Porsche’s Latest 911 GT3 RS Video Is All About Maximum Track Performance

2019 Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Porsche’s been busy recently, cranking out one high-performance 911 after another. First, it came out with the most powerful 911 of all time, the 911 GT2 RS. Then, it followed that act with the new 911 GT3 RS, which somehow manages to improve on the brand’s formula of making track-ready cars.

If you are one of the few individuals out there dismisses the 911 GT3 RS as another fast 911, the video below was made for you.

Porsche’s YouTube channel has been making good videos recently, ranging from top five lists to more laid back items that don’t really have a purpose besides being enjoyable to watch. The automaker’s latest video fits into the latter category and sees a 911 GT3 RS being hustled around the Lausitzring track, where it is supposed to feel right at home.

Instead of having music playing in the background, Porsche decided to let the GT3 RS’ engine provide the soundtrack – and the naturally-aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six is up to the job. The motor still produces one of the more wholesome sounds on the road and it’s a joy to listen to it sing all the way up to 9,000 rpm.

Porsche also found a nice way to highlight some of the GT3 RS’ more notable features, like the carbon ceramic brakes, adaptive suspension and the engine itself.

So, you might want to put on a good pair of headphones and let the 911 GT3 RS howl drown out any background noises.

    Nothing but a mish mash of noises all strung together. Their was no nice continuous engine sound by itself. Sorry Porsche – this was a waste of time.

    Funny, just last year I though the GT3 was the coolest car ever and now, suddenly, the 991 generation is looking rather dated and old. Also, it didn’t help that just the other day there was a GT3 vs. R8 V10 comparison and as amazing as the GT3 sounds, the R8’s V10 noise (music?) was much, much, MUCH better!
