New Porsche 911 GT3 RS: HRRHGHNN!

We hate to go all 2015-2016 on you all but: The want is very strong with this one.

Porsche has developed a speciality that all other OEMs would love to emulate: Creating countless trims for one car and making them all extremely relevant. Case in point: the new 911 GT3 RS.

The GT3 RS is the ultimate expression of the 911. Sure, the GT2 RS is psycho-fast, same for the Turbo S, but the GT3 RS is a raw and visceral car for those that want, and can afford, a most unfiltered version of speed.

Under the rear bonnet, the GT3 RS sports a normally-aspirated 4.0-litre flat-6 capable of 520 horsepower and revving to 9,000 rpm. It is matched to a specially calibrated 7-speed PDK transmission and all said, the car will reach 100 km/h in only 3.2 seconds.

For the true diehards, a Weissach package is offered and throws in additional carbon components as well as optional magnesium wheels bringing weight down to 1,430 kg, or on equal footing with a base 7-speed manual Carrera.

You can order yours now and expect it later in the year. The starting price is of $213,400.
