An aurally loud and brash car like this Porsche 996 911 GT3 Mk 1 (or 'Sunkist', as it's informally known) needs an appropriately lurid colour to accompany it...
Mind you, it has all the ability to back up its distinctive colour choice so you'll never mistake it for some pastel-loving pansy.

The 2010 Carrera Cup season looms and Porsche has readied their latest weapon for the race season, the 911 GT3 Cup Car. Porsche is unique in that it has integrated its Motorsport division into its R&D and production facility. So with the introduction of the latest 997 cars earlier this year, it is not surprising to find the Cup Car being introduced as well.

Hindsight they say is 20:20 and by the time Porsche attempted the 996 GT3 for the first time they had already three generations worth of RS (Porschespeak for Renn Sport) versions. The original 2.7 RS was the true stripped down racer and back then Porsche was certainly not in the luxury game, all their cars being serious driving machines.

It has become clearer now what Porsche has in mind for these specialised models after revealing its new GT3 and GT3RS to the world. Porsche has certainly not forgotten about the RS enthusiast when they killed off the first GT3.

CCC STATUS REPORT for Porsche 964 Carrera RS
Porsche had made the 911 2.7 RS before the 964 RS and so continues a tradition of lightweight homologation specials. Porsche introduced the 964 RS in 1992 the second RS in Porsche's history.

Porsche created a monster of a GT2 the last time around with the 996 GT2 and earned the unenviable nickname of 'widow maker' and for good reason too. So it was with great circumspect that we approached the third generation GT2 (997) now with a whopping 530 bhp sent to just the rear wheels.
It is now clear that the GT range meaning the GT2 and GT3 and GT3 RS are meant for the true hardcore Porsche-philes. The GT2 is derived from the 911 Turbo sans all wheel drive and PTM (Porsche Traction Management).

This might be an odd way to begin a review, but it adds a hidden dimension to the 911 GT3. Legendary world rally champ, Walter Röhrl is Porsche's development driver and he is instrumental in getting the GT3 around the Nurburgring circuit in the fastest time possible. More importantly he is the complete development driver, because he knows exactly what needs tweaking to get the fast lap times.

THE PORSCHE 911 TURBO
Porsche’s flagship the 911 Turbo has also become the giant slayer of sorts in the kingdom of extreme supercars. In an arena surrounded by supercar greats like Ferrari and Lamborghini, the 911 Turbo’s relatively demure appearance is deceiving.

Stuttgart. With effect from October 2006, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG of Stuttgart, Germany, launches the new 911 GT3 RS on the European market. This purist variant of the GT3 is particularly suited for use on the track. The GT3 RS is distinguished by its performance capability and the unadulterated driving experience enjoyed with a racing car, but also meets all requirements for road-legal sports cars.
