The GT3 RS is the distilled essence of the 911. Motorsport technology in its purest form, this RS made a brief appearance in our service facility as it passed through the PDI process. With 500 hp and a stunning 0 - 100 kph time of 3.3 seconds, the GT3 RS sets the benchmark of what a sports car should be.
Every detail has been considered, from weight-saving considerations such as the painted on Porsche crest, to the light weight makeup of the interior door handles. Alcantara leather provides superior grip on the steering wheel, and the searts are constructed completely of carbonfibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) with a carbon-weave finish. Under the skin is a chassis with true motorsport DNA. Rear axle steering, and dynamic engine mounts mean you can push the GT3 RS to the limit and beyond. The electronic active damping system offers continuous adjustment of the damping force on each wheel based on the current driving situation and your driving style. At the press of a button, you can select between two different modes. ‘Normal’ mode is designed for sporty driving on public roads and on wet racetracks. ‘Sport’ mode is especially tuned for maximum lateral acceleration and offers the best possible traction on the track. The cross-drilled ceramic brake discs are 410 mm at the front and 390 mm at the rear for formidable braking performance.
In short, the GT3 RS is a pure sports car – no compromises. It not only embodies the Porsche philosophy, but also the Porsche Centre Oakville philosophy. Not to just be the best, but to be the benchmark for others to strive for.
