs out without a single complaint. Speaking of revs, the 911 GT3 will pull from as low as 2000 RPMs, but the sweet spot lies between 5,500 and 8,000 RPMs. It’s no wonder this engine has helped Porsche win sports car races around the world over the past two seasons.
The track is where this car belongs. Accelerating without regret out of corners, rocketing down straights, braking deep into corners and kissing apexes is how you find its happy place, and yours.less >
