Despite appearances this is not a racing car, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is definitely a road car. If the near 700bhp GT2 RS is the maddest 911 of the bunch, the GT3 RS is the most tactile and the most focused on agility. It takes the already razor-sharp 911 GT3 as its basis, and turns it up past 11 to somewhere around 20 on the extreme road car scale, wider, lower, and bristling with bespoke chassis bits and aero addenda. It’s also the ultimate 911 without turbos, the GT3 and GT3 RS remain naturally aspirated, for a more precise power delivery, a higher rev ceiling and a unique, evocative sound. This latest GT3 RS is the most powerful naturally aspirated 911 road car ever, with 513bhp from its four litre engine. This is the final 991 model to get a ‘991.2’ update, and it’s not a bad way to bow out.
The new 991.2 GT3 RS’s predecessor was the 991.1 GT3 RS of 2015, a car that was an accomplished sports car that at the time it seemed difficult to imagine how Porsche could improve upon it, but its engineers have developed a variety of incremental updates that add up to a lot. The GT3 RS weighs around 1430kg, but the optional Weissach pack can cut weight by as much as a further 28kg with innovative composite anti-roll bars and suspension components, a CFRP roof to replace the magnesium panels ordinarily fitted to the RS, a similarly flashy carbon weave finish for the bonnet, and the option of forged magnesium wheels.
This new 2020 registered GT3 RS is presented in white with black leather and alcantara interior and is equipped with the optional Weissach pack. This car was fitted with over £25,000 worth of extras including Clubsport package, Porsche ceramic brakes, cruise control, front axel lift system, reversing camera, BOSE sound system, chrono package with lap trigger preparation and a white dial, satin black alloy wheels, Porsche dynamic light system, white instrument dials, illuminated door sills, sun visor and door trims finished in alcantara and high gloss black outer door handles. The customer then requested that the car be completely covered in PPF paint protection film. This involved every panel to be fully machined polished, all stickers removed and then covered in PPF before new decals to be re-fitted on top as per Porsche Reading's instructions.
