New 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 RS pummels the Nürburgring-Nordschleife into submission

Yeah, that’s a long title. You should be thanking us because by now, you’re no longer reading these words because you know exactly what this story is about. You’re welcome.

Should you still be here with us, know that the video depicts Porsche’s latest, greatest and perhaps final normally aspirated 911 GT3 RS doing what it was born to do. This explicitly wicked automobile packs a 520-horsepower 4.0-liter flat 6-cylinder engine positioned where it has always been. This masterpiece of engineering revs to an Everest-like 9,000 rpm. On its way to the peak, it belches out 346 lb.-ft. of torque at 6,000 rpm and the horses arrive at 8,250 rpm.

Other fun specs. The car will reach 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, is RWD with a 7-speed PDK ‘box and has a top speed of 312 km/h.

The recorded time of a single lap of the 20.6 km Green Hell was of 6:56.4 minutes. Porsche works race driver Kévin Estre is a new hero of ours – this is driving on the edge!
