We already knew Lego’s new Porsche 911 GT3 RS Technic set weighed in at a whopping 2,704 pieces, and measures almost two feet long when fully constructed. But the complex build takes so long that even an accelerated timelapse video of it being assembled is still over 25 minutes. But it’s not like you have anything…
Lego just officially confirmed that its massive 2,704-piece Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS set will be available on June 1 for the hefty sum of $300. Originally teased at the Nuremberg Toy Fair wearing dazzle camo to hide its curves and final design, the creation is quite simply a work of art.
When I first saw the picture, I just assumed that the Gulf-liveried Porsche 911 GT3 RS was getting a little drink since, you know, Porsches are water-cooled now. Apparently, that’s not the procedure for filling the radiator tank, though, and this brand-new €250,000 car somehow just rolled into the water. Oops.
No music. No British car reviewer screaming in your ear about steering feel. No commentary whatsoever. It’s just the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS, flat out.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is one of the most hyped cars of 2015, but I’m not buying this whole idea.
You can only drive a 911 GT3 RS properly on a public road if you manage to wake up earlier than the people who start bloviating on the radio at 6 AM. But Evo’s latest proves that it’s worth doing for the sound alone.
The scene is Weissach, Porsche’s legendary and also intimidating proving ground. There’s a 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and inside is Chris Harris—a man who hates flappy paddles and has just two hours to distill the essence of Porsche’s most evolved 911. It’s is a brutally fast machine, considering it is a hold-out…
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It’s one of the most anticipated cars of the year. Just how great is it? It’s really great, as our man Chris Harris just found out.
[Yes that’s Mark Webber of F1, Le Mans, and helmet-puking fame caning a new 991 Porsche 911 GT3 RS around the Nürburgring. Bridge To Gantry got this shot and has more pictures right here along with some extra info.]
The 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS has a 4.0 with 500 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque, a lighter body and a top speed of 198 mph. The 2016 Ruf RGT has a 4.2 with 525 horsepower and 369 lb-ft, a lighter body, and a top speed of 200 mph. Plus a manual, and the widest rear tires Michelin makes.
The 997-generation Porsche 911 GT3 RS is one of the cars that makes us drool on our pillows at night. Sharkwerks does a conversion that gives it a 4.1 liter engine and a ton more power. Here's what that looks like when drifting.
4.0 liters. 493 horsepower. 3.3 seconds to 60. 198 MPH top speed. This is the lighter, faster, louder, and more raucous 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Just look at how cool this is.
The new 4.0 liter, 493 horsepower Porsche 911 GT3 RS is here, in all of its glory.
No, we don't have pictures of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS (though we have seen it before). But what we do have are the specs. How does a 4.0 liter flat-six with 500 horsepower, seven-speed PDK, wider wheels, a wider body, and lightweighting sound to you?
Porsche is looking forward to the official launch of the 2015 911 GT3 RS, likely after stuffing car writers with so much wine and shrimp that they think going automatic-only makes sense. Screw that. Here's how the car looks in the raw, unfiltered wild.
Joe Rogan doesn't just own a Porsche 911 GT3 RS, he owns a Sharkwerks tuned GT3 RS, and there's one detail about it that gets sports cars so very right.
Just look at this. This is a road car. But if you didn't know that, seeing and hearing it going around a race track would make you think it's a pure bred race car. But instead, it's the 911 GT3 RS. It has a PDK transmission, it doesn't sound turbocharged, and it'll be incredible.
With the recent bruhaha surrounding the engines of the Porsche 911 GT3, we seem to have forgotten that there's a GT3 RS coming. Is this it leaked in scale model form? Because it looks damn amazing. And wait, are those intercooler inlets we see?
