Don't wait to come see this car! It will be on display at the museum for a limited time.
Motor Trend magazine describes the GT3RS as follows: “Whether on the track or through twisty mountain roads the GT3RS is more race bred exotic than conventional sports car. The aerodynamic downforce it creates plants the car so that it feels more stable as speed increases, improving its cornering ability as it ferociously grips the pavement. Its reflexes are sharp and its responses angrier than most road cars. It drives more like a weapon, and the sound of the 4-liter flat six north of 5000 rpm is absolutely intoxicating.”
Even though the GT3RS has “only” 500 HP, its light weight components, low center of gravity, and highly sophisticated aerodynamics and chassis tuning make it one of the ten fastest production cars in the world around the Nurburgring endurance track in Germany. The GT3RS is a street legal race car designed to the specifications of world-famous rally driver Walter Rohrl, and Porsche bills it as “The ultimate 911 for high-performance drivers; built by enthusiasts for enthusiasts.”
Some of the GT3RS technical highlights include: a titanium exhaust system, electromechanical rear wheel steering (which greatly enhances its stability through turns), center lock quick change racing wheels, front axle lift system, carbon ceramic composite brake rotors, bespoke titanium connecting rods, rear wing and front aero splitter (which produce 770 pounds of downforce at 186 mph), aerodynamic louvers in both front fenders (which increase downforce over the front axle and enhance the ram air into the engine side intakes), a one millimeter thick magnesium roof, carbon fiber body components, and racing seats also made of carbon fiber.
